I absolutely loved this real wedding that one of our readers, Alana, sent me…it’s filled with lovely DIY touches and pretty, but really approachable style.

Real Wedding Outdoor Canada

A bit from the bride, Alana…

My husband Alex and I were married on July 19th 2008 in Summerland, British Columbia, Canada. We currently live in Montreal, Canada but we both grew up in the Okanagan and couldn’t imagine our wedding taking place anywhere else. Our ceremony was held on my parents’ lawn, which overlooks beautiful Okanagan Lake. We wanted to create an elegant, clean & simple wedding.

We were on a budget so we kept our guest list relatively small (75 people) and tried to do as many DIY projects as possible. We also wanted our wedding to be unique and very representative of us and didn’t want to have to sacrifice that because of the budget.

Stay tuned to hear all of the details from this gorgeous wedding!
