After six years together, Sarah and Henri tied the knot this past July at the elegant Rosewood Hotel Georgia in downtown Vancouver.
“It hasn’t been a smooth journey for us,” admits Sarah, “so to have us married in the beautiful Hotel Georgia was truly a dream come true.”
The couple’s big day was made even more special by having so many family and friends join them from overseas — from as far as Indonesia and Singapore. Sarah and Henri were also fortunate to have other friends and family members in Vancouver who were able to help out in a number of ways.
As for the wedding itself — a classic ballroom wedding inspired by Sarah’s favourite lilac flower — the bride says she couldn’t have asked for better venue or better vendors. “All the details came together perfectly and I remember, on the day itself, going ‘wow’ over the flowers, the table setting, the favours, the food, the cake — all of it.”
While the couple didn’t hire a wedding planner, Sarah says her day-of-coordinator made sure everything ran smoothly, allowing her to just enjoy the day.
“We felt a lot of love and feel so blessed to be surrounded by people who love us.”
