Genny and Dave Get Married at Craidelonna Lodge in Sooke // Vancouver Island Wedding Photographers
When we met Genny and Dave last year, we were excited at the idea of potentially shooting their wedding. They were sweet, genuine, outdoor-loving, and lived in one of our favourite places to visit in BC, Sooke. We also learned quickly that Genny and Dave loved fishing, and spending time out on the boat with their daughter, Hannah. What a better place for a couple of ocean folk to get married than at Craidelonna OceanEdge Lodge, perched right on the edge of a hillside, with panoramic views of the sea, and access to a beautiful ocean beach. We have always loved weddings at Craidelonna, and feel it's one of the very best wedding venues around Victoria, even on all of Vancouver Island.
When we arrived that day, many people were enjoying the views. All the men hung around in the crow's nest, overlooking the ocean, chatting, toasting the occasion with tequila, and of course, chiding Dave about how he had to spend a saturday on land. All the ladies spent time on the lower patio, catching up, drinking wine and admiring Genny's bridal dressing process. What a beautiful and radiant bride and mom, Genny is. With her beachy curls and sparkling gown, she could have been a mermaid.
From the intimate and seemingly isolated location, custom decor, speeches and toasts from friends and family, and service from the warm Craidelonna staff (family, really), Genny and Dave's wedding felt incredibly personal. Even their caterer, Toque Catering, incorporated Genny and Dave's own fresh caught crab and halibut into their delightful and creative dinner dishes.
Thank you so much, Genny and Dave for inviting us to meet your friends and family, and capture this special day! We hope you love the photos.
