Jamie and George were married on 13.12.13 in Vancouver. Their wedding day kicked off with them getting ready together at home, their legal ceremony was in a tattoo studios where they then got matching ‘Til Death’ tattoos on their ring fingers, and ended with a handfasting ceremony and a big massive party for all their friends and family.
“As a super design nerd our wedding date was actually something I thought about when we were picking it”, Jamie explained. “I knew I could play with the numbers on any of our printed items and make it look fabulous. Also, that it was Friday the 13th and all the vendors were available even on short notice. Because, Friday the 13th. Oh yeah.”
“Our theme was very East-Vancouver, and very us. Mechanic-meets-webdesigner-meets-city-meets-metal-meets-grunge-meets-winter-meets-elegance. Trashy elegance. And we loved every detail. George is a mechanic and can’t wear rings. I inherited my late grandmother’s (whose portrait I haver on my left arm) wedding ring which she had custom made from a pair of her late mother’s vintage diamond earrings. Even though we were not going to exchange wedding rings, George and I really wanted to do something symbolic to represent our union. So we had the quick, dirty, and official ceremony at Gastown tattoo parlour where Mitch immediately tattooed the words “Til Death” on our ring fingers. SOOOOO enjoyed that!!!”
