Lisa and Pasqual's love story is full of family ties, so getting married at the family's farm in Pemberton was a no-brainer. The two met at a staff party for Two Rivers Meats. Lisa's family owns the company, where she works as a graphic designer and Pasq works as a butcher. Their outdoor wedding took place on her parent's property with the mountains as the backdrop.
It was a hot August day, so we took lots of opportunities to seek shade. They opted to do a first look (one of my favourite things to photograph) and met at the hay barn on the property. Pasqual and his groomsmen were already there waiting, when Lisa and her bridesmaids arrived on a tractor - in true farm fashion. I always love when my couples decide to do a first look. It's a good opportunity to ease any nerves before the ceremony and it gives the couple a chance to be together and have a quiet moment before the events of the day get underway.
After photos they made their way back to the house, where the ceremony was set up in the backyard. Lisa's mother was the officiant which made it extra special and there was no shortage of smiles and happy tears. After the ceremony the guests enjoyed cocktails on the lawn and a luxurious charcuterie board (biggest I'd ever seen) was set out. The food at this wedding deserved a special nod. Fairmount Whistler did an amazing job with the dinner and Pasq added his own special touch by cooking a roast from Two Rivers Meats just for the occasion.
After the delicious food and some heartfelt speeches, everyone made their way into the barn for the dance party. It continued until the wee hours of the morning....such is the benefit of being out on a farm where the neighbours can't complain about the noise. ;)
