Many wedding plans for this summer have been spoiled by COVID-19. We're getting close to fully-booked for 2021, but have plenty of dates available this coming winter! Check this out by a photographer from BC ...
"Cheryl and Dale’s wedding was the perfect way to learn to love (okay, maybe like) winter. The grounds at the Alton Mill Art Centre are gorgeous in the winter so I was thrilled that Cheryl and Dale wanted to do all their photos outside even though it was about -10 C on the day! Cheryl was even brave enough to go skating and play a little hockey while still wearing her wedding gown"
