**2012 BC Wedding Awards Winner- Best Wedding Videography/Cinematography**
This has to be one of our most unique wedding videos. Let us have the honour to introduce Hanako + Tomohiro's wedding at Thrangu Monastery, a beautiful Tibetan temple here in Richmond, BC.
It was fate. As much as I think that the word fate is such a strong word, meeting Hanako was more like reuniting with an old friend. Her positive energy and bubbly personality simply brought us closer together. It is our fortune to have met her, her husband Tomohiro, her best friends, and all the monks and volunteers at the temple.
I myself believe in karma. I believe that everyone I encounter in my life is a result of karma, and sometimes, destiny. As one of the monks, the officiant Rabjor, says, "because of your karma that we're getting together here." We were there not only to celebrate Hanako and Tomohiro's wedding, but also to be there together to pray for their well being, health, happiness, and success.
I want to thank everyone who was part of this incredible event. Thank you, Hanako and Tomohiro, for inviting us to capture such beautiful moments at this special place. Thank you, Lama Pema and Rabjor for organizing such a tranquil wedding, and all the volunteers for the hard work and help. Thank you to the chefs for their super delicious vegetarian food (yum!). Thanks to the participants at the temple who prayed for the couple, and Hanako's friends for making the trip all the way to Richmond, and of course our awesome photo and video crew that did such an incredible job together.
We hope you enjoy this video!
