Winter elopement in Vancouver: Kellen + Jeff

We started off our 2022 season with this winter elopement in Vancouver. Kellen and Jeff celebrated their wedding on New Year’s day in what I can only describe as a magical snow landscape. 🙂

Jelger and I occasionally visit Pacific Spirit Park in UBC, but this time it looked like Narnia. What a fantastic location for a winter wedding ceremony! Despite the freezing cold, these two were all smiles! After their short but sweet ceremony and some forest portraits, we drove to a nearby beach.

Using the word cold for what we experienced on the beach is an understatement. The wind chilled everyone’s bones and even with jackets, it felt hard to stay outside! Previously the forest protected us more from the elements. But Kellen and Jeff were determined! I absolutely love the look of the snow on the beach (definitely a first for me) and I’m glad they went for it!

There may have been a lot of talk about the warm and indoor activities for after our photo session. 😉 And Kellen came prepared with hand warmers and leggings. Find a couple more tips here for your own elopement in the snow!

Thank you very much for starting 2022 with us you two! What a memorable day.
