We had a wonderful day kicking off the new year on January 2nd, with Ashley and Eric's wedding. It was a gorgeous and cold Vancouver winter day without any snow and lots of beautiful sun! And it was a remarkable backdrop to the full day of events from the ceremony at Hycroft in the morning, to Ashley and Eric's beautiful wedding reception at Westwood Plateau. Despite the cold, Ashley and Eric and their entire wedding party had fun throughout the day, and made the most of the beautiful winter sun! Our day began with an early morning start at Ashley Mom's home, with lots of movement throughout the house - always a fun environment to be in! From there, both Ashley and her bridesmaids and Eric and his groomsmen arrived separately at the historic and always lovely Hycroft Mansion in Vancouver. Their wedding ceremony was beautiful, lively and memorable with Brent Sheppard conducting it!
Following the ceremony and some big, fun group images, we made the most of the ambience at Hycroft to capture Ashley and Eric and their wedding party against the lovely backdrop. They were a joy to capture - so connected, loving and sweet together. And we think it shows in the images!
From there, (and after a brief stop on a very busy Granville Island), we made our way to their reception location, Westwood Plateau. The first event was a traditional tea ceremony with both sides of the family, followed quickly by a grand entrance and cake cutting in the large ballroom. And then it was on to the evening! An impressive aspect of their day was the fully vegetarian buffet that Westwood Plateau created - it was unlike anything we've seen before with an amazing variety of food.
Here's a short story of their wonderful day. Please click on the first image to see the highlights of their wedding day.
Congratulations Ashley and Eric! Your wedding was wonderful from start to finish, and it was so clear that you'd put so much of yourselves into creating your day!
Thank you Aimee for contributing all of your creative talent as part of the team on this day! And we also want to recognize RF Productions, who were not only a blast to work with as the official cinematographers on this day, but so professional throughout! And what more can we say about Hycroft - what a jewel in the heart of Vancouver!!
