Nautical Inspired Rowing Club Wedding in Vancouver

Warning: there’s a 100% chance you might spend the rest of your day here. For starters, you know how we love a mismatched bridal party and the fact that these ‘maids all found their gowns on different continents only goes to show that style can be found anywhere. It’s the type of day where you’re bound to fall in love with every detail and thanks to Whitney Krutzfeldt it’s all waiting in THE VAULT!

From The Bride…Booking the Vancouver Rowing Club for our ceremony and reception venue really helped solidify our wedding theme, which I described as “A bit of Gatsby on a sailboat”. Growing up on the West Coast of BC, Brendon and I both love being on the water and we wanted the coast to come through the look and feel of the wedding. We also wanted to incorporate how important our family is, so a lot of our decor was borrowed from family. Some of the brass candlesticks came from my aunts and grandmother. We also used a lot of my late step-mother’s nautical decor, which was a special way to have her with us on our day. We were also lucky enough to have my step-dad marry us, it made for a very loving and personal ceremony.

For the reception, I wanted long tables to emphasize a family dinner in a relaxed but romantic setting. Every little part of our day came together beautifully because of the attentive venue staff, our amazing caterers (the crab cakes!) and beautiful florals. The overall look was exactly what we pictured.

I loved my dress by Australian designer, Anna Campbell, easy to wear with a bit of sparkle. The bridesmaid dresses were all different, bought separately and across continents! The long navy look came together really well, for all seven of them and worked well with the the groom and groomsmen’s grey suits.

I think the highlight for me were the speeches, Brendon’s impromptu black flip! and the beautiful west coast sunset on the dock. Brendon and I could not have wished for a better day and a more perfect celebration. And no rain! Even in the hottest summer on record in Vancouver, you never know!

There is nothing more precious than welcoming a sweet bundle of joy into the world, and this “lunar designed” soiree to celebrate Luna’s first 100 days was filled to the brim with the perfect little details. The chic party was planned by CountDown Events with former Bachelorette, Jillian Harris, for her assistants newborn, baby Luna and took place in the Halo Suite at the Loden Hotel in Vancouver, Canada. From the delicate paper stars falling from the ceiling to the custom cake with moons and stars cascading from the top, to the “I love you to the Moon and back” stationery, the party was a pinterest worthy celebration. The details didn’t end there, even DIY elements such as the lovely floral ice cubes by our CountDown Events staff for the champagne added a feminine note to the momentous occasion.

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!
