They got ready together in their apartment full of plants and mid-century furniture marvels. They were married with the sunlight softened between Queen Elizabeth's trees. They made feathered friends in the tropical glory of the Bloedel Conservatory. All they wanted was to throw a great party and serve people nice food and they did this in spades.
Darcy & RJ's wedding at the Bloedel Conservatory was a dream within a dream. To be confident in your own skin, sense of humour, and elevated personal tastes and then to share these things with the most important humans in your lives. What else does a wedding need to be? I've been able to work with so many couples who I could describe in this way (Rachelle & Caleb and Marissa & Lebron come to mind immediately). But what makes wedding photography especially great is being able to witness all of the unique quirks of each. All they wanted was to throw a great party and serve people nice food and they did this in spades while being toasted and celebrated at QE Park, the Bloedel Conservatory, and Loungeworks amongst family and brilliant friends. They asked me to capture the mood and feeling of the day as best as I could, to hopefully help them remember their wedding as a warm, happy, thick, loving memory. Here's how it all goes down when a keen sense of place and proof of the real stuff that binds two beautiful humans is let loose. Here's how it felt, with some gifs thrown in for good measure.
Thank you, Darcy & RJ, for embracing me as a friend and sharing what you wanted for all of your guests: a damn good time.
