Wedding Planning by Aurora Buchanan
Wedding Photography by Denise Lin
When I first met Lisa and Chris they knew what they wanted: Fireworks. They had many fond memories of going to the fireworks together in Vancouver and wanted to incorporate that into their wedding. We spent a lot of time exploring different ways to make this wish happen for them and the end result was an incredible wedding with a front row seat to the Celebration of Light fireworks display from a yacht in the middle of English Bay.
Lisa got ready at her parent’s home in Olympic Village, Rikki from Jayna Marie did her makeup and hair. The couple was married in a beautiful ceremony at Our Lady of Sorrows Parish. Gospel singers quietly sang Lisa down the aisle and burst into song for the recessional. After the ceremony, guests headed down to the water to board a yacht for the reception. The sun was sparkling off the water as the boat cruised around the Vancouver area offering amazing mountain and city views for the guests as they sipped their cocktails. The tables were adorned with silver and gold vases filled with candles. With soft pink and rich purple floral accents Garden Party Florists. After a delicious meal and some amazing cake from Sweet Thea it was time for the fireworks!!
With love, Aurora
