KLARA CHEN & NICOLAS LO
AUGUST 2, 2015
FROM KLARA: We chose to have the ceremony and reception at Reflections at Hotel Georgia. We had a difficult time picking a venue initially because I had always envisioned an outdoor wedding, but with Vancouver’s unpredictable weather we needed a contingency plan. We went to a few venue meetings before we picked Reflections. We loved the laid-back yet glamorous vibe. Also, they had an indoor and outdoor space. Our wedding vision was to have guests walk around and mingle while enjoying some of our favourite foods from places we’ve visited around the world—we didn’t even have assigned seating. Each dish we served told a particular story about our travels. The best moment of the day was when Bryan, one of the groomsmen, sang our first-dance song. The guy went all out—he even booked studio time to practise. He sang Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” which embodied everything we saw in our future. A favourite detail was the cake by Anna Elizabeth, who was amazing to work with. Inspired by Milk Bar’s cereal milk ice cream, one of Nick’s favourite flavours, Anna executed a similar flavour with the right amount of malty, crunchy goodness.
