Love, love, love. That is all there is to say about today’s featured wedding. The bride and groom are that cool couple that you always want to have at your dinner parties. The ones that bring a really great, artistic flair to the scene…with a style is relaxed chic, vintage inspired, undeniably great.

From Leah, the gorgeous bride…

After the wedding, we chose to have a seated dinner in a loft at the Canoe Brewpub, Restaurant and Marina. Right on the water, CANOE is located in a 1894 heritage landmark building that has a fantastic feel of a loft crossed with a warm log cabin– perfect for a winter’s evening. Right along with our food philosophy, Canoe showcases local farmers and a changing menu of seasonal organics, the finest cuts of meat and wild seafood. We chose to showcase British Columbia in our choice of wines and wild salmon. We gave a nod to New York and the USA with a New York Steak, and a red velvet wedding cake.

We then all walked up the street to the Lucky Bar for our first dance and all the frivolity to follow! The Lucky is a bar a friend of mine had opened, and with which I had helped out with the original decor and design. As such, it echoed with memories of countless evenings of good times. We are “lucky” enough to count many musicians and djs as friends, and so Gregg D of New York and Rusty Seger of Philadelphia spun “block-rockers from back in the day” for us to get down to.

So much more to come!
