Epic NYC Surprise Engagement Session and Waterfront Wedding in Richmond, BC

In Ideas, Inspiration, Trends, Love Stories

The great thing about Weddingful is how it helps me connect with awesome people like Chloe and Yuan.  When I first met this couple at a Vancouver coffee shop, I learned of their love for travel, and for each other.  What I didn’t know then was Yuan’s knack for surprising Chloe every chance he gets.

Shortly after we booked in their wedding, he reached out to me in private to begin his epic NYC engagement photoshoot.  After numerous emails back and forth, we had the plan in place.  I would fly to NYC a few days before them to plan and scout locations.  On the day before, he surprised her with plane tickets and on the next morning, I met up with them to begin our engagement session.  From Chelsea and Brooklyn, to Times Square and Grand Central, we pretty much covered all of NYC in one day!

Fast forward three and a half months later and we’re finally at their big day!  We started with getting ready and tea ceremony photos in the morning before yet another epic surprise.  A brand new car was waiting for Chloe right outside her door!  After a very memorable First Look, we continued with bridal party photos before the beautiful waterfront ceremony at the UBC Boathouse.  The party continued throughout the night with the couple setting it off with an energetic first dance.  We stepped outside for some end of the night photos before we ended one of my favorite weddings of 2016 thus far.  –Will Kwan Photography
