On January 20th of 2013, the doors closed for the last time at the Waldorf Hotel on Hastings Street in Vancouver, and with that, the last wedding at the Waldorf Hotel. A blow to Vancouver’s growing creative community, we write with mixed emotions this post of a styling wedding in the infamous East Van cultural hub. A toast to Michael and Jackie for a venue well chosen, and to Two Peas Photography for this hipster-themed wedding that’s going to go down in history.
In the photographer’s words :
“This winter wedding was a day full of contrasts – beginnings and ends, happiness and sadness, darkness and light. From the wedding’s theme of “black and white” to these two finding each other after years and countries apart, from the day beginning in the opulence of the Fairmont Vancouver and ending in that infamously kitsch East Van haunt, it felt bittersweet celebrating a new chapter in Mike and jackie’s relationship in the dimly-lit Tiki Bar days before the final chapter of the Waldorf Hotel comes to a close.
It was a pleasure to be with Jackie and Mike on their incredible day.”
