Chris & Shannon – A Kamloops Wedding

_EDS3256

Our lives are made up of a series of moments. Moments that are fleeting. Moments that are lasting. Moments that leave indelible marks on our hearts. Moments that lift us up and shape who we become. One of my life moments was going to Camp Goodtimes. It was there that I met Chris 17 years ago and we became friends. And on a beautiful day in June, I had the immense pleasure of watching him marry Shannon, the love of his life. A union that made me smile and reminded me why I love what I do. Here’s a little peek at their day.

I quickly learned that Chris and Shannon love to surprise each other. Chris bought this beautiful bracelet for Shannon and had a groomsman deliver it just before the wedding ceremony. It was a matching piece to the earrings and necklace he’d given her for Christmas and her birthday. Isn’t it gorgeous?

I’ve always been struck by an absurdity of wedding days… while the ladies spend time getting their hair and make up done…

The boys get to go golfing…

And then the girls still have to get dressed!! (I guess the boys do too, but it takes them WAY less time!)

There is, however, always a moment for a selfie, especially with the person responsible for introducing you to your future husband!

Chris and Shannon had lots of special details in their day… this was the bear for the ring bearer to carry down the aisle… with the rings securely attached!

I love how focused Shannon is on Chris as she walks down the aisle!

And then it was Shannon’s turn to surprise Chris. Without him knowing, she found this beautiful car to take them from the ceremony to the reception!

I think you can safely say, Chris was pleased!!

And so were we, because it was a great backdrop!

Shannon’s adorable niece and nephew, who did an amazing job as ring bearer and flower girl.

Just before we left, we took Chris and Shannon outside for a few more photographs… These two were my favourites…

Chris and Shannon. Where do I even start? Thank you. Thank you for trusting us. Thank you for sharing your day with us. Thank you for being so easy going and fun to work with.
