In an architecturally eye pleasing building downtown Vancouver we has the pleasure of attending the wedding of our family, Kyle and Denise.
A romantic collision of Italian marries Chinese it was a cultural mashup - throw in friends from all over the world and even the couple's dog and it made for an eclectic and happy celebration.
If we can define it further in a culinary sense might we say bruschetta meets dim sum?
The banquet was held the previous evening in a five star Chinese restaurant and consisted of an eight course meal and included such delicacies as sea cucumber (pictured above). My usually squeamish Mr outdid me in adventurousness by eating a good portion of this dish - I just couldn't quite make it there.
We met relatives we haven't had the opportunity to until now - it's amazing and wonderful, like adding new leaves on our family tree!
Though it rained softly off and on the venue location featured a 'waterfall' theme.
Fortunately the interior of the building was light and bright and inviting.
And, this lovely event, anticipated for long was over all too quickly.
Congratulations Kyle and Denise!
