Chelsea & Trey

Chelsea and Trey are that amazing, easy going couple that all couples strive to be like (especially on their wedding day!) When I first sat down with Chelsea to discuss her wedding plans I was blown away at how organized and efficient she was with all the details. She has that great ability to be easy going and structured at the same time (two qualities I wish I had more of at the same time!) I had known Trey from our home town, but didn’t really know what his personality was like, and seeing him again for the first time in years made it clear why these two were getting married. They are both just so easy going and fun! (If you want to check out their beautiful & fun engagement photos you can do so here!)

There were a few small hiccups during the day (like when we got stuck a few cars behind an accident on the way to go and put on her dress and finish her makeup, making us an hour late for the ceremony) or when the bride and groom decided to jump on a trampoline right before dinner and the groom jumped through the train on the dress ripping it! But these two didn’t bat an eye – they just made the best of it because it was their wedding day! No meltdowns or hysterics, just another story to add to all the memories and great times that encompassed their day!

I think my favorite part of the whole day, hands down, was their first dance as man and wife. The way that they looked at one another, held one another and danced with one another made my heart melt. These two have an unshakeable bond that will last them throughout their many happy, married years together! Thanks so much for letting me be such a big part of your beautiful and eventful day!

Corinna & Ben

I first met Corinna a few years ago when we were working at a restaurant together. I liked her bubbly personality, her infectious smile, where she came from (a small town in B.C. like me) and the fact that she was a contortionist (so random!) A few months in to working together we realized we had something more in common than just some regular similarities – her best friend was my boyfriend in University’s ex-girlfriend! Such a small world, and all the more reason to be friends and have more to talk about!

When Corinna and Ben first started dating it was obvious how crazy they were about one another. He had that Noah for Allie in the Notebook sparkle when he looked at her, and I’d never seen her more happy – I remember one day after I was done work, I saw Ben sitting at the bar waiting for Corinna to be done and we chatted for a bit and I think I said something to the effect of how happy I was for the two of them, and he looked over her way and said “She really is something, isn’t she?” I had a feeling then that they would be one of those couples that lasted and, if it’s possible, a few years later on their wedding day, the way they looked at one another was just as incredible as those first few months as a couple. They are those wonderfully amazing (and not to mention, ridiculously good looking) people that every photographer dreams about having and I was so honored to be a part of their day and to revel in their love for one another. Enjoy the highlights of their day, and all of Corinna’s amazing and detailed Pinterest decorations! Getting Ready Accommodations: Cedar View Estate
