Jen & Adey’s Lighthouse Park Wedding
When we first met Jen and Adey, we were immediately drawn to them and their relaxed energy around each other. Having been together for more than 14 years, you could tell their love was strong and tested, and the idea of getting married was something that was completely natural for them. As they told us of their wedding idea, it was unique, lovely and completely suited to them. Being active sailors, they have traveled extensively and have documented their adventures photographing each other at lighthouses all around the world. Wanting an intimate ceremony, free from outside distractions and simply about their love, planning a Lighthouse Park wedding was the perfect way to celebrate.
For their big day, they asked us, their commissioner and two close friends to join them for a quiet ceremony by the ocean. As we trekked down the path leading to the lighthouse, you could see the energy between them building. First calm but with quiet excitement … but as we reached the lookout where they would say their vows, they were full of nerves and giddiness. It was amazing to see, that even after almost a decade and a half, when you are with your perfect match, the sacred vows of becoming husband and wife always reveal beautiful waves of excitement, deep emotions and incredible love.
The Vancouver coast didn’t disappoint in its glory for their wedding. The weather was cool, the rain was gentle and the skies were overcast – providing soft light that was absolutely a dream to photograph in.
Their commissioner wrote for them a beautiful ceremony, drawing on links between the ocean’s strength and that of marriage. Of calmness and angry seas… to stay strong in the storms and appreciate the kinder waters. As the ceremony progressed, a sailboat glided by and three eagles flew overhead, marking the occasion perfectly. Then, as they were announced as husband and wife and had their first kiss, mother nature gave her blessing from the treetops, as the eagles let out a glorious cry in celebration.
Jen & Adey’s Lighthouse Park Wedding was one of the most naturally beautiful and adventurous wedding we have ever experienced. We thank them for letting us be a part of their special day and wish them a marriage full of love, laughter and adventure.
