Stanley and Jen’s Wedding Day
It's funny how sometime time repeats itself. It was only 6 years ago when my wife and I were married in Burnaby Alliance Church and had our reception at Westwood Plateau golf course. I was pretty stoked to get to document Stanley and Jen's wedding but even more so when I realized they'd be getting married in the same places we did! In some ways, I got to re-live the experience of my own wedding day through them.
What made Stanley and Jen's wedding a unique experience was their dedication to God and to each other. Early on, while I was photographing their Engagement Session, they made it clear to me that they had not kissed prior to their wedding day. I found that prayer was a fundamental and strong part of their wedding day and it was evident that they both wanted to glorify God through their union. It was a privilege to document their first kiss, which would take place on their wedding day! This was soon followed by a tea ceremony at Westwood Plateau with family and friends around to witness this Chinese cultural event and a reception dinner that followed.
The day ended with Jen surprising Stanley (and the rest of us) with a solo song performance, which led to their first dance and then everyone joining them on the dance floor and busting out some crazy moves.
