Vancouver Wedding at Shaughnessey Restaurant

Whenever a wedding begins with a killer bouquet, I know we’re in for something good. And thanks to Umbrella EventsAll Dolled Up Studios and GJ House Flowers my gut instinct didn’t disappoint one bit. From ceremony to reception, this Vancouver “I do” is bursting with pretty moments you can peek in the gallery from Melissa Montgomery Photography for so much more.

From Melissa Montgomery Photography… Norbert and Melissa’s wedding was a mix of vintage elegance draped in colors of purples and greys. The venue was nothing short of spectacular meeting their classy theme all the way that was held at the Shaughnessy Restaurant in Van Dusen Gardens. With a fun wedding party, heartfelt speeches, a slideshow with not a dry eye in the house (including me!) and a bride and groom I felt like I’d known forever, this was one wedding I’ll never forget.

From Ainsley Rose Photography… We loved creating this romantic shoot featuring shades of gold, purple and pink loosely inspired by Scandinavian opulence. To highlight the elegance and modernity of Scandinavian beauty, we opted for a lightly metallic make up look, with softly styled hair. To balance the feminine and glam elements of the shoot, like our stunning Marchesa wedding dress, vintage pink bridesmaid dresses and gold flatware, we chose to shoot in a more rustic, woodland environment. Overall, we loved creating this styled shoot!

Korean Paebaek Ceremony In The Canadian Rockies

The mountains you’re about to see don’t look real, but I promise they are! (See: Emerald Lake Lodge) To match the scenery, every detail is equally vivid and stunning from the yellow bridesmaid dresses the the bold bouquets from Willow Flower Company. Not mention, the Paebaek Ceremony looks beautiful, fun, and moving to boot. Just take a look at Orange Girl’s photographs of the day!

From the Bride and Groom… The inspiration for our wedding was our lifestyle. We’re both fairly outdoorsy and adventurous, and we love the mountains. We like to hike, rock climb, ski, snowboard, etc, and in many ways our relationship developed and matured while we enjoyed these activities together. When we found the Emerald Lake Lodge in Field, BC we knew we had the right venue. It provided a beautiful natural backdrop, easy access to a variety of outdoor activities… plus the rustic charm and touch of refinement we wanted for the event.

Autumn’s favorite memory was a minor wardrobe malfunction as she rounded the corner to walk down the aisle. The emotions started to build as soon as she saw her parents, and as she took her Dad’s arm to walk down the aisle she could already feel her eyes starting to well up. When she turned the corner, her train (or as she called it, her tail) got caught on the fence at the edge of the patio. The snag stopped her dead in her tracks, and she couldn’t help but smile. The incident helped ease her emotions, and the rest of the ceremony was full of big smiles and happy tears.

Advice for those planning a wedding now:
Wedding planning can be a difficult and stressful process. Try to remember that you’re both going through a lot, and be supportive of each other along the way. Take a deep breath every now-and-then, give each other a hug, and thank each other for everything the other has accomplished. Hearing that your husband/wife-to-be appreciates what you’re doing makes it all worth while. When the planning is over and the big day comes, enjoy the moment and savor the memories. Everything may not go perfectly according to plan, but most guests won’t even notice, and the little hiccups along the way will provide you with great memories inside jokes for years to come.

From the photographer… Autumn and Derrick traveled from Seoul Korea to Yoho National Park in Canada for their destination mountain wedding. They included a Paebaek (Korean Tea) Ceremony after becoming husband and wife. The elders of the family were invited to sit. The bride and groom bowed to the elders, poured them a drink, and listened to their marital advice. I found the advice from the elders to be a moving part of the ceremony, what a lovely way to start your married life. The elders would then toss dates into a piece of fabric held up by the bride and groom to symbolize how many children they hoped the newlyweds would have. The bride and groom would then try to deflect some of the dates tossed to a number closer to the number of children they actually hoped to have. This was a particularly funny part of the ceremony.
At the end of the ceremony the groom gave piggybacks to his new wife and his mother-in-law symbolizing the grooms intention to carry/support his new wife and family.
