Paul & Dakota marry on Pride Weekend!

August, I had the pleasure to capture “The Wedding of the Year” for Paul and Dakota, who were lucky enough to win their Wedding on behalf of The Peak radio station #pridewedding competition. The scene for their ceremony and reception couldn’t have been anything more beautiful. Set on the grounds of Science world overlooking the water and the city skyline. I knew that this wedding was going to be amazing with many incredible vendors and entertainers coming together to create the dream wedding for these two Grooms but what I saw when I arrived far exceeded my expectations. Erin from Filosophi events really went above and beyond to coordinate the day. Upon meeting Paul and Dakota, I could instantly see their love for each other was beautiful and true and it was only made more clear as they both stood up in front of not only their closest friends and family but the public too (including the Mayor), as they declared their love for a lifetime together!

I loved that they both included their sweet little dogs in the wedding procession, a long a wedding party of close friends to support them and Paul was walked down the aisle by his Mom and Dad , followed by Dakota with his Mom.

I have to admit was a little bit star struck getting to watch Vance Joy performing “Fire and Tide” while Paul and Dakota took to the dance floor for their first dance!  How many couples get to say they had Vance Joy personally perform at their wedding! So Awesome!

The day was warm and the sun was bright. It truly was a beautiful day for a Wedding!

It was a pleasure capturing your day Paul and Dakota and I wish you a lifetime of happiness.
