This was Catherine + Dan’s 3rd wedding 🙂 Catherine + Dan met at a mutual friend’s Christmas party, where Dan’s tales of hopping around 7 cities in China in a month impressed Catherine, who is from China. Their first 2 wedding celebrations, fittingly, took place in China. Dan’s family flew out to celebrate with Catherine’s side of the family & they both held their bachelor & bachelorette parties in there as well. We are so impressed that Dan speaks & understands Mandarin (we don’t even understand it!).
For their Canadian ceremony, their nearest & dearest gathered in Dan’s Mom’s backyard and the sun was beaming down. Catherine was walked down the aisle by Dan’s dad (her parents’ visas were delayed so they weren’t able to attend).
The moment when I am walking down the aisle with Dan’s dad and see Dan is standing there waiting for me, also all the family and close friends are there for me. Everything else seems not important anymore. I feel I am the luckiest person in the world. – Catherine
