13 Aug Anca and Elis’ wedding at Northview Golf & Country Club, Surrey
Anca and Elis. We still can’t get over how good these two knew to party with their guests. And they had all the more reason. Over the past two years they got married three times in a row so they could celebrate it with all their family and friends who live across the world. Starting with a simple “I do” in Vancouver City Hall 2 years ago they followed it with a second wedding a year ago in Romania, Anca’s country of origin. But the best was kept for last: a spectacular wedding day in Vancouver with their closest family and friends most of who flew in from Europe.
The day was filled with candid moments: Elis’ got shaved by his cousins according to Albanian tradition (and they did one hell of a good job at it too), while Anca was enjoying herself with her 9 (!) bridesmaids. Which reminds me of what an incredibly graceful bride Anca was. Absolutely stunning!
We had a blast with the bridal party at Westminster Pier Park and the downtown area before heading over to the Holy Trinity Romanian church in New Westminster. Right after the church ceremony Anca and Elis had us sneak away with them to go hang a love lock at the Westminster Pier. How could we refuse, we’re suckers for such spontaneous moments.
The night ended at Northview Golf & Country Club with a party to remember on the beats of both Latin dances as well as traditional Romanian and Albanian music. All night long we couldn’t help thinking that Europeans do know how to throw a good party!
Anca and Elis, thank you SO MUCH for having us! It was amazing to be a part of your day!
