Brianna and Scott infused so many of their loves in their special day captured by Sambajoy. Scott, an avid skateboarder, was able to show off some of his moves during the wedding formals, while the bride who loves converses, gifted a pair for each of her seven bridesmaids. The two also love coffee and doughnuts, so both were served at their beautiful Pitt Meadows, BC reception. The bridesmaids wore varying shades of white, taupe and soft pink and the men were dressed in navy suits. A picture perfect group!

Whenever I receive a wedding from Corrina Walker Photography, I know I’m in for a beautiful wedding. Held at the Priddis Greens Golf Course, Joe and Emma’s vegetarian brunch wedding was full of rustic details, including a table of numerous pies displayed on tree slabs cut from an old apple tree. Guests were treated to jam that was made from 50 pounds of raspberries picked by the couple and their group of friends. It was definitely a labour of love.
Says the bride: Advice for the bride and groom cards were left on the tables for guests to fill out. It was so special to read through all the little notes our guests had left after the wedding. The funniest entry was: the key to a happy marriage is… “Hold hands while cooking because the most important ingredient is love and possibly salt.” The one we held most dear was: The key to a happy marriage is….”a good solid friendship. This will help to get you through all life has to offer.”

Michael Boekestyn of Ballad Photography shares with us an elegant outdoor wedding held at Fantasy Farm in Toronto. Despite being held on a cold day in April, the couple (Johan and Maxime) still managed to have the outdoor ceremony they wanted and Michael was able to capture some beautiful outdoor shots. The reception was an lovely mix of gold and white with pops of pink, and I absolutely love the addition of the chevon sequined linens which added a modern element. And can we make a mention of the bride’s bouquet by Fleurish Design Studio? Love!

I’m always honoured when I get to share the wedding of someone in the wedding industry. Caryn, the owner and lead designer of As You Wish Weddings shares with us her September wedding that is utterly jaw-dropping. The gorgeous barn at Cambium Farms was transformed into a chic affair filled with neutral grays and gold for the bride and pops of peach for the groom. Caryn and Tony definitely succeeded in having their wedding to feel like an end of summer bash. This feature captured by Jessica Bossé Photography was probably in the running for taking the longest to put together because there were so many details that I didn’t want to miss. So inspiring!
Being a wedding planner, I love personal touches, and it was important to me that our wedding included many – my favourite being the tribute to my hometown of South Africa, which is also where were engaged. On the shelves in the barn we included photos we had taken from our trip the year prior, as well as DIY gold spray-painted “big five” animals. Our wonderful florist, Cedar & Stone, added beautiful protea flowers, which are indigenous to South Africa.
Entertainment was another top priority for the day, and we knew wanted it to be memorable and unique. Dueling pianos have been a long-time favourite of ours, and we try to visit a piano bar each time we travel. We are also lucky in that we are regular customers at a bar across from our home that features two talented dueling pianists, whom we now consider our friends. We were so happy they agreed to perform at our wedding, as they added an incredible amount of energy and fun to the party atmosphere, and were truly a highlight of the night!
