Romantic + Vintage-Inspired Vancouver Summer Wedding

Meghan and Zach are a couple after my own heart. Why? Partway through planning a traditional wedding, the Bride and Groom looked at each other and decided to start again from scratch—this time planning a wedding that would be the ultimate reflection of them and their love. The result is a day so pretty, not even a little rain could ruin it. See it all thanks to Whitney Krutzfeldt in The Vault!

From Sweetheart EventsMy favourite aspect of this wedding was that they followed no rules and threw tradition out the window to ensure the day was a reflection of them. This wedding had a ceremony at sunset, cocktails with live jazz and baby grand piano on the terrace and an afterparty at the couple’s favourite hangout until the early hours the next morning.

Meghan and Zach fell into the traditional wedding style when they began planning their big day- the ceremony, the cocktail hour followed by dinner buffet reception with head table and round tables scattered throughout. At one point in the planning process, Meghan and Zach looked at each other and asked themselves if this wedding was truly them and what they wanted. They decided to change their overall vision and begin again from scratch; this time it would be the ultimate reflection of them and their love story together. Another reason why I love this couple so much! The style was a mix of romance and vintage with many personal elements and a few jewish traditions. On the day, despite the Vancouver rain, the couple arrived at Hycroft Manor to finish getting ready and prepare for their first look on the terrace (such a great moment!). After the couple shared a few moments alone together they were joined by their wedding party for photo time before an intimate lunch on the terrace with immediate family. We styled the long table with greenery garlands, delicate florals and beautiful calligraphy heart cut place cards and two vintage chairs for the bride and groom. After lunch, the couple continued photos (when the sun peeked out for a bit) while the SHE team transformed the terrace to prepare for the sunset ceremony. Meghan and Zach were married in front of one hundred friends and family as the sun was setting behind the Vancouver mountains with a custom ceremony that was a beautiful reflection of them as a couple and their love story. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed passed canapes, signature cocktails and live music played on a white baby grand piano with many fun filled speeches and toasts. At 10pm (due to noise restrictions) the party wasn’t ready to end so guests were welcomed onto red trolleys with live jazz musicians taking them to Mahony & Sons Coal Harbour for the afterparty for late night snacks, live music and the Hora! This wedding will be one I will never forget.

Art Deco + Bohemian-Inspired Vancouver Club Wedding

This wedding and I, well, it was love at first sight. The Bride’s gorgeous Art Deco-inspired Jenny Packham gown. The pretty pink bouquet filled with proteas as a nod to the Bride’s South African roots. The beautiful geodes at each guest’s place setting to honor the Groom’s profession. All these details, and so much more, combined to make one stunning day. Fall in love, thanks to photos from Christie Graham Photography, in The Vault!

From Spread Love EventsMarried at the regal The Vancouver Club, Caroline and Chad desired a beautiful city wedding, full of class and fun! A couple who loves entertaining and celebrating, they wanted to treat their guests to a intimate evening of fine wine, food, good company and dancing. A nod to her future husband’s profession, Caroline collected beautiful geodes which we styled at each guests place setting. And, in honour of her South African roots, beautiful protea florals took centre stage in her bridal bouquet. A touch bohemian meets Art Deco, we loved balancing fun details such as the geodes, protea florals and gold flatware, with the sophisticated timeless interior of The Vancouver Club. Caroline and Chad got the dance party started with a little help from Clear the floor and the sweetest first dance. They had great moves and so much love for each other.

Romantic Surprise Penthouse Proposal

You know how we feel about surprise proposals, and today we’re kicking off a week long worth of romance with the ultimate ask. Surrounded by 20 (literally) love-filled balloons Daniel asked Kim about forever and the results are beyond sweet. Just Because Vancouver was the visionary behind the scenes and Kim James Photography captured it all to share and we’ve got it waiting for you in THE VAULT!

From Just Because VancouverWhen Daniel reached out to us to plan his proposal, we knew immediately that his over-the-top affection for Kim had to be matched in his surprise engagement. There is no better place than the 48th floor of an $18 million penthouse at Hotel Georgia’s Private Residences. Surrounded by 20 abundantly love-filled Big Love Balls, Daniel stood in the middle of this breathtaking 6,800sqft canvas with sweeping panoramic views. While Kim was obliviously being glammed up for her fake “photo-shoot” in another room, a bouquet of flowers, champagne and hors d’oeuvres were waiting for her on the most romantic balcony in Canada. Daniel wanted something breathtaking – and breathtaking is what he received.

From the Bride-to-be…Late July, my agent Grace had sent me an e-mail confirmation for an upcoming jewelry catalog booking that would be for the brand Olive and Piper, and was set to take place on Wednesday August 12th. The evening before, I packed so many different dresses for the shoot and planned to bring a big 5 pound watermelon for a church picnic after.

On arrival at the Private Residences at Georgia Hotel, I was lead to a room where hair and make-up would take place. I saw signs on the door saying “Make-Up & Hair” and “Photoshoot in Progress”. I was thinking the shoot was set up very professionally! Even more surprising, was when one of my all time favourite make-up artists greeted me, Annie. We both ‘had no idea’ we would be working on this ‘shoot’ together.

When we finally finished, I opened the doors to where the shoot was being held, and noticed massive white blow-up balls that said “love” in bold black letters on them. I stood there, confused. Out of nowhere, my boyfriend showed up from behind one of the Big Love Balls.

Feeling overwhelmed, I saw the most genuine and nervous smile, happy, teary eyes and as he spoke, I heard words filled with so much love. I could barely hear what he was saying, but I knew what was happening. He got down on one knee and I can only pray I said “YES!”. He really got me! What a surprise!

The unbelievable plan was explained to me, how I was ‘punked’ and how the entire shoot was a set up through Just Because Vancouver, a wedding proposal planning company. I was told how it was Daniel receiving my wardrobe photos and selecting the dress I would wear that day. I learned Daniel had went to ask my parents for their blessing the day after I went on my most recent work trip to Singapore. I could not of dreamed of a better surprise engagement. This marks my most treasured and best day alive yet.
