Mike and Yan’s wedding is the kind that reminds me why I love my job. It was classy, stylish, and most preciously, authentic. Mike and Yan had already hosted a wedding in Hong Kong, and as you can imagine how stressful it can get planning two weddings, the couple was effortlessly genuine in displaying love for each other and to their family and friends.

We started the day by getting ready at the Westin Harbour Castle, where Mike got his first look of his bride. We then transitioned to the beautiful Evergreen Brickworks for some nice greenery scenes spiced with a bit of rustic vibe. Ceremony was hosted at the stylish and intimate Arta Gallery in the Distillery District. The bridal party spread lovely flower petals down the isle, which added a wonderful whimsical feeling to the space. I couldn’t help feeling moved by Mike and Yan’s love story (which spans over 10 years) and by their tears of joy.

Finally we move on reception at the elegant Archeo restaurant in the Distillery District, another venue consistent with the intimate and authentic vibe of this wedding. I have to say the hor d’oeuvres at Archeo were simply works of art and pleasure for the tastebud, but there was no time for me to enjoy these as I snuck the couple out during a break to snap some lovely shots around the Distillery. As the dinner speeches rolled around, I got to see more about Mike and Yan’s story and was quite inspired by their determination and commitment to their life together. This is always one of my favorite moments on a shoot, learning from and being inspired by couples from all walks of life and their love stories.

It was a pleasure working with you at Yan and Michael’s wedding. You have captured some wonderful memories for the the couple to enjoy and relive over the years.

It was wonderful to work with you Eric, and we look forward to doing it again in the near future.
