Jay and Darlene - Wedding Day - Golden, British Columbia

 

"I love you not for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me..."

Aaah love! Isn't that line from Darlene's vow the sweetest to hear? :)

Here are the images from Jay and Darlene's rustic wedding at the lovely and quaint city of Golden, British Columbia. Held at the Hillside Lodge and Chalets, this gorgeous wedding location is not too far away from Edmonton, and the scenery is totally BREATH-TA-KING.

And yes, brides need to be fed. They can get really hungry. :)

And we always have that one friend who laughs so hard.

A very chill wedding party. They handled the noontime heat pretty well. Not to mention that we traversed a downhill path just to get to the river. Oh, boy. Tons of mosquitoes!

Jay and Darlene's first dance. "I wanna stand with you on a mountain, I wanna bathe with you in the sea. I want to live like this forever until the sky falls down on me..."
