Vancouver Aquarium Wedding ~ Shawn + Michelle

My good friends Shawn and Michelle got married at the Aquarium! They had a pre-wedding session, a trash my dress session and then a civil ceremony. On the big party day, we start with the girls getting ready in the morning.

This remain the most impressive bridesmaids speech as the girls actually sang out the whole speech in the tune of Love Story.

Getting down to some games, and we see someone familiar! Shawn was blindfolded and will need to pick out Michelle among a group of lovely ladies.

It was my pleasure to photograph their wedding (on top of the ultra cool Venue at Vancouver Aquarium and Hycroft Manor) I had known Shawn since we were at college and to be honest, I was a little choke up after seeing him change into his tux (which he gave me the WTF expression…and it was priceless). It was overwhelming, loving with lots of laugh and the night was ended with lots of hugs and dancing.
