This alternative rock and roll wedding at UBC Boathouse was done a little different from traditional weddings.
Getting ready at River Rock Casino
Both the bride and groom got ready at the River Rock Casino Hotel in Richmond, BC. They got ready with all of their closest friends and family in the morning. The bride got everyone in her wedding party white or black chalices for drinking cups, which I thought were awesome! Their outfits were amazing, with her wedding dress being glamorous and so different. He went a little western with his outfit and even got a custom hat made just for the event. The combination was perfect!
Britannia Shipyard Wedding Photos
They decided on the first look at Britannia Shipyards in Steveston. Our photos from that location from a past wedding were what caught her eye and gave her the idea of doing their photos at that spot, and ultimately hire us! We always love this location because it’s so rustic and has really nice lighting. It’s a great spot for rain or shine, and just an overall interesting location to use.
UBC Boathouse Wedding
Their ceremony at UBC Boathouse was after sunset, and guests were greeted with shots of Fireball. The wedding aisle was lined with candles and sparkly skulls, which was pretty awesome! When the ceremony began, they were walking down the aisle high-fiving their guests and just having fun the entire time. One of their close friends married them, and the ceremony was quick, fun and full of laughs!
Cocktail Wedding Reception
The reception was a cocktail style event, where people can just graze on canapés the entire night. They had a blackjack table set up in the middle of the room, couches and chairs throughout for people to lounge, and the game Stump (a competitive game where you have to hammer your nail into the stump first. It’s a fun, yet competitive game). It was such a relaxed party in the sense of no actual events, but a crazy party with a lot of great friends, Fireball shots, good music, laughing, drinking, singing and dancing!
It was such a sweet day, and working with these two was so amazing and fun! Thank you so much M+K for choosing us to photograph your wedding, it’s one we’ll always remember!
