Baby it's Cold Outside! Stella & Jon's Vancouver Winter Wedding

Brrrrr-it is cold out there!  I know, I shouldn't be complaining considering it's only -8C but for Vancouver standards, it's pretty darn chilly!  At least it's beautiful out there, reminding me that I forgot to post Stella & Jon's wedding from last winter!

yaletown_wedding_gallery_vancouver_winter_wedding_stella_jon_suttonplacehotel_photoI have known Stella for a very long time...we used to attend the same church and I watched her and her sister Janice grow up.  I had the priviledge of photographing Janice's wedding in Hong Kong a few years back and remembered Stella telling me that when she gets married she would definitely hire me as her photographer.  Well, she kept her word and that day came during a beautiful sunny winters day last February.

I knew Stella would be stunning to photograph and she did not dissapoint!  Doesn't she look gorgeous in her Lazaro gown from Bisou Bridal.

Many Vancouverites woud likely agree with this statement: Winter in Vancouver means a lot of rain.  Stella already knew that having a wedding in the dead of winter would likely mean rain so she had bright rain boots for her and her bridesmaids to prepare for the elements.  Little did we know it would be a beautiful sunny day in Vancouver that day!  We did wind up squeezing some photos of the boots for fun anyways:)
