The Couple

Kevin + Lexxus

Love Story

“We met 5 years ago working at a restaurant together. When we first met, it was very bubbly and friendly. We like to look back and say that we instantly knew we would be in each others’ lives somehow, whether it was as good friends or great co-workers, we just felt a strong connection to each other. We both traveled and did our own things for almost a year before realizing that we both secretly looked forward to sharing every story and wanting to talk more any time we were away from each other. Finally, in the fall of 2018, we set up our first staff hangout at a brewery, both secretly knowing it was so that we had a reason to both hangout outside of work for the first time, and within the hour of that hangout we were both in our own world together. Although our actual first date together was a few days after the staff hangout, we both knew there was something more there after that first night at the brewery. And even then, we look back and joke that very shortly after that on the second date, we knew we would marry each other but just refused to admit it. Three weeks later, we had a long talk as we walked around a lake in Stanley Park and decided to really give us a shot. Two years later and many changes, travels, and milestones, we went back to Stanley Park where Kevin proposed in the same place we first walked as boyfriend and girlfriend. The reason we decided to get married in Stanley Park was for that same reason, to begin a new chapter of our lives together where it all started. Our goal for our wedding really ended up coincidentally being the same as our whole relationship has been. Full of intention, love, tenderness, vulnerability and love. We wanted to be seen in our relationship in such a real way, acknowledging the challenges, the growth, the qualities of each other and show others the rawness of what love can be. Many people have asked us along the planning process what our theme was or what we were planning on doing, and our only real answer is that we picked everything based on what was true for our love as a couple. All the colours, all the little photos of memories we had displayed on the tables, the handmade table decor and party favours and well, really the entire wedding was made and planned completely by us, our friends, and family coming together as one. In our opinion, it was what made the energy and the wedding day was so impactful and moving, as every choice and detail was made with intention. The humble reminder of being grounded in such a beautiful and celebratory practice of love and family”
