Ashton and Michelle Married – Sooke Victoria

This is our favorite type of wedding; Located at a family home with close family and friends and lots of personal touches. This makes for an intimate and emotion filled wedding that Theresa and I feel very lucky to be a part of. One of the most memorable moments from Ashton and Michelle’s wedding was that they had their friend officiate the ceremony, dressed as Gandalf. Nick’s ceremony had many references to gaming, which is a passion of both the bride and groom and therefore made for a very personalized ceremony.

There were many family members and friends on hand to help out with the wedding preparations; from food preparation, removing chair covers when the rain started just before the ceremony to everything in between. Getting to spend time with these important people in Ashton and Michelle’s lives makes the wedding that much more special.

Almost all the woodwoork in this house was done by the grooms father and uncles. The center piece boxes were also crafted by the grooms dad.

Ashton’s dad made this custom gaming table (more later) and the first dice to be thrown on it came up on 20. Good luck!

And just in case weddings weren’t stressful enough, the rain started just before the ceremony.
