Camp Fircom on Gambier Island was the perfect wedding location for Ben and Olive’s September celebration.
When Ben and Olive met, Ben was living in Seattle and Olive lived in Vancouver. If their goal was to join both of their families and communities together, this location provided a very intimate place to connect and celebrate their relationship.
During their ceremony, Olive described Ben as one of the nicest people she’s ever met. And it’s true, he just can’t stop smiling! Meanwhile, Ben described Olive’s desire to create a better world. And it’s apparent in all of the work she does.
The ceremony took place outdoors on the lawn of the campground surrounded by tiny houses where the guests slept in bunks with a view of the ocean and mountains. We were blessed with food and drink in an intimate hall and then moved back outside for the dancing.
Ben and Olive walked down the isle to all of the guests singing the Beatles ‘All You Need Is Love.’
“All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love, is all you need.”
