Mr & Mrs Life!

On Saturday, I ventured out to Qualicum Beach.  I’d never been to that part of the island before.  It’s very beautiful over there.  I had some time before the girls arrive into the town to get their makeup done so I spent it exploring.  I went into a few antique shops and had something to eat at the town deli.  Everyone was so friendly!

I’ve known Christie for a number of years.  My mom used to work with her and her mom.  And I think at some point I worked with her too.  (this was around 15 years ago!) I hadn’t spoken to Christie since then, but when she started planning her wedding and she contacted me about doing her photos I was SO excited 🙂  It was so awesome to be able to catch up and see her marry her best friend.

We started off in this beautiful little town, where her and her sisters and mother and step mother got their makeup done

And her niece came to see how everyone was coming along!

Then off to Christie’s Dad’s… look who we found there!

These ties are so beautiful!

Christie’s dress is absolutely gorgeous!

So proud of their daughter!

And onto the ceremony.  Their vows were so beautiful!

There was lots of emotion on this fabulous day!

After all the formalities… the dance floor was opened 🙂  First Dance, Father/Daughter Dance and Mother/Son Dance kicked off the fun!

This little one… was the life of the party!

Thank you so much for asking me to be a part of your very special day Mike and Christie.  I wish you both a very long lifetime of happiness together!
