This sweet wedding sent to us by Rebecca Amber Photography has all the makings of a happily ever after. From a bun in the oven to a beaming Bride and Groom, this is one picnic so deserving of the spotlight. And this is just the spot to let it shine – blankets, hand-picked flowers and all. Head to the gallery for more from this Vancouver Island wedding that proves sometimes simplicity is the most beautiful of all.

From Rebecca Amber Photography I was ever so lucky to photograph and be a bridesmaid to my best friend’s beautiful Vancouver Island wedding. It all came together with the local love from friends and family who have witnessed Isa and Niel fall in love for years. From home-baked pies, pulled pork and a potluck-style, picnic table dinner to antique decor and outdoor dance floor… this was a DIY wedding that showcased family friendships and featured lots of farm-style fun! We spent weeks prior picking out glassware and details from vintage shops and family china cabinets. All the flowers were freshly picked from our friends’ gardens, and the food was prepared from the fingers of Isa’s best friends. The wedding was a perfect parallel to Isa and Niels Love for one another: natural, authentic, free and organic…
