A Sweet Granville Island Wedding…

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.

Amanda + Brian, Fairmont Pacific Rim Wedding

real weddings

Earlier this year, it was my pleasure to work with Amanda + Brian. They celebrated their marriage at the Fairmont Pacific Rim in downtown Vancouver. Their wedding needed to be filled with Jewish traditions, it had to be fun, have amazing food and there needed to be dancing! Lots of dancing! I am thrilled to say we succeeded on all parts. If you missed my earlier post about Vincent + Theo’s highlights of the wedding you can see it here. I think Wade did an outstanding job of capturing the dancing and atmosphere, you can tell it was a party! It is worth noting that the party didn’t stop when the band was done, the party continued into the wee hours of the morning with a killer after party complete with a nacho station.

The day was a whirl wind of excitement and celebration; I was honored to be a part of it. I was lucky to work beside Flower Factory, Upright Decor, Ariana Q, Famous Players Band and many more talented people, including the spectacular Jonetsu who took all these beautiful images below.

If you would like to see more from this wedding it is featured on the Real Weddings Magazine blog.

With love, Alicia

Happy Anniversary, Sonia + Adam

Photos by the one and only: Jonetsu Studios. This wedding is featured in the current issue of Real Weddings Magazine.

JonetsuIt is hard to believe that one year ago, almost to the day, Sonia + Adam were getting married. It was such a honour to be a part of their special wedding day. There are few people as sweet, genuine, kind and warm hearted at Sonia and I think that Camille and Chadwick’s beautiful photos capture her loveliness perfectly.

Sonia and Adam were married in a Catholic ceremony at St Francis de Sales Parish in Burnaby. A beautiful reception followed, designed by Art of the Party, at the Westin Bayshore. Some of my favorite details included the flowers because they were designed and made by Adam’s mother, the circular bar in the cocktail reception which had a 18 foot cheery tree in the middle of it, the lounge which was hidden behind a garden wall until the dance floor was revealed later in the evening (and included cotton candy, a dessert table to die for) and of course the delicious Italian feast! Sonia took great care to ensure her wedding was a memorable experience for her guests. She included an Elvis impersonator, a photo booth, an espresso station, glow rings for all of the guests during the dance party, and the best late night food any tipsy guest could wish for.

Happy Anniversary Sonia + Adam, I wish you so much happiness and love for all of your future anniversaries to come.

With love, Alicia
