Barb + Ross' Stanley Park Wild Elopement
Barb and Ross hail from Chicago where they planned to take an Alaskan cruise, departing from Vancouver. A few months before they were set to arrive, they connected with Young Hip & Married to inquire about an Elopement wedding. Only telling a select few friends, they entrusted YH&M and I to create the perfect day! I was so stoked to be apart of such a secret elopement!
Barb and Ross are the definition of comfortability! I felt like I had known them for years, despite only conversing through 3 or 4 emails. Barb is the light of Ross' eyes - she definitely pulls him out of his environment. She even got him to bust a move in the middle of the forest while she sang "their" song, while they slow danced.
While this is Ross' second marriage, Barb had never experienced marriage and at one point assumed it would never happen. After 12 years of smooches, kitchen dancing, and hand holding he finally proposed to her after a hiking trip in Colorado. Barb was the epitome of Bushing Bride. You could feel her positive vibes shine through her nervousness; with a little bit of coaching she was willing to do whatever for a great shot (including whispering silly things into her husbands ear). Barb and Ross, I feel so lucky to have been able to put this album together for you two. It was such an incredible day, full of love and laughs!
