Alicia, who’s my super rad studio mate and a blogger extraordinaire, and her stud of a husband Adam, were married the Saturday before this reception, in beautiful Pemberton. For their more traditional, casual Chinese wedding reception, they chose to keep it closer to home and hosted the dinner at the Pink Pearl in East Van. Alicia, chose a stunning gown for this reception and we wandering around Strathcona for a handful of portraits before heading into the restaurant to greet family and friends. Alicia requested casual, candid portraits of the humans she loves. It was a beautiful evening of photographing a wonderful couple, good food, and toasting to all of the guests! Hands down, my favourite time at Chinese receptions!

Here are my favourite images from the evening.
