Ashley and Shawn were married out at the beautiful Quaaout Lodge and Talking Rock Resort in Chase, BC. The Quaaout is an amazing piece of property, and a popular BC wedding venue. These two are both fire fighters, and they met while fighting the same fire. The rest, as they say, is history 🙂 Our summer was a hot and dry one and they were super busy putting out our many fires. Ironically, the first heavy rains of the summer happened on their wedding weekend. Right?? It rained all morning, stopping only just before the ceremony was set to start. It was amazing, and as an added bonus the rains washed away the smoky skies, revealing the views across Shuswap Lake. Pretty cool!
Ashley and Shawn are simply beautiful together. I love that you can see their quiet love even in their photos. This is one of the reasons I don’t overly pose my couples…. it gives them a chance to be natural together and that’s when the magic happens!
Ashley had my favorite pink lilies in her bouquet, and along with white roses they made quite a statement! She looked stunning in her lace overlay dress…. so beautiful!
The guys in the wedding party were up to their antics all day… I’ve included just a couple so you can see the shenanigans I had to put up with all day 🙂 You’ll know them when you see them… oh gosh…
The reception room was decorated simply and beautifully in blue and white, with natural accents of aspen candles and pussy willows. Such a gorgeous day, and thanks so much for having me document your love and your vows, you two!!!! <3
Siblings! This is a classic “look” that these three pull off together, and I laugh every time I look at this photo. See? Shenanigans!
