Alisha and Dave [parksville wedding photographer]

Brian and I made the trek over to Parksville for Dave and Alishas wedding, we were both so excited to see the island, and have a little weekend get away.. Stupidly, I forgot to book the ferry over to Nanaimo, and we couldn’t get on, so we took the ferry over to Victoria, and drove to Parksville. A bit of a longer trek then we originally had planned, but it was so beautiful!

note to self: book the ferry long in advance if it’s a long weekend.. duh!

Alisha and Dave are a one of a kind couple. Being part of their wedding was so amazing! I think they may be the most laid back couple I’ve met, it’s like nothing could phase them!

Alisha and the girls started their day at the Mi by Kiyo Salon! They did such a fabulous job on hair and makeup.. And they had a cute little puppy hanging out with us too!

Look at his beautiful necklace. The inspiration for this wedding was beach glass, so beautiful!

We had planned to do a first look, but time didn’t permit, so they saw each other on at the alter!

and a goofy one.. just for fun

Now it’s time for a few photos with just the happy couple!

They had both the ceremony and reception at the Parksville Beachfront Resort.. It was so beautiful, and the food was delicious.. I may or may not have had 2 plates..

don’t judge, you would have too

They had such an awesome candy bar! After the wedding, Dave insisted I make a big candy bag to give to Brian.. Thank you Dave, he loved it.. But now after every wedding he asks me where his candy bag is!

And now, time to put on our dancing shoes!


This little guy was so awesome!

Alisha and Dave were so smart planning their wedding on Canada day.. They had fireworks right outside the reception venue.. (and Dave will never forget their anniversary)

Thank you again for asking me to be part of such an amazing wedding, honestly, it was such a pleasure!
