i am so happy to share some of the photos from kari-jean & henry’s wedding.
summer of 2017, on galiano island.
get ready for some of the natural west coast splendor –
and the joy of genuine love and what it inspires.
well, let’s just start here…. making decorations for the cake….with a hint of wes anderson. a great start!
all the ladies getting ready to make the bouquets wedding day morning.
the fellas doing their get ready thing.
well, yes, they look pretty fine.
take note – the very beginning of a theme…..
glimpse of the setting – from the galiano oceanfront inn & spa – with bc ferry going by…..
and check out those bouquets! great job, ladies!
start of the photos from the family place.
helping with the buttons.
kari-jean and her mother.
final details – here we go!
dreamy palette – again making me think of wes anderson.
those last few minutes before the ceremony. dab don’t smudge:)
all the ladies.
some of the graces.
father and kari-jean walking together.
just a little joy.
and a little more joy.
much evidence of love.
the bearable lightness of being.
closer to closer.
(to be honest – there were so many photos of smiles during this wedding i had a difficult time editing. tough job.)
ok. i guess it is official now! witnessed by friends, family, and the ocean.
a dose of sweetness.
and the next step – island style…..
sneaking in an extra kiss.
towards the sea.
helping the dress.
family and friends.
and this is how you get island street cred…..
wedding day kisses have extra magical powers.
friends + family = celebration.
the first of many sweet photos of cute guests.
yes, see what i mean about the flowers – the ladies managed a waterfall bouquet from a youtube video.
just one of the many family portraits at the pink house.
well, i couldn’t resist this one, as i too have a brother.
the bridal party.
returning to the galiano inn with their 2 new sets of gorgeous paddles.

pretty light at the gardens of the galiano inn.
lovely guests (including bridesmaid:) #2.
lovely guests #3
lovely guests #4
lovely guests #5
this is an easy game – lovely guests #6
yes, this meant something serious.
and getting ready for the beautiful dinner….
table seats and the masters of ceremony.
the theme of lovely guests continues…..
instead of clinking the glasses people had to write a haiku or sing a song for kisses. the results……
one from my tribe (but now i think i might need a bow tie.)
yes, ok, more lovely guests. family and friends.
haiku for a kiss.
prize for super smile & eye/tie coordination.
adding to the family tree.
points for that glance.
song for a kiss (wish i had a video to add here).
nuances of the night scene, galiano oceanfront inn.
and just when you think it couldn’t be greater – cake.
pulling out the moves.
poetic moment. proud papa.
loving to move.
one more kiss.
and let’s end it here. look! someone bust out with the worm!
well, this is just a glimpse of a wedding i was so honored to attend.
