Despite it being late December, the bride and groom were determined to have a first look at Miracle Beach in Black Creek, on Vancouver Island. After days of storms, the skies cleared and some warm(ish) air blew in. The first look is one of my favorite moments of the day; it is really emotional watching the groom take in the ‘wow’ factor of his bride, and observing the look they share with each other as it hits them that today is the day they make their vows to each other. After some beautiful portraits, we headed to the other highlight of the day, the ceremony, with the church family they grew up with. The ceremony brought laughter, tears and inspiration and an incredible feeling of warmth and love for these childhood friends, who together, found a love that felt like home.
