Carmela and Michael | Vancouver Convention Centre | St. Helen’s Parish | Wedding

Looking back at an amazing wedding with the loveliest couple today. Carmela and Michael’s wedding day was truly a glorious one! We had the opportunity to work with some great industry pros who helped put this beautiful wedding day together. The day started off with some morning celebrations while the bridal team got ready, the ladies with Carmela and the gents with Michael. The Butter Weddings Team was out in full force covering all of the moments on each side. Shortly after, we were treated to a beautiful Catholic ceremony at St. Helen’s Parish in Burnaby. For part one of the wedding party photo shoot, we headed up to Simon Fraser University. Yup… SFU is a great spot for photos… from architecture to koi ponds, to lush gardens, we love the photo ops there. But of course, since their dinner reception was at the Vancouver Convention Centre, we made sure to reserve some time to grab a few shots of Carmela and Michael there too prior to their reception. Let’s talk a bit of the couple… the sweet couple… the handsome couple. Seriously these two are so cute together and they have the most gentle hearts and I can go on gushing about how amazing it was to work with them. We most definitely look back at this wedding with fondness and honestly reliving the moments. Yes… our work doesn’t only let our awesome couples relive their big day, it does the same for us too ;). Evviva gli sposi (long live the bride and groom)!

"They are right. Your wedding day goes by in a flash: so many details go fuzzy amidst the sensory overload-- all of your DIY handiwork and months of planning finished, in what feels like the shortest day of my life. Thank goodness for Butter Weddings who captured the moments of our wedding day that my eyes could not. They were the best. Showing up ahead of time, quickly staging flowers and arranging our bridal party and family. Finding the right moment to pull us away to capture the best light of the day. Effortlessly moving through all of our guests at a photo booth receiving line- best idea ever, by the way! No, seriously, I can't think of one thing that I would want them to do differently, except for find a magical time machine that would let us do it all over again! From our engagement shoot the month after Peter popped the question where Gina and Chris helped us stage an outdoor living room at the waters edge, to staging and preserving every little detail of our wedding day, they captured our memories like the pros that they are. I could not be happier with our pictures. Chris and Gina, thank you. I know you can't see my tears of joy right now as I write this, but they are there and they are real. You made me the happiest bride. xo"
