Terri and Pete had the summer in the fall. Even though it was October and we were prepared for our usual soggy weather that we have here on the South Coast. They chose the unique Eagle Manor Estates in Pitt meadows for the number of picture perfect indoor and covered opportunities. Terri got ready in the Bridal suite which look like it was plucked from the castle in Beauty and the Beast.
There was plenty of space for the girls to get ready, hang out and just enjoy the morning. Terri's mom watched her daughter get ready with love and pride in her eyes. Meanwhile Pete got ready with the boys over in another building on site after a morning round of golf. Other than a little smoke from a forrest fire that was across the river, the sky was clear with not a cloud in sight.
The ceremony started and the girls gracefully walked down the aisle, the boys rocked down and Pete truly was the star of the show. Over the bridge and through the willow tree Terri walked down her own aisle escorted by her nephew. Their commissioner shared their love story under the arch decorated with sun catching crystals which sparkled in the sunlight. After they said their I do's, signed the dotted line and sealed it all with a kiss we headed into family and wedding party photos. With the sun we didn't need to hide indoors but we still wanted to take advantage of the uniqueness of the venue. Well before the wedding we already knew the bathtub was a necessity for photos. Terri brought her boots for these photos and it was giving me pretty women vibes and not in a hooker type way haha!
The reception space was decorated beautifully. Their love of golf was hinted on their personalized cupcake toppers. The MC kept the party laughing all evening long followed by speeches that were a good balance of laughs and love. Pete shocked everyone with his beautiful speech to his bride. The smoke from the fire drifted over and gave us the most magical golden hour which we took advantage of just after the speeches while they turned the dining room into a dance party space. When we returned Terri and Pete had their first dance and led into the rest of the evening. Wailin' Dale Entertainment had the dance floor filled all night long with my favourite music list I've heard at a wedding so far.
