Sky helicopters wedding: Taryn and Seth

It’s not every day that a couple travels all the way from Chicago to Vancouver for a Sky Helicopters wedding. Taryn and Seth did just that. They eloped last November on a typical West Coast day in Pitt Meadows.

I was super excited for this day, not in the least because it got to fly in a helicopter for the first time! With only room for 1 photographer, Jelger graciously allowed me to photograph the wedding. (Thank you Jelger!)

The weather forecast predicted rain and after taking off, the clouds started packing and a dense fog covered the mountain where the elopement would take place. The pilot steered us out of the clouds right away. Instead of a mountain top wedding, we all started looking for a unique spot in the fields!

We landed on a tiny dirt road (I didn’t even know that was possible!) right next to a cranberry field. There were beautiful mountains in the backdrop. Taryn and Seth didn’t let anything spoil the mood and started brainstorming right away about cranberry themed things for their future wedding anniversaries. I loved it!

Shawn, the fabulous officiant, brought a big white umbrella and the couple had the most romantic ceremony in the pouring rain. They were most definitely the only people that EVER got married at that spot. It couldn’t have been more unique and special.

After the ceremony, the day wasn’t over! I picked up Jelger on the way to downtown and together we cruised trough Vancouver. We hopped out on some different fun photo locations. It was really neat to have a driver for this and we got to see some typical Vancouver landmarks such as the library, the convention centre, some spots in Gastown etc.

We ended the day with the two of them having a bear at Steamworks brewery.

Cheers Taryn and Seth! The Vancouver weather threw you lemons and you made cranberry lemonade. 😉
