Kieran and Diane were married on Sunday August 9th 2015 in front of their closest family and friends. It turned out to be a gorgeous sunny day, despite it calling for rain. I (Chantelle) have known Kieran for a number of years as he is a close friend's cousin; it was so nice being surrounded by familiar faces. Diane got ready at her friend's place in Burnaby surrounded by her bridesmaids, she was so calm and quiet which made for a relaxing morning.
We headed off to Minoru Chapel where Diane, her bridesmaids, and brides-man went into hiding as excited friends and family arrived. Minoru Chapel is the cutest white wedding chapel in Richmond surrounded by gardens and a park. Kieran was able to hold it together while wiping away a few tears as his bride walked down the aisle with her father. These two were just so happy to be getting married, they practically smiled the entire time, it was awesome to be a part of it all. Once married, the happy couple exited the church with bells ringing to a huge line of family and friends wanting to congratulate them.
We took our time in between with photos because Kieran and Diane scheduled the day in a way that made it work for them. It was so nice to be able to relax and not have to rush, they even snuck in lunch together on a park bench outside the chapel. After photos, we headed back to Burnaby to Riverway Golf Course for their reception at the Riverway Clubhouse. This venue is amazing! The huge wooden beams and floor to ceiling windows made for some beautiful photos. The reception ran so smoothly and allowed plenty of time for mingling, eating, dancing and partaking in the photo booth! We loved that the venue offered a huge private patio with lounge areas for guests to enjoy. We were even able to sneak Kieran and Diane away from the fun for a few minutes to capture some sunset shots (we just couldn't resist).
We are so thrilled to have been a part of such a special day! Congratulations Kieran and Diane and have fun in Disneyland!
