It’s widely known that we’re huge fans of the Rockwater Secret Cove Resort, so we’re thrilled to be featuring Nathan and Emily’s wedding today. Not only did it take place at one of our favorite venues—with bald eagles swooping overhead—it was shot by one of our very favorite Vancouver photographer duos, Sabrina and Dallas from Dallas Kolotylo Photography. And did we mention it’s totally gorgeous? No? Well, don’t take our word for it, scroll on and see for yourself.
Don’t you love the rich detailing of Nathan and Emily’s wedding? We were swept up by the peacock feathers, intricate beading on the gorgeous gown, and touches of teal that popped up everywhere from attire (those shoes!) to the cake. We’ll leave you with some thoughts from Emily on the big day:
I always thought I knew exactly what the wedding day would be like, but it was so much more.
I started the day by spending the morning with my parents, then it was on to hair and make-up. I’d never felt so excited, I was even ready early and wanted to get the show on the road, but was told to be patient and that guests were still arriving. Then, it was time. I took my dad’s arm and we made our way down to my future husband. As we sat and listened to our wedding talk I couldn’t stop smiling. I didn’t even notice the two eagles soaring above our heads that guests later told us about.
Everyone always told me that the day would go by so fast, I was told to remember to eat, remember to breathe and remember to, well, remember. So when I think about our wedding day, I’m always smiling when I think of the many warm embraces from our family and close friends, the goofy pictures from our photobooth, and the touching speeches, but mostly what I think of is when Nathan said I do and my smile was reflected by his.
