When Jamie-Lee and Justin were planning their wedding, they chose the off-season for a number of reasons. They had a winter engagement, a winter dating anniversary and felt they’d attended just about enough summer weddings.
So rather than hope for a warm summer day in Prince Rupert—the temperature rarely hits 20° C—the couple opted to embrace the depths of winter. The entire day was built around their distinctive taste.
Photographer Tyler Meers captured the ceremony and reception, along with photos of the bridal party, in a candid and historic fashion. It really embraces the couple’s hopes for the day. “We wanted a sprinkle of snow and a blue sky with mild temperatures,” says Jamie-Lee. “The morning of my wedding when I woke up, I had a text from my uncle from 1:00 a.m. ‘Jamie-Lee Burns, it’s snowing,’ and it was my dream come true.”
The museum-like quality of this wedding is in part the work of planner Phuong Delima of Event DecCor. Darling florals by Four Seasons Flowers and a sweet cake by The Copper Fox perfectly finished the reception setting at the Museum of Northern British Columbia.
It truly will be an event to go down in history. At least for Jamie-Lee and Justin.
