Shelley & Mike

| Rosewood Hotel Georgia Wedding

The nuptials of Shelley and Mike were held at the beautiful and ultra classy Rosewood Hotel Georgia in Downtown Vancouver. I first “met” Shelley and Mike over a Skype call while they were on a trip in the Okanagan. Shelley and Mike live in Calgary, but decided to have their wedding in Vancouver. Luckily, Shelley’s parents live in West Vancouver so we had a chance to meet in person when Shelley and Mike were back for Thanksgiving last year.

Their wedding day started off nice and relaxing. Shelley had a lot of family fly in from Singapore so a few of her relatives were visiting at her parents’ home when I arrived. It’s always nice to walk into a home that’s full of chatter and excitement. I spent a moment getting acquainted with everyone, then was off to do my thing photographing the candids and details of the wedding day prep.

While I was in West Van with Shelley and the girls, Ryan was at Hotel Georgia with the guys. They started the day off with brunch and a few drinks at Reflections before getting dressed. Mike and Shelley agreed not to see each other before their ceremony so Ryan took the guys out for a few portraits when Shelley arrived at the hotel so she could hang out there before the ceremony started.

The ceremony took place in the Ballroom Promenade. Shelley and the Wedding Party made walked down the isle to the acoustic tune of K.C. and Jojo’s All My Life, brilliantly covered by Shelley’s cousin and Mike’s groomsman. It was a beautiful ceremony with lots a laughs and a few tears.

After the ceremony, I whisked the wedding party away for the portraits. We walked across the street to the Vancouver Art Gallery and Robson Square. The front courtyard of the VAG is currently under construction so we shot on the other side instead. After, we hopped over across Robson street to the law courts and finished off in the green area above the courts. I love the spot because it’s on top of a hill which overlooks the art gallery and has a nice view of the surrounding concrete jungle.

The wedding reception was held in the Spanish Ballroom of the Rosewood. The theme of blue and white carried through to the decor with white table cloths and blue dinner napkins. The centre piece of the reception had to be the cake and cupcakes though. The cakes were handcrafted by Shelley’s father. He created a 6 tiered cake adorned with handmade white sugar roses and intricate pipework.

The night featured heart warming speeches, ground and wall shaking Singaporean toasts and a impromptu singing performance by the groom and his boys. The dance floor was packed by the end of the night which goes to show just how fun loving this couple and their friends and family are.

Shelley and Mike, thank you again for having me photograph your big day. It was truly and honour and I wish you two the best!
