This simple yet elegant wedding at UBC Boathouse was filled with both laughter and joyful tears. A classic VNP Couple, they are family-oriented and surrounded by friends who love them so much they came from all parts of the world to celebrate their beautiful matrimony.
The day started as a quiet morning at the bride’s house, the intimate time between Amy and her girlfriends getting ready for this special day. This quiet anticipation turned into a laughter-full time of door games as the groom and his groomsmen tried to pass the challenges the bridesmaids prepared for them. From waxing of leg hair to drinking a suspiciously gross cup of beverage, Navid finally got to–almost–see his soon-to-be wife. To increase the anticipation, Navid and Amy only got to stand back to back in their yard, and exchange a few words, before they were off to the beautiful waterside at the UBC Boathouse for their First Look.
Even though it was a cold winter day, we were blessed with beautiful skies and calm waters. We loved how it was so tranquil at this venue. It was perfect for their First Look. When Navid saw Amy, he was overjoyed at how stunning his bride looked.
The ceremony itself was nothing short of emotional. The bridesmaids were already tearing up before Amy walked down the aisle. After many years of dating, Navid tied the knot with the girl of his dreams, witnessed by their families and a huge group of “Nakama”, a Japanese word to describe friends so close they are pretty much family and a word that Navid used himself.
Amy and Navid, from the very bottom of my heart, thank you so much for having me be a part of this happy, wonderful day. I love you guys and pray that you two will never stop expressing your love to each other. I pray that you two will grow old together and still be the same cute pair of lovebirds. It has been my absolute pleasure and honor to document this beautiful time of your lives. And let me know whenever you come back to Vancouver, we need to hang out!
Your friend, Vivian
Their wonderful friends, braving the cold. Such troopers!
Always love a good, loud, and enthusiastic cheer from the wedding party!
So sweet that Navid walked Amy out with an embrace!
Can’t end the night without a picture with these two amazing humans!
