We had a fabulous day with the lovely Alayne & Daragh and their wonderful family and friends on their wedding day. Alayne & Daragh’s love story is a delightful and romantic one. Alayne met Daragh when she was traveling and working in London. When her UK working holiday visa was up she came home to Vancouver and the two lost touch. Daragh managed to track Alayne down when a friend suggested he look for her on Facebook and the rest is history! Their ceremony was at the beautiful St. Augustine’s Church in Kitsilano. Alayne & Daragh had their reception at the Seasons in the Park Restaurant which was a perfect venue to show off the beauty of Vancouver to Daragh’s family and friends who flew in from Ireland and England, and the food is crazy delicious there too!
Thank you, Alayne & Daragh, for sharing a day filled with joy & laughter with us. Congratulations!

Alayne’s charming mom and sisters helping Alayne get ready. Alayne’s mom kept on calling us cute on the wedding day which made us smile (& blush a little!).
Isn’t Alayne stunning?
Daragh tied his tie the fastest of any groom that I’ve seen.
Isn’t Daragh’s mom gorgeous? She is incredibly sweet as well.
St. Augustine’s is such a beautiful church.
Alayne’s sister and Daragh’s brother started to walk down the aisle before the service was over. It was really cute…
… and funny as you can see from Alayne’s giggles.
Such lovely families coming together.
Aren’t they so sweet together?
Daragh and his groomsmen suits were custom made and had their initials stitched on the inside pocket and (being Irish) green lining in their jackets.
Cocktail hour was lovely out on the deck with the gorgeous views overlooking Vancouver.
I loved Daragh’s mom’s fascinator.
The speeches were so fun, filled with love and gentle ribbing.
Alayne’s sisters read out the email she sent to them when she first met Daragh, which was hilarious.
Alayne & Daragh asked the guests to sing a song in order for them to kiss. The staff at the Seasons in the Park were having so much fun with the guests that they got up and sang for Alayne and Daragh too!
It was a beautiful summer evening.
Alayne & Daragh had their first dance just as the fireworks for the Celebration of Light started to go off in the distance. It was magical.
