Anyone who’s ever gotten married knows the ceremony can be as expensive as it is stressful.
That’s why Vancouver gave some lovebirds a bit of a break. Love in the Square, an event sponsored by the city itself and dozens of other officiants, gave couples the chance to tie the knot for free on Valentine’s Day weekend. Entering its second year, almost one hundred couples came out to walk down the aisle, exchange their vows and even pose for professional photographs.
Of course, everything wasn’t perfect.
“I’m so freezing cold that I can’t feel my feet,” one excited bride said.
But weather aside, love was certainly in the air. Six couples were married at a time at Robson Square, with each ceremony lasting about ten minutes. The best part was, these were all couples who otherwise may not have been able to afford a traditional wedding.
“It sounded fun but definitely the price of getting married these days [makes it] very difficult,” bride Jody Sztraube said.
