erika and lance [wedding photography, powell river]

I looooove autumn.

Those who know me well know this is because I love layers - jackets upon sweaters and scarves. I feel so exhilarated outside, in the cool, crisp air with the smell of chimney smoke and salt air. We are so lucky to live in a place where we experience four defined seasons, especially after the intense summer that we had. I'm breathing easy and guilt-free spending time indoors.

That said, I love fall weddings, too. Erika and Lance's beautiful celebration embraces the natural beauty of the season, and, luckily, the weather wasn't nearly as miserable as fall weather could be. In fact, it was downright lovely.

Here are some of my favorites from their day.

Yes, the day was beautiful, but the wind has a mind of its own with veils...

The rich fall colours and beautiful bouquets!

A champagne toast for the newlyweds, and homemade fall bounty - maple sugar cookie favours, gourd centrepieces, dried apples from the bride's family's backyard and a homemade wedding cake

Congratulations to Lance and Erika - may you have many years of love and laughter ahead of you.
