Danny & Chelsi | Stuart Lake, BC
I had the absolute honor of photographing my big brothers wedding a few weeks ago. It was so special for me to spend the morning with my gorgeous sister-in-law and then head to my brother’s cabin to help him prep for his “first look.” I held back tears as I helped to roll up his sleeves; something so simple, but so meaningful to me.
Danny was so nervous for the first time that I saw Chelsi. I left him crying and taking deep breaths to try and calm himself while I went to “help Chelsi out of the truck.” He turned around with his eyes closed and took a deep breath in preparation. He opened his eyes to see his bride, only she was not there. Standing in her place was his good friend Mike, in a wedding dress and veil. It was the definition of hilarious! Although the first thing out of Danny’s mouth was “you ass holes.” I swear the wedding was almost called off in that moment!
The backdrop for the ceremony was amazing. Stuart Lake was in the background as Danny finally got to see his bride for the first time. Chelsi was a vision. Her smile was one of the largest smiles that I have ever seen on a woman about to marry her best friend.
I cried so much during the entire thing. Their vows were beautiful and the love between them was felt by everyone in the crowd.
Afterwards we took off on an epic boat ride to one of the many islands nearby for photos where we had so many laughs and created many new memories! I cannot wait for you all to see the images that we got!

Congratulations you two. I am so happy to say that Chelsi is now officially my sister-in-law; although I have been calling her that for years! I love you two so much and it meant the world to me that I got to spend a large portion of the day with you!
