We feel as though we've know Joyce and Oliver for a very long time! We first met them at the Wedding Fair show back at the beginning of 2009. Since then we've had a great time capturing them through their couple session and now their big wedding day which finally arrived at the end of June. Finally, we've had an opportunity after they saw all of their images, to create a blog post for their day! Joyce and Oliver infused lots of their personality into their wedding day and it really showed. Everything from the dancing entrance with Oliver and his groomsmen, to Oliver serenading Joyce at their banquet reception was incredibly special and at times, beautifully emotional.
We started our day with them at Oliver's parents' home for a very lively tea ceremony! Joyce and Oliver looked relaxed from the moment they arrived until the end of the evening. From there, they held their ceremony at the Vancouver Chinese Alliance Church at Fraser Lands. Their ceremony fit the day - it was fun as the guys made their way dancing to the stage and then as Joyce and Oliver danced off after the ceremony. It was a great celebration of their marriage!
After the ceremony we had lots of time with Joyce and Oliver and their wedding party. Our stops including the very lovely Britannia Shipyards near Steveston Village and then the Village itself. The evening ended with their reception at the Jade Restaurant in Richmond with a very traditional banquet dinner. And again, in keeping with the spirit of their day they made sure their guests had fun throughout the evening with lots of games and some very sweet moments between them.
Here are just a few images from their wedding. Please click on the first image to see the story of their day.
Congratulations you guys! We loved having a part in your day and look forward to many more opportunities to work together with you in the future. We also owe a special thank you to Aimee Makris who assisted on this day with all of her creative talents!
