Melissa & John { Wedding }

Melissa & John tied the knot last Saturday, Aug 20th, in beautiful Parksville, BC. The afternoon wedding was short and sweet and filled with lot's of love, friends and family.We arrived in Parksville at 9am after driving up from Victoria, BC.  I got to go meet the boys before the wedding while they were getting ready, and had the chance to see the hilarious sense of humour John and his friends have. John, a seemingly quiet guy, turned out to be full of surprises.

After making it to the Bayside Inn, Parksville, where the ceremony was held, the boys shared some pre-vow champagne in the parking lot and had some bonding time in the hotel room (see below). Both the groomsmen and bridesmaids looked clean and polished and the day went on without a glitch. The reception was held at the Qualicum Community Hall, and was beautifully decorated with a unique guestbook where the guests filled out mini cards and hung them on some arranged branches (great idea!), and I loved the seating arrangement display...the names of the guests were written on a window mirror with each table having its own checker in the frame. The 2 MC's of the night kept the night filled with laughter with their mini skits and comedy routines and after just short of 12 hours of shooting, the night ended and I headed home....exhausted! Here are a few shots of the day:
