– Hope, BC –
After ten years and building their lives together, Kendra and Tarik decided to officially tie the knot in an intimate ceremony at the Othello Tunnels in Hope, BC. Their rich, beautiful history, and the two tiny people they call their own made this an extraordinary day. Kendra, the happy bride, requested a moody vibe, reminiscent of the Pacific Northwest, and that’s exactly what we got. It was a perfect Autumn day in September, and we had plenty of tall trees and sloping rocks covered with moss to make her vision come to life. Typically, the tunnels are filled with tourists, but we happened to have the place all to ourselves for their afternoon ceremony. Some of my favorite moments happened before the I Do’s. Kendra and her adorable little girl had some time together as they got ready in Whiterock, and it was so sweet to capture their bond and excitement.
Kendra looked absolutely stunning! Her unique and elegant dress featured a lacy top and detailed, sheer button back. With her curled hair softly pulled back, and her daughter’s bohemian french braid, they were truly a vision! After they were picture-perfect, they headed out to meet their boys, and as you can see from the “first look”, there were a few tears of joy. Their intimate ceremony was deeply personal, thanks to the amazing Shawn Miller of Young, Hip & Married officiating. After the ceremony, we spent some time taking portraits and exploring the rest of the area before they left to celebrate. Congratulations, Kendra and Tarik, and thank you for allowing me to capture this milestone for your family!
