Rachelle and Jack were some of our favourite people we got to hang out with and photograph in 2014. Their beautiful ceremony at the St. Augustine Parish and their Pinnacle at the Pier reception in North Vancouver was one of our favourite weddings of the season.
They met back in 2000 when they found out they had a lot of mutual fiends after chatting on ICQ – remember that! The day they met in person was August 16th, and that’s the date they chose to get married. Awesome!
It was 12 years later that Jack decided to pop the question. With their friends in on the plan, he rented a community centre where he filled the WHOLE place with candles and flowers and had a little video he prepared for Rachelle. Once he was down on one knee proposing, all their friends came out from their hiding spot in the room next door! What a great way to share that experience with everyone!
Rachelle and Jack seemed super shy at first, but when they were with their 16 person wedding party consisting of their closest friends and family, their personalities shone! We were pleasantly surprised when they decided to run down the aisle after being pronounced “husband and wife”, with permission from the priest of course, and we were all over their reception entrance karaoke performance! These two and their posse put on a show for their guests!
Congratulations, Rachelle and Jack
