Michael & Jared’s Intimate Wedding at Brock House

Michael & Jared’s intimate wedding at Brock House was wonderful. Jared & Michael are  so so sweet together. Jared has the best most infectious giggle we’ve heard in ages and Michael is really gentle-hearted. We really loved how they made their wedding their own and a reflection of themselves. Michael & Jared had no flowers in their wedding, because they don’t like them. Instead they had handsome brooches made for themselves and their wedding party and Colin Upright created masculine decor for them that was filled with blue lights. It was our first wedding where they didn’t have an aisle – they just walked around their guests during the ceremony and met at the top. Michael’s parents created some lovely handmade touches for Michael & Jared. They made the fun sticks with ribbons and bells on them that all the guests used to cheer the newly married couple. They also made the fake mustaches which were a huge hit with their guests. Everyone broke out in silly voices when the mustaches came out. It was hilarious. Jared & Michael had one of the best cake cuts we’ve ever seen – they used a Katana (a Japanese Samurai sword) to cut the cake. It was awesome.

Thank you so much, Michael & Jared, for sharing your unforgettable wedding day with us. Congratulations!

We headed to Jericho Beach for more portraits since that was where Michael proposed to Jared.It was such a treat for us to photograph a couple on Jericho when the beach was empty. First kiss as husband & husband and a cheer from their loved ones!I love this photo that Roger captured of Jared & Michael. Can’t you just feel their joy? Jared & Michael painted a beautiful painting for all of their guests. Isn’t that so thoughtful?Their cake cutting was the best we’ve seen! So fun that they used a Katana.Everyone had so much fun playing with the fake mustaches that Michael’s parents made.
