Cecil Green Wedding // Lisa & Adam

August 20, 2010

Lisa and Adam’s wedding was at Cecil Green Park, located near the University of British Columbia. The reason Cecil Green was selected is because both Lisa and Adam are lawyers who studied at UBC, so there is an obvious sentimental connection to this beautiful Vancouver campus.

So what can we tell you about this wedding?

Well as you probably noticed, there were details galore, many of which had a strong connection to Lisa’s Chinese culture. From the abundant use of the lucky number “8” to the Dragon Dance at the reception, there was a meticulous attention to detail when it came to incorporating Chinese intricacies into the wedding.

The flow of the day was interesting as well. After preparations we were off to Stanley Park to do some portraits. We mozied our way from there to the UBC campus, where we did a few more pictures in front of the building Lisa had studied in. After that, it was a family effort in preparing the venue and the ceremony began.

But what we will remember is the care and consideration that Adam and Lisa invested into their wedding (they selected a book for each guest as a gift, for example). They are a two people with awesome character, and we feel very fortunate to have met them and photographed their wedding.

    I really like that you throw unique poses into the loop for every individual wedding - for example I love the shot of mom sitting on her own in the rows of seats, the couple playing patty cake, the couples reflection in the mud puddle, or the girl sipping the glass as she looks on - very good boys!
