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!

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.

From the Bride… My new husband and I are medical residents with demanding work lives. We were so overwhelmed with wedding planning that we about to cancel the whole thing, but Nargess and her team at Fleur de Lis Events came to the rescue! She certainly had her work cut out for her: we met (via Skype) 5 months before our wedding date, we were living out of town and would only be back in Vancouver 1 week before the wedding, had very limited time to chat regularly, and were working on a students’ budget. We hired Nargess for Full Planning. During our first meeting on Skype, I was struck by her bubbly energy, creative vision and reassuring demeanor (important for an anxious bride).

Throughout the planning process, were consistently impressed with Nargess’ flexibility, professionalism and thoughtful creativity. She was quick to respond and considerate regarding our erratic schedules. She managed our budget responsibly and we came in on target despite adding 30 extra guests in the end! Her coordination allowed us to participate in just the fun, stress-free parts of planning. Her excellent rapport with her vendor contacts meant we had stunning flowers, beautiful decor and excellent service at a price we could afford. She listened carefully to our ideas for the wedding, enthusiastically researched all options, and added her creative flourishes to design a cohesive “look” for our wedding day.

On our wedding, Nargess and her team ensured that we enjoyed the day with our family and friends; none of us needed to worry about the little details because she discreetly took care of them. She even went above and beyond what was expected: bought the bridal party Starbucks in the morning, handmade lovely (and unexpected!) props for decor, took it upon herself to organize a reception photobooth, and surprised us with a pretty candy buffet in the end. Nargess, thank you SO MUCH for making our day romantic, fun and exactly what we wanted. We absolutely could not have done it without you.

From the Planner… With Karina’s overall theme of pink, and blush, we created an intimate day full of romantic details. In honour of Karina’s background and family tradition, we hosted a Chinese Tea Pouring ceremony which was ever so well received by the brides’ family and other guests.

The wedding ceremony took place at the historic Hycroft Manor, in the heart of downtown Vancouver. The reception was held at the landmark Terminal City Club.

The bride and her father (who is a professional ballroom dancer), performed a truly magnificent dance apres dinner. Guests feasted on 6 course meal, follow by a savoury dessert bar. Vanilla macarons with strawberry filling perfectly wrapped up in the clear box with a monogramed ribbon were given to each guest as thank you (favour).

My personal highlight: Karina & Brandons reaction to the surprise photobooth we set up for them! It was a truly a magical day full of love, laughter, and in good company.
