Michelle Cervo- Family and Newborn Photographer » Mission, Abbotsford, Fraser Valley portrait photographer, specializing in authentic family and newborn photography

Wow.. wow.. WOW! I thought I would write this post while it’s still fresh in my mind, and I’m still high from excitement! This wedding was amazing, from the love, to the laughter and friendship displayed throughout the whole day, it was one of a kind..

You may remember Kim and Matt from their engagement shoot last year or from Raelene and Tim’s wedding last July. When they booked me for their wedding, I was more then excited. I knew Kim would look gorgeous, and Matt is just way too handsome.

The wedding was held at Rowena’s Inn in Harrison Mills BC (in between Mission and Harrison). I love shooting in the Agassiz, Harrison area, the scenery is absolutely amazing (and it’s really close to a ton of my friends, thanks again Smith family f0r letting me crash at your house).

I started with the girls, Cheryl from C2Makeup was on hand (multi-tasking bridesmaid/makeup artist) making everyone look even more gorgeous.

Kim and Matt are so generous, they gave everyone a special gift to thank them for being part of their celebration

Off to the ceremony

Now for some portraits

Beautiful girls

Who are also hilarious!

You guys are smokin’ hot!

Now it’s time for some portraits of the happy couple

Kim used to dance, and wanted to incorporate that in her photos.. LOVE LOVE LOVE

Your kids are going to be gorgeous! Now hurry up and make some babies so we can have play dates!!

Look at you, Mr. Handsome!

I love Kim’s ring, nice work Matt!

Now, it’s reception time!!

The decor was so beautiful, Kim and Matt’s vision was put together by the Wedding Design Studio

After a delicious meal, it was first dance time!

I love that you can see the gorgeous BC mountains in the background!

Oh wait.. I can’t forget (no who am I kidding,  I will never forget) two of the bridesmaids thought of an extra special present for the bride and groom.. They flew in Michael Bernard Fitzgerald .. The actual Michael Bernard Fitzgerald.. to serenade the bride.. WHAT THE HECK, best wedding present ever!

Then.. It was party time!

Thank you for asking me to be a part of your day! I love you guys!!

What a beautiful day, I’m not sure how else to describe it. Honestly, it was perfect.

Joel and Brianna were married at the Falls Golf Course, with a few hiccups. IE: The Falls went bankrupt and they had no idea where they were going to get married (as you can see, it all worked out..kind of). Even with the hiccups, they were both so relaxed and happy.

I soon learned from the hilarious speeches, Brianna and Joel met at UFV in some random class. They went on a few dates, and all that Brianna could say to her sisters and mom was “he is just so cute”. Don’t worry Brianna, I’m sure he was saying the same thing about you too!

And now it’s picture time!

Brianna’s mom walked her down the aisle, it was so beautiful!

I loved all the flowers, the colour combination popped just right!

First Kiss!

Look at those happy faces!

Cheer for the happy couple!

We headed to Minter Gardens to do the formal photos,

Look at that beautiful ring.. My gosh, good work Joel

Now, reception time! They had great details at the wedding, I love when brides spend an extra bit of time to have some beautiful details

Thank you, thank you, thank you for asking me to join in this fantastic celebration!

Good luck on your move to Edmonton, school, and all the crazy adventures you two are going to get into in the coming years!

Katrina and Sean are one of those quiet couples who are just way too sweet, shooting their wedding was a breeze, they were so laid back and kind.

Both the wedding reception and ceremony was held at the Harrison Hot Springs Hotel, which is always a pleasure, such a beautiful spot!

I started off getting ready with the girls

Katrina was told that her dress was the smallest sold this year, she is so tiny and yet looks so ladylike and beautiful.

I loved their little smirks to each other

The flower girl was adorable

Mr. & Mrs. Emo!

Time for some family shots

I don’t usually post family shots, but this Grandma was just so cheeky!

Congratulations you two! It was a pleasure to be a part of your wedding!

It’s true.. I like to have fun

I was thinking of putting it out there on my website ” if you’re not fun, get lost”.. and then I thought that might be rude..

So instead, I send this little note out to people interested in booking


* I like to laugh.. a lot.. that awkward laugh, that almost guarantees you will laugh AT me.. don’t worry, I’ll still think we are laughing together.

* I can only book your wedding if you and your spouse to be are fun/like to smile and are completely in love.. if not, sorry..

* If you book me for the reception, I will rip it up on the dance floor with you guys…. and I might even have at least one plate of dinner..

So, consider your self warned.


That’s all for now, I’ll be posting some awesome picture of some beautiful later this week!
