Our June Reception

When we decided to elope late last year, we knew all along that one of the most important things to us was having our two families meet and spend some time together. We decided to plan a reception during one of Vancouver’s sunnier months so that the Procters could visit and see the city in it’s best light. On June 4 we were finally able to celebrate with our parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and the next generation of kids and babies at a property over-looking the ocean in West Vancouver.

There were so many wonderful moments during the day, and we’re so grateful to have family that think we’re worth travelling across the world (or country) to see. Thanks to all who attended or sent their best wishes! We love you!

Our Elopement

P1140878We said our vows in an intimate elopement in our sunny apartment on the morning of November 28, 2015. Our short and sweet ceremony was followed by a very cold photo session at City Hall, fireside drinks in Queen Elizabeth Park, a cozy dinner with four of our closest friends, and a messy, boozy bash back in our apartment. It was a perfect day and we wouldn’t have changed a thing – except perhaps the pounding headaches we woke to the next morning.

(PS, Jess later wrote about planning an elopement for Loose Lips Magazine, and you can read the article here.)
