In the Mountains

I am a mountain's girl.

Raised in BC, it's really, honestly, hard not to be. Every opportunity to be outside is like a breath of fresh air in every way - in my physical life, mental life, business life, and my personal well being life. Lately I have been inspired by mountain range weddings: from Benj Haisch's recent elopement, to Tomasz's same day edit on the top of a rocky distant surface - I'm absolutely obsessed with anything adventure like.

As much as I am a city girl, it feels great to get outside into the forrest - have you today?

IN THE ISSUE: Danica & Bryden are Married!

There are many things that occupy our time leading up to the next issue of The Refinery Magazine. We spend hours upon hours scoping out the next great vendor, the most appealing weddings and engagements and most importantly we focus all of our findings on "Will our readers love this?". 

When we first stumbled upon Brittany Mahood Photography's blog, with thanks to Megan Hildebrant, we couldn't help but love her attention to detail, soft romantic approach to photography, and her ease at meeting and shooting some effortlessly stunning couples - both inside and out.

We were thrilled to feature Danica & Bryden's wedding in the last issue of The Refinery Magazine, and hope you will head over and take a read through what this adorable couple have to say about weddings, love and marriage!

Olivia & Patrick are Engaged!

There is a neighbourhood in Vancouver (for those of you who don't know our neck of the woods), called Gastown. Filled with new life, overflowing with creatives, brimming with enthusiasm, it's hard not to love the cobblestoned old streets of Gassy Jack's town. It's only a hop, skip and a jump away from the downtown core of Vancouver, however you seem instantly transported back to old town Vancouver, as many of the original buildings and fixtures still remain.

One of the residential buildings in Gastown is home to many creatives, including Dufresne Photo/Design. Headed up by Joel, he is capturing couples like Olivia & Patrick in their natural habitat - the uber trendy, welcoming and stylish gastown district. We love this couples clear example if love, caring nature and playfulness that so many Vancouver couples share. It's no wonder we are proud to call Vancity home!

Take a look, and then head over to Joel's website to see more!
