A love story that began with $2 Jager shots at the bar over twelve years ago. On the wedding day, the speeches were coming to a close and Aaron got up to speak. He told this story of how the couple met, like it was yesterday. Jasmine and Aaron were in their 3rd year of university and that night (at the bar) Aaron really wanted to start up the conversation, but how? The DJ helped him out by announcing $2 Jagers at the bar. Aaron looked at Jasmine and offered to buy her a drink. The rest is history.
How he asked:
Aaron’s office is connected to a large patio with an incredible view overlooking all of Vancouver (that perfect proposal backdrop). He had asked Jasmine to meet him at work one night and there he popped the question. She said YES! Waiting for the couple back at their apartment, were all their close family and friends to celebrate their recent engagement! He did good!
How they wed:
Jasmine and I first met over coffee at Beaucoup Bakery and I could not wait to begin coordinating this beautiful day. Her vision of exchanging vows in the same spot she said yes with long tables, globe lights above, a gorgeous west coast view on fireworks night was a wedding I could not wait to assist with! The couple not only had a cute love story but wanted to incorporate what they could from it into their big day. The ceremony was set with a lushious greenery arch with white folding chairs for all friends and family. Jasmine’s brother married the couple with a personalized ceremony filled with intimate vows and readings.
Following the ceremony, guests were invited downstairs to another patio where canapes, cocktails and The Collective You was waiting. While guests enjoyed cocktail hour, my team along with vendors, flipped the ceremony space into a u-shaped long table reception. The tables were draped with white linens, rose gold votives, bud vases with delicate florals and single Italian Ruscus stems on the individual napkins. Guests enjoyed a family style meal and love filled speeches. Just as the fireworks began, the couple shared their first dance with everyone circled around them. It was one of those magical moments and the love they have for each other was more evident than ever.
Wishing this couple a lifetime of happiness!
