Tessa & Brad :: Parkside Hotel

I absolutely love this time of year, looking through all the past season’s work and reliving all the beauty… Today I’m gushing over this bride’s beautiful Truvelle dress and the soft, modern, west coast vibes throughout the whole wedding. Tessa was one of the first brides who reached out to me for the 2016 season and is definitely one of the sweetest I’ve ever met.      Travelling from Alberta to the bride’s hometown here in Victoria – Tessa & Brad decided to host a beautiful intimate wedding with their closest family & friends.
