On a glorious spring day on Salt Spring Island, two of the most loveliest humans you will ever meet married each other in the company of their nearest and dearest at the Salty Pear.
Mariko and Cam’s story drifts in and out of time, like cherished memories that resurface through a song or a scent. As friends, their lives always shared a thread of connection: through mutual friends, birthdays one day apart, and a yet to be realized romantic love for each other. “After getting together twice as friends, the ‘what if’ part of my brain was on overdrive and wouldn’t drop it. I couldn’t focus, it was all I could think about. I had to know if she had changed the way she thought of me after all these years. Surprise surprise, she had. And after 13 years of on-and-off desire, imagining what it would be like to be in a relationship with Mari, I was blown away.”
Salt Spring Island offering up the perfect weather for your wedding day. The blank canvas of the Salty Pear all dressed up by Mariko and her impeccable design sense: blush, whites, yellows, and golden tones done right. Your best bud, Omar, by your side all day long: from a stroll along the beach to tearing it up on the dance floor. That matte forest green sheen of your BMW 3 Series Dazzling your biggest fans with your first dance under the cafe lights and to the smooth sounds of Colin Bullock. The moments you didn’t know you were waiting for, brought together through the magic of movement and song, and your incredible love for each other.
“For the first time in my life I felt the love and support of someone who loved and celebrated the same things I love about myself. I have always been a pretty happy guy… and I’ve been so much happier every day since Mari and I began our romantic relationship.”
Mariko and Cam, you delightful humans, yours is a love to inspire us all. Thank you for inviting us to be a part of your wedding on Salt Spring Island. What a dream.
