saturday, i had the extreme pleasure of being present at evan and marti’s beautiful and emotional wedding. i was second-shooting for amber hughes of freeform photo, and am so grateful that i was able to share in this emotional day!

the entire day took place at aberthau mansion over in kitsilano, and seriously, that place is just a dream for photographers! it has so much space (inside and out) with beautiful little rooms and nooks, etc. marti and evan did such a wonderful job at planning the details of the wedding and pulling everything together into a beautiful, cohesive theme that suited the mansion. i loved their table settings — simple flower arrangements in mis-matched tea pots and little tea cups.

just one of the many amazing rooms at aberthau…

the girls getting ready in the library…

i have a lot of ceremony shots coming up here, because i just couldn’t choose. look at how lit-up everyone is, watching marti walk down the aisle… the smile on evan’s face… so sweet…

marti’s mom walked her down the aisle, and i was so touched by the way her mother looked at marti, and then at evan… it was clear she has such love for both of them…

there was so much laughter during the ceremony…

and so many tears… it was so beautiful and touching, i seriously couldn’t stop crying. to the point where i was in that state of shaking/convulsing crying… so dramatic. (the same thing happened during the speeches, and i’ve never cried during speeches. i almost always cry during the ceremony, but the speeches… that’s over the top) but seriously, watching all the love everyone had for each other, and listening to their vows… i’m getting all warm and emotional, just thinking of it…

these guests were seriously kookoo for cameras. i love this one because i’m taking a picture of him taking a picture of her taking a picture of someone else…

amber, working her portrait magic…

i want to post this even though it’s a cheesy portrait because marti just looks so beautiful here, but she’s even more beautiful inside. i heard so many stories of how kind she is, and by the end of the day, was pretty much prepared to beg her to be my friend.

i know i’m about to go overboard with ring shots, but i had so much fun with them on saturday! this one was taken on one of the guests’ clutch handbags. such a unique texture and look…

i love this one so much…

i am posting this one because i wanted to say it was basically impossible to take this photo… every single page with the date had the word “murder” or “killed” or “suicide” or “genocide” or some equally horrific headline. and i want to say i found that funny, but that sounds so awful…

in order to get marti and evan to kiss, guests had to sing a song… here’s that old classic favourite, “i’m a little teapot.”

i tried to take a photo of each guest there, and i’d just like to state that this was one of the most attractive groups ever!

marti and evan, thank you so much for allowing me to share in this wonderful day, you two are clearly such incredible people, and i wish you so many good things.
