This love story is a special one, as the main characters are two of my best friends. Kate, the beautiful bride, was the very first friend I made when I moved out west. Anyone that knows her can testify to her generous warmth and quick wit. When she met Nic, a kind hearted and talented artist, it was clearly a match made in heaven. These two share a passion for the arts, take pleasure in a quality bottle of gin, and revel in lazy Sunday's filled with coffee and books. Oh, and they know how to throw a proper party, too!
Their union was on a sunny day in September, on a beautiful property on Vancouver Island just outside of Victoria. Half of the guests had made the trip over from the UK and it took no time for the camaraderie with the Canadians to unfold.
One of my favourite things about this intimate backyard wedding was how all of the festivities took place in one location. The ceremony was on the lawn, the dinner on the open deck, and the dancing in the living room. Friends popped up tents in the lower yard, and the day buzzed by with smiles, laughter and plenty of cocktails.
Having watched this love story unfold from the beginning, it was a real honour to get to document their wedding.
