A Beautiful Elopement
July 22, 2010
I love a good elopement story. I bet sometimes when the pressure of all this wedding planning rubbish really gets to you that the thought of it is a pretty attractive one huh? Well an elopement can be beautiful, meaningful and gorgeous – it’s not just all running off to Vegas and getting married by Elvis.
Sarah & Travis decided that elopement was for them as they wanted their wedding to be on their own terms – they wanted to do it their own way. The pair live Seattle but they hopped on a float plan to Canada to elope. Their photographers, Emmy & Aaron of
E/A Photography, told me “When they called us they told us they wanted something different and sexy for their images so we really wanted to capture the emotion of their love in the images. We did the shoot in Bastion Square in downtown Victoria and then at the old E&N railway roundhouse. Right around the corner from the roundhouse is a bunch of condo developments and in the middle is a little hillside exploding in wildflowers – perfect spot for a champagne picnic! These two are total sweet hearts and so crazy about each other. We barely had to say a word they were just so into each other. We love their story of meeting at a wedding and just knowing they were meant to be together. ”
Thanks to Emmy & Aaron for sharing this beautiful day with us

A Private Hiking Wedding: Jordan & Michael
September 8, 2012
Jordan & Michael wanted a wedding that truely reflected them and the things they love, so they grabbed their children and were married in private on top of a mountain in Canada. "Our inspiration was definitely nature and our love of hiking", explained the bride. "We chose Gros Morne National Park in the beautiful province of Newfoundland and Labrador known for its mountainous terrain and unbelievable views. This in our minds made the perfect backdrop for our quiet intimate ceremony. We knew that hiking boots were a must so why not include them on our special day? We kept our attire simple and clean and focused on more important details like the photography and the food!"

Epic Las Vegas Elopement: Ainsley & Sebastien
January 2, 2014
When I featured Ainsley and Sebestien's engagement shoot in September I dubbed it "the coolest engagement shoot to date". I was pretty sure that their wedding would be suitably kick ass too but nothing (and I mean nothing!) could have prepared me for this.
While I was hanging out with their wedding photographer Janneke Storm in Queensland, she started to tell me more about their upcoming elopement in Las Vegas. I made her promise then and there to send me the photos to blog afterwards. Luckily for me (and you!) she did.
A Modern Wedding on an Aeroplane: Robyn & Tom
August 2, 2012
Both air traffic controllers, and with a mutual attention to detail and love for planes, Robyn & Tom were thrilled when they were allowed to get married on a Pacific Western plane at Edmonton Aviation Museum. "It took a lot of convincing but the museum were gracious to allow the bride and groom to use the airplane", explained their Canadian wedding photographer Elizabeth of ENV Photography. "Guests were assigned seats on a seating chart that mimicked the chart that you pick your seat from when booking your plane ticket! Prior to the groom walking down, his sons and daughter walked down the aisle and handed out cookies to all the guests - just like a real airline!"

Amazingly, they managed to do this for just $1000. They didn't have a reception and they only booked their photographer for a couple of hours.
