Kendra & Andreas’ Wedding Part 1

September 30, 2009

Kendra & Andreas had a gorgeous little ceremony at a family cottage near Tofino with just a handful of family & friends. It was such an honor to be a part of their day, and quite the adventure to get there! Our destination was forty minutes down a rough gravel road…and it worth every effort to arrive at the little oasis at the end. The moss covered trees and a lakeside view just took my breath away.

In the middle of their ceremony (conducted by local legend Hitchhike Mike) Kendra & Andreas decided to flip a coin to see who’s last name they would take! As soon as the ceremony was finished and everyone had recovered from the excitement, we all had to dash to the house to escape an incredible down pour. It was actually really fun all huddling together and listening to the rain. It eased up enough for me to take Kendra & Andreas into the woods for a handful of portraits before returning to the house for a cozy, candle-lit dinner. What a day!
