sarad & amanda: married

9 years to the day.  which is why they got married on a thursday.

i went back to our original correspondence, as it took place nearly a year ago, to remind myself what they had shared.  amanda spoke about being private and soft-spoken and the desire to create a celebration that would really reflect them and their personalities.  they wanted to plan it for their anniversary and include family and a few close friends so that it could be an informal time of eating good food and having a fun time.  when we met, there was an instant connection and as we talked, these things were reiterated and i started to get more and more excited to be a part of this beautiful moment in amanda & sarad’s journey.  now having witnessed their day, i can honestly say i believe they achieved what they set out to.

i love that they spent the morning together, everyone at sarad’s house, getting ready, eating food, sharing laughter.  it was such a sweet glimpse into the uniting not only of two hearts, but of two families.

ceremony venue: van dusen gardens / reception: tea house in stanley park / wedding coordinator: ainsley’s affairs / flowers: delovely creative / music: van django / place cards: rifle paper co / custom made cookies: anna elizabeth cakes / dress: thanh nguyen / bride’s hair & make-up: gem’s hair & make-up / second shooter: thomas sanz
