The month of November in Vancouver is as wet and chilly as it gets, but not even the cruel weather could stop Marlen and Marco from celebrating a warm and festive travel-themed wedding. They tied the knot at Our Lady of Fatima Portuguese Parish in Vancouver and we later traveled downtown for photos. Lucky for all of us, Marlen and Marco`s friends rented at room for them at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel as a gift, so we spent much of our time hanging around the new hotel taking photos indoors and by the swimming pool. We even got a tour of the honeymoon suite, which I can say had a spectacular view of the inlet. We later enjoyed a tour around town in their limo bus before heading to the Rocky Mountaineer Train Station for their wedding reception. The place was dressed to the nines, and their travel theme played out beautifully with the existing decor of the train station. Each table represented a place they had been or wished to travel to, and they also had cool travel log guest books that asked their guests for some interesting advice – “what should we name our children” – too cool! The venue was spacious and had real character. It`s one of the more unique large wedding venues in Vancouver (2200 square feet) and there was plenty of free parking for guests, even if it`s a little hidden, but I suppose that could be a good thing. Did I mention that Marlen and Marco also set up a wicked photo booth for their guests? photos can be viewed here.
