From the Bride…Our classically inspired wedding took place on August 24, 2013 in British Columbia. The ceremony was held at the quaint St. Francis-in-the-Wood Church in West Vancouver, Macully’s first church he attended as a child. I wanted a sophisticated yet timeless wedding, and kept to a colour scheme of simple white and charcoal gray. The intimate wedding ceremony included our family and closest friends, followed by photographs on Caulfield Rocks overlooking the Pacific Ocean and downtown Vancouver skyline. The reception was held at the penthouse of The Loden Hotel in Vancouver, providing a beautiful and elegant venue for the wedding celebration!

From the Whitney KrutzfeldtThe moment I met Jennifer I knew she would have the most elegant & timeless wedding because that is exactly how she is herself! Her own sophistication shined through the details of her wedding day which was a stunning white affair. The white color scheme worked perfectly with the amazing Penthouse of the Loden hotel which is blanketed in soft colors and big open windows. I loved that she chose to have an intimate affair, inviting her guests to the charming St.Francis in the Wood Church and then to party the night away for an after party at the luxurious penthouse!

Bohemian Beach Engagement Session

This Bride-to-be is not only drop dead gorgeous but she also gives great advice; words of wisdom about the awesomeness of engagement shoots. Also super cute? The fact that this couple, who will be saying “I Do” South of the Border, gave a nod to their Destination nuptials with a traditional mexican blanket incorporated into the shoot. It’s cute, cute, and more cute captured by Taryn Baxter.

From the bride-to-be… As a wedding photographer myself, doing an engagement session was really important to me! Not only do I think it’s important to capture these beautiful moments but I also think it’s such a special way for a couple to enjoy each other and bask in the romance and love that comes with being newly engaged. I must say that the days following our engagement session we felt like a giddy newly engaged couple all over again!

Graeme and I had decided on a Mexico wedding a little over a year away so I was eager to do my engagement session so I could send out the Save the Dates with lots of time for all our guests to plan a vacation away. We’re not city people at all so the combination of these things meant we had to brave the cold and do our engagement photos outside in the middle of the Vancouver winter. My inner hippie came out and I was determined to wear my favorite Canadian Tuxedo (jean on jean) and a long white dress with a flower crown. Thankfully we decided to incorporate a traditional Mexican blanket into some of the photos which definitely helped keep us warm and included a little bit of the wedding to come in.

My amazing friend and photographer Taryn Baxter made the shoot so easy and fun. We were so relaxed around her that we could just be ourselves and that is what we loved most about the pictures. They were so true to who we are and she did such an amazing job of capturing all those special moments.

My one tip to couples doing an engagement session is to take it as an opportunity to do something you might not be able to do style wise (or just in general) at your wedding that you really love! I love the bohemian look but wasn’t 100% that I would wear a loose flowing dress at my wedding or a flower crown so I decided I really wanted to incorporate that into my engagement photos. Now I have beautiful photos that capture that side of me too. If for instance your weddings in the city but you love the outdoors or a barn feel then do your photos outside at a local ranch! It’s a great way to showcase a side of you that you can’t at your wedding.

All in all we had an amazing time! I really encourage couples to do an engagement session and we can’t thank Taryn enough for our beautiful photos!

Vintage Chic Wedding at Brock House Restaurant

I’m ALL for beautiful wedding details, but it’s the stories that really stay with me. Stories like this couple who held an impromptu ceremony months before the wedding so the bride’s ill mother could witness their marriage. And while she lost her battle before the Big Day, the couple wove in beautiful moments to honor her memory while celebrating their love. Petite Pearl Events gave this bride and groom the gorgeous “I do” they so deserve and you can see it through the lens of Vasia Photography right here.

From the Bride… Funny enough, we met in high school when Brandon was a senior, me (Ania) a sophomore. As Brandon was graduating that year, I snuck my first kiss from him on Prom night. Brandon spent the following two years away at the University of New Orleans on a golf scholarship and we kept in touch via phone calls, good old MSN Messenger and holiday visits. When it was my turn to graduate in 2003, I asked Brandon to be my grad date and the rest is history. Nine years later and after six years of living together, we were finally married!

Our birthdays are one day apart (April 9th + April 10th) and we usually celebrate together. On my (Ania’s) birthday on Saturday, April 9th, 2011, I woke up to Brandon making me breakfast and telling me that my gift was a spa day together at the Fairmont Pacific Rim. After our massages, we went down tot he lobby bar where we had some sushi, oysters and martinis (he claims he needed this to calm his nerves). He suggested a walk before we left for home, so we took to the seawall for a few minutes. On our way back to the hotel he started saying really sweet, kind words which I thought was a little funny which followed by “I want to thank you for being so patient” which sort of got me thinking…but before I knew it, he was already down on one knee asking me to marry him in front of the Olympic Cauldron.

Of course I said yes and there was cheering from onlookers! He then let me know that we were going home to pack-up and would be staying at the hotel that evening. He also told me that he had planned a surprise birthday party in the cellar at Salt in Gastown. This is where we got to share the big news with all of our closest friends and had an amazing night catered with lots of wine and charcuterie! Definitely my best birthday ever and a memory I will cherish forever.

Best Wedding Moment: I think our favorite moment was when we were able to honor my mother (Ania’s) at the end of our ceremony. She passed away after a battle with ALS in March 2012 and we informed our guests that we would not be signing any documents today as we had had a religious ceremony at Holy Rosary Cathedral in November 2011 with her present. It was a small, intimate gathering with 14 of our closest family members and friends. We had kept it a secret until the big day. My mom was a big part in the planning process for our Brock House wedding and I only wish she could have been there to see it all come together.

My favorite wedding details were the dress, photographer, the catering, our guests. That said, the table decor and flowers absolutely blew me away in addition to our “outdoor living room” with chandelier under the tree. Our wedding planner, Jessica Minnie of Petite Pearl Events, and the decorator/florist, Jeanette Kornelson of Delovely Creative, hit it out of the park and I am beyond happy that I had the opportunity to work with such talented ladies! I could have never put something so beautiful together myself.
