I have been so excited to share this Richmond wedding! Kirsten is a friend of mine from high school and I was honoured that her and Adam chose me to photograph their wedding!
Kirsten and Adam met on a blind date at Starbucks about 4 years ago and have basically been together ever since! To read more about their story and Adam’s super cute proposal, check out their engagement session. Their ceremony was held at the church they attend; Richmond Alliance Church and I was seriously a sniffling mess, I cried way more than I thought I would (I come to expect that I will cry now at almost all weddings haha). Kirsten and Adam’s vows to each other were so heartfelt and beautiful. There was a lot of emotions throughout the entire day and you will see them in the photos. I included a lot of photos…this may be my longest post yet. I just really wanted readers to feel the same emotions that were felt during the day and I hope I achieved that!
We went to London Heritage Farms for the portraits and continued the reception at Sunrise Golf Course in Surrey. A few words from Kirsten: “The theme was a rustic/romantic one and so my colour was maroon and we added little touches of romance in the decor with lace painted mason jars, maroon floral arrangements, and we used different words that represent love and marriage to mark tables instead of table numbers. The rustic came in with the white box vases that Adam made for the center pieces from an old wooden fence, picture frames for the table “words” (instead of numbers) that Adam made from the same fence, the old barn windows that held our seating charts, and the hay bales decorating the entrance. The boys boutonnieres were maroon calla lilies (there were also calla lilies in the bouquets) in honour of my grandmother who I was very close to. That was the only flower that was an absolute must have! Something cute, I guess, is that for my “something blue” I had Adam’s Uncle, who made our rings, take the blue aquamarine stone out of my purity ring and insert it on the inside of Adam’s wedding band as a surprise. I had his ring attached to my bouquet as I walked down the aisle.” Their wedding was such a beautiful day, I hope you enjoy the photos!

Such a beautiful bride! As a surprise for Adam, Kirsten had an aquamarine stone from her purity ring put into Adam’s wedding band! So sweet.
Loved Kirsten’s dress! It was perfect.
Kirsten’s dad seeing her for the first time on her wedding day:
The wedding truck had some nice bumper decoration 😛
For the guest book everyone was photographed with a polaroid camera, then all the photos were later put together in an album with nice messages for the happy couple.

Married! Now off for my favourite part of the day; the portraits!
Maroon has been Kirsten’s favourite colour from as long as I can remember.
Yup – we did this photo.
The lovely ladies!
Serious GQ models here.
Such a gorgeous couple!
Polariod guest book.
Gotta love the shoe game. I never get tired of it!
This next question was; who’s feet smell worse?
Adam had a few words to say to his beautiful bride.
So much emotion! I just love it, I get a bit teary eyed looking through these again. Congratulations you two lovebirds!! <3
