This sweet snowy Bloedel Conservatory winter wedding day was picture perfect. It had been snowing heavily over the last 24 hours (a bit of an anomaly in the lower mainland) and cars & buses alike were having trouble navigating through the snowfall – surprise surprise! Fortunately everyone in the wedding party including myself were able to make it up the hill at Queen Elizabeth Park to the highest point in the city of Vancouver – the domed lush paradise known as the Bloedel Conservatory. It was an absolute winter wonderland for their micro-wedding. R&A had chosen the winter solstice (December 21 – also known as the shortest day of the year) to tie the knot! It was magical. The contrast between the snowy winter wonderland outside and the lush tropical paradise inside made this an absolute dream to photograph. (I also really enjoyed the technical challenges of this wedding day shooting in almost complete darkness for the ceremony & portraits inside!)
Usually I do caution couples from booking the evening time slot at Bloedel in the winter (this leaves you in the dark after sunset for ceremony & post-ceremony portraits typically). However, it couldn’t have been more perfect and as always the staff at the conservatory were so warm & accommodating. I really feel like it enhanced the romantic intimate vibes of the wedding for these two.
