It was a wild ride...

working alongside the friendly team of television show Platinum Weddings at the amazing Miami wedding of Lauren + Kris!

Some quick behind-the-scenes shots before we share the wedding images.

The producer, camera crew, and PA pause to check out Lauren's engagement album on spa day (for the bridesmaids).


James (love that hat!) getting the shot on golf day (for the groomsmen).


And sharing space with (just half!) the camera and sound crew while Kris gets ready on the big day.


We had a pretty fun crew ourselves: Chris+Lynn, TimCo, and Laura Ann!

Lauren+Kris =Vintage! 50's Rehearsal Dinner



Lauren and Kris wanted something totally original for their rehearsal dinner - so they went with a 50's party at a Vintage Car Museum! How fun is that?!

The classic cars around the room really added to the theme.




White Light Event Design made sure all the details were just right: tv dinners, candy stands, milkshakes - and even Lucy & Ricky were there!



Lauren & her bridesmaids in their poodle skirts hamming it up for the camera.



Kris and the guys hanging out on a vintage Packard.



Photo-booth fun!



Lauren's parents and the bridesmaids laughing at the diner counter.



Outside for a few quick fun shots.







An impromptu dance between Mr Book and his daughter - these two are so close.



The groom's cake: a golf bag for the golfer (who announced his Nike sponsorship - congrats!!).



The speeches were full of laughter.

MOB & MOG share a laugh during Lauren's brother Chase's speech.



Lauren's aunts threaten to reveal some secrets about Lauren's dad!



Lots of tears too.




Love this one of Kris.



The happy couple thank their guests and remind everyone to get a good night's sleep - big wedding the next day!

Lindsey+Andrew=The Big Easy



Amazing city & amazing couple! The laid-back, colourful city of New Orleans was the destination of choice for Lindsey and Andrew. And what a great location for a wedding - I think it's our new favourite city! Though it was incredibly warm (especially for Vancouverites like us!), we took it slow and easy through the hot summer streets and had a day to remember!

First up, the details.









The beautiful, elegant Lindsey.





Excited to see her groom for their First Look.



We love it when couples decide to see each other before the ceremony - they get to have a special meaningful moment together and we get to have a little extra time with them afterwards to create some great images.



Ahh, love!





Up on the balcony.



It wouldn't be New Orleans without the music!



Or the old, decaying buildings of the French Quarter.



Or the partying! (I couldn't resist this one - look at orange-shirt guy!).



Andrew & Lindsey's wedding party looked smokin'!



And they were totally up for a celebratory drink before the ceremony.



Lemon drop, anyone?



Then it was off to the St Louis Cathedral, one of the country's oldest churches and the place where Lindsey's parents first met over twenty years ago.



A quiet moment before the walk down the aisle.















Married!



The Second Line - a New Orleans tradition. Parading through the street celebrating with a brass band - this was so much fun!



Lindsey's dad enjoying the party





One last image of the couple & the city skyline. Congratulations, Lindsey & Andrew!
