You know those couples who completely win you over in less than a second? Well we feel like you’ll agree, Lily and Kenny make magic happen in that very way. It’s no wonder they chose gold as one of their beautiful weddings accent colors because these two are as solid as it gets! Let’s reminisce over their special day which was definitely one of our favorite experiences to be a part of.
History in the making began with this twosome getting ready in each of their respective Vancouver homes. Everyone recalls the old adage about the world being small but for them, it meant living right around the corner from each other. Kenny and his two groomsmen made the journey around the block to Lily’s house in record time to honor the tea ceremony tradition. Taking full advantage of their close proximity the couple circled back to Kenny’s home for the final portion of the ceremony; complete with a lucky red umbrella overhead.
Their outdoor ceremony was held at Quilchena Golf & Country Club in Richmond. In true June style Lily wed Kenny surrounded by dancing sunbeams and floral backsplashes. Though it may have been held outside of church walls Christian music was sung softly, confirming their faith as a true foundation for all the moments that lay ahead. Lily appeared through the shadows and out into the light on the arm of her father as she stepped towards her handsome groom. Camera’s clicked and tears fell, the warmth within this love story was a fairytale jazzed up with laughter, personal touches and even a hanky held by the bride indicating “something blue” was well taken care of.
The newlyweds then took their portrait session to Britannia Shipyard in Richmond; having privacy while still being surrounded by the sprawling waterfront and sweet picket fenced houses was intimate, historic excellence. Lily’s bridal gown was fitted in the shapeliest way, with just enough room at the bottom to join in the dancing after wards when they all returned to Quilchena Golf & Country Club for the reception. Kenny twirled his darling wife into the main room prior to the festivities and the whole entire room cheered. Their friends + families faces lit up all the more when they saw the highlight of the evening, a surprise dance for Lily featuring Kenny and his groomsmen. Utterly amazing as well were the poignant speeches toasting the bride and groom. Lily’s brother’s sentiments moved people to tears and so it went… these two high school teachers taught us all what true love really means! Our every thanks for sharing this emotional and unforgettable day with us!
