They met playing Dungeons and Dragons over 3 years ago, fell in love over their love of all things comic books & movies, and got engaged at Stanley Park last year. These two are so genuine, authentic and real with their love for each other. When asked what is one dream that they have for their future together, they both said they dream of lots of love – and that’s exactly what you see when you look at these two together.
You can check out their glowy golden hour Fort Langley Fall Engagement Session from last spring up on the blog by clicking the link. We met down by the old CN Station in the Fort – the sun filters into this spot SO beautifully and it’s one of my favourites in the area to shoot at! After that, we decided to finish up our session down by the water and among the beautiful spring blossoms. I loved exploring all over Fort Langley with them!
In all honesty, I’m a sucker for any excuse to sneak off to this venue. What could be more perfect than a Fall Morgan Creek Golf Course wedding? I always love incredible gardens & greenery at Morgan Creek and it really shows off it’s true colours in the autumn months. I was so excited to learn this was the venue these two had chosen for their special day. What made it that much better was knowing I got to help capture but also celebrate these two tying the knot. Colleen is honestly one of the sweetest people I’ve met and Dominic has this way of making you feel welcome & comfortable all while putting you at ease with his humour. It’s not hard to see why these two are drawn to each other.
The forecast was calling for rain and the clouds were threatening all day, as it often is in the Lower Mainland – even in the summer we can’t always escape the rain. As guests pulled out their umbrellas and took shelter under them, hiding under makeshift jacket-forts, they made a call to go ahead with the outdoor ceremony. It was risky but around here a little rain doesn’t scare us. The officiant (who is from Young Hip & Married and gave what may have been the most personal, memorable and giving ceremonies I’ve seen this season – I loved watching her honour their love and help focus their loved ones on supporting them) gathered everyone in despite the rain. Dominic and his groomsmen braved the downpour and made their trek down the aisle however as the bridesmaids began their walks the rain almost seemed to lighten for a second.
The exact moment Colleen & her father left their shelter to walk down the aisle, the clouds parted, the sun peaked through and the rain lifted. It was meant to be and a perfect well-wish from the world on this day for these two for their Fall Morgan Creek Golf Course Wedding.
I had such a blast getting to know these two and capturing their day. They sat me with the bride’s parents at reception and I have never felt more welcome at a wedding! These two are so kind-hearted and I loved being a part of their wedding day.
Here’s a curated look at a few of my favourites from their Fall Morgan Creek Golf Course Wedding Gallery…
