Victoria Wedding Planner: Nikki + David

Blush Magazine Edmonton

Nikki + David’s wedding was held at Hatley Castle in Victoria, B.C., which is where many famous movies and TV shows have been filmed, including X-Men and Deadpool. The property and gardens are absolutely stunning – it was truly a fairytale setting.

This wedding was full of unique and personal details stemming from our very creative Bride. One big “first” for us was the feline flower girl. “Catsie” travelled all the way from Edmonton to Victoria to star as Nikki + Dav’s flower girl. Not only did she wear a dress, but she was pushed down the aisle by the Ring Bearer in a flower-covered pram!

After the ceremony guests enjoyed refreshments and were able to walk around and take in the gardens. There were tours of the castle offered, lawn games, and a cocktail reception on the terrace complete with a live jazz band, vintage lounge seating and a cigar bar.

Nikki designed all the stationery herself, including fan programs for the ceremony and escort cards hung from mini bottles of La Marca Prosecco which doubled as guest favours. A 5-tier cheese wheel cake adorned with grapes and figs took the place of a traditional wedding cake.

Featured in the current issue of Blush Magazine, this unique Victoria destination wedding is not to be missed!

Bouquet Inspiration: Romantic

So far we’ve looked at Classic White Bouquets and Bright + Bold Bouquets. Today it’s all about romance!

Lush peonies, full-blown roses and soft pastel colours exude luxury and romance in these JBW bridal bouquets. These talented florists created a beautiful balance between feminine florals and delicate hints of greenery or dusty miller to add texture. To finish your romantic bouquet, add flowing ribbons, brooches or satin and lace handles.

Victoria Wedding Planner: Megan + Peter

Two of my closest friends were married in Victoria last fall, and I had the honour of playing double duty as wedding planner and guest! The seaside ceremony and intimate reception were held at Brentwood Bay Resort & Spa – a luxurious getaway named one of the Top 10 Resorts in Canada by Condé Nast Traveler.

I could go on and on about this one, but I’ll let Jesse Holland’s beautiful pictures do the talking instead – enjoy!

Pender Island Wedding Planner: Stephanie + Clark

The term destination wedding typically conjures up images of a sandy ceremony in a sunny locale. But you don’t have to look too far to find amazing destinations right here in Canada. Pender Island is one of the Southern Gulf Islands along the Pacific Coast of British Columbia – and let me tell you, it’s spectacular.

WedLuxe Magazine FeatureStephanie + Clark were living in Halifax during the entire planning process, but through many emails and Skype calls we worked together to plan their dream wedding at Poets Cove Resort & Spa. As guests were travelling to Pender Island from all over the country, Stephanie + Clark wanted their wedding to reflect the destination as well as their own personal styles. ‘West Coast Chic’ describes a perfect pairing of elegant and luxurious décor with coastal elements such as driftwood, twine and nautical stripes.

Stephanie was a dream bride to work with! She has impeccable taste and put the utmost trust in each and every one of her wedding professionals, allowing us to do what we do best.

We are thrilled that this gorgeous wedding was featured in the Winter/Spring 2012 issue of WedLuxe Magazine. Enjoy the photos below taken by the so-very-talented C.J. Scott Photography.

Stephanie’s bridal look was exquisite! She wore ‘Dorothy’ by Vera Wang – a stunningly beautiful ballgown with hand-painted flowers on the tulle skirt and a jaw-dropping band of ‘bling’ across the neckline. Her hair and makeup were styled by Sharon Rai Hair and Makeup Artistry and Elsa Corsi designed her jewellery. Nude Christian Louboutin pumps completed the look.

Verbena Floral Design Victoria

Verbena Floral Design created the gorgeous bouquets and flower arrangements. I was so impressed with Vanessa and her team’s dedication to making sure every bloom looked perfect. I can’t wait for another opportunity to work with them again!

The stationery suite was designed by Jenelle at Pinkpolka Wedding Design. From the ‘ferry ticket’ Save the Date to custom postage and monogrammed welcome bags, every detail was perfectly coordinated to reflect Stephanie + Clark’s wedding style.

The ceremony was held on Poets Cove’s terrace facing the picturesque harbour. Rose petals and grand birch bark arrangements lined the aisle, while guests kept cool with ceremony program fans.

Clark was dashingly handsome in his Tom Ford tuxedo from Holt Renfrew. The bridesmaids wore ivory knee-length gowns by Melissa Sweet, tied with a black sash. They each carried a different bouquet composed of a flower used in Stephanie’s bouquet, representing the distinct roles they play in her life.

Stephanie looked breathtaking! She was a perfect bride – poised, elegant and classically styled. Clark cleaned up pretty well himself!

The reception décor carried through the ‘West Coast Chic’ theme. Walnut chiavari chairs contrasted beautifully with ivory Wilshire Stripe linens. Place cards were wrapped and tied around individual menu cards that sat atop ivory napkins and chocolate weave charger plates. The centrepieces were a lush combination of hydrangeas, roses, dahlias, lisianthus, stock, dusty miller and freesia. Birch bark containers, driftwood and ferns added rustic coastal elements to the romantic décor. A 3-tier vanilla buttercream cake sat amongst a table of freshly baked cookies which were later served with cartons of milk as a late night treat.

Guests held sparklers for the newlyweds’ first dance – a custom mash-up by DJ Clinton featuring Train’s Marry Me and Keith Urban’s Without You. A flare bartender served signature martinis with style while the dance party continued in the ballroom. Pink LED uplighting flooded the space with colour and energy, and Stephanie + Clark were delighted with a surprise flash mob performance to Party Rock Anthem coordinated by the wedding party!
