The rain definitely did not damper Alan & Amber's day.
We started off with Amber and her ladies getting ready at the Grand Villa Hotel in Burnaby, and man was it ever a gorgeous room! But of course the bride stole the true beauty of the room, I loved her champagne based dress paired with a long, flowing black style for the bridesmaids. Alan was just a quick drive a way at their apartment in Vancouver getting ready with his groomsmen. The getting ready photos - of the both guys and gals - are always some of my favourites. I think its just anticipation of it all! Mimosas often help calm those nervous though ;)
This was a first for me where a groom required makeup because of a bachelor party incident. This one involving Alan, a dress, and a curb. Boys! lets do these things well in advance of the big day lol Way to stress us ladies out! Everything worked out fantastic though and was just another part to making this day memorable, right!? The fact that Alan, his family and many of his friends are from Ireland was memorable for me. Loved hearing all the accents!
We arrived at the Westwood Plateau (with the rings thankfully) and did the ceremony, photos and reception all in beautiful venue. There really was no need to leave and the rain even let up for us to hop on a golf cart and take some outdoor photos.
It was seriously so much fun getting to know these two!
