DIY Eco-Friendly Burnaby Rowing Club Wedding

When a DIY wedding is done right, it’s good. And this one is great. You can feel the love the couple put into their big day, and see the beauty in every single detail. This wedding from Love Tree Photography is my favorite kind of wedding – beautiful, heartwarming, and fun.

Don’t forget about this amazing film!

From the beautiful bride… It was hard to find a ceremony location that fit our vision. We wanted something outdoors, obviously as that’s our favourite place to be. We had hoped to be near water, but also near the forest. I think we hit the jackpot by choosing our location because not only does it happen to be one of our go-to places to hike, it incorporated all our favourite things! We were surrounded by nature and I couldn’t have imagined getting married any where else.

We wanted an outdoorsy and laid back theme to our wedding because that’s the kind of people we are. We did almost everything ourselves, and bought most of our decor from various people on craigslist, or found things for free. We love being in the forest, so obviously we wanted to use that as the inspiration for our theme. We kept it very natural by using lots of wood and glass. We tied in our love of camping into the theme by actually “tying the knot” out of rope, having lanterns light our isles, and my favourite detail would have to be our old rusty saw that Jeff painted “Mr & Mrs” onto.

I am more than satisfied with our day. Yes, it was a lot of work to have a DIY wedding, but we had so many people pitch in to help out it was really a group effort. Every moment was honestly the best part of my day, it was absolutely perfect. If I had to pick one moment it would be something that had been completely out of my control. During the ceremony we had a bald eagle flying overhead. Now that may not seem like much to some, but to us eagles represent those who have passed on, and having that eagle show up felt like a message from our loved ones that they were there with us.

From the Bride...We wanted to capture the essence of the Persian culture by adding our own personality to the entire wedding. A heart-warming traditional Persian ceremony, followed by the never-ending energy and music on the dance floor from start to finish, a delicious feast offering a variety of different foods, and the range of changes in the Weather (from showers in the morning, to rainbows and a gorgeous sunset overlooking the green golf fields) would capture the most beautiful day of our lives.

White along with Fuscia pink and purple. We wanted a rich color that would contrast well against the white which represents purity. The Fusica pinks and purples brought life and vitality to the wedding. The dangling orchids above our head (on the mantle) all in white, represented our new life as husband and wife.

Vintage North Vancouver Wedding

The vision behind this day was simple – a relaxed, fun, romantic “I do” with dinner and dancing underneath the stars. And with Spread Love Events working hard behind the scenes, the day turned into that plus soooo much more. Sweet Heirloom Photography caught every perfectly planned detail, and it’s all waiting right over here.

From Spread Love Events… One of my favourite things about our work, and a privilege I will never tire of, is the opportunity we enjoy to get to know our clients and share in creating one of the most memorable days of their lives. Danielle and Sam share the kind of love we all hope for, the family and friends that surrounded them on their wedding day were simply amazing and if needed I would have swam across the inlet for them – I wanted their day to be perfect and in the end, it exceeded even our expectations. It was spectacular!

With many guests traveling all the way from Australia and around the world, Danielle and Sam wanted to provide their friends and family with a true West Coast experience. Guests boarded boats in Coal Habour and enjoyed a cruise up Indian Arm to arrive at a private residence in the Woodlands of Deep Cove in North Vancouver, a place Sam spent his summers growing up and which held great significance to both Danielle and Sam. The event details were designed to enhance the beautiful natural environment and property. Natural greenery and soft florals in cement vases dressed up linen covered long tables under a clear tent strung with globe lights in the evening. Guests enjoyed a pre-ceremony cocktail reception while listening to the sweet sounds of Dave Ward Music, followed by a ceremony and West Coast inspired dinner by the sea. The bride and groom had their first dance under the stars, following which I don’t think Danielle left the dance floor for a moment! The evening ended with a sweet sparkler send-off for the bride and groom, and guests sailed home.

From the Bride… Our wedding and reception took place at a private home on the Indian Arm in North Vancouver, Canada. The Indian Arm is a fjord at the base of Mount Seymour (a ski mountain) that pours into Vancouver Harbour. The home is situated within a provincial park, with the water on one side and lush green forest on the other. The location is very special to us as Sam has spent every summer there since he was born, and we have spent every summer there together since we met.

Sam and I met at law school in Sydney, Australia where we now both work as lawyers. One day Sam overhead me talking to a classmate about applying for an exchange at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, where Sam did his undergraduate degree. Sam joined the conversation and soon after asked me out to dinner. We’ve been dating ever since! Little did we know that before we met we had each had been admiring the other from afar during classes!

Our vision for our wedding and reception was a relaxed, fun, romantic and joyful event for the more than 100 guests who attended, including over 30 from Australia and others from the UK, US and all over Canada. We wanted an outdoor ceremony, followed by drinks, dinner and dancing all under the stars, so that guests could take in the breathtaking natural beauty of the area.

The wedding day was, quite literally, the best day of our lives. We both had high expectations, and it exceeded all of them. Throughout the day we kept looking at one another and saying “this cannot get any better!” It is impossible to list all of our favourite moments, but a few include: watching all the guests arrive by boat from Vancouver Harbour; Sam’s sister and her partner playing guitar and singing “our song” for the ceremony procession, singing a special song written just for us over dinner and then joining with Danielle and other friends and family later in the evening to play our first dance; meaningful and entertaining speeches from family and friends; seeing all of our Canadian, Aussie, British and American family and friends (most of whom had never met before) partying together on the outdoor dance floor; and many guests jumping off the dock to cool down at the end of the end of the night (father of the bride and groom leading the charge!)
