We love mini destination weddings! Being able to spend the weekend at Bodega Ridge on Galiano Island with all your friends and family – how amazing does that sound?! We absolutely love this venue. It has the most beautiful view from their ceremony spot, their little cabin for dinner and dancing is so cozy, and there are so many places on site for photos! Bodega Ridge gets two thumbs up from us! The ceremony spot at Bodega Ridge is one of our absolute favourites. Situated at the top of a small ridge (get it?!), you just can’t beat the amazing view of the ocean. It’s the perfect spot to feel like you’re on top of the world while you marry your love!  And can we talk about Lauren and Mitchell’s florals? Gossip Florals did an absolutely amazing job bringing their vision to life. From the ceremony, to the bouquets and the reception area – we were in love! Once it was official we popped back to the cabins and forest area to make sure we got some beautiful portraits of these two. The great thing about Bodega Ridge weddings is that you really don’t need to go off site for portraits if you don’t want to or don’t have time. The adorable cabins, beautiful field, and lush forest are great portrait locations!  Just before the sun went down we popped back up to the ceremony spot with these two to create a few sunset photos with them. We were in photography heaven! These two danced the night away surrounded by their most important people – and sparklers!
