WILL YOU CELEBRATE WITH US?
It was 2018 when Yem & Spencer’s love story first began. Just two 21 year old Facebook friends.
Spencer knew from the moment he started talking to Yem that she was the one for him.. they continued to chat for several months. Their first date included walking the Esquimalt Lagoon while watching the sun go down. Followed by a few very special dates.. they connected quite quickly & have been together ever since.
A few of Yem and Spencers favorite memories from their time together would be: Flying to Mexico, Vegas & Newfoundland, snorkelling, kayaking, every camping trip, the hot tub boat in the inner harbour, fishing adventure days, dirt-biking as a family... the lists really does go on.
Spencer proposed to Yemima on December 12th, 2020 after a long year of COVID changes. Yem thought she was going for a nice mom / dad date night in a hotel looking over the Malahat's water & trees. The hotel room faced the most beautiful view with a soaker tub. Spencer had gone there early and set up the room with rose petals , champagne, charcuterie, candles, chocolates, a cozy pj set and a huge sign that read MARRY ME? Needless to say, Yem obviously said YES !!
Yem and Spencer couldn’t be more excited for this next chapter of their lives & they cannot wait to celebrate with all their friends and family.
We want everyone to enjoy their time on our special day & we want to limit drinking and driving as much as possible. (East Sooke road can be scary at night). We highly suggest you ask for a ride to our wedding from a friend or family member. Or you car pool with one of the other guests that has a parking spot. We have 20 spots which equals to 100 seats. More than enough seats for our guests. Sooke cab is also an option.
We only have 20 parking spots for our wedding venue. If you must drive please send Yem a message ASAP at 250-415-5026 to reserve your parking spot.
I have added 1-2 cars per family to make it work! Everyone must carpool for us to have enough spaces for all our guests!
A note from Yemima and Spencer:
As most of you already know, we have been living together for over 3 years. We are not accepting gifts as we don’t really need anything. But we would absolutely appreciate any generosity in the form of a donation towards our wedding and house fund. Thank you for celebrating with us!
We will also be having a cash bar for our wedding & each guest will receive 2 free drink tickets. You are welcome to buy more drink tickets as you wish!
Please RSVP by January 1st
