Vernon Wedding Photographer | Devon & Justine’s Timber Ridge Trails Wedding

Vernon Wedding Photographer

Devon & Justine’s Timber Ridge Trails Wedding

 Red Bloom Photography

I don’t even know where to start with this stunning Vernon Wedding.  Lets start by how we

connected for the wedding. I shot Devon’s brothers wedding 3 years ago and they have been

the most amazing clients and refer me to all of their friends. The biggest compliment to

me as a wedding photographer is your referrals. It means the world to me when my couples

refer me to friends and family. When I met Justine emailed me about their Vernon wedding,

I was like wait September 3rd??? No way, I already have a wedding in Kelowna on September 4th

so it worked out great that I traveled there for both wedding.  Justine got ready at the most beautiful

little B&B. It was like a photographers playground. All these cute little rooms and vintage furniture.

I focused on two rooms for the same reason ….the light. One had lots of light and one had hardly any.

Well I love light bright photos, there is something so beautiful about very moody

window light and you will see some of these photos towards the end of bridal prep.  The boys

prep was in a local hotel and like all groom prep it was short and sweet, like they do in 15 minutes

what we do in 1 hour or longer ha ha!  Devon & Justine got married at the stunning…like STUNNING

Timber Ridge Trails. Their ceremony was outdoors with the mountains surrounding them and then

the property is stunning tree lined pathways. So the thing is, there was a 0% chance of rain on their

wedding day. Like 0% everytime we checked the weather app is said sunny but nope it rained

alot and not just sprinkled it really rained. But this awesome photographer always has

umbrellas in my car.  So well we shot in the rain, their amazing friends and family transformed

their partially outdoor reception. They brought white tent covers to put over the tables and moved

some of the tables under the main structure. It really made the wedding so intimate that

everyone pulled together to make this outdoor reception amazing. So we shot in the rain like

most weddings this summer and lucky for us sometimes it slowed down so we shot like crazy

when the rain was light.  And after photos we moved into the most intimate beautiful

outdoor reception. Everyone was cuddling under their coats and blankets and the

candles twinkled. Like the photos really can’t capture that energy and feeling.  I loved

that Devon & Justine has an open mic. So many sweet and funny stories came out of it. And I am

going to leave this little tip with you, be prepared to possibly pay to have your photographer

stay an extra hour. Alot of receptions run over in time so ask them about the costs ahead of

time and be prepared to pay for that extra hour. Okay and now here are some

words from the bride & groom.

How did you guys meet?

Devon and I met in July 2012 when I started a new job working on the construction of the new

runway in Calgary. Devon and I worked for separate companies, but due to the nature

of the work we saw each other every day – we started dating a month later.

Please share the proposal story with us?

Devon had concocted a few different ways to propose (so I was told) but I somehow always

cancelled plans or changed them, ultimately making him come up with new plans. Devon even

went as far as to call the Calgary airport and request access to the portion of the project

where we first met (for obvious reason they denied his request).
Devon said that one day, after I had cancelled a lunch he intended to propose at,

he spoke to his dad who said “what are you waiting for? Just do it”

So that night, shortly after midnight, Devon proposed to me in front of a large group of family and friends.
Most memorable moment from your wedding day?

Bride: Hearing Devon’s vows
Groom: When Justine walked down the aisle
Advice to couples planning their wedding day?

Just have fun with it – it’s still your big day and there’s no sense worrying about something you can’t control.

The rain on our wedding day, though unexpected, added to the atmosphere! All the guests

joined forces to make everything possible, the teamwork and the effort that everyone put

forward made our day extra special and it felt as though two families had really become one.
