Silvana + Pawel’s Summer Wedding

Wedding Planning by Alicia Keats | Wedding Photography by Lucida

We are so thrilled to be able to share Silvana and Pawel’s beautiful summer wedding with you this sunny Sunday morning. From the second I met Silvana and her family, I was dying to work with them. It was a perfect fit. We had a great group of creatives on involved in bringing the wedding vision to life starting with Ashley and the team at Bisou Bridal and Love by Phoebe who provided all of the stationary.  Just like today, the weather was perfect for Silvana + Pawel’s wedding. The ceremony was held at the Celebration Pavilion in Queen Elizabeth Park. Nadia add her magic with Silvana’s hair and makeup and Flower Factory did an outstanding job on the flowers….peonies anyone?!

The reception followed in the beautiful ballroom at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel. This is one of my favorite ballrooms, it is bright, light and the service is always outstanding. Upright Decor added some of their magic to really transform the room. The intricate details, soft colours of the floral centerpieces and the ombre macaron cake by Soirette added a delicate feel to the reception. After dinner, guests then danced the night away with SideOne Band. We hope you enjoy taking a look at Silvana and Pawel’s special day. It was such a pleasure to work with them. I wish we could do it all over again!

With Love,

Alicia xoxo

Corinna and Mike’s Shaughnessy Restaurant Wedding

Wedding Coordination by Alicia Keats | Wedding Photography by ShoeBox Photography.

I met Corinna years ago, before she was even engaged. We would chat about my job, what I think makes a beautiful wedding, what she was dreaming of for her wedding and as we were chatting, I would always say to myself, I really hope I can be a part of Corinna’s wedding one day. So you can imagine how excited I was when Corinna reached out to me and said that she was starting to plan her wedding and could I be a part of it. I was ecstatic!

Corinna and Mike wanted an understated West Coast wedding, filled with natural elements and personal touches, great food and most importantly, they wanted to make sure that it was a really good time for their friends and family.

The wedding ceremony took place on the newly renovated patio at Shaughnessy Restaurant in Van Dusen Gardens. The weather could not have been better for a late September wedding as you can see by the magic light ShoeBox Photograhy captured after the ceremony was over. The aisle was lined with garlands of laurel leaves and Posy created two stunning arrangements in birch bark vases for the top of the aisle. The reception was inside the restaurant, with understated touches of rosemary sprigs on each place setting and more beautiful West Coast inspired arrangements by Posy. Hilarious and touching speeches followed throughout dinner. Corinna and Mike opted to cut the pie instead of a wedding cake which was lovingly made by a family member for them. And then it was time to dance and drink the night away. As I watched Corinne and Mike on the dance floor surrounded by their loved ones, I couldn’t help but smile and feel giddy to be able to have been a part of their day after so many years of wishing that I would be.

With love,

Alicia xoxo

A Sweet Granville Island Wedding…

Aurora Buchanan Alicia Keats Weddings and Events

Wedding Planning by Aurora Buchanan | Wedding Photography by Denise Lin

Patty and Will could often be found on Granville Island with their beautiful daughter Emma so naturally that is where they envisioned getting married last summer.

After eight months of anticipation, Patty arrived at the Granville Island Hotel with her bridesmaids to get ready for her wedding day. Emily Cheng Makeup and Hair beautified the ladies in the penthouse suite of the hotel. Once Patty was ready, she put on her stunning jeweled gown, which she bought on a trip to New York, and paired it with her dove grey Manolo Blahnik’s and she was ready for her wedding day.

The intimate ceremony was held in Ron Basford Park followed by a classically styled dinner reception at Bridges Restaurant. Garden Party created soft romantic florals using whites and creams, which complimented the display of candles glowing on the guest table. Bridges created a delicious meal and speeches were entertaining and chocked full of genuine love and tears. Patty loves desserts, she is an amazing baker so of course the dessert table needed to fantastic! All sweet cravings were catered to: chocolate covered strawberries, cupcakes, double stuffed chocolate covered Oreos, hard candies, meringue cookies, mini cakes, cheesecake, Candy Apples, M & M’s and fortune cookies covered in coconut shavings to name a few! Amy of Garden Party Flowers made a floral wedding cake as the centerpiece of the dessert table.

As the party began to really get under way, the setting sun cast a warm glow on all the tables and the dancing began.
