It's quite unbelievable that, after so many years of being in this business, we have not photographed at the Hycroft Manor until last year. But did we ever make for it! We had 4 amazing Hycroft Manor weddings last year, each one having a different vibe and style. Leena and Kiet chose us to be their photographers to capture their Chinese wedding at Hycroft Manor and Kirin Restaurant at the Starlight Casino in New Westminster for the reception. A little back story about this amazing couple : They first met at their friend's housewarming party where they found out they both loved to watch plays (Jersey Boys was in town). Their first date was to watch Jersey’s Boys. They went on 23 dates in the first month. One month from when they met, he said I love you….She said I love you too. There's no denying the chemistry these two have. It was not hard to make them laugh or get a close intimate moment, they were so incredibly easy to work with. They had a beautiful outdoor ceremony on the veranda. Kiet had tears in his eyes as Leena walked down the aisle, and it seemed he couldn't keep his eyes off her the entire time. We took photos around Hycroft, utilizing all of the chandeliers and old architecture inside and outside of the mansion. The couple really wanted some photos in Gastown as well. It started to rain a little once we got there, however we had a covered location in the area where we managed to get some really awesome photos. We arrived at Kirin Restaurant for the wedding reception, where the wedding party played a joke on Kiet in the grand entrance by switching their lego masks for a printout of Kiet's face instead. He had no clue until he arrived at the head table and saw the groomsmen with his face. It was a really fun wedding, and we are so happy we had the opportunity to work with Kiet and Leena. Thanks guys! - Lauren
