Wedding at The Permanent in Vancouver

The stunning wedding of Kate and Jon was a meeting of history and the contemporary, a joining of two families, and the union of two beautiful souls. It was an honour to document the wedding of two dear friends of my wife and I. It was also a joy to see my wife walk down the aisle as the Maid of Honour along with our daughter as the flower girl. 

The Permanent is a beautiful Vancouver wedding venue that originally opened its doors in 1935 as the BC Permanent & Loan Company and was home to the Bank of Canada for a time. Now beautifully-restored, it sits as a landmark fixture in Vancouver and the center for many celebrations.

It was a classy wedding with every element in its perfect place. When walking through the Permanent, you could see the Bank of Canada vault door still standing at the head of the main hall, with awe-inspiring stained glass atrium overhead. Kate’s wedding dress elegantly matched the ornate decor of the space, and Jon’s sophisticated suit matched the modern additions to their surroundings. 

The ceremony went in perfect harmony and I couldn’t be happier for my friends.

Here’s to you Kate and Jon.
