Out of all of the couples I have ever worked with, this one is at or near the top of the pile in terms of how long we have known each other! The groom, Joel, and I grew up together on beautiful Vancouver Island, in Duncan. We grew up camping at Rathtrevor Park and getting into trouble (stargazing on the beach is fun, but it is wise to tell your parents where you are going hehe), hiking (the Nootka trail was my favourite trail by far), and drinking beer and chatting in the hot tub. Joel even helped me out with some college homework when I thought I would like to be a computer science major! (that didn’t last long for me, but have a look at Joel’s website (http://www.zineer.com) for converting photos/videos to digital, as well as websites and more!
Joel and Danielle are both creative, so I knew their wedding would include a lot of creative components. Joel LOVES orange, so you may notice a touch of orange or two in this video:)
The wedding took place in Genoa Bay, BC, at Bird’s Eye Cove Farm. This was a new location for me, but when I visited in March, I was astounded! They feature a traditional hand cut timber frame facility, known as ‘The Barn’, which is set on a large farm overlooking a harbour! Gorgeous!
I hope you enjoy this video, as I really enjoyed creating it, and I think it turned out really well! I look forward to going home to the island every time, and I look forward to spending more time with Joel & Danielle!
