Tara & Dave Love Story Slideshow

Tara and Dave chose Tara’s childhood home for their wedding, full of romantic spaces and amazing scenery including a hand made log home and lilacs full of Monarch butterflies. More striking than all this; Tara’s radiance and Dave’s smile as they shared their love for each other and celebrated with family and friends. The joy of the day spilled over into the formals, where ┬áthe wedding party enjoyed mixing traditional poses with superhero and action themed ideas.

Here is the story of their wedding and formals.

Tara and Dave, Part II

One of the most magical moments ever happened while photographing this wedding; while we were wandering about Tara’s family home above the Peace River near Fort St. John, we stopped by a lilac tree, where dozen’t of butterflies hung about. Tara was just about able to reach out and pet them. Of course, I wasn’t able to get that exact shot, but I did get a few of her and the butterflies.

Tara and Dave, Part 1

You couldn’t ask for a nicer day for a wedding than this day. You couldn’t ask for a nicer location, either, than the family home, a hand-build log house rising above the Peace River near Fort St. John. Colette joined me as second photographer for this awesome wedding.

The groom and his best man were about the biggest comic nerds that you ever did see. I mentioned one of my favourite series from back in the day was Marvel’s Excalibur, and that was it. The rest of the day was dominated by talk of which of the mutants was most awesome (if you don’t do comics, you wouldn’t care, but I loved listening in to those two banter back and forth…)

Oh, and the bride was lovely, too.
