isn't it romantic?

Sonya and John chose the most romantic day of the year for their wedding... Valentine's Day!  I had been looking forward to it since I first met them last Fall. Sonya's plans for the wedding were very special and I knew it was going to be gorgeous.  After photographing their engagement shoot, I realized how much these two adore each other... which of course, made photographing their wedding a dream. Sonya's amazing taste was evident in all the details of the day...

would you look at those eyes?  what a stunning bride.

and the groom wasn't bad looking either...

the ceremony at St. Helen's Church in Burnaby was absolutely beautiful...

the happy couple!  I just love the genuine joy of those first few moments of being husband and wife...

I mean, seriously.  are these two gorgeous people in love, or what?

and of course, they had the coolest bridal party!

the reception was held at a ballroom in one of the newer venues in Vancouver, the Delta Grand Villa Hotel.  Kudos to the management and incredible staff for providing amazing service and delicious food for the room full of 500 guests!  I look forward to doing more weddings in their hotel.  The spectacular florals and decor were provided by the incomparable Sandy of Art of the Party who never fails to deliver her magical touch. 

Congratulations, Sonya and John!  I hope your wedding was everything you dreamed it would be and more.  Can't wait to hear all about the epic honeymoon!
