S&R - Whimsical Boho Chic Backyard Wedding

I could not love these two, or their love, any more. I’ve known and loved Saschie for years (like…15 years?!?) and have had the privilege of watching her grow into the most amazing woman of purpose, strength and intention. When she and Roman got engaged, and they asked me to come on board, I could not have been more flattered or excited! Saschie had talked about this family friends property being her wedding venue for the past 10 years and when she said that’s where it was actually going to happen I was over the moon. I knew this place held a special place in her heart.

They wanted to craft a day that would surprise and delight their guests. EVERYTHING they had at their wedding was for a purpose. They started the night with a loungy, interactive cocktail hour complete with a flambe station, taco bar, beautiful big bar, Collective You portrait booth, and little lounge sets across the lawn. The best part about this was that they were there to greet their guests upon arrival and join in the festivities. Then, we moved guests to the custom crafted (haha you should have seen my drawings and math equations!!) open air tent that her dad constructed. Guests ate an incredible family-style meal (thanks to White Table Catering!) as the sun set. The speeches were everything. Heartfelt, considerate, kind, memorable and emotional. Then, while S&R took a moment to gather themselves inside, their guests moved over to their fairy light ceremony nook. All of the images that Saschie and I had gone through during the planning had these images in them and I was SO happy that she had this magical ceiling to get married under.

And then the party. P.A.R.T.Y. These two are the owners of the Beyonce-Style dance workshops, RSVP33, and met at a dance class years ago. So needless to say their friends can DANCE. The dance floor was full. with incredible dancers!

Saschie and Roman - thank you for allow us to be a part of your wedding day. It was magical and everything I wanted for you.

We were so happy to see the beautiful wedding in print in the latest Weddingbells Magazine!

A Little BTS Video!

Our friend Mat, at the amazing Capture the Moment Media, made us a little Christmas present! I was so excited to see him rework some of the footage from S&R’s Bowen Island wedding (see full wedding here!) to get us a short Behind the Scenes video! Not only was it awesome to be brought back to that special day, but it was great to see the outcome of our hard work!

B&H - West Coast Whimsical Chic

This.

This wedding. This couple. This setting.

Everything.

This wedding was such an amazing challenge to plan, that seeing it all come together was a career highlight. This couple challenged me in the best sense of the word, to create a bigger, better, more “out there”, more personal wedding day. We worked with B’s parents on their private property in Langley to make every nook and cranny filled with whimsy and magic. We wanted to WOW their guests. We had a crazy vendor team that worked so, SO hard to make this event come together.

Shannon and Ross - Bowen Island Wedding

This wedding is still one of our all time favourites! The natural beauty and charm of their location simply can't be beat! The logistics of making this one happen were challenging but we had an amazing team on board to make it happen and the day was incredible! We had the threat of rain leading up to the wedding day but we didn't get a single drop! We will always look back on this day with such love! 

 

Janelle and Steve - Tofino Beachside Wedding

I am so excited to finally be sharing this beachside, west coast beauty of a day! A completely classic, Tofino wedding was the perfect match for these two loves. The atmosphere and backdrops suited them perfectly, the laid-back island vibes were perfect for their guests, and the party that SideOne brought just made the day perfection. There were a ton of logistical hurdles that we saw along the way with this one as it was one of the biggest weddings Tofino had ever hosted. We accepted the challenge and created so many awesome spaces for the guests to really get into vacation/party mood! Although there were a few rain drops (classic Tofino!), the bride, groom, guests and vendors didn't let it phase them! A huge congrats to J&S!

Lexi and Scott - Vancouver Convention Centre Wedding

Getting these two married was so much fun. I have known Lexi since she was 11 years old and sending her down the aisle to her true love put tears in my eyes! They were so relaxed with the whole planning and really sat back and allowed me to guide them through the process. The Vancouver Convention Centre (one of my favourite wedding venues!!) was the perfect backdrop for both their ceremony and reception.

Allie and Brady - Brock House Restaurant Wedding

This wedding was full of sweet and simple details that was one of our favourites this summer! The way these two looked at each other, made me remember why I do this job. They surrounded themselves with a fantastic vendor team to make the day happen. The family took the time to string the lighting on the Brock House lawn and made the space so much more functional at night. It was perfect!
