When your best laid plans change and change again but all that really matters is getting married to your best friend of ten years. The pandemic has thrown a wrench into many couples’ wedding plans. Many have opted to postpone and celebrate at a later date. Some have decided to completely downsize and reimagine their wedding to celebrate their love this year. And others, like Sonya & Ilya, decided to celebrate their marriage in 2020, micro wedding style, with plans to host a bigger party next year.
Their parents’ backyard in Vancouver was the perfect setting for a micro wedding. A cozy backyard and keeping things intimate? Yes, please.
We laughed on a sun soaked rooftop in Mount Pleasant, strolled around their old stomping grounds at UBC, and set up a Zoom livestream for their ceremony thanks to Wagner & Co. They wore coordinated wedding outfits with pops of dusty rose, made popping open the champagne an Olympic sport, and most importantly, celebrated with their nearest and dearest. Here’s to these two legends staying resilient and letting their love lead the way. Looking forward to the big party next year! In the meantime, let these wedding photos keep the good vibes alive.
