On the morning of Jen and Andy’s wedding, the Vancouver air was crisp after the early morning rain, and smelled fresh of new beginnings. The fall trees painted the historic Yaletown in oranges, reds and yellows; brightly colored leaves scattered on the brick sidewalks. With it’s vintage charm and budding foodie culture, this is one of our favorite areas in Vancouver.
As was expected on a typical November day in Vancouver, it rained on the day of Jen and Andy’s wedding — but not even the rain could stop them from enjoying their day! Their easy-going nature and full-of-smiles love was contagious, making it easy to shrug off the wet and the cold. With rain pouring overhead on the glass ceiling, Jen and Andy exchanged vows in the vine-covered atrium of the Brix Restaurant in downtown Vancouver. Warm wishes carried on throughout the night, finally ending with a colorful celebration of dance.
We were so honored that Jen and Andy flew us up to be a part of their day. We can’t wait to see where the future leads them!

We love these simple, elegant shoes! Comfortable shoes can be beautiful, too!
First Look on the balcony of the L’Hermitage Hotel hotel…
… followed by quickly running for cover from the rain!
Jen and Andy are so natural together.
When the rain stopped momentarily, we ran outside for a wedding party shot!
The boys keeping warm inside as the girls weathered through the cold during the portraits.
Everybody wanted a picture of these adorable flower girls!
Random guests had to perform impromptu dances during dinner. Jen’s sister was picked … and well, it turns out she is one of the lead ballerinas at the San Francisco Ballet!
Andy’s father was tearing up the floor!
Jump rope doesn’t quite work as well when you’re wearing a wedding dress. ;)
