This past weekend marked the first wedding of 2013, a lovely winter wedding to brighten the slow season and add a little extra warmth. The day began at the stunning Rosewood Hotel Georgia where Ali and her girls got ready. Tasha from Polished was on hand to make them look extra glam but I suppose you could say Ali was already a step ahead in that area by having not just one, not just two, but three pairs of shoes for the occasion! I think more brides ought to follow suit ;)
Hotel Georgia is also where Scott and Ali shared their first look…a moment for just them, perfect and intimate. From there, we made a stop in Gastown for photos and once again I wondered why I don’t spend more time in the area with all of its character and shops beckoning. Best of all, Scott and Ali’s loved filled those streets and their smiles still didn’t waver even when, at Swaneset, we encountered some rain and later it became apparent that the bridal party bouquets had been left behind. The fact remained that they were still getting married. And that’s all that mattered, surrounded by their most loved ones, including many family members from Scott’s home of Australia.
Many thanks to the team at Wedding Design Studio for turning Ali’s dream of a winter wedding into a beautiful reality, and Teagan at Swaneset for making sure everything came together flawlessly. And to Scott and Ali, thank you so much for the joy of being your wedding photographer!
