Comox Beach wedding – McKinnon Photography

Tags: , , , , ,

I am so excited to share this wedding with you. It was the last wedding of my season and can’t think of a better way to bookmark summer 2016. It was a dream wedding, my favourite kind. A wedding that had it’s focus on the things that matter the most to the bride and groom – family, friends, making “it” official and great music.

Andrea and Mike met when their two friend groups decided to meet up at a bar to catch the band Boondock. Mike sauntered over to Andrea, and actually said, “Come here often?” Well, that classic line worked its magic and the two quickly realized they shared not only great taste in music but some notable chemistry. They had a date shortly after and have been inseparable ever since.

With their family, including their adorable son and friends by their side, these two didn’t let the rain interfere with an incredible celebration of love and connection.  Andrea and Mike have an incredible friend group, many of who helped make the day happen (and are people who I have had the pleasure of photographing before). I am inspired by the way they look out for each other. Clearly, a valuable ingredient for a successful marriage.
