it was the very last semester of karen & spencer’s undergraduate degrees at UBC. spencer was completing an english literature degree and karen was an english/history major herself. after four years at the university, these two finally shared a class — two of them, in fact! one day, karen sat down and joined a conversation, introducing herself to a boy named spencer and the friend beside him. karen & spencer sat together in each of their classes from then on… and a month later, spencer told karen he wants to be more than friends. it was their first date on valentine’s day 2004 that started it all! ;)

matthew & marlena are getting married in three short weeks at the beautiful milner chapel, with a reception at the fort langley golf course. their wedding day will be only for close friends and family, fifty guests total, and they are hoping to plan a “elegant, romantic, quaint” wedding. love that! on matthew’s initial email inquiry to me back in november, he wrote in the “tell me more!” section: marlena & i worked together for three years straight and never said a word to each other. hahah! well, i’m glad they started talking and i’m glad they started dating. ;) looking forward to a wonderful wedding day with these two shortly!

after high school, peter studied at the university of emily carr and through his classes, became friends with a girl named jeanette. jeanette & peter found out they went to the same church, but peter attended the korean service and jeanette [and her family] attended the english service. one morning, eight years ago, peter came to the english service and was there introduced to christine, jeanette’s beautiful sister. it wasn’t love at first sight — it wasn’t even friends at first sight!

good morning! happy thursday! happy thursday because in a few hours i’ll be flying to sunny phoenix, arizona for a five-day family vacation with my parents and these two. also happy thursday, because i am blogging a gorgeous styled shoot today, compliments of jaclyn at 6pence wedding & event design. last october, jaclyn organized a shoot called “rustic elegance.” this spring, her vision was classic country but with city approval. jaclyn achieved exactly that. thank you for all the vendors involved, as well as our two models… who by the way, aren’t together in real life. ;)
