Wedding Photography – Amie & Sam at the Beach House Restaurant, Victoria,. BC.

 Wedding Photography for Amie and Sam at their Beach House Restaurant Destination Wedding.

Wedding Photography.  Amie and Sam were married on August 14th, 2014 at The Beach House Restaurant, Cordova Bay, British Columbia. Wedding Photography was by Pete Snell Photography an experienced local wedding photographer from Victoria. Amie and Sam both from the USA came to Victoria to join friends and family for their traditional jewish wedding. Although Amie was originally from Victoria this would be considered by Sam to be a destination wedding. This was Pete’s first time photographing a jewish wedding and he found it an enriching experience; everyone had so much fun from the beginning to the end on this sunny, warm day beside the sea on the grounds of The Beach House restaurant. The wedding register was signed in hebrew prior to the actual ceremony. After the ceremony the couple went into a private room and had a few minutes private time before rejoining the guests for lots of dancing and of course they were both hoisted up onto chairs and carried around the reception room with so much energy.  The Beach House was the perfect place for a smaller wedding like this. The ocean view with the long sand beach are outstanding. As usual the dinner at The Beach House was also outstanding and the staff are fantastic. I don’t think anyone who attended Amie and Sam’s wedding would have trouble recommending this establishment for a best friends wedding! Pete has shot five weddings to date at The Beach House and feels it’s about as good as it can get for wedding photography, especially later in the day when the sun sets. I wish Amie and Sam the very best in their future lives together.
