When Candace and Wayne got married last month, they brought a little bit of Calgary to Vancouver! We loved Candace's cowgirl boots, showing just enough under her dress to give a glimpse of her home town. And Wayne's oh-so-casual Chucks - also worn by the groomsmen - added an element of fun amid the elegance and grandeur of the Terminal City Club. This was the setting for both the ceremony and the reception, and for out of town guests, a great location for their Vancouver experience. We first heard about Candace and Wayne through a past couple (thanks so much, Wendy and John!) - we really appreciate it when couples pass along our names to their friends because we can reconnect at THEIR wedding - so fun! The whole day was filled with a lot of emotion (some of our favourite moments!), and we loved the addition of some cultural elements, such as the Vietnamese tea ceremony and dress - so touching. Much of the day's coordination was due to the expertise of Briar and her team at Epic Events, who helped to pull off everything off without a snag! It was also wonderful to work with Raff and Wesley, of Rach & Raff Custom Films - talented filmmakers who give so much heart to everything they create and whom we have grown to love!
One of our favourite parts of the day was the creative session, when the couple and their wedding party had loads of fun around the central city. We stuck to the areas around Terminal City, and some of the really fun stuff happened throughout Gastown (many thanks to Rogue as well)! The wedding party was a huge amount of fun to be with, and really kept everyone's energy up (we loved that Wayne broke with tradition and had a groomsmaid on his side!).
At the end of the day, there was a gorgeous reception, wonderful food, and a lot of happy guests! A special thank you to our friend and colleague Brendon from Brendon Purdy Photography who was our second photographer for the wedding day and Katerina Stavrakis who also assisted us.
