About the Wedding
From the Photographer, Clint Bargen
“‘…She is simultaneously what I need and what I want.’ -Jared, our groom.
Allysa and Jared, the quintessential modern couple, understand the importance of balance. When they talk about each other, they mingle the spiritual along with the quirky, the adorable along with the sincere.
‘Jared is the best person I know, and it amazes me every day that I get to love him.’ -Allysa, our bride.
This sense of balance shone through on the day of their wedding in an old-hollywood-meets-contemporary-chic event. It was classic old hollywood in its timeless qualities–the classic color palette and romantic flair. Allysa, in her soft curls and sweet lace, was our Grace Kelly, and Jared, with his debonair charm, our James Dean. The contemporary details, however, made this event accessible and completely of the moment.
‘[Jared] points me to Christ and reminds me who I am.’ -Alyssa.
The day began in cozy spaces with close family and friends, setting the tone for a delightful event unique to Allysa and Jared’s candid love. The lush Deer Lake Park in Burnaby, British Columbia was the location for the first look between these two dashing lovers and for the formal photos with their handsome party, clad in navy blue, cheeky smiles, and old hollywood glamour. Westminster Bible Chapel set the scene for their vows; and 100 Braid St. Studios brought the day into perfect harmony with its innovative setting and fresh look set off by white and gold accents and twinkling lights–truly honing in on what a modern setting can offer a trendsetting wedding such as this.
‘Not only does she love God, but she is quirky and goofy like me.’ -Jared.
Working with Allysa and Jared on their wedding day was a delight as a photographer. The give and take of this couple came through on every level. It was a day where everything truly came together, from the smallest details to the greatest. Their wedding day was the perfect state of equilibrium, where the couple could enjoy their day with open hearts and full smiles, and I was just the guy lucky enough to capture it on camera.”
