River Rock Casino Resort Wedding | Richmond, BC |


I couldn’t love these two and their River Rock Casino Resort Wedding more. Natasha & I met almost two years ago now (hard to believe – time flies when life is good!!) – she was one of the chiropractors at my new day job (YES to those who wonder – I am crazy and work full time both with my photography and also have a day job). Needless to say, as soon as I met Natasha I felt like we hit it off. If it wasn’t her genuine kindness that drew me in, her energy would’ve either way. Natasha is probably one of the most magnetic, passionate, motivated people I know – and if that wasn’t impressive enough she’s also probably the most active person I know too – I’ve seen her do chin ups like they’re no problem haha. There was no doubt in my mind that whatever man stole her heart had to be equally as awesome at life as she was. Little did I know at that time she had already met her match but I soon came to learn more about the mystery man from the US that had stole her heart. They had met in chiropractic school and though they didn’t start dating till later on, there was a magnetic connection between the two of them from the start. You know the kind – where you feel drawn to the person – a kind of connection that can’t be planned or fought. This two were meant to meet and made for each other.

The Wedding Day:

With Natasha hailing from Canada and Ben from America, they knew regardless of where they tied the knot that it would require travel for many of their friends and family who were spread across both Canada and the US. The beautiful River Rock Casino Resort was the perfect solution for them – just a quick hop over to YVR making it accessible to out-of-town loved ones – I really loved their venue choice!

The day of the wedding it was teasing rain – we came prepared with umbrellas galore but the rain stopped seconds before their First Look and didn’t appear again until the last moments of the ceremony and it certainly didn’t damper any spirits that day among these two. From their ocean side First Look and Portraits, to the end of the reception with the chair dance/Hora and their romantic sunset portraits – their day was just the best time.

When I asked them what is one dream they have for the future together, they said to stay happy & healthy and explore the world together – well I can’t wait to watch these two conquer the world together!
