THE STORY OF TIFFANY + KEN

they parted ways, not knowing what fate had in store…

KEN AND TIFF BOTH WENT TO THE SAME HIGH SCHOOL IN VANCOUVER, BUT THEY WEREN’T EXACTLY HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEARTS. ALTHOUGH THEY HAD SEEN EACH OTHER AROUND, THEY NEVER REALLY SPOKE OR KNEW ONE ANOTHER. AFTER HIGH SCHOOL, THEY PARTED WAYS, NOT KNOWING WHAT FATE HAD IN STORE. KEN LEFT FOR UNIVERSITY IN WATERLOO, WHILE TIFF STAYED IN VANCOUVER. IN THE SUMMER OF 2012, KEN RETURNED TO VANCOUVER TO SPEND TIME WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY BEFORE LEAVING AGAIN FOR SAN FRANCISCO. THAT SUMMER, KEN AND TIFF WERE BOTH INVITED TO THE SAME PARTY AT VENUE. AS THEY HUNG OUT WITH MUTUAL FRIENDS, THEY COULDN’T HELP BUT NOTICE HOW QUICKLY THEY HIT IT OFF. AFTER THAT NIGHT, THEY CONTINUED TALKING, AND BEGAN TO REALLY FALL FOR ONE ANOTHER. WHEN KEN LEFT FOR SAN FRANCISCO LATER THAT YEAR, THEY DECIDED TO TRY THE LONG DISTANCE THING AND GIVE THEIR RELATIONSHIP A SHOT. THE REST IS HISTORY!

THE PROPOSAL

AS THEY LOST THEMSELVES IN THE MOMENT, KEN KNEW IT WAS TIME…

AFTER DATING FOR SIX YEARS, KEN DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO POP THE QUESTION. IN THE WEEKS LEADING UP TO THE PROPOSAL, KEN PLANNED EVERYTHING OUT WITH HIS BROTHER, TIFF’S SISTER, AND A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER. ON A WEEKEND VISIT TO VANCOUVER, HE ASKED TIFF IF SHE’D BE UP FOR A HIKE TO THE TOP OF QUARRY ROCK TO CATCH THE SUNRISE. SHE AGREED SO THEY GOT AS MUCH SLEEP AS THEY COULD BEFORE HAVING TO WAKE UP AT 4:30AM. THEY WERE EXHAUSTED BUT COMMITTED TO CATCHING THE SUNRISE. THEY BEGAN THEIR TREK ON SEPTEMBER 2ND, 2017. IT WAS STILL PITCH BLACK WHEN THEY BEGAN THE CLIMB. ABOUT 15 MINUTES IN, KEN REALIZED HE FORGOT THE RING IN THE CAR! HE WAS SO TIRED AND FRAZZLED THAT HE DOESN’T EVEN REMEMBER WHAT EXCUSE HE MADE, BUT HE MANAGED TO GET TIFF TO WAIT UP FOR HIM AS HE BOLTED DOWN TO THE CAR AS FAST AS HE COULD. A WINDED KEN RETURNED AND THEY CONTINUED THEIR JOURNEY. THEY MADE IT JUST IN TIME TO SEE A MAGICAL SUNRISE ILLUMINATING THE SUMMER SKY IN NORTH VANCOUVER. AS THEY LOST THEMSELVES IN THE MOMENT, KEN KNEW IT WAS TIME.

HE GOT DOWN ON ONE KNEE, PROFESSED HIS LOVE, AND ASKED TIFF TO MARRY HIM. AS SHE SAID, “YES!” KEN’S BROTHER, TIFF’S SISTER, AND THE PHOTOGRAPHER EMERGED FROM THE TREES TO CELEBRATE AND CAPTURE THE MOMENT.

KEN - Daniel.png

best man: daniel cheng

DANIEL AND KEN HAVE BEEN FRIENDS SINCE KINDERGARTEN AND WERE VIRTUALLY INSEPARABLE THROUGHOUT HIGH SCHOOL...UNTIL THEIR TEACHERS SEPARATED THEM. WHILE THEY NOW LIVE IN DIFFERENT CITIES, THEY SHARE THE UNBREAKABLE BOND FORGED BY SWORD FIGHTING WITH BAGUETTES IN THE STREETS OF FRANCE, AND RECORDING MUSIC IN THEIR BASEMENTS.

TIFF+-+Olivia+(MoH).png

maid of honour: olivia lam

IF I HAVE TO DESCRIBE MY SISTER IN 3 WORDS IT WOULD BE: COURAGEOUS BOSS BABE. MY SISTER IS NOT JUST MY SISTER, BUT SHE IS MY SECOND MOTHER. I LOVE HER FUN AND ADVENTUROUS NATURE. SHE’LL BE THE FIRST PERSON TO PLAN AN EPIC FAMILY TRIP. AN INTERESTING FACT ABOUT MY SISTER IS THAT SHE IS THE FIRST WOMAN TO WIN A WALLY SAILBOAT RACE IN EUROPE.

KEN - Rico.png

GROOMSMAN: RICO CHONG

KEN HAS KNOWN RICO FOR A LIFETIME. AS BROTHERS, THEY SHARE MANY FOND MEMORIES OF FAMILY VACATIONS WHERE THEY PLAYED BACKSEAT GAMES DURING LONG ROAD TRIPS AND FOUGHT OVER BEDS IN HOTEL ROOMS. RICO’S LIGHTHEARTEDNESS REMINDS HIS OLDER BROTHER TO APPRECIATE THE PRESENT AND TAKE TIME TO SMELL THE ROSES.


TIFF - Jenn.png

BRIDESMAID: JENNIFER YAN

JENN AND I ARE LIKE GLUE, WE’VE DONE EVERYTHING TOGETHER EVER SINCE WE WERE BABIES. EVEN THOUGH SHE IS ONLY A COUPLE OF WEEKS OLDER THAN ME, SHE IS A GREAT ROLE MODEL TO ME. SHE IS ALWAYS POSITIVE, CALM, AND CONFIDENT. A RANDOM FACT ABOUT JENN IS THAT SHE IS REALLY GOOD AT BASKETBALL DESPITE HER SHORT STATURE.

KEN - David.png

GROOMSMAN: DAVID NARODOWSKI

DAVID AND KEN HAVE ALSO KNOWN EACH OTHER SINCE KINDERGARTEN AND GREW UP IN THE SAME NEIGHBOURHOOD. THE TWO OF THEM SPENT THEIR TEEN YEARS (BADLY) IMPROVISING THEIR TRUMPET PARTS DURING BAND PERFORMANCES, AND ON COUNTLESS LATE NIGHT (MIS)ADVENTURES AROUND TOWN. THAT IS ALL I AM ALLOWED TO SAY.

TIFF - Henry.png


BRIDESMAN: HENRY HU

HENRY IS LIKE A BROTHER FROM ANOTHER MOTHER. I MET HIM IN HIGH SCHOOL IN GRADE 8 AND WE’VE BEEN BEST FRIENDS EVER SINCE. HE IS A FRIEND YOU CAN COUNT ON NO MATTER WHAT. I WILL DEEPLY MISS HIM WHEN HE NO LONGER LIVES NEXT DOOR. SOMETHING INTERESTING ABOUT HENRY IS THAT HE GREW UP WANTING TO BE BOTH A DJ AND A FASHION DESIGNER.

KEN - Mathias.png

GROOMSMAN: MATHIAS TELLO

KEN AND MATTHIAS MET IN HIGH SCHOOL AND HAVE BEEN CLOSE FRIENDS EVER SINCE. THEY SPENT MANY UNIVERSITY STUDY PERIODS PLAYING ONLINE GAMES, SLAYING DRAGONS AND TROLLS. MATHIAS’ IS STUBBORNLY LOYAL WITH FRIENDS, AND IS ONE OF THE BEST TO HAVE WITH YOU IN THE TRENCHES… UNLESS YOU ARE ON A QUEST...TRYING TO SLAY DRAGONS AND TROLLS...

TIFF+-+Leo.png

BRIDESMAN: LEO CHAN

LEO HAS ALWAYS BEEN ONE OF MY BESTEST FRIENDS SINCE HIGH SCHOOL. I KNOW...I HAVE A LOT OF GREAT PEOPLE IN MY LIFE. HE’S ALWAYS DOWN TO TRY NEW THINGS WITH ME. HE IS MY GAMING, ANIME WATCHING, AND BAKING BUDDY. SOME INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT LEO ARE THAT HE HAS A BLACK BELT IN TAEKWONDO AND AN AVID FAN OF KIM KARDASHIAN.
