Kirstie and Zach could literally not wipe the smiles off their faces all day as they became husband and wife mid-June of this 2021 year. Planning a covid-19 pandemic was not easy, but they pulled it off so beautifully, and I was slo glad tey were able to celebrate their union with so many of their closest family and friends.
I arrived at Kirstie’s family home to the sounds of laughter coming from the bridal room upstairs as the ladies were getting ready. Zach was set to go for the first look, and so had a few moments to collect his thoughts while his bride put on the final touches. The first look was as special as we imagined it would be…. Zach may have teared up a bit, and I’m sure Kirstie did as well. This was a moment long in the making, this wedding, and it was finally happening!
The ceremony was held at the nicely manicured Port Royal Park, smack in the middle of the field, with the ceremony being lit by the sun peaking through the clouds. Andrew Lukianiuk Photography also had our livestream team there to capture and share this special moment with family and friends watching online, and the ceremony included lots of laughter and smiles as Kirstie and Zach became one after sharing their vows.
After some family and wedding party portraits, I took the couple down the street as we got a few portraits of just the two of them. After all, we needed a few photos of the newlyweds before they headed off to their reception.
Held at the Fortune City Seafood Restaurant in Vancouver, everyone enjoyed a sit-down traditional multi-course meal while sprinkled throughout the evening were speeches from some in the wedding party, a beautiful tea ceremony for a few special dignitaries and of course, the classic shoe game. All in all, it was truly an awesome day to celebrate the beginning of this new marriage!
Kirstie and Zach, thank you for having me there to capture this special moment in your lives. It was truly an honour. I am beyond excited to share these images with you and your family! – Andrew
