Sunny and Kevin’s British Columbia Engagement Shoot

They met in 2008 when her secondary school hosted Kevin’s for a leadership conference. He was assigned to her group, which eventually led to them adding one another on Facebook. A year later both of their families went on separate vacations to Los Angeles for the summer, and they bumped into one another at LAX airport. With Sunny starting school in Vancouver in the fall, they exchanged phone numbers so they could connect once she moved.

When Sunny moved to Vancouver, she kept in touch with Kevin but they both kept busy with their schooling. Less than a year later, Sunny was on a walk in Pacific Spirit Park when she accidentally pocket dialed Kevin. He answered the phone, and they made plans to see each other over the summer. The rest is history!

Kevin proposed six years later in Seattle! A perfect opportunity arose when the couple found out that Beyonce {Sunny’s fave artist} was performing at Centurylink Field in Seattle. Kevin planned everything to the smallest detail … booking a surprise stay at a hotel, buying the concert tickets, the ring, and preparing his speech. After getting a surprise upgrade to a penthouse suite that evening, Kevin got down on one knee and proposed before they headed to the concert. Their upcoming wedding is sure to be a stunner!

Childhood camp to an engagement
After they graduated college as acquaintances, Erin and Christopher realized that they had actually attended neighboring summer camps as children. After a mutual friend posted a #tbt photo on Facebook from their camp days, Erin reached out to Christopher. He proposed four years later geographically in the location smack dab between both their childhood summer camps. Camp brought them together, and that’s where they started their lives together!

Finding the right dress
“It was a pain … so much fluff and tulle out there. I was about to go with a more expensive one which I wasn’t 100% about … and then I found mine at the store where my best friend bought her wedding dress. It was simple, elegant, had some sparkle, and showcased my figure.”

First look?
“We did not. We decided after seeing some awkward first look moments and the traditional side to my husband, we decided to see each other for the first time when I walked down the aisle.”

Of course, cake! 
“We had a cake that was for the two of us, but also had a dessert table. I love dessert and wanted to feature our favorites (mine caramel apples, his milk and cookies). Not everyone likes cake, so we wanted to provide options.”

Erin’s advice for brides-to-be

    • Don’t feel like you have to overdo it or spend a boatload! There are so many ways to cut costs, and I was very proud of staying within my budget.
    • Make sure your wedding day is about you and your soon to be husband … not your parents. Your parents already got married. It’s your day and I made sure every step of the way I spoke to my husband about it and asked his opinion.
    • If you want something your parents don’t, make it happen (my mother didn’t like that we had starfish as our table assignment holders, but I wanted them). Ultimately … I was happy I did, and it looked cute. If I hadn’t, I would have regretted that decision.
    • You are going to stress … it’s inevitable, but remember the day is to have fun. Don’t worry about little bits of drama!

Congrats to the gorgeous couple! We hope you had the time of your lives on your Tahiti honeymoon!
