Stevi and Cody first met in theatre during the production of Legally Blonde: the Musical. As time went on, a connection was in the works. It wasn’t until they both stared in leading roles in Pride and Prejudice as…wait for it…Elizabeth and Mr.Darcy that the two became a couple. Cody later proposed on stage, and a year later, here we are.
Stevi got ready in the suite at Dolphins Resort with her girls and I don’t think I’ve ever walked into a room on a wedding day with the air quite as calm. Stevi has a way of making everyone around her feel like family, and the whole day went on with a lot of laughs, hugs and cheers! They lucked out with the most beautiful October day, which meant we were able to take the scheduled helicopter up to the mountain top for photos before their beautiful ceremony on the beach.
Cody and Stevi, you two are exceptional. You made me feel like a part of your wedding day and not just your photographer. Your love for each other, as well as everyone around you, is evident and I can already tell you have a long and happy future ahead of you. I wish you both all the happiness in the world and I am so grateful I was able to be your wedding photographer!

Cody and Stevi opted to see each other before the wedding ceremony to allocate extra time for photos…love them!
Stevi chose Dolphins Resort in Campbell river because of its forest and ocean views…she couldn’t choose between the two so she opted for both! I have to admit this beautiful bridal party made the Pacific Coast even prettier…
Bern from Campbell River Florist worked her floral magic and created the most lovely fall bouquets…
Aren’t these girls just gorgeous?!
It’s not everyday you get taken up to a secluded mountain top for photos…
Unfortunately, we couldn’t stay up there forever, but these two certainly know how to celebrate their first day as husband and wife!
Before being tucked away for the ceremony, we quickly did a first look with Stevi and her dad…I think everyone’s eyes got a little misty witnessing the love these two share.
The look you give the first man you ever loved as you’re about to marry the second…
After family formals, we decided to stay on the beach for a few more photos before the sun completely dissapeared…Best.Decision.Ever.
Stevi and Cody first met in theatre and fell in love while doing Pride and Prejudice while playing…wait for it…Mr.Darcy and Elizabeth! They had references to the book throughout the reception.
One of my favourite moments is the First Dance because it’s a moment just for the bride and groom, all for themselves…
And the night continued with lots of dancing…
