Dustin & Yuko’s Wedding Photography, Saanich Peninsula, BC

On  June 28th 2014, Pete Snell Photography – ( wedding photography specialist ) had the the very great pleasure of  photographing Yuko and Dustin’s wedding in North Saanich , British Columbia at Dustin’s grandfathers farm. The farm was located very close to a spectacular beach as shown in the photographs. Dustin is a very talented carpenter and built the wedding arch himself to further personalize the ceremony with his beautiful bride Yuko. After the ceremony the guests, including Yuko’s parents and siblings who had travelled from Japan to see Yuko married celebrated with champagne and appetizers. Pete and the wedding party entered across to the beach for a really nice wedding photoshoot. This is one of the nicest beaches Pete has been at with a wedding party.  The wedding reception was held at the Saanich Fairgrounds in  Central Saanich. The reception hall ( one of two at the Fairgrounds ) is bright and the perfect size for a smaller intimate wedding. The hall was decorated with hanging paper birds which Yuko had personally cut out in the weeks / months preceding her wedding. Dustin and Yoko are both very talented and it was so nice to see the personal touches which they had added to their ” big day”. The multiple course dinner which was served was outstanding and enjoyed by all.  The first dance ( as shown below ) was performed with amazing skill  by both Dustin and Yuok and was a pleasure to watch. Pete wishes this lovely couple the very best in their futures together!
