Suzanna and Pierre are a Richmond, BC couple from two different backgrounds. Suzanna was born and raised in Beijing while Pierre is a French Canadian originally from Montreal.
They began with a long distance relationship, with Pierre living in Victoria and Suzanna in Vancouver. On their first date, Pierre brought along a rose, but said he would not give it to Suzanna unless everything went well at the end of the evening. True to his word, after enjoying a wonderful first date, Suzanna was presented with a fine rose at the end of their first evening together.
Neither of them had envisioned marrying someone from a distant culture, but after about 5 years of dating, they took a trip together to China and Pierre proposed at the Great Wall.
The bride's dress was from Elmwood Brides in Toronto and both the wedding band and engagement rings are from Tiffany's.
Their beautiful wedding was held at Cecil Green on BC Day, August 4th, 2008.
Andrea and Rob of Lotus Events provided coordination on the wedding day. Floral arrangements were by Kathleen Chiu of Proline Trading Int'l.
