I first met Melissa and Matt at the Tri-Cities Wedding show back in the Spring of 2015. I knew immediately that they were an incredibly fun-loving couple, and this was confirmed after we subsequently met for coffee a few weeks later and set up an awesome engagement shoot for them and their fur baby, Benton.
One of the hardest parts of planning a wedding is finding a venue that is a good fit, but this couple nailed it by choosing the gorgeous, rustic Minnekhada Lodge in Coquitlam. The dark wood and warm lights ended up complimenting the pouring rain that persisted throughout their entire wedding day perfectly. Tucked inside (except when they braved the elements for their mid-day shoot), we enjoyed a delicious warm meal from the Basil Pasta Bar, heartfelt speeches, and dancing on into the night until we ventured out once more for a requested “superhero” sparkler shot which wrapped up the day.
