Elegant + Intimate Stanley Park Wedding

There are very few things in life that we love more than an elegant, intimate Stanley Park wedding crafted by Spread Love Events. Case in point? This ultimate celebration from the lens of Gucio Photography that has got our hearts soaring. From the Bride’s Reem Acra gown to the chic cermony chuppah, we’ve got it all waiting for you to peruse in THE VAULT!

Al Fresco

From Spread Love EventsMeghan and Ira’s wedding was held within Vancouver’s iconic Stanley Park at the Stanley Park Pavilion, an equally iconic, intimate and elegant heritage venue in the city.

Beginning their day at the Fairmont Pacific Rim, the Denise Elliott Hair & Make-up team met Meghan and her 7 bridesmaids to get them ready. Gucio Photography captured Meghan and Ira’s first look in Stanley Park, and all of the details and moments that would follow.

Guests, who traveled from across Canada and the U.S. to attend, were transported to the wedding aboard the historic Vancouver Trolley and arrived for a beautiful ceremony on the lawn of the pavilion. Cocktails followed in the light filled tearoom with dinner on the terrace under a canopy of trees and twinkling lights. Cafe au lait dahlias, garden roses, ferns and jasmine vine decorated the ceremony chuppah, escort display, dessert table, and reception. Lush and romantic, it was a evening to remember!

The Collective You documented all of Meghan and Ira’s gorgeous friends and family, and The Famous Players and Girl on Wax DJ got everyone to their feet. And just to be sure that guests got a very “Vancouver” experience, Japadog provided the midnight snack and The Vancouver Trolly Company returned all the guests home safely! We loved planning this amazing day with Meghan and Ira and hope you enjoy a glimpse at their beautiful wedding, truly a highlight of the summer for us!

One beyond adorable pup and two cuties in love? Doesn’t get much better than this right here.

From the Bride… We decided to decorate our Westfalia camper van for Christmas and take some pictures at one of our favorite local beaches – Spanish banks. The cold weather didn’t stop us from having a winter picnic followed by some fun in the snowy sand. Our photographer, Cindy Hughes from Mudddy Love Photography was beyond amazing and captured everything so naturally. My heart beams with gratitude as I look at these pictures of our sweet soul of a dog, my amazing husband and the anticipation of many more adventures to come in our life together. Joy is what happens when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things are in the present moment. The moments Cindy captured definitely fill our hearts with an abundance of joy and gratitude.

Holiday Bridal Shower Slumber Party

We’ve got bridal shower inspiration aplenty, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one as festively fabulous as this one right here. Complete with adorable planning gifts, calligraphy by Maurelle Calligraphy and treats for days (hello happy bubbly!) it’s got merry written all over it.

From Future Mrs PlannerEngagement season is creeping up on us, and that means one thing: engagement celebrations with your girlfriends! Whether it be a Christmas gathering or a holiday bridal shower, we have the perfect idea for both occasions.

Future Mrs Planner wanted to create something fun and cozy, where the whole bridal party can join in on the gift opening love. Growing up, sleepovers were something we remember doing only as kids, but not anymore! Styled by Taffete Designs, this concept was transformed into a chic Winder Wonderland.

Hanging from the ceiling were strings of “snow” marshmallows, which makes an instant selfie backdrop. A white canopy of fairy lights is draped over 4 best friends in silk robes and nightgowns, looking gorgeous after a beauty session with Tori Blush Co. The talented Kim James captured this bright space to open bridal shower and Christmas gifts perfectly. The bride-to-be, dressed in a silver robe, is gifted with a chic and compact wedding planning agenda called Future Mrs Planner. What makes for a better gift than a way for your best friend to organize her wedding? From the bride, the girls receive stunning jewelry from Olive & Piper’s “OPinLuxe” bridal line to match on the big wedding day.

After opening presents, the girls migrate over to a gorgeous dessert spread by Anna Elizabeth Cakes and Archimallows. Yes, we are just as obsessed with the silver drippy cake and snowflake marshmallows as you are! We are fully taking to heart of Maurelle Design & Calligraphy’s “Baby It’s Cold Outside” sign by warming up the room with cookie garnished Bailey’s and festive champagne drinks. Surrounded by snow-filled Christmas candles and the company of your best friends, sleepovers should definitely happen more often this season!
