Elaine and Hason met for the first time in August of 2012. Elaine had moved from Vancouver to Hong Kong only the year before, and was getting connected in a church locally. A group of friends were doing a day trip on the ferry to Macau, and invited Elaine along. When she arrived, another friend introduced her to Hason. Within minutes, she forgot how to pronounce his unique name, and not wanting to mess it up, didn’t speak much with him that day. Haha!
Following that day, the pair became friends on Facebook, but didn’t see one another for a couple of months. After another group hangout, Hason and Elaine exchanged numbers, for convenience’s sake, so they could plan a group thing with friends! They both started messaging on WhatsApp super regularly, which over time morphed into a great friendship and soon, a relationship. This August, they’ll be marrying one another on the five anniversary of the first day they met! (I love that.)
P.S. This pair also heard about my work from one of my beautiful and wonderful past couples, Rebecca and Kenneth – referral superstars! Thank you, guys!
This photo is too good. Sometimes I make my couples do ridiculous things and then laughter like this comes out. It’s good to laugh.
We had sunshine and pretty skies for our photos in Stanley Park. A quick drive to Gastown later, and it started to pour. Gah! We were prepared with clear umbrellas (always!) – but it definitely put a damper on things. Elaine and Hason had great attitudes and went with the flow as we made a new plan.
They look pretty chic in the rain, regardless…
Thank you so much, Elaine and Hason! I look forward to seeing you both this summer!
