“When I first met Serra, she was wearing a sparkly silver branch on her head,” announced Serra’s best friend during the wedding toasts.
This sentence warmed my heart. It pretty much perfectly summed up the wonderful interaction I’d been having so far with Serra and Alex. She is so bursting with life, and Alex so adorably in tune with her, I couldn’t help but get carried away with her engaging smile and his endearing smirks. Both avid bike fans, they were leaving Vancouver a couple days after their quiet East Van parkside wedding to cycle through eastern Europe together. We ran all over the city together, going to their favourite places, capturing the first moments of this next cycle in their lives.
Thank you for inspiring me, Serra and Alex. You’re amazing.
