Wedding faces

Couples who we work with us often say, "you were the perfect mix of funny yet meaningful, light-hearted but serious. These four photos by D'Soleil Photography capture the essence of this so well!  Thanks to Nicole and Tyler, and their officiant Cory Dueck for being the "models"!

You'll probably laugh.

You might cry.

We'll be right your side.
And we'll know when to get out of the way.


Corrina and Gavin had to move their wedding ceremony at Van Dusen Gardens inside because the biggest storm of the year was coming! You can see all the leaves and pine needles under their feet. But they didn't even flinch. They were so happy to be married!  

They are just strolling through the debris.

We couldn't resist including this special guest's photo.

Here's our officiant Jane leading them through their vows.

So cute!

Jane teamed up with Erica Miller Photography and here's what the bride had to say: 

Our officiant for our 'blustery' wedding day was Jane Halton, and she was wonderful, and our photographer was the very talented Erica Miller!  We chose the Elopement Package that included both an officiant as well as an hour of photography for a VERY fair price.  Both ladies were so awesome with helping making our day that much more special.  We had a very small ceremony on a VERY stormy day, but the ceremony and the photos made one totally forget about all the turmoil going on outside.  I will forever appreciate this business and all that they did for us. 


Wedding in the Trees

Sonja and David gathered a few close friends and family for an intimate gathering in the trees.

Here's our officiant Bobbi doing her thing!

When you get married in the forest, you can sign the wedding registry on a giant stump.

From mountains to valleys, we'll get you hitched!

Our officiant, Lani Brunn, tells the story of her latest wedding with Sky Helicopters!

Amy and Jon decided if they travel all the way from Utah to get married, they wanted an adventure in the middle of nature. Going by helicopter to the top of a mountain was just the ticket! 

Imagine their disappointment when the weather was too crazy for mountain tops. 
However, it was just right for the valley. With a little bit of adventure, surrounded by glorious nature they were married on a little beach in the middle of paradise, Congratulations Amy and Jon! 


Thirteen Women and a Top Hat

In early August, I (Jane) had the privilege of marrying Devon and Morgan in a very brown 'grassy' park in Delta. We gathered under a wide white tent with rainbow fans atop each chair.  Devon and Morgan were one of the first summer wedding couples I met with this year and I looked forward to their wedding for months.  They were so easy to talk to, fun-filled and so excited to be married (after a very long engagement).  

As we were finalizing details closer to the day, one of their emails read "We have a great idea regarding our last name....details to follow." This automatically peeked my interest because last names are a tricky thing these days. My husband and I kept our own last names after we got married, an option we don't love. But we also didn't like the idea of changing them or one of us changing a name. The hyphen works, but it wasn't calling to us. So we took the path of least resistance and did nothing.  Morgan and Devon did the opposite of nothing.  Here's how it went down:

Jane: Please join me in celebration as I present to you for the first time as a married couple, Morgan and Devon....uh, oh, oh no...they didn't actually tell me their new last name." 

(My panic face was totally believable)  

Jane: I know they were trying to combine them - was it Crumpy? or Stumpy or Crowedy? Or Stordy-Crump? No, none of those seems right. What should we do?  

(The wedding co-ordinator runs something up to the front)

Jane: Wait, what is Morgan’s great-grandfather's top hat doing here?  Oh, what?  Oh, we are going to pick a last name out of this hat!  In the hat must be their four last name options: Crump and Stordy (Morgan & Devon’s current last names) and Campbell and Ross, (which are their mothers' maiden names).   Hold on, we'll figure this out!

Jane (to the crowd): Are you guys ready? And Devon & Morgan, are you ready to pick the name out and hand it to me (without looking!)?

Jane: Now join me in celebration as I present for the first time as officially, legally, totally, completely married couple, Devon and Morgan STORDY.

Did I mention there was THIRTEEN WOMEN in all up front?

Even the limo driver wanted a picture with them! 

Here's what Morgan had to say about the ceremony:

Devon and I would like to thank Young Hip and Married. And of course, the lovely Jane Halton for making our Ceremony the BEST part of our special day. Jane used the perfect amount of sentiment and humour which left our guests in tears and laughter! I was a little nervous about sharing my vows aloud...that's a lie, I was terrified lol. Janes energy was so calm and kind along with looking at my beautiful bride, I killed it. I would recommend this company and especially Jane to any couple looking to tie the knot. Thanks again! Cheers!
Morgan and Devon STORDY!!! :)


All photos are from their official wedding photographer, Danielle Dobson. I always say one of the best things a wedding photographer can do is be discreet.  Not only was Danielle able to take photos while out of the way, her work is fantastic! 


Eliza & Ryan at Strathcona Park Lodge

Here's a review from one of Kristen's couples this summer...

Thank you again, Kristen, for doing such an amazing job with our ceremony. Everyone told us that it was so clearly a reflection of us and that makes us so happy!  

We've just gotten back from our honeymoon and have been looking at the footage that our videographer shot of the ceremony - brings tears of happiness to our eyes!  Thank you so much again, 
Lots of love and much gratitude,
Eliza & Ryan

Here is a brief reflection from Lani on one of her summer weddings. 

Stephanie Perkins once said, "For the two of us, home isn't a place. It is a person. And we are finally home."


Nine years ago, Nathan and Carola met for the first time on a camping trip.  On that trip, Nathan asked Carola out on their first date and since that moment, and they have been inseparable.  They have truly found home in each other.  

After dreaming with you about what your ceremony could look like, it was magical to see it all come together.  What an honour to be with you on your wedding day, standing beside the river at UBC Boathouse, as you finally said, "I do."  Lots of love as you step into this next chapter of your lives together! 


Tying the Knot

One of the most common compliments we get is how personalized and creative we make the ceremony.  We have gone up to glaciers in helicopters, hiked up mountains, worn costumes all to make couples' ceremonies just what they want.

This month our officiant Randy Hamm married Shawn and Gail on a twilight wedding cruise.  When it came time to tie the knot, they literally tied a fisherman's knot together aboard the ship.

Congratulations to the Bishops!


Love in the trees

Our officiant, Lani Brunn, made dreams come true under the trees of Pacific Spirit Park this summer!

Here she is with Ashley and Dave who left everyone in tears as they shared their vows with each other.  

The gorgeous set up was done by Filosophi, a Vancouver based wedding and event planning company that we love working with!   

Congratulations Ashley and Dave!
