Irm, Kirsten's mom contacted me several months ago in regards to photographing her daughters wedding. When I met Nate and Kirsten for the first time I knew their wedding would be something special. They are both calm, goofy and definitely in love. The guys got ready at a friends house in Abbotsford and the girls (and the butler!) got ready at Kirsten's parents house, as well as the bridal suite at their ceremony and reception venue, The Secret Garden. The day prior to the wedding was an eventful one, with one of BC's largest storms since 2008! Millions had no power, winds were gusting and that is a big challenge on your wedding day! Regardless, we were not concerned at all because the day was all about celebrating Nate and Kirsten and being surrounded by all their loved ones and we actually lucked out with some fantastic weather following the storm. It was an intimate wedding with approximately 50 guests (including the bridal party!). Nate and Kirsten's friends are the type of friends everyone needs. They are so supportive of Nate and Kirsten and have equally goofy personalities. The decor was absolutely stunning and so fitting to Nate and Kirstens personalities. Take a look at some sneak peaks from the first part of the day....stay tuned for part 2!
