Tanya & Richard got married just before Rob & I did, at Dreams Palm Beach. I may have been feeling more anticipation than ever, on the same page with my bride Tanya in a whole new way… When we got to the room, their precious 3-year old Presley was sleeping. Tanya, relaxed and radiant, was sitting through finishing touches on her hair and make-up. She had a gift for Richard, which we were to deliver to the boys’ room and document it being opened – the BEST gift a bride can get… a gorgeous book of boudoir photos (thanks to our greatly talented photographer friend Candice Popik – you were there with us!) Richard savoured the pages for a long time… 🙂
These two met at a local pub in Grand Prairie, Alberta some 8 years ago. Among their guilty pleasures are junk food picnics in bed, Winners & Home Sense shopping, random massages, and good bad TV. Tanya & Richard are such a down to earth fun couple with an incredible family. Here’s how their beautiful sunset beach wedding unfolded…
And the sweet first look at the Dreams Palm Beach ‘secret’ gazebo…
I’m pretty proud of this one – check out the birdie!

Tanya & Richard were such troopers and got up at dawn for their Rock the Dress (trash-the-dress) session… This gorgeous light is so worth it!
Last but not least… Here’s why we’d rather call these sessions ‘rocking‘ than ‘trashing‘ 🙂
Tanya & Richard, we LOVED every minute spent with you. You ROCK. Sweetest congratulations!!
