Happy almost New Year's!
MADSAM! Samboleine. BoMad.
Whatever you want to call these two is fine. They'll smile and then you'll be caught up in Sambo's huge laugh and Madeleine's unbelievable sweetness. I seriously loved hanging with them and remember meeting them very vividly last year. Back in the spring we spent some time together in Vancouver for their engagement session and even did some photos on BC Ferries. Fast forward a few months and we have their wedding. The wedding on the weekend with the storm of all storms apparently about to hit Vancouver Island.
Well, Madeleine and Sambo didn't let anything but their friends and family being there affect them. It was an amazing day with lots of food. I had to mention that at 8 am when you show up a wedding with Chinese traditions you'd better be prepared to eat, and eat lots. Don't bother saying no "thank you" because every Mom, every Aunt and every friend is going to insist. And you won't regret it. I had some delicious handmade spring rolls that day!
These photos being shared was a long time coming. You are going to see a few things : Sambo smiles huge, Madeleine is absolutely radiant, traditions and games are so much fun, there was a lot of love here, and this storm had some rain but wasn't going to stop the party. Thanks to Becca who came out and rocked this wedding with me!
Madeleine & Sambo, thanks for picking me!
