Stephanie + Jan held their stylish mid-summer wedding at Cecil Green Park House at UBC in Vancouver. The day began with Stephanie getting ready at a hotel just steps away from where Stephanie and Jan first met. We coordinated a “first look” session with them along a long corridor of trees at the Burnaby Public Library.The ceremony was held in the evening and guests were treated to amazing live music and a beautifully decorated reception venue that was set up for a stand-up/lounge-like reception. Both the wedding cake and groom’s cake were made by family. The wedding cake was made by Stephanie’s sister and the grooms cake were made by Jan’s parents. Heart-felt speeches, dancing, and music followed throughout the evening and it was simply one of the most relaxed and stylish weddings I’ve been to in some time.
The “first look” happened where Stephanie and Jan met. Along this row of trees, Stephanie gracefully approached Jan to see him for the first time on the day of the wedding.
The beautifully elegant wedding venue decorations at Cecil Green were done by Sweet Beginnings Wedding Consulting and Event Planning.
Stephanie and Jan also had their own chocolates with custom monogrammed wrappers and the beautiful six-tier wedding cake was made by Stephanie’s sister. Simply amazing.
A true groom’s cake is something that represents the groom. This cake sure does it. It was made by Jan’s mom and each ornament represents some aspect of Jan’s childhood.

Live motown and blues music for the wedding festivities was provided by Checo Tohomaso, music director from the Vancouver VOC Soul Gospel Choir.
