Caleb & Koda - Wintery Chilliwack Wedding [Chilliwack Alliance Church]


I had two January weddings this year - yup, TWO! That's never happened to me before, but I'm so glad it did! I've always been one to keep myself busy, so not having a long and drawn out off season this year was pretty awesome! I was so honoured when Caleb & Koda asked me to shoot their wedding - Caleb is a Videographer/photographer himself, and he and Koda are basically the sweetest couple ever! While the pressure is high when you're shooting another creative's big day. it's also a good way to keep me on my toes ;) I had so much fun spending the day with these two and their families. They're all such kind, genuine people, I felt right at home spending the day with them! We started out with some getting ready & first look shots at the Wall's gorgeous home up in the Ryder Lake area! I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I've lived in Chilliwack my entire life, and have never been up there before! I kind of feel like I've been missing out - with all the snow topped mountains, it was absolutely STUNNING! But you don't have to take my word for it - we took advantage of the surroundings for all our bridal party photos, so you'll be able to see all the beauty for yourself below! ;) After photos, we headed down to Chilliwack for the ceremony and reception at the Alliance Church, and it was all so perfectly them. The ceremony was so heartwarming and personal, and the reception was equal parts cozy and beautiful! Check it all out below!
