These are two of the sweetest humans I’ve ever met. Our original plan included a beach ceremony, but some drizzly weather made us decide on a more colourful backdrop – so I met them at their VRBO in Port Albion. The first thing they did was try to feed me – successfully. Then we went into the rain forest for some photos before Julie’s arrival for the ceremony.
This day was a blast. Lucy climbed through the rainforest in high heels without missing a stride – she blew my mind in that moment.
I was so impressed by how happy and laid back these two were. It’s always kind of the ideal – people elope to Ucluelet specifically for that reason – but so often there are unknowns that inadvertently cause stress. For some, the appearance of rain could have caused a serious hurdle in the day, but Gene and Lucy rolled with it like nothing else. They also planned the whole thing themselves – which is a feat from far away. And it went perfectly.
