“A picnic basket, giant balloons, and cute cheese platters! I knew as soon as I met Kym and Rey that their engagement and wedding was going to be special. Their DIY style was the perfect mix of vintage meets elegant. We hiked through a West Coast rainforest and finished off with a sunset picnic complete with champagne overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It was such a privilege to be a part of their story and to create friendships with such amazing people.” – Whitney Lane Photography
“We were so lucky to have found Whitney and Kel from Whitney Lane Photography while browsing the internet for Vancouver wedding photographers. I was initially drawn to the pictures I came across of their travels throughout Europe and then I saw their wedding photography and was even more blown away! When we met Whitney and Kel for the first time, we felt like we had known them forever. They made us feel comfortable right from the start and I knew immediately that they was the ones for us. :) We could not have made a better choice for such an important decision…
..Planning our wedding definitely brought out a lot of creativity in me that I never new I had! Most of the décor elements in our wedding were DIY projects made by yours truly! One of my favorite DIY projects was made from an old set of drawers that I found at a thrift store which I cleaned, painted and used as cookie and drink trays. Welcome bags were made for each of our guests containing a jar of our favorite peach jam along with a map to the local wineries and other survival goodies for the weekend. I also made several chalkboards out of vintage frames that we used for our menu and various other signage. An old window served as our seating chart and local peaches were placed on each dinner plate with the guest name attached.
..Rey and I were married in Naramata, BC which is a very special place for us. Of all the wedding plans, what we looked forward to the most was having our closest family and friends tall together in such a special place for such an amazing weekend. Friends and family flew from all over the world to be with us on our wedding weekend. The weekend was filled with wine tours, bike rides, swimming and of course one extremely eventful and fun wedding! It was truly amazing to see so many people we love so much be all together to witness our first day as husband and wife.
Looking forward or looking back, our hearts are completely FULL of gratitude. We are so thankful for all the special people in our lives which now include our photographers Whitney and Kel :)” – Kim, the bride
