5.20.2020 Love Never Ends Pop Up Elopement at Brock House
Many couples have to postpone or cancel their weddings due to current COVID-19 pandemic. With the new regulations, couples are lost with with what they can or should do under this critical situation. Therefore, in collaboration with our industry partners, we put together a pop up elopement event to provide them with a safe environment to say I DO and make it official.
The pop up elopement is part of “There for You” project we put together to help couples in need during this difficult time. We want to be there for them and provide solutions to fulfil their needs.
We have all been patiently waiting for economy to reopen in a safe environment. This is the first event after 2 months lockdown in Vancouver to help couples in need. Other than following government regulation including max 50 people on site, wearing masks at all time while practicing social distancing, we also extend the elopement ceremony from 30 min to 1 hour to ensure we have enough time to clean and sanitize all items after each ceremony. Our goal is to keep everyone safe while celebrating LOVE!
5.20.2020 LOVE NEVER ENDS
520 means I love you because in Chinese I love you pronounced as “wǒ ài nǐ, and 520 is “wǔ èr líng”. They sound alike, therefore when you say 520, it sounds like saying I love you. Many couples, especially Chinese couples, like to express their love on 520. Therefore, it is extremely meaningful to get married and make it official this year on 5202020 to shout out love never ends and I will love you forever.
On behalf of the company and all vendors, congratulation to the 8 couples who got married on 520, and thank you for sharing your day with us.
