Meet Dave and Linda from Sweden!
Before we get into the details of their wedding, I’m going to answer the burning question in everyone’s minds… yes, there were Swedish Meatballs. And yes, they were delicious.
I met Dave and Linda in person a week before their wedding. We’d been corresponding back and forth through email for a little bit less than a year as they were planning their wedding here in Vancouver from their home in Stockholm, Sweden. We met up for beers and burgers at the Tap and Barrel in the Olympic Village and immediately hit it off. I learned that Dave had grown up in Vancouver before moving to Sweden where he met Linda and fell in love.
Dave and Linda’s wedding took place in July in the middle of a heat wave. They had a beautiful intimate ceremony at Ferguson Point at the top of Stanley Park surrounded by their closest friends and family whom had travelled to Vancouver from near and afar. The spot where they’d tie the knot was marked by a DIY altar made of drift wood from the Fraser River – it was the most unique and wonderful thing I’d ever seen!
Following the ceremony, we took a stroll down to the beach where we returned the altar from whence it came. The tide was all the way out, which allowed us to walk onto the rocky beach for some amazing portraits. After the beach, we headed to the forest for a change of scenery and shelter from the sweltering heat. Before long, we found ourselves back at where we’d met for the first time in the Olympic Village. We finished our portrait session in this iconic little neighbourhood before heading to a fun filled reception at the Creekside Community Centre.
Dave and Linda, it was such a pleasure to photograph your wedding and I wish the two of you all the best in the years to come!
