Valentine Stories

Through these years working in bridal makeup and hair, I have met hundreds of wedding couples from Vancouver, Hong Kong, US, England and many places in between. I’ve seen high-school sweethearts tying the knot after 12 years of dating, or courageous “newly mets” having 2-3 month long engagements, long-distance relationships, good friends turned lovers, lost and found second chances etc..... I enjoy hearing how the Brides met their Grooms, and what brought them to the path of marriage.

Lately I’ve noticed that internet-dating or speed-dating could be part of the story, and have known a few Brides who found their better halves through such services. If you are intrigued, like I am, by this modern phenomenon, you might be interested in a new play that I just purchased tickets for -- The Quickie. “A Vancouver-based, contemporary romantic comedy that rips a strip out of speed dating, making whoopee, and cultural collision.”
