I knew there was something special about Tasha and John when I first met them. They are the full package, Adventurous, athletic, intelligent, driven, yet with a passion for always doing the right thing and the easily ability to throw their head back in laughter.

They worked hard on their wedding.  With the support of family, they created a beautiful ceremony in the meaningful location of Tasha’s Mom and Step-father’s Fanny Bay home.  This involved numerours trips form Victoria, and days spent working in the yard.  When Tasha walked down the aisle, beaming, and with a family friend providing a romantic soundtrack, it was clear that every effort was worthwhile for a marriage they will always work hard at honoring.

After the sun-kissed ceremony, the bride and groom joined their guests at a classy and original affair on the grounds of The Kingfisher Resort & Spa. Guests were welcomed with Martini’s, and mingled while appy’s were served. The evening proceeded in a cocktail party style, with the addition of a incredible seafood spread and the very original mashed potato bar, which was a huge hit. The evening was sprinkled with speeckes, cake cutting and dancing.

It was at the reception that I really understood the true love that Tasha and John bring to their marriage. They say a good way to get to know who a person is is to look at who they surround themselves with. Tasha and John were surrounded by relationships they had since childhood, and those that were newer, had a unique depth to them. Every person there was radiating joy in their direction and Tasha and John were beaming –  so at ease with the emotion and love that surrounded them. It truly is what one dreams of, dancing at your wedding, surrounded by people who have been part of your growth and who you feel such a strong authentic connection with. I know that these tw, bring so much strength and love to their marriage and it was such a true honor to witness it.

Thank you to everyone who was part of the magic, especially the new bride and groom. xoxox – Karen
