Hart House wedding in Burnaby: Evelyn + Alex

I loved so many moments during Evelyn and Alex’s wedding at Hart House in Burnaby, but before I dive into the details, let me tell you about how we first met up with them!

Initially we planned a meeting with the two of them at BierCraft Bistro (if you love Belgian beers and fries, it’s awesome!). But when we arrived it turned out Evelyn wasn’t feeling the greatest, so Alex met us by himself. But to still meet both of them before their wedding, they invited us for sushi and board games at their place! It was such a fun evening, I’m hoping we’ll get to do it again sometimes. 🙂

If you ever need a personal trainer, btw, check out Evelyn’s website here! She’s truly inspiring as a smart and strong woman! (Yesss to women that lift weights!) Evelyn used to do amateur boxing at a national level! How next level is that! And absolutely awesome that she and Alex train together sometimes.

Anyways, back to the wedding festivities. 😉 My favourite moment of the day was without a doubt their beautiful first look. The two of them chose a little creek close to Hart House, which was a private hidden gem. The build-up to a first look can be quite intense, as months of planning come together in this one moment. It’s just the best!

During the rest of the couples’ portrait time, the weather behaved, however at the end of the shoot it started to pour! The plans for their outdoor wedding ceremony, were threatened and the chairs were even moved inside of the big permanent tent at Hart House. But then the rain stopped and kudos to Flowerella Events for moving all the chairs back to the lawn right before the ceremony!

Fun tidbit of information: the rooms inside of the Hart House restaurant have the option to see your guests outside, without them seeing you. In other words: as a bride you can spy on your guests when they arrive. Hilarious. 😉

The ceremony was beautiful, and Alex and Evelyn quoted a passage from Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. It was the first time I heard this and it’s just so meaningful (google it!). And at the end the wedding ceremony, they had a confetti exit with dried flowers! A great harmless alternative for nature. 🙂

After a fun-filled cocktail hour with lawn games and a reception with lots of heartfelt speeches, this group truly danced the night away!

Thanks so much for having us Evelyn and Alex!! See you for your post wedding shoot! 😉
