Rob + Michelle were married last fall at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Parish in East Vancouver and their reception was held at the charming and very popular Brock House Restaurant at Point Grey. As Vancouver wedding photographers, we’re obsessive about weather reports, especially those in the Autumn wedding season. So it was to our pleasant surprise that the day started off sunny and stayed dry almost all day long. The bad weather stayed away just long enough for Michelle and Rob to have a beautiful September wedding with a mix of clear skies and soft overcast light.
After the wedding ceremony in Vancouver, we got to know the wedding party fairly well during the photo sessions that afternoon. Daniel discovered that one of Michelle’s bridesmaids was a friend of a previous d’Soleil bride and that some of the groomsmen, who also grew up in Daniel’s old East Vancouver neighbourhood, even knew some of Daniel’s old high school friends. This made spending the afternoon with the wedding party just like kicking back with old friends at a wedding.
In the evening, they held a Portuguese and Italian-style wedding reception at the Brock House, which meant lots of really good food, a relaxed family atmosphere, lots of love, photos, and both fun and heartfelt speeches that painted a beautiful picture of Michelle and Rob’s life before they met and while they were dating. There were many emotional moments, especially during the speeches from the couple’s immediate family and closest friends. The evening unfolded beautifully and we have to express just how much we loved Michelle and Rob’s impressive wedding decor – they have excellent taste and a talent for decorating. The flower arrangements and table settings were exquisite and that beautiful wedding cake was divine. Michelle and Rob also made a contribution to the BC Cancer Foundation on behalf of their wedding guests, which was so kind of them. The wedding celebrations lasted late into the evening and it was another wedding we really enjoyed being a part of. Congratulations again Michelle + Rob!
