Wedding Photography – Chelsea & Shane’s Wedding at Saxe Point Point Park, Esquimalt, BC

Wedding Photography of Chelsea & Shane’s Wedding at Saxe Point Park, Esquimalt, British Columbia by Pete Snell Photography.

Wedding Photography by Pete Snell Photography . Chelsea and Shane were married on July 26th, 2014 by Marriage Commissioner Iain Hooey at Saxe Point Park, Esquimaly on July 26th, 2014. Pete and the marriage commissioner Iain Hooey had both known Chelsea for many years and both felt privileged to have been asked to be a part of Chelsea and Shane’s wedding. As expected in was a bright and sunny day in July and a perfect day to get married outdoors with a ocean backdrop. The ocean mirrored the blue sky which is clear in the first photograph on this blog! The wedding ceremony was very upbeat, as always with Iian Hooey as the marriage commissioner. Same Point Park offers a few possible locations for ceremonies and I think this particular one would be my favourite!  After the family formals we headed over to Aylard farm, East Sooke  park for some more fun photo’s with the Bridal Party. Given the distance it was a bit of a rush to get back for the reception at the Chief and Petty Officer’s mess on the Esquimalt MilitaryBase. This was a large family gathering at a very prestigious location which I think was enjoyed by all. The food at the Chief and Petty officers mess is always outstanding and one of the best venues in Greater Victoria for a formal wedding and wedding photography. Wishing Chelsea and Shane a wonderful future together.
