Married in month of roses June, life will be one long honeymoon
These are certainly the hopes and wishes of the friends and family of Min-Chee and Eric, as they witnessed them become husband and wife on June 29th of this year. After meeting at the University of British Columbia, their paths seemed set together: both majored in Mathematics, and both wanted to spend the rest of their lives with the other. It was truly a pleasure for me to be part of their wedding, especially since I’ve known them both for many years.
Min-Chee and Eric brought their own individuality to a day that is often full of conformity. For example, instead of a traditional ring bearer, they decided to bestow the honour on their dog Cauchy. He wore his own custom tuxedo, and totally brought the personal element to the day. The ceremony and the reception were held at the University Golf Club, and the rolling lawns and (eventual!) sunshine gave us the chance to get some gorgeous photographs. Even within their meal arrangements, Min-Chee and Eric have proven that you don’t have to follow the crowd to have a beautiful wedding. They decided that they would rather have a lunch reception than a dinner one, and so that is what they had. The orange and yellow colours that they chose were perfect for the venue, highlighting the elegance of the place without being too showy.
But for me, what made this wedding really stand out in my mind was one particular moment: a timeless moment between father and daughter that transpired when Min-Chee’s dad saw his little girl in her wedding dress for the first time. It was a moment, I think, when they both realized that this was a celebration of an ending as well as a beginning.
Min-Chee and Eric, thank you for giving us the immense pleasure to document this very special day in your life. I wish you nothing but love and happiness in the years to come!
