Vancouver forest elopement: Angela + Tanner

Last summer, Jelger and I witnessed and photographed the Vancouver forest elopement of Angela and Tanner. The two of them said their I do’s on their 10 year dating anniversary! They’ve clearly already proven they can do life together after ten years, hehe. But I love that they chose to make it official too! Stanley Park was be an excellent choice for them, because of their love for nature and the forest. And of course it’s conveniently close to the city when you’re visiting.

The pandemic threw them a curveball, as it did with so many couples. But this duo also had to rearrange their honeymoon last minute. They planned on starting a trip in BC right after their wedding, but unfortunately the forest fires changed their initial plans. Luckily they were able to make the most of it anyways. And I’m grateful we didn’t get smoke in Vancouver during their wedding.

I love how the two of them put effort into the little details. From the adorable little carpet, to their gorgeous dried flower, to a champagne toast: beautiful! Also kudos to Angela for doing her own makeup, I’m beyond impressed.

Thank you Angela and Tanner for having us as your witnesses and photographers! We enjoyed your amazing sense of humour (Belgians love dry humour, haha) and hearing about your Belgian beer adventures. Cheers to the next 10 years!
