Gorgeous florals, out-of-the-ordinary reception seating and a unique first-dance location are just a few of the details that gave this classic celebration a modern twist.
Ultra-romantic details set the tone for this Vancouver wedding.
ALYSSA LASERSON & JEFFREY GUNSON MARCH 24, 2018
FROM ALYSSA: We love a classic, traditional look for a wedding, but wanted to include a modern twist. We used 1920s-inspired elements of copper and gold in our decor, with navy blue accents throughout. Florals were kept classic with the use of light pinks, lush greens and soft creams to bring the early spring season to life. Our reception floor plan was a little bit different. I wanted to maximize the space in our venue and create a unique floor plan, so my planner, Jessica of Petite Pearl Events, worked with me to create my dream vision of having an X-pattern floor plan with one dramatic centrepiece in the middle of the X. The seating arrangement allowed guests to feel comfortable while creating an intimate wow-factor statement inside the stunning venue. My dress was a beautiful custom piece created by the talented Joanna Delaney, a local Vancouver designer. The dress was ethereal and
delicate with small amounts of French-lace detail. The open back and flowing chiffon skirt were exactly as I envisioned. The moment
we got to see each other for the first time was unforgettable. As traditionalists, we opted not to have a first look, wanting the first time we saw each other that day to be when the doors opened for our ceremony and I walked with my father down the aisle. On our wedding day, the afternoon sun was perfect and as the doors opened and “Here Comes the Sun” played, it was pure magic. Our
first dance was a beautiful moment. We picked “ILYSB” by LANY, as we felt it described our kind of love and is a song our guests could dance to and enjoy. We decided to have our first dance in the most amazing spot—the balcony of The Permanent building. Our friends and family surrounded us as the twilight glow streamed down through the vaulted stained glass ceiling. It was magical.
