A Romantic, Whimsical Wedding at Minnekhada Lodge in British Columbia, Canada
Lisa Skinner (37, a Scientist) and Chris Louth (39, an IT Manager) met through an online dating site--fairly commonplace now, but not so much in 2004! After emailing for a week, the couple met for coffee at Starbucks and talked for thirteen hours straight (a wonderfully long first date!). In 2012, Lisa and Chris became the proud parents of twin boys, and later that year, at Christmas, Chris proposed. Although the couple currently resides in Boston, they decided to travel back home to Vancouver for their wedding, and held their ceremony and reception at Minnekhada Lodge, a place that held a special place in Chris's heart (his late father helped design the gardens). A fun touch to Lisa and Chris's wedding was their color palette of pink and gray, inspired by the color scheme in the video game Portal 2, which the couple loves to play together. Light pink was infused through the attire and flowers, and the cake itself was the gray cubes from the game!
