Maddy & Matt’s Vancouver Island Intimate Wedding at Milner Gardens

Maddy and Matt have easily got to be one of the kindest and most genuine human beings I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. From the moment I met them, I knew that their love was special and infectious. Maddy, the beautiful bride, wore her Rituals Of Love Bridal dress which left us all completely shook. We had to make sure that we took plenty of solo bridals of her throughout the day because she was just such a stunning bride.

I brought along my handy dandy film camera as well, so throughout the day I was making sure to document those off-camera-type moments and create a sense of nostalgia throughout their wedding day. Maddy and Matt had a gorgeous outdoor ceremony with the ocean and mountain views gracing their presence. Wow, was it a gorgeous day. The night ended with an intimate dinner as we celebrate the newlyweds dancing, fingers and eyes locked on one another. It was romantic, organic and everything you could hope for in a Vancouver Island intimate wedding.
