{candle lit first dance} Perfection!

Friday, November 9, 2012

what a great way to end a perfect day....Mrs Shannon had this amazing idea to light over 200 candles for their first dance...outdoors under the twinkling of the stars. It turned out "perfect"!
Perfect is how I would describe the day.
thanks again Shannon and Marco...to a lifetime of great adventures together. I can't wait to capture more events in your life together. xo tam

this sweet girl was an amazing flower girl...she thought Shannon was a beautiful princess!

Marco and Shannon are truly blessed with some great friends...

an amazing location for a wedding...Predator Ridge. Located between Vernon and Kelowna. A great destination wedding. Guests can stay onsite. The staff did a great job on all the details.
Love their ceremony...check out the rounded chairs to ceremony. It was an exceptionally hot day for september in the Okanagan. with temps to +30 degrees. Poor Marco was right in the sun the whole time~
Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Mazereeuw

back in the day of pre-arrange marriages. when a marriage was a business deal between families...brides and grooms were never allowed to see each other before the wedding. Nowadays, that superstition is being kicked to the curb. In my photo world we call this "The First Look"
I LOVE that Marco and Shannon chose to take some time for themselves and have this intimate moment before the ceremony. Shannon brought a lovely gift of custom cufflinks with Marco grandmothers photos in them!~Ahhh! told you she was sweet.
can you feel the love yet? such a great couple...I love my job!
