Golden Hour for Cody + Erin

The Golden Hour did not disappoint as the bride and groom exchanged their vows. Those sweet warm gold tones set the mood for a spectacularly enchanting occasion.

By the water and with the majestic mountains as a backdrop, Sunshine Coast’s stunning Sechelt Inlet was the perfect setting for this couple’s quiet elopement.

This lovely bride chose a gown made of delicate floral patterned lace with a train that suits the free flow feel of an outdoor elopement.

And though bright and bold colours in a bouquet are fun, there is something to be said for a soft, subtle bouquet of pink and white flowers— this is fine example of floral arrangements complementing and not overshadowing the main attraction. The bride’s natural beauty is further accentuated by her simple makeup and loose golden locks.

Finally, can we all just take a minute to address the elephant in the room? The groom was wearing a hat—and boy did he wear it well! Captured strolling alongside his bride boasting a beautiful flower crown, the groom wore a grey hat to match his three-piece suit. Head to toe looking rather dashing, this final piece really completes his look. Some have said wedding hats are a thing of the past. We are happy to say those people have just been proven wrong.

TIPS: If you’re considering a tie the knot at the golden hour, be sure to plan accordingly as the time sun the sets changes easily an hour from one month to another.
