Kelowna Wedding Photography // Lindsay & Robbie

September 8, 2010

The best time to learn something non-photography related while photographing a wedding seems to be during the speeches.

Inevitably, somebody will say something that will stick in your mind and you wake up the next day thinking about that new tidbit of useful knowledge.

At Robbie and Lindsay’s Quails Gate Winery wedding, there were two useful nuggets of knowledge that we picked up on.

The first was about the Seven-Year Rule of Relationships. As a friend of Robbie pointed out, when you’re in a long-term relationship, you’re eventually given two options as you close in on the seven-year mark.

Option one: You have kids. Option two: You get married.

Robbie went with option two.

The second lesson was from given by one of Lindsay’s bridesmaids, and we felt it rang the truest out of any speech we’ve heard at a wedding.

She spoke about deep-rooted friendships, and the evolution that happens as people’s lives transform into adulthood. She said that the truest friendships, as was the case with her and Lindsay, will change over time, but will never be different.

When we were photographing this wedding and as we went through the pictures afterwards, it seemed very apparent that Robbie and Lindsay have always been the kind of people you want around you in your life. That solid character is something that will never change.

The only thing in their lives now is what’s different. What’s different now is two strong individuals have come together and will undoubtedly have a hell of a successful life together.

And all of this happened within seven years.
