Recent Weddings

Lindsay & Steve were finally joined in marriage on August 29 2021.

We met in September 2019 for their planned September 2020 wedding which had to be postponed.  The ceremony was held at the UBC Boathouse in Richmond on a beautiful and hot summer day under a very simple but dramatic arch next to the Fraser River.  The bride was gorgeous in a sleeveless, just below the knee, dress wedding dress and her handsome groom looked dashing in a marine blue suit.  While they had planned for a much larger guest list they still had 6 attendants, a Flower Girl and Ring Bearer.  This long delayed wedding was a joy as they took their vows as husband and wife.  Congratulations to a wonderful couple and blessings for many years of happiness!

Neil & Joni were married at breakfast!  

The couple were joined in marriage on Saturday October 12 at 10:00 a:m at Tsawwassen Springs Golf Club.  The bride came into the circle of about 25 friends and family with her daughter.  The Groom was supported by his son as his Best Man.  Afterwards, we all enjoyed brunch with mimosas.  The couple will honeymoon in Puerta Vallarta at the end of the month.

Congratulations to Neil & Joni for a long and happy married life!

Rhonda and Todd tied the knot!

On September 27th at 2:00 o’clock in the afternoon. The threat of rain abated until just after the ceremony!  They were surrounded by family and friends at The Secret Garden in Tsawwassen,  The Bride wore a lovely to the knee ivory, beaded, sleeveless dress and had a garland of fresh flowers in her hair.  Having been together since 1997, today was the day they formalized their commitment in a beautiful ceremony.  I was privileged to read a poem written by the Bride called “Love is Like an Automobile”!  Wishing Todd and Rhonda continued happiness as they continue along the road of life together.

Ghetto wedding with Kim and Jae

The “ghetto” wedding was so called as the couple said they did not want their wedding to be a huge expense for themselves or any of their guests.  They simply wanted to celebrate their love.  The ceremony for Kim and Jae was held at The Hall in East Vancouver and was a pot luck affair with lots to eat!
The couple had 250 guests and everyone was encouraged to wear fluorescent clothing.  The music for the Processional was four or five bars of the traditional “Here Comes The Bride” which after a few bars was followed by Master Blaster “Powerful”!  The Attendants (8) danced into the center just ahead of the couple.

Part of their ceremony included a Unity Candle Lighting as well as expressing their own vows and exchanging rings.  When I asked the guests, “Who blesses this marriage?” they all responded in a thunderous chorus, of “We do”!  You could feel the tremendous energy of love and support in the room.  What an amazing experience and what an honor to officiate.  Best wishes to these lovely women!

“When Jae and I decided we wanted to get married, there was only one person that came to my mind that would be perfect to conduct the ceremony.  Having known Kim for a long time, I knew that I wanted her passion and her love for all that she does. When we met with Kim and told her what our ideas were, a Big Gay Neon themed Potluck, she smiled and immediately got excited with us!

From that day on she became closely involved with our process and even told us about the Neon Pink top she had in mind to wear.  We felt like a family throughout.

We were given so many great options, most that hadn’t even crossed our minds, on how to best celebrate our love and make it significant and marking on our wedding day.  The ceremony was beautiful and fun and Kim the way you spoke at the wedding had everyone loving every moment.

Thank you so much for being a part of our special day. It meant the world to us

Kim and Jae
