Chris & Dagny Wed

Chris and Dagny tied the knot! On Saturday, April 18th, after a whirlwind of preparations coordinated by yours truly, these two wonderful people were married in a little chapel in Burnaby Village Museum, and partied the night away afterward at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, in the gorgeous spring setting of Deer Lake Park. The lateness of spring this year was a surprise to all, but it was just what the wedding coordinator ordered: all the park’s blossoming trees, daffodils and other early spring flowers that would normally be finished by mid-April were at their peak. It was a beautiful afternoon, and they make such a perfect couple. I wish I had more photos of my own – this one comes from Dagny’s sister & bridesmaid Marla – but I had enough to do without wielding a camera. I was wedding coordinator and matron of honour, Richard was both groomsman and emcee, and we had our hands full. Luckily, Dagny and Chris had a talented pair of photographers following us around, so I look forward to showing a few of the formal photos as soon as Dagny gets them. (For once I’m even excited to see a few of me… I’ve never been this dolled up before. And mmm, my man looks damn good in a tux.) So there you have it. What was once referred to as the Olson Vortex is now an ever-expanding spiral, growing in love and friendship, humour and happy memories. Here’s to the bride and groom!
