If you want to see an elegant wedding in a downtown Vancouver heritage building, V+J’s The Permanent Wedding Vancouver is a must see!
Getting ready at the Shangri-la and The Permanent
The girls got ready at the Shangri-la in downtown Vancouver. They had some awesome city views during this sunny, winter Vancouver day. One of the highlights was the emotional first looks from some of the brides closest family members. The guys got ready at The Permanent in the upstairs loft, where there were some sweet moments between father and son.
Traditional first look during the wedding ceremony at the Permanent
The couple wanted to see each other for the first time down the aisle during the wedding ceremony. The Permanent is a great indoor ceremony venue with tall ceilings, interesting roof details and backdrop of the vault. We loved using our lighting for the photos during the ceremony to keep the intimate feeling of the wedding ceremony.
Winter portraits around Gastown and the city
The Permanent is located pretty central to some great city photo locations. We walked right from The Permanent and used some interesting buildings to complement the elegant luxury wedding style V+J had with their wedding. The portraits started after sunset which is where our dramatic style really shines. We love photographing in any lighting conditions. The more challenging the better!
Elegant heritage building wedding reception
The Permanent has some outstanding architectural features. The bank vault was directly behind the head table which made for a great background. The ceiling has a spectacular ornamental stained glass skylight over most of the venue space. V+J and their guests were beaming happiness throughout the reception.
This was wedding one of two for V+J! They really wanted to capture the beauty that the city of Vancouver offers, as it is their home. They are having a second wedding in Mexico where they will be tying the knot in front of most of his family! Thanks so much V+J for having us capture your Vancouver wedding at the Permanent!
