David & Liesbeth – Adventure Elopement – Wells Gray Park

Wow. Wow. WOW!! David and Liesbeth are so lovely and trusting it is beautiful to be around. They told me about what they do when they go out to dinner, and I believe it says so much for their character; David will call the restaurant a week prior, chat and get to know the chef, tell the chef a little bit about him an Liesbeth, and then explain that they will be eating at his restaurant in a week. This is where David asks the Chef to prepare for them whatever he would like and not be restricted by a menu; he is the chef with the skills, knowledge and taste, they want to see what he would cook when free to cook what he would like! They trust the Chef so much they never even look at the menu. They have the same game-plan with Photographers. So when I first spoke with Liesbeth and she said that they wanted to elope, and the location and itinerary was entirely up to me! I thought I had died and went to heaven. An adventure elopement. Booya!! I always say I am a better photographer when I have a waterfall or a wedding dress - add a crazy in love couple to the scene and it was the Best. Day. Ever. Liesbeth bought her dress the week before, a local Clearwater florist created a beautiful bouquet, their bests friends from Saskatchewan joined to witnesses, and their Pastor from Kamloops was up for the adventure - everything came together perfectly. David and Liesbeth drove up from Kamloops and I met them for the first time in Clearwater moments before they were to be married. I was instantly greeted with so much warmth and love I knew we were in for a great afternoon. We drove up to Wells Gray together, laughing most of the way, held the ceremony at the base of Dawson Falls, enjoyed wine in the forest near by and then continued onto the iconic Helmcken Falls and a few other locations in Wells Gray Park. David and Liesbeth, you two are lovely, give the greatest hugs, are up for anything, and have so much hope and trust. Thank you so much for having me as part of your wedding day. It was beautiful. I felt honoured.
