Anita & Jarid – High school sweethearts


This one time at bandcamp….

At that is how their story starts. These high school sweethearts, who first noticed each other on a school band trip, made everyone ridiculously joyous when they exchanged vows in a stunning ceremony at Jarid’s parents’ home in the Comox Valley. After 7 1/2 years of togetherness, these two became engaged on a Christmas Day when Anita was 5 months pregnant with their adorable son.  Family is what it is all about for these two and the love and connection they have with their son, their parents, siblings and their chosen family was on full display at their wedding. The food, the cake, the details, were all pulled together by those that love them. These people also created an incredible environment of fun.

The day flowed along seamlessly as it was buoyed by laughter. I was so happy to capture this wedding, and appreciated deeply the sense of warmth, the belly laughs and the down-to-earth easy going nature of this magnificent couple. Anita and Jarid, you are lovely – funny, kind, smart. I feel it, and by the love on display at your wedding your friends and family have for you – they do too.
