You wouldn’t know it by the brilliant smiles and unbridled joy forever recorded on Super 8mm film at the Polygon Gallery in North Vancouver, but Emma and Yianni were one of many couples who had to pivot and pivot some more due to the pandemic. Thankfully, they had the immense support of their wedding planner, Margaux of Filosophi Events, who worked tirelessly to bring the party to life while rounding up the best of the best in B.C. Here’s how you live it up, in spite of it all, because at the end of the day you get to celebrate with the best humans:
One of the busiest summer days on the North Shore to add to the excitement and beautiful chaos that would be happening at the Polygon Gallery that evening. Getting glammed up with the ladies and gents, including your babe in your First Look, and capturing these moments with her on real analog Super 8mm film (say it again for the ones in the back: analog Super 8mm film!). Tulle capes, friendly paparazzi, and champagne vibes all day, every day. Boardwalk strolling and camera kissing and spiralling into the venue. Filling the room with the warmth and laughter of friends and family who have all been anxiously but patiently waiting for these moments to arrive. Making your own rules and starting brand new alongside delicious cuts of Super 8mm film (just the way we like it).
Being a part of Emma and Yianni’s elopement from the year prior and then getting to capture this larger celebration for them will always remind us to make the most of what we’re given and that it’s always worthwhile to find reasons to celebrate. Thanks for keeping the candle burning, Emma and Yianni. You are magical.
