Academic climates seem to draw Amanda and Irfan together. While technically meeting in pre-school at the age of four, Amanda and Irfan reconnected in a business communications course their second year of University. They spent time together on group projects, became friends and soon thereafter fell in love.
Irfan expressed his love to Amanda by whisking her away on a surprise trip to beautiful Tofino, BC, where he planned a candlelit dinner proposal at The Pointe restaurant. Overjoyed by his romantic gesture, Amanda whole-heartedly said—yes.
The Big Day
When it came to wedding plans, everything neatly fell into place. “Deciding on the wedding theme wasn’t really a decision,” says Amanda, “when we found our venue, it blew both of us away, and we knew we had to get married there. The venue certainly guided the rustic part of the theme.” Bias towards whimsically romantic flowers, Amanda chose to accent the rustic deep red and rich green colour scheme with elegant hints of pink, purple and ivory.
Soaking in every minute of that perfect day, the newlyweds’ most magical moments were being sun kissed on a cloudy day during the vows and sharing the last dance to an acoustic version of Latch by Sam Smith with loved ones around.
