From The Bride…I had always dreamed of an outdoor setting for our wedding, and take advantage of the gorgeous Vancouver Summers. We were lucky enough to find a venue that allowed an outdoor ceremony in the garden, cocktail hour on the terrace, and a full dinner on the terrace.
Coral, blush, and white, flowers paired wonderfully with the gold accents and coral bridesmaid dresses. The overall feel was romantic and had a vintage touch. As the evening light dimmed the outdoor dinner setting under the stringed cafe lights was gorgeous and exactly what I wanted. Both Brian I wanted to be sure all our guests had an amazing night. The overall setting and our band did not disappoint!
Thank you to everyone who made our date what it was! For all our friends and family who supported us along the way, to all of our out of town guests from across the world we so enjoyed seeing, and to Brian’s parents and grandma for their contributions and support. Thank you to my parents who were so generous in hosting the dinner, bar, attire and décor, you helped make the night perfect! Also to all the talented vendors that made everything pull together and made my vision come to life.

From Epic Events…Naomi and Gavin chose to have a laid-back, super chic, garden party to celebrate their love! Naomi spend countless hours curating the perfect touches and details for their wedding. From Etsy to BHDLN, no details forgotten. They started their day with 200 guests joining them for a lunch time ceremony and reception at London Heritage Farms. Guests were welcomed by a custom watercolor guest book painting that was created by friends of the bride. Guests were encouraged to write their names on the colorful bunting.
After a personalized ceremony conducted by a long-time friend of the family, Pastor Mark Johnson, guests were treated to games and lunch in the gardens of the farm. Food trucks hold a special place in Naomi and Gavin’s heart. While they were dating, they were working a few buildings apart in downtown Vancouver. They would regularly meet for lunch and pick a food truck to visit and find some steps to sit on to eat. It was an obvious choice when selecting a lunch time caterer to pick for their favorite food trucks and serve their favorite dishes to their guests. So after picking up their fresh, local food, guests sat on picnic blankets in the shade or at picnic tables to enjoy!
In the evening, Naomi and Gavin had a more intimate cocktail dinner for their immediate friends and family at Gavin’s parents beautiful private residence. Under patio lighting, guests were treated to a fully catered reception. Lanterns lit the way around the garden and they had provided a beautiful (and delicious!) dessert buffet with cozy places to sit and enjoy the food and music.
