As Carly of LouLou Weddings tells me, “these two were seriously fated to find one another”. Jill and Justin’s parents always joked that their kids would get married if by chance they lived in the same city (Jill from Winnipeg and Justin in Ontario). They happened to meet by chance after Justin moved to Winnipeg and after realizing their parents knew each other, they dated in secret, waiting for the right moment to surprise both sets of parents. So it’s pretty exciting that I get to share this love story along with the images from their beautiful Fort Gary Hotel wedding. Captured by Luckygirl Photography and planned by LouLou Weddings, Jill and Justin’s wedding is the perfect blend of glam and elegance, filled with luscious pink and ivory blooms and touches of glitter. You will love it.
Says Carly: “Their wedding was a vision of classic elegance, with a few sparkly and personal touches thrown in. Drawing from a color palette of blush pink, gold and ivory, fluffy florals covered the champagne-silk-draped rectangular tables, dotted with floating candles to create an intimate atmosphere. Gold sequins covered the head table, as well as the cake table that held an equally-sparkly and elegant cake. Jill was always nicknamed “Jilly Bean”, so some blush pink jelly beans were utilized as a unique but still on-theme decor feature!
Jill and Justin have saved the corks from every bottle of wine or champagne they enjoyed on special occasions, so all the guest place cards were held by personalized corks.
The historic Fort Garry Hotel was the perfect classic venue for the swanky reception. Amazing food, followed by speeches and then dancing to a live band had people dancing til the lights came on.
It was such an honor to be a part of Jill and Justin’s amazing day. Some of my most memorable moments were Jill’s father shedding a few heartfelt tears right before they went down the aisle, delivering a letter to Jill from Justin that he had written years prior, on the day he knew he wanted to marry her (AWW!) and seeing the bride and groom’s faces light up when they saw their reception room for the first time. It was a day filled with beauty and love, and it was a privilege to help them make their vision a reality!”

I am pretty sure you’ve been aching for some new wedding inspiration. Today’s feature definitely doesn’t disappoint. It’s a beautiful pink and yellow wedding held at the Riverway Golf Course in beautiful Burnaby, BC. Captured by Denise Lin Photography and planned by Niche Events, Erin and Taylor’s wedding is just full of pretty and rustic details. I am absolutely smitten with the wood planks used as reception table runners, the use of multiple centerpieces and of course, the lace detailing on her dress. Gorg!

Sarah of Sarah Sharpe Photography just has a talent for making everything she captures pretty. Held at the Cambridge Mill, Tim and Maria’s wedding was beautifully blush and white.
Says Sarah: Tim + Maria are the epitome of selfless. They both worried about each other more than themselves, and they definitely wanted their guests to be well taken care of too! Their beautiful day was such a joy from beginning to end. Maria is so effortlessly gorgeous and her color choices of blush, white and gold, plus the stunning details made photographing everything a dream. They represent young love, hardly able to keep their hands off one another. Bubbles were literally floating in the air as these two said I do, and a beautiful kiss to seal to deal. A spread of delicious treats greeted their guests, along with an evening of touching speeches and dancing like you wouldn’t believe! Surrounded by candle light, in the underground stone walls of The Cambridge Mill, it was truly a magical evening!

I am totally smitten with today’s featured wedding captured by Will Pursell Photography. Held on the Vancouver North shore at the Capilano Golf & Country Club, Carrie and Steve had a candlelight dinner overlooking the breathtaking downtown Vancouver skyline, a venue Carrie’s parents were also married. Planned by Modern Mint Events, there are boundless details that you’ll definitely appreciate.
Says Will: Carrie and Steve had their full wedding at the Capilano golf course on the North shore of British Columbia. They had awesome details though out the day and included lots of personal touches. They included their french bulldog in the outdoor wedding ceremony as well as a butterfly release to symbolize their new life together. Their outdoor reception included a long banquet style table fitted with real candlelight all the way down the table. It seated all the guests with amazing views of downtown and the rest of Vancouver.
