Katherine & Ian's winter wedding was magical. The afternoon ceremony took place at the gorgeous University Women's Club at Hycroft. This old mansion was such a warm setting to gather friends and family from around the world. Katherine's family is from New Zealand and many songs, readings, and customs blended into the ceremony. Ian also proposed to Katherine in New Zealand giving her a stunning jade pendant carved in the traditional Maori style. The ceremony was given by Michele Davidson who wove together beautiful, personal vows. The talented bluegrass band was Highrise Lonesome & delicious cake and catering by Culinary Capers. As favors, Katherine's two children handpicked blackberries & blueberries from their backyard which were made into homemade jam by her mother. I treasured the way Katherine and Ian would look at each other throughout the day, totally in love & meant to find one another in Vancouver. Thank you for sharing your family and beautiful Maori customs with me!
