From Urban Lace EventsThe Bride and Groom live in New York City, but have spent many holidays and weekends in Cape Cod where the groom enjoyed childhood summers with his family. When choosing a wedding venue, the couple desired a location where friends and family could come together for a relaxing getaway. After visiting Chatham Bars Inn, the couple fell in love with its seaside location and elegant yet relaxing atmosphere.

With its seaside location, the couple envisioned a reception with a nautical feel. We see a lot of nautically designed weddings each year so we really wanted to elevate it and create a design with originality and sophistication. With Lucinda Wesson from Chocolate Creative Design on board to create the wedding paper, we knew it would be just that! The couples favorite detail was the Save the Dates that included a beautiful custom designed fabric pouch complete with a brass “porthole” and map of Cape Cod. The bride loved how the save the date set the tone for the wedding and got guest excited for the big day. The pattern used for the save the dates was carried throughout the wedding with the custom made table runners, menu cards, and wrapping paper for the bridal party gifts.

From The Bride… When Dave and I got engaged and started to think about our dream wedding, we knew we wanted to plan an event that would be elegant and classic with whimsical, personal touches and most of all be relaxed and fun for our guests. We live and work in Manhattan and decided we thought it would be extra special to come up with a great weekend destination – somewhere that would get people out of the city but wouldn’t be too far away for most of our guests. I had vacationed in Newport with my family growing up and had recently been back to Castle Hill Inn which is just the most magical and beautiful place – I knew it would be perfect. Dave and I took a trip to Newport and he was immediately convinced- Newport and Castle Hill would give us that perfect elegant environment for the wedding, with lots of room for fun for our guests.

We worked with Joyce Holland of Stoneblossom Florals and she became an incredibly trusted adviser and friend in planning. We weren’t stuck on any particular types of flowers but we knew we wanted the environment to feel light and soft with some minimal seaside/nautical touches. She paired lots of white and green flowers with beautiful garden roses, anenomes and other seasonal varietals which gave the perfect flecks of color for our fall celebration. She brought in tons of candles, mercury glass and other beautiful additions like lanterns and aisle decor. She was our savior! To add to Joyce’s decoration, the crew at Exquisite Events handled lighting. We picked vintage chandeliers and swathed the tent with fabric to bring the ceiling down a little lower and give it that quaint, vintage feel.

We were very lucky to have Judy Pak as our photographer. We fell in love with Judy’s signature style – light and airy, dreamy images. She captured our day to a tee from the perfectly orchestrated “first look” to those little moments that only the most skilled photographers can catch. She is a true artist.

Our cake was created by Marc and Marie Soliday/ Confectionery Designs. It was spectacular! Marie worked with Joyce to replicate the flowers in my bouquet. We were blown away when we saw it. Plus it tasted delicious. We had a most excellent band – Big Mix with Joe Shane, we brought them up from NY. I had seen them perform at a wedding many years before and they always stuck in my head. They played classic covers and even backed my husband our friend up for a little impromptu Whitesnake performance.

There were many special and personal touches throughout the weekend. From our “message in a bottle” save the dates, to our Adirondack chair escort cards (to match Castle Hill’s signature chairs) to our personalized welcome bags and signature cocktail straws, and much more, Alana Jones-Mann outdid herself in our collaboration! Alana is the queen of whimsy and details and took our visions and made them realities. She also hand letter pressed our three-piece custom invitations and created a gorgeous presentation for when they arrived to our guest’s mailboxes.

Castle Hill could not have been a more perfect venue for us. With breathtaking seaside views, the mansion and semi-permanent tent set the scene for our dream wedding. The menu was exquisite and the service is unparalleled. After the reception in the tent we hosted an after party in the mansion where our guests partied into the night. Our wedding was truly a dream, we loved every second!

From the bride…Brendon and I first met on the dance floor of a city nightclub just over eight years ago. Six years later during a holiday to America, Brendon popped the question in bed on Christmas Eve. Being a teacher I wanted to get married at the end of a school year so we could enjoy a long honeymoon, so we were married nearly two years later on the 15th of December. We chose the Stokehouse in St Kilda as our venue as we wanted to treat our guests to two of our favourite things, good food and wine. And with an amazing view out onto the bay, we couldn’t go past it.

For a day that was forecast for severe thunderstorms, our wedding day was absolutely perfect. The whole day ran so smoothly all thanks to a wonderful group of vendors recommended to us by our amazingly talented friends in Georgia and Cameron at Hello Blossoms Floristry. Taking their advice and booking all of the vendors was the best decision we made, as they all collaborated so well to pull off such a flawless day for Brendon and I.

Wedding stylist Laura Harvey from Weddings of Desire worked alongside Hello Blossoms to turn our request of a clean and simple palette of whites and greens into a creation that blew us both away. Samone and Janelle from Cake Ink were so patient with us when deciding on our stationary and wedding cake. Samone was effortlessly able to fuse our contrasting ideas together to develop an impeccable series of wedding stationary, all the way down to the hand written place cards. Janelle continued with the white and green palette to create an immaculate three tier wedding cake, which guests were able to take home and enjoy after the wedding, however, most probably did not last the taxi ride home. After our initial consultation with Stewart Leishman, Brendon and I immediately knew he had to photograph our special day. His shots say it all.

Vancouver Island Wedding at Dolphin Resort from Erin Wallis

Good food, good friends and an entire weekend of fun.  That’s what this darling duo had in mind when they planned their breathtaking Dolphins Resort soiree and, oh my goodness, did they succeed with flying colors.  Because this gorgeous gem of a day?  This beauty of a wedding?  It’s most definitely the kind of affair you dream about having… and attending.  From the picturesque scenery to the vintage stylings to the homemade cookies and ice cream, you can’t miss a moment captured by Erin Wallis in the full gallery.  Trust me.

From the Groom… When planning our wedding, we set out to make it representative of our new life together. Moving from the prairies of Saskatchewan to Campbell River, we knew that we wanted a Canadian “destination” wedding that gave our family and friends a feel for the west coast. After discussing a few ideas, Dolphins Resort emerged as the ideal setting. We had read and heard so many great things about the resort, especially the cuisine, we knew we could not disappoint our family and friends by asking them to join us at Dolphins. Nearly all our guests were traveling to meet us, so the twelve rustic cabins were perfect for a weekend gathering.

We met many times with Carmen Amberson, the value-added operations manager for the resort. Always confident that she understood us and our vision, we put our wedding plans in her hands. She worked tirelessly with her husband Joe, the chef, to make our vision a reality. The venue and food were taken care of. All we really needed to concern ourselves with were the outfits, music, drinks and decoration.

The idea for decoration was simple: antiques and trinkets that you would find in our home. No matching centerpieces and no ‘colours’. Carmen and Jessica combined efforts and trinkets to place throughout the reception cabin for the dinner, drinks and dance. Jessica’s sister and nanny baked our favorite cookies to go with Joe’s homemade ice cream and toppings in lieu of a cake. We didn’t expect complaints and we didn’t receive any!

When the day finally came, we exchanged vows on the beach and shared a champagne toast. After the ceremony the guests walked up to the top lawn for hors d’oeuvres, sangria, and Heather and Golden Ales from Salt Spring Island Ales. Meanwhile, Erin Wallis made us look like we felt with a shoot on the beach and float dock. Anyone in or around Campbell River already knows that Erin Wallis exceeds expectations.

In keeping with west coast weather, the rain began to fall and we moved to the main cabin to open the bar and dance the night away. We are told that our company carried on well after we retired to the beach house.
