Courtney & Owen – Rainforest Wedding in Tofino, BC

 

There’s something truly magical about the west coast. I have felt the draw to head over the rocky mountains and to the rocky shores of BC ever since I was young. I lived on Vancouver Island for 6 years, and there is definitely part of me that never leaves the island when I left for Calgary so many years ago. When Courtney and Owen mentioned that they were planning a wedding in Tofino I had a hard time holding back my excitement. Even though hopping on a plane would’ve saved some time no doubt, I savoured every kilometre of the drive, the ferry, and then the twisty highway that leads across the island from Port Alberni to the picturesque town of Tofino on the west coast. Being the rainforest, it definitely lived up to it’s reputation on the wedding day save for a couple precious hours when we were out to do photos. I couldn’t believe our luck, walking outside mere minutes after buckets of water were falling from the sky, to see bright sunshine and blue skies. The attention to detail at their wedding was amazing – you could tell a lot of thought had been put into every personal touch. After running around with the crew for photos, we returned for the reception, capped off by a beautiful display of fireworks launched from the beach. Whoever came up with the idea of playing the theme song from ‘Reading Rainbow’ during the cake cutting, brilliant! I loved every minute of that trip, their wedding day, and relish the thought of heading back out to the coast for the next adventure. _D7X8696 _D3X5876 _D3X5563 _D3X5625 _D3X5830 _D3X5946 _D7X8242 _D3X5963 _D3X6082 _D7X8203 _D3X6100 _D3X6398 _D3X6438 _D3X6521 _D3X6694 _D3X6738 _D3X6744 _D7X8111 _D3X6796 _D3X6849 _D3X6896 _D3X6925 _D3X7010 _D3X7123 _D3X7198 _D7X8771 _D3X7617 _D3X7508 _D3X7560 _D7X8841 _D3X7890 _D3X8095 _D7X8939 _D7X8961
