From the Photographer:
This is one of the most rustic wedding venue locations in British Columbia. Rockwater Secret Cove Resort is a waterfront resort located on the Sunshine Coast. It’s right on the ocean, with massive rock cliffs, forest and rocky beaches. They have cabins, a hotel and tenthouses raised high up in the trees overlooking the ocean (kind of like an ewok village).

Andrea loved the location and had to have her wedding there. Andrea and Tyler wanted to have a DIY wedding, so Andrea and her family made all of the amazing details throughout the entire venue, from the centrepieces, all of the signs throughout the venue, and the lawn games during the cocktail hour. The couple got married on a dock on a windy day. Will (photographer), photographed the entire ceremony in a row boat, where Tyler’s brother-in-law rowed him around the dock getting amazing angles of the event. Meanwhile, the other photographer, Lauren, was on the mainland capturing everything from the opposite angle.

They had lawn games during the cocktail hour, and the couple made smores instead of a cake cutting, to give the wedding a very intimate and rustic feel.

From the Bride:
We’ve had mutual friends since grade twelve (2004), but went to different high schools and didn’t connect until long after we each returned from university and got jobs (2011). I had never been sailing, but on our first date Tyler took me dingy sailing in the cold ocean in May. It was very windy and we likely should not have gone. We capsized twice and eventually got towed into the beach when the sail disconnected. For some reason, I still agreed to a second date 🙂 Since then, I learned how to sail (not well but I am officially a certified skipper and keeps saying yes to sailing adventures) and Tyler’s taken up sailboat racing.
For our honeymoon, we are chartering a sailboat in the Ionion Islands of Greece for a week. Rockwater is very special place for us.
