This wedding was a DIY wedding in the outskirts of Vancouver located in Agassiz B.C. The location was actually scoped out by the bride and groom, and I was absolutely stunned by the venue. It is actually not a regular wedding venue, but after the bride and groom convinced the owners to have a wedding there, I think that it is definitely a spot that future clients should look into. It is in a very quiet area and just surrounded by mountains. The theme was vintage, and the flowers were all handpicked out of the brides friends yards, and it was so nice to see it all come together so nicely. It was definitely photographer heaven shooting this wedding, it kind of reminded me of something right out of the Notebook!!! I was really happy to see how much effort that Jessie & David put into there wedding, and the details fit the bride and groom so perfectly and it suited there personalities very well. Her simple vintage lace dress was gorgeous. I also loved how each bridesmaids dress was different! Definitely one of my favourites.
