The only way to describe Karen and Ray's wedding is to describe them - fun, lively, with a little bit of wacky thrown in! This wedding was so much fun to photograph - a REALLY long day if we were to count the hours, but there were so many incredible events to capture along the way, we barely noticed the time skim by. Part of that was due to the awesome organization of planner, Aurora Buchanan, of Alicia Keats Weddings and Events, who ensured that everything ran smoothly throughout the day. The ceremony site was held at the Spanish Ballroom inside the gorgeous Rosewood Hotel Georgia - this was a wonderful opportunity for us to be back there since our last event earlier in the year for Google - it looked completely different this time! We always marvel at the fantastic job they did rebuilding this piece of Vancouver's heritage.
The creative session was spent in and around Yaletown - the area allows so much variety of light and backgrounds, and gave an easy walkabout for the wedding party. This particular wedding party were so crazy fun and added so much life to the day! It's so wonderful to see a whole mix of friends sharing in the bride and groom's happiness.
Karen and Ray are simply fabulous together - they have a warmth and comfort with each other that is heartwarming to see - and that feeling was transferred to every part of their day from the lively door games in the morning, to the wonderfully-choreographed first dance at the tail end of the evening. The reception at Sun Sui Wah was all about the food - the seemingly endless plates of culinary delights were enough for everyone to rave about, as well as the hilarious games, speeches and bouquet/garter tosses! All in all, a jam-packed day - which ended with a beautiful couple united - to each other, their families, and their friends. We were so honoured to be invited into their lives to capture their wedding day!
