Newly weds, Jo + Andrews on the steps of the Law Courts at Robson Square in Vancouver
Boom! And like that, Fall is basically come and gone… the summer just a memory. But lets jump back in time to September, just for a moment, when it was warm and perfect in Vancouver. Specifically, cast your mental gaze back to Saturday the tenth… 25 degrees, ocean breeze, flips flops and tank tops… classic Vancouver summer. Perfect day for a wedding!
Joanne and Andrew tied the knot at the Law Courts (The Supreme Court of Canada, to be specific), at Robson Square, smack in the middle of downtown Van. Its a great venue, inside and out. Bright, airy, super cool architecture with lots of space to move, plus a bomber dance floor, which got used. Hard. Just check the pictures… lets just say, these folks like to move.
The deets: Jo and I met at BCIT while we were in J-school (journalism, that is). Jo may hold the record for the earliest wedding booking I’ve ever taken. Basically, as soon as she learned I was a wedding photog, it was on. No worries that, at the time, her wedding was nearly three years away! The time did come, however and man, was it worth the wait. We had a blast. Joanne’s extended family – some flying in from as far afield as the Philippines – was an absolute joy to photograph! Andrew’s father’s speech and presentation of custom-made Bavarian bells was perhaps the sweetest I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing. But, enough talk, all you need to know is, there ain’t no party like a Filipino wedding!
Here are some pictures from the day.
Its been ages since I posted to the blog… but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy. Lots on the go these days, which is good, because it means there’s a wealth of stuff I need to get up! As we head into winter (my first in Toronto…) I have a feeling there will be a lot more indoors time in my future… so expect a blast of blog activity over the next couple weeks!
