The islands off the coast of Vancouver are some of my favourite places in the entire world and Gambier Island, hosting this Camp Fircom wedding is no exception! Julie + Drew had an early fall wedding and were absolute champs about the insane weather that came to them! We all took a ferry from Horseshoe bay over to Gambier island on the Friday night to start off the celebrations, it was a little rainy but everyone was excited to arrive. Getting settled into our cabins, enjoying dinner together and then informal open speeches started the weekend off. Saturday morning came around and activities were open for everyone, luckily the rain held off for these. There is kayaking, paddle boarding, archery, lawn games and more! I love the community and atmosphere Camp Fircom allows for. Being able to enjoy the entire weekend with your guests is so special!
Julie brought her late mothers wedding dress to include her in the day and take a moment to be with her. It was such a beautifully personal moment of the day.
When we arrived to the ceremony site the rain was already pooling in the Pavillon but that didn’t stop everyone from sharing in laughter and tears with Julie + Drew! They wrote personal vows that were so so special. They kissed and walked down the aisle to sprinkles flying!
Portraits on the bluff were wind swept and intimate. I will never forget standing in the rain with them while we laughed, danced and just embraced the moment. It is times like these that make me the most excited about doing this job! Thank you to my amazing clients for making these times so damn wonderful! To finish off their
The rest of the day was filled with more emotions as we heard speeches, had first dances and then finally when everyone let loose at the party! Party photos have increasingly become my favourite part of a wedding day. When everyone lets loose and just enjoys and their personalities shine through! Julie + Drew had an incredible crew of people and the night was an absolute blast!
I cannot wait to hang out with these friends again soon! Check out their day and leave them some love.
