I was sold as soon and Lau and Meg initially contacted me to shoot their flamingo themed UBC Botanical Garden wedding, and this was solidified when we met for drinks at The Cascade Room. I typically wear all black to weddings, but thought it was only appropriate to wear a flamingo dress to their big day. The amount of flamingo apparel at this wedding was unreal!
Lau and her Mom put together all of the florals, and her wedding dress was embellished with gold by a family friend. Their ceremony was full of gifts and blessings from their community (and lots of tears) and was unlike anything I have ever seen. Meg and Lau’s reception was complete with a taco bar, flamingo decor, giant JENGA, and golden animal wedding favours.
