Today we're thrilled to share with you the highlights from Sarah and Riley's wedding video. All of the locations were stunning. The Fairmont Pacific Rim where the ladies' spent the morning. Riley's parents' home in West Vancouver where the gentlemen met up. The picturesque backdrop from sea to sky atop Grouse Mountain for the ceremony. And the reception at The Vancouver Club which...well, simply defines elegance.
In addition to these beautiful settings, we were surrounded by wonderful people: Sarah and Riley, their wedding party, and their families.
Sarah and Riley are both medical professionals who are incredibly fit (who does the Grouse Grind the day before their wedding? And gets their wedding party to do it with them?). Riley, who's had family members affected by Prostate Cancer, has run across Canada — yes that's right, the entire country — to raise funds for Prostate Cancer research and increase awareness (please take a moment to check out Step Into Action to learn more about Riley's incredible journey and how you can help).
Their wedding day was special because of all of these things and one more in particular: Sarah and Riley, and their family and friends, are simply great people. Great human beings. And those are the kind of people that are truly amazing to work with and to be around.
Sarah and Riley not only adore one another, they love life. And they're surrounded by wonderful, loving friends and family. You can see it in their eyes. And you can feel it when they speak to you. And that alone is contagious and energizes everyone around them.
We were privileged to also work with an amazing team that day. Geneve McNally and her team from DreamGroup Productions who seems to simply attract 'dream' couples. Camille & Chadwick Bensler of Jonetsu Photography who we can't help but admire and whose client-first philosophy parallels our own. Melanie Tremblay from Mink Makeup and Hair who is the definition of a true professional. Andrew Cooper of Grouse Mountain who was incredibly helpful with our pre-production planning. And Jenny De Jong of The Vancouver Club who is so good at what she does, you just naturally expect excellence.
We hope you enjoy this short film from Sarah and Riley's wedding atop Grouse Mountain and at The Vancouver Club, and we encourage you to leave a comment below.
