I love Tofino.
I had never actually been, despite growing up in a ferry town my whole life! So when Carolyn and I had discussed her and Cooper's upcoming wedding in Tofino, I was SO excited - and for good reason! What a whimsical and romantic place for a wedding ceremony.
The setting was magnificent - Long Beach Lodge, sunshine and the sound of waves and wind. The truth of the matter is that Carolyn and Cooper are the type of people that could make a back alley look beautiful, but they just happened to find a location as striking as they are.
In order to calm nerves and have a more intimate setting, Carolyn and Cooper decided to do a first look in the wooded area in front of their parents cabins at the Lodge.
What a beautiful moment to be a part of.
After a beautiful (albeit, windy) ceremony, we all headed into the Lodge for a champagne toast. Everyone was windblown, slightly sandy and extremely happy!
I snuck the wedding party out between champagne and dinner in order to snap a few shots out on the beach - they were all such troopers! Carolyn and Jackie were game for anything, despite their full length dresses and windblown hair - and, of course, Cooper and Brett were perfect gentlemen, escorting the ladies over the rocks and tidal pools! It was almost like an adventure session... haha. I should also mention that Matt (my husbandito!) was along for the trip to Tofino and assisted throughout the day (so I ALSO was assisted over the rocks and water!)
Mr & Mrs Watts - I am SO thrilled for you! Thank you for letting Matt and I share in your special day. We had a lovely time and I can't wait to share about your Tsawwassen reception :)
May your marriage be defined by love and laughter.
