New Westminster Wedding: Kimmie and Chris

Kimmie and Chris had a casual and intimate wedding surrounded by their closest family and friends.


Kimmie and Chris met at West Coast Flying Trapeze when Kimmie was planning her birthday and have been together for 4 years. Chris was one of our coaches and the owner of the school. She didn't think much about any of the coaches, but apparently, after we left, he told one of the other coaches that she was exactly the kind of person he wanted to date.

She kept going to Flying Trapeze, and a few months later they started dating. They moved in together shortly after, and then he proposed at Christmas 2016. They now own/run the circus school together, and spend most of their time that we're not working training, hanging out with our dogs (Tali and Russell), and having pizza and Netflix dates every Friday night.

They got married in spring at their own apartment, which is an intimate location in New Westminster. Their ceremony at the same venue as the reception, which was great having everything all in one place. They chose their apartment because it’s so cosy and relaxed. I love shooting small and intimate weddings because you really get to get a good feel of everyone around you. Despite raining for most of the day, the weather cleared up at night, just in time for Kimmie and Chris to be able to have their sparkler first dance.

The best part of the day was Just how easy going and relaxed the couple was, because raining all day but they didn't seem to bother them at all. From doing the first look in the rain to walking through puddles, they did it all in true Vancouver fashion. Oh, and they cut their cake with a sword. That was pretty cool too!
