Italian Cultural Center Wedding
The Italian Cultural Center was the backdrop for Spencer and Alessandra’s wedding which was full of heartfelt speeches, tears and joy. Thank you for allowing us to see a window into your lives and the bond which you have with your families. Italian weddings, Chinese weddings, Persian weddings…any ethnic wedding, I find there to be so much community and celebration which takes place and I love it! There is such a focus on family and being with the ones you love and EVERYBODY gets up to dance at the party.
A little about the center:
“Our Mission is to promote Italian culture, heritage and values and share these with other communities.”
The Italian Cultural Centre, or Il Centro, has been an essential part of Vancouver’s cultural landscape for more than three decades. It opened in 1977 when its founding members, 13 existing Italian Associations, came together “to promote Italian culture, values and heritage and to share these with other communities.
Through their collective love of art, food, wine, design, film, music and literature, they proudly share their culture with the community, and welcome all who wish to be part of this vibrant destination in Vancouver.
