Marina & Michael were married on a very hot, sunny July day on Galiano Island, just off the west coast of B.C. Much of the day’s events took place at Bodega Ridge Resort, a very nice and rustic resort that rises up and overlooks the blue-green waters off the northwest of the island. Preparations took place at the resort as well as Marina’s family’s property nearby.

Some were not so keen on the heat.

We took a walk near Bodega Ridge before heading down to cool off at Marina’s parents’ property and then to see the rock formations at Retreat Cove.BrodieFrehlich_201507_Marina&Michael_web26BrodieFrehlich_201507_Marina&Michael_web28BrodieFrehlich_201507_Marina&Michael_web29 BrodieFrehlich_201507_Marina&Michael_web31 BrodieFrehlich_201507_Marina&Michael_web32 BrodieFrehlich_201507_Marina&Michael_web33 BrodieFrehlich_201507_Marina&Michael_web34 BrodieFrehlich_201507_Marina&Michael_web35 BrodieFrehlich_201507_Marina&Michael_web36 BrodieFrehlich_201507_Marina&Michael_web37
The reception took place back at Bodega Ridge, under cover from the sun. There were many speeches and tender moments and of course killer dance moves.

Theo & Caroline’s wedding was the first I ever photographed. For Marina & Michael’s wedding we camped nearby at Montague Park. It was very nice to spend some time with them.
