A few weeks ago on a very rainy day in Vancouver I headed over to Ambleside to shoot an intimate gathering at The Beach House restaurant. There was a beautiful bride and handsome groom but there was no wedding. This was very unique experience because I usually spend the day with the bride but this time I met her coming in the door of the restaurant. The couple plan on getting married in a civil ceremony when they move to Montreal but they wanted to have a get together with friends and family first. We were lucky to have about a thirty minute break in the torrential downpour to shoot a few pictures outside.
