Fiona and Philip: Mayfair Lakes Wedding

Saturday, 30 June 2012

Fiona and Philip’s wedding was a huge, intricately planned affair. In fact, I have never seen a wedding planned to such detail and pulled off with such precision, yet still be a lot of fun. Well done, guys! Trust an army of helpers and friends and an incredible, 8-page schedule that moved everyone between Coquitlam, Burnaby, and Richmond. I think they should get into the planning business!

As with most Chinese weddings, there were the games and challenges at the bride’s house to prove the groom’s worthiness prior to seeing his bride-to-be, and tea ceremonies. Not to mention lots of food, red packets, relatives, and pictures!

To top it off, there was the beautiful setting at Mayfair Lakes, where they have a little peninsula by the clubhouse surrounded by lakes and greens perfect for an outdoor wedding ceremony. That was followed by a quick formal session, and on to the dinner, speeches, more games, and a dance by Philip and Fiona.
