Kas and Jen are from Toronto Ontario but came out to our beautiful home town of Victoria British Columbia for their wedding. When we met them for coffee the day before the big day to go over the shoot we had so much fun chatting we felt like we were hanging out with good friends. These two are definitely a Rock ‘n Roll couple. Kas if half of the electronic music duo Tetris Hold’em. He uses software to play music on gameboys – how cool is that! Jen designs handbags inspired by retro images, photo belt buckle, chic aprons, and much more under the name Bennie and Olive. She named her business after her Grandparents as they were the ones who taught her the skills she now uses as a designer. Jen’s gorgeous dress and coat were made by her friends and fellow Toronto designers Comrags. Her shoes are Ceylon by John Fluvog and were named after tea because the heels look like teapot spouts. Jen crocheted the guys’ bow ties which I have to say are the best bowties I have ever seen and it was so cute because Kas was so proud to be wearing it. The shot of her brother was nabbed as we left the shoot – her dad was unable to make it to the wedding but he sent his cowboy boots and hat for her brother to wear in his absence.
The garden photos and ceremony was held at Abkhazi Gardens which is now a protected property as it was originally the home and gardens of Prince and Princess Abkhazi descendants of Russian Royalty and is now a protected property managed by The Land Conservancy
These two have the best story as they both grew up on the prairies and later found themselves living in Toronto. They were flying home and Kas spotted Jen in the airport while waiting for his flight and was more than happy to find that not only was Jen on the same flight but that his seat was next to her when they boarded the plane. By the end of the flight Jen said she arrived home beaming and quite smitten. Jen told us she had never thought she would be the marrying kind until she met Kas. They are such genuine, sweet, and creative people and we are looking forward to hanging out with them when we head to Toronto this week. These two have so much love and they really brought it to the shoot which made our job so easy!! Congrats to Kas and Jen!!
