Famee Furlane Wedding | Michela + Gino


We were invited by Michela + Gino to photograph their Famee Furlane wedding last summer. It was an Italian wedding that started with getting ready at home with family and friends. One of my favourite moments that day was when Michela’s mom helped her with getting ready before leaving home for Holy Cross Parish in Burnaby, BC. It was a quintessential family moment and I was so honoured to have been there to witness it. Now that I have my own baby daughter, it often fascinates me to witness a parent helping their child on the wedding day. There’s something incredibly special about those final moments before the wedding ceremony. It’s something I know I will appreciate more and more in the year ahead. details photo of wedding ring and earringsItalian wedding dress makeup artist workingmakeup artist working makeup stylist working italian bride getting ready mom and bride getting ready Italian bride VancouverChurch weddings are special. It’s not just that it’s a religious event, nor is it just about being a cultural event. It’s special because it’s a family event. In our modern world, more and more people are having civil wedding ceremonies, so it’s special to see a young couple follow generations of family beliefs and tradition on one of the most important day of their lives. Below are just a few photos from their Italian Catholic wedding ceremony at Holy Cross Parish in Burnaby.Holy Cross Church Burnaby Holy Cross Church Burnaby ceremony Holy Cross Catholic ceremonyAfter the ceremony, we took family photos at the church before travelling to Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver for wedding party photos. It was an incredibly windy afternoon, which made for some interesting photos with Michela and her bridal veil. Bride and groom in North Vancouver North Vancouver wedding bride North Vancouver wedding bride Vancouver Italian bride Vancouver Italian groom scrabble wedding message Wedding Thank You sign Lonsdale Quay wedding Storybook wedding photosThe wedding reception was held at Famee Furlane Hall, which is located in East Vancouver and right in the heart of my old neighbourhood. I spent years of my youth in the Hastings Sunrise community (now called the East Village), and know the venue quite well. It has always been a special venue, with all the amazing family celebrations that took place there over the years, it’s an East Van cultural landmark. Knowing what a special venue Famee Furlane has been to the local community, it was such a privileged to be part of Michela and Gino’s wedding there. Below are just a few of the many photos we took that evening of their memorable wedding celebration.
