Joanna + Zach


Joanna and Zach live in New York where Zach is a neurosurgeon, and Joanna kills the investment banking game. I mean COME ON.

While planning their wedding, they had their hearts set on Hatley Castle in Victoria, BC where Zach grew up, and decided to bring their family and friends together from across the continent at this historic spot.

After a sweet first look and emotional ceremony, the party really got started…

You know how sometimes when you go to a wedding, there are those lulls in the day between events? Well, there wasn’t a single lull at this wedding. Seriously, no lulls, and we aren’t complaining.

Cocktail hour entertainment included a magician and barbershop singers, costumed dancers performed a traditional lion dance, a live saxophonist serenaded at dinner, a clown entertained for the kids, and even Vancouver’s own hype crew, La Hora Loca, made a surprise appearance. Joanna’s sister brought her pro catering skills to the table and they flew in their cake from the infamous Momofuku Milk Bar in Los Angeles, CA.

Canadians could learn a thing or two about epic party planning from New Yorkers, just saying.

Get a glimpse of what we’re talking about in the teaser film below. More good stuff to come!
