We were thrilled that a couple of weeks ago, Sarah and Justin’s wedding was featured on Rock ‘N’ Roll Bride. It seemed like a perfect time to feature them on our blog as well!
Working on Sarah and Justin’s wedding was especially meaningful for me because Sarah is one of our talented Wedding Day Coordinators and I adore her to bits. She has been with us for quite a few years and I was so excited to help her and be there for her on her wedding day as she has been there for so many of our brides.
Sarah did all of her own wedding planning and I helped with her wedding coordination so she could be fully present on the day. I loved watching the wedding design come together as we got closer to the day, as I knew it would be personal. Sarah is crazy talented and very creative. Sarah designed the flowers herself, created all the signs and found all the décor elements such as the giant gold frames for the ceremony backdrop and the rugs. I just love the eclectic, bohemian, art deco feel of her design, it is very Sarah.
Sarah and Justin wanted an alternative wedding that really focused on the parts they cared about most – having a great time with their friends and family, in a relaxed atmosphere and a killer dance party. They wanted to avoid traditions that didn’t resonate with them and keep the ones that did.
Sarah and Justin were married at The Loft in Yaletown. Sarah wore Nicole Miller with a custom headpiece by Olivia the Wolf and Jasmine Hoffman did her make up. Instead of a seated dinner, they had cocktail-style food stations and passed canapes. This added to the fun, relaxed, party vibe. They also cut a pie, made by Justin’s Grandma, instead of a traditional cake. For dancing, their DJ, the talented Michael Fraser, played his violin along to the songs, which was a great surprise that all the guests loved. Everyone danced into the wee hours of the morning, it was truly a wonderful day.
