D+J met roughly 10 years ago when Jean worked with Dorothy’s cousin at the movie theatre at Richmond Centre Mall. Dorothy caught Jean’s eye while visiting her cousins work. Being the crazy, over-the-top kid Jean was, he ran up to her and asked, “Can I lick your face?!” Not knowing any better, Dor said, “uh….sure?” not thinking he would actually do it. Well he did!
From then on, Dorothy was terrified of Jean! For the next 5 years, Jean and Dorothy kept running into each other at parties and get-togethers as they had a lot of mutual friends. Jean kept pursuing Dorothy and Dorothy kept telling him NO! 4.5 years later they were engaged!
Their wedding was all in Richmond BC. It was a winter wedding which always makes for great natural lighting. We started at the Radisson hotel room where the girls had their makeup done by Jayna Marie Make-up & Hair. The ceremony was held in a beautiful church called Fraserview Church. We then got some portraits near by at the Olympic Oval for some unique architecture photos, then down by the ocean at the Steveston Fisherman’s Wharf. They used a school bus for transportation to get from spot to spot! The weather was calling for rain, but it ended up being a nice day for the entire time we were outside despite being cold. Their reception was held at the Radisson Hotel where they transformed the ballroom into something that looked like a fairy tail. Kawano Decor and Design did an awesome job on the decor. We are so grateful to have captured D+J’s amazing day! -Will
