Heather and Mark's beautiful wedding day began in a bustling hotel room in downtown Vancouver. The women were gathered for makeup and hair, and were happy and excited as they got ready! Heather was the quintessential peaceful bride, and looked beautiful even before she put on her gown. There were some great moments between her and her Mom, and her two sisters, Eryn and Rachel - and a lovely gift of earrings from Heather's late grandmother was enough to bring them to tears!
Heather and Mark had their "first look" in a private part of Hotel Vancouver - it's always wonderful to see the reactions of couples as they see each other for the first time. Heather and Mark are completely adoring of each other, and this first look was sweet and heartwarming to watch.
The groomsmen looked great in their grey suits and purple ties, and were very stylish together with the bridesmaids, who were also dressed in shades of mauve and purple. It's always a blast being with a connected wedding party - Heather and Mark's friends all knew each other well, and this made for a creative session of continuous fun and laughter.
The Vancouver Club was the location of the ceremony, and it was decorated with florals to create a magical spot for the couples' nuptials. Their officiant, Jeff Young, did a fabulous job of the ceremony - it's always lovely to be reminded of one's own wedding vows when listening to someone else's.
Then it was onto the cocktail hour and reception at the Law Courts Inn - a wonderfully hidden gem in the midst of downtown with awesome views of cityscapes. The reception was filled with many moments of fun and entertainment - including a fabulous Michael Buble sound-a-like, and an amazing surprise flash mob!
Heather and Mark - we had a wonderful day with you and your family and friends! We wish you the very best in the future.
