In Port Alberni, the heart of Vancouver Island, amidst the lush greenery, a love story unfolded on a rainy May day. This intimate backyard wedding, surrounded by the company of their dogs and a select few cherished friends and family, was a celebration of love that weathered any storm.

Victoria and Shane chose the comfort and charm of their backyard for their nuptials. The rain, rather than dampening the spirits, added a romantic touch to the occasion. Their dogs weren’t just witnesses; they were a critical part of the celebration. From donning a flower collar to stealing the occasional spotlight, their furry companions added a delightful touch to the festivities.

The guest list was intentionally small, made up of their closest friends and family. This created an intimate atmosphere, where every smile, tear, and laughter could be shared together. The rain outside only amplifies the warmth within, as laughter mingled under the cloudy skies.

Following the heartfelt ceremony, the bride, groom, and I ventured into an enchanting mossy forest to capture moments that would stand the test of time. The rain-soaked foliage, misty air, and the couple’s radiant love created a whimsical ambiance, turning a simple photoshoot into a magical adventure.

From stolen kisses under the canopy to playful twirls on rain-kissed trails, the forest photoshoot captured the spontaneity and genuine connection between Victoria and Shane. These candid moments became the heart of their wedding album, telling a story beyond words.

In capturing this enchanting tale, I am reminded that love, much like a rainy day in May, has a beauty that is timeless, enduring, and forever etched in the heart.
