We had good intentions of keeping up our blog posts while we were away in Australia, but basking in the sun and playing in the water proved to be too distracting! Now that we are back to good ol’ Vancouver, we are pumped to be sharing with you today Erika and Chuck’s (Cherika’s) New Year’s Eve wedding! Typically by the end of the year, we’re pooped, we’re bagged, and we’re ready to hibernate. But Erika and Chucks wedding kept us on our toes to the very end of 2013, quite literally!
As Erika and Chuck are really laid back and down to earth people, so it was no surprise to us that their entire wedding day was stress-free. Chuck and his wedding party posse played Battle Shots as they got ready in the morning while Erika and her ladies sipped on champagne as they prepared for the day ahead.
After Chuck and his gang made their way to the Granville Island Hotel in style via the sky train and sea bus for the first look, we navigated our way through the alleyways and nooks and crannies of Granville Island for photos. We ended up at the Granville Island Brewery for refreshing beer before heading off to the wonderful Bridges Restaurant for the ceremony and reception.
Erika and Chuck had a beautiful ceremony in front of the large floor to ceiling windows showing off Vancouver’s downtown. The intimate setting with the friends and family gathered around in the low lighting ambient was so perfect for them. The rest of the evening was a very relaxed and tranquil one, until it started getting closer to the countdown Before the new year snuck up on us, we stole the newlyweds for a few chilly photos outside with the fun lights hanging up around the area.
We had an amazing time with Cherika, whom we are happy to call our friends, celebrating their nuptials and joining in their festivities for the new year. Thank you guys, and we look forward to a round of Battle Shots in the near future!!
Please enjoy many more photos in the slideshow at the end of the post! Cheers xox K&D!!
