A Whimsical Pink Wedding in Vancouver, British Columbia

  |   By Lisa Perri

Dennis planned his New Year’s Eve proposal to Lucy for months, buying tickets to The Festival of Lights at VanDusen Botanical Garden and booking a late romantic dinner. “Just outside the restaurant, there is a private garden area with a small little bridge. It was there that I had decided I was going to propose at midnight," says Dennis. "I was going to have the valet light up several candles and place them around the bridge to make it romantic. I made late dinner reservations so that when midnight hit, everything would be perfect. However, one thing I didn't factor in was the weather." When bad weather kept the bridge closed, Dennis had to come up with a last-minute backup plan. After they rang in the new year at the restaurant, Dennis asked Lucy to step outside on the balcony. “I thought he was crazy for insisting that we go outdoors in freezing temperatures," Lucy admits. "He finally convinced me to go on the balcony and sit near the fireplace, and that’s when he got down on one knee and popped the question!”

After Lucy said yes, the couple began planning a whimsical summer wedding filled with pink accents and personalized details. Cake toppers of their cartoon counterparts (Lucy from The Peanuts and Dennis the Menace) adorned the pink wedding cake, while their seating chart featured some of their favourite NHL hockey teams. The reception also included traditional Chinese customs, such as the dragon dance. With a “Love is Sweet” theme, of course the couple had a plentiful sweet table for their guests to devour.

After the big day, the couple jetted of to Hawaii for their honeymoon.
