From The Bride…When Alon popped the question in a carefully planned surprise New York City proposal it felt like a fairytale. Miranda knew their wedding would have a lot to compete with! When it came time to plan their wedding, there was no question that it would be black tie and a nod to another era. Keeping with their proposal anniversary, the two wed one year to the day on May 22 2016 on an overcast Sunday. The venue they chose was the perfect nod to their nostalgic theme, the classic Fairmont Hotel Vancouver in the heart of their home city, Vancouver, British Columbia. Before the ceremony, the couple chose a nearby rooftop with a contrasting industrial backdrop of their city for their first look. The groom wearing a J.Crew smoking jacket and everything else by Suit Supply. The bride in a lace Maggie Sottero gown she customized by adding long sleeves to and covering a sheer bodice, Jimmy Choo shoes, and pearl earrings. Inside their suite, the Lieutenant Governors’ suite on the top floor of the Hotel Vancouver, the bridal party took portraits and toasted champagne before the ceremony. Miranda’s neutral bouquet was a mix of mostly roses, and peonies with lush cascading greenery tied in a hand-dyed silk blush ribbon. Four Bridesmaids wore Asos lace floor length gowns in navy and carried Juliet roses in their natural bouquets.

Guests assembled in the understated ceremony room decorated with natural blooms and chiavari chairs while a violin and guitar duo played the couples favourite songs, a mix of Drake, Frank Ocean, Elvis and Michael Jackson.

A violin and guitar duo played Frank Ocean’s “Thinking about you” for the Brides’ grand entrance with her dad and step-dad escorting her down the aisle.

The ceremony was short and sweet, and non-denominational, integrating Jewish tradition with the breaking of the glass.

The couple had their first dance as man and wife to Leon Bridges, ‘Coming home’ and through the night, guests sipped on their signature cocktails, hers a lavender lemonade and his an old fashioned.

Guests were given the couples favourite candy from Sugarfina, Champagne Gummy Bears, as favours.

All white centerpieces of peonies, hydrangeas and lush greenery garlands decorated tables along with gold and navy agate accents.

The couple made their getaway with a sparkler sendoff at the end of the evening and will set off for their honeymoon for a month-long Italian getaway in July 2016.

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.
