Leading up to the Gondola Wedding
Finally everything has come full circle. We photographed these two for their Iona Beach engagement session and following their love story from start to finish has been an honor of ours. Batya and Andrew were always such a humble couple and their mountain wedding followed suite. It was a lovely intimate wedding with only their close friends and family present. Their love for nature and being outdoors certainly played a huge part in their Sea to Sky Gondola Wedding plans.
Celebration of love at the Sea to Sky Gondola
One of their favorite places is the Sea to Sky Gondola. It was a perfect backdrop for their special day. With 360-degree views of mountains, skyline, and jaw-dropping nature make their wedding come to life.
Along with choosing a place that meant so much to the couple, they personalized their celebration in more ways than one. Andrew’s wedding band was custom made. It has the Tantalus mount range engraved in the design! This range is visible from the Sea to Sky Gondola and was such a beautiful connection to the couple. Not to mention that Batya’s ring also held special a meaning too. Her ring was made from Moissanite which was a stone that was first discovered in a meteor crater! Turns out, there isn’t much of this material to be found naturally. Therefore it’s extremely rare! Rare beauty seems fitting for Batya. Not only did they choose exceptional jewelry for each other, it was also environmentally friendly with their recycled gold bands.
Their Sea to Sky Gondola Wedding started with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony followed by the wedding ceremony and then dinner with close friends and family. After the dinner we had almost three full hours for their wedding photo session! We spent most of our time at the beautiful Gondola. We also took some time at the scenic Furry Creek to finish their beautiful day. From their engagement session to their wedding, this couple is special and we were happy to be a part of it.
