Vancouver Budget Wedding:

Vancouver Budget Wedding: Bingo + Bryan

Hong Kong couple Bingo and Bryan chose our beautiful city for their intimate destination wedding on January 19, 2012… so intimate, that they only had 20 guests and the entire bill came to be around $5,000. Jun Ying of Kunio Photography was one of the lucky few invited to share this special occasion at Seasons in the Park. Jun is one of my Vancity Vendors and the couple’s chosen photographer. As you can see in the photos, he really took advantage of the white setting that we rarely see in Vancouver. In Jun’s own words:

“Bingo and Brian flew back from Hong Kong to Vancouver for their marriage as well as to take two and half weeks off to take a breath from their extremely busy work life. I flew back from Taiwan early just for their marriage. We emailed each other back and forth for one month and we were all extremely excited for their magical wedding in the snow. The weather cooperated perfectly, adding a little bit of sunlight and the result is beyond words! This was my first wedding in 2012 and it started magically.

We spent a total of about 2.5 hours outside in the snow taking photos and both Bryan and Bingo were extremely enthusiastic and never showed any signs of being cold. I was wearing gloves, toque, scarf, thick jacket and used one heat pack and I was still kinda cold but I didn’t dare use the word because it would just be embarrassing! The waterfall and streams were all frozen and the scene were beyond words, I never thought Vancouver could be this beautiful with snow!”
