Professional Photographers Victoria | Trina & Mike | Starling Lane & CFB Ward Room Wedding
Trina and Mike initially met like 99% of our couples (no lie!), when Trina subbed on a co-worker’s floor hockey team. Neither of them thought much of it at the time, until two months later at that co-worker’s birthday party when they got chatting and hit it off. Their easygoing and fun loving personalities are a perfect match for each other, whether it’s sharing walks with their dog Stella, or day drinking together (or both at the same time!), or engaging in a slightly competitive board game night.
On Trina’s birthday in 2018, Mike had booked a weekend getaway at a local resort. That Saturday afternoon they took a walk at Spectacle Lake where on a little knoll overlooking the lake Mike got down on one knee, then said some very beautiful words that neither of them can remember as we were both too excited. A resounding “Yes!” was one of the easiest answers Trina has ever had to give.
We celebrated their wedding day with 100 or so of their closest family and friends, at the lush Starling Lane Vineyards in Saanich. The sun peeked through the clouds during their intimate outdoor ceremony while Stella excitedly looked on from the front row, and a toast and lawn games followed with their guests. We snuck them away for a few bride and groom portraits before departing for Macauley Point for their wedding party photos. In true Trina and Mike fashion, we captured them doing some day drinking with their wedding party on the beach. Their reception followed at the CFB boardroom with dinner, toasts and their first dance overlooking the pacific and the setting sun. It was a day for the books, and we couldn’t be happier and more grateful to have been trusted in capturing their special day.
Congratulations to Trina, Mike and Stella on their futures together! Here’s a peek at their day!
