This cou­ple was in­spired by their mod­ern Van­cou­ver venue to cre­ate a celebration filled with lush green­ery.

FROM LESLEY: Jerry pro­posed one night af­ter work. He asked me to have din­ner with him at Gotham Steak­house, and when I walked into the res­tau­rant I saw a bou­quet of flow­ers on the ta­ble. Af­ter we sat down, he said he had some­thing im­por­tant to tell me, and be­gan to re­call all our times to­gether. He then got down on one knee and popped the ques­tion. Our first choice of venue was an out­door gar­den, but con­sid­er­ing the un­sta­ble March weather, we de­cided to have an in­door wed­ding. Brix & Mor­tar was per­fect be­cause of its glass roof, which let in a lot of nat­u­ral light. The court­yard’s decor and ivy-cov­ered walls matched our wed­ding theme per­fectly. We de­cided on a green­ery theme with ac­cents of white and ivory. We both grav­i­tate to­ward a nat­u­ral, sim­ple look, and we thought the rus­tic and el­e­gant styles com­bined suited us well. I loved all of our decor, but if I had to choose one de­tail I es­pe­cially loved, it would be the sign­ing ta­ble. For me, it sym­bol­ized our new be­gin­ning. We wanted to have a small wed­ding, and since the guests were very close friends and fam­ily, we felt in­cred­i­bly lucky to have them be wit­nesses to our love. One of my favourite mo­ments was our first dance. I changed into a red dress that would be eas­ier for me to move in. Jerry and I only took two dance lessons, just one week be­fore the wed­ding. Ev­ery time Jerry for­got the steps he would kiss me to cover it up. I thought that was hi­lar­i­ously cute!
