Ikumi and Stephen were planning their wedding from a different province, in a mountain town (which just so happens to be where I first met my hubby), so the first time we met was on Skype! I’m not sure how much we talked about their upcoming celebration as much as hearing their story and finding out how much we had in common. Next, a coffee date at a local shop. I was steadily falling in love with their love.
Their day came, the clouds holding back the rain. The house full of love, busy finishing details, Ikumi was all grace and beauty, and the way Stephen looked at her melted me. Such an intimate and beautiful ceremony. And that driftwood arbour was fantastic!
Thank-you for climbing boulders, stopping randomly on the side of the road, and trusting me to capture part of your story.
