Amber & Jeff: A School-Themed Summer Wedding in Vancouver, BC

Amber and Jeff first met as mechanical engineering students at the University of British Columbia. They dated throughout college, so when the proposal came six-and-a-half years later, it wasn’t exactly unexpected. The Bride Amber dela Rosa, 29, dental hygienist The Groom Jeff Riha, 33, mechanical engineer The Date August 3 Amber had picked out the ring herself, but the proposal was up to Jeff. One night, the two were walking along the pier of Granville Island, a quaint local shopping district. They stopped, and just as soon as Jeff opened his mouth to propose, a boat horn blared so loudly that Amber couldn’t hear him. Amber heard his question after the fourth attempt and the two started planning their wedding. The self-proclaimed science geeks decided to use a science class theme for their outdoor wedding and carried it through all of the wedding day details. The inspiration for the color scheme? A sheet of notebook paper.
