Wedding Bells (West) - - Real Weddings -

FROM STEPHANIE: A re­laxed and per­sonal day on the West Coast was what we al­ways en­vi­sioned for our wed­ding. We wanted to in­cor­po­rate our lo­ca­tion on the river into our decor by us­ing nat­u­ral woods in our ar­bour, pew mark­ers, cen­tre­pieces and guest favours. My favourite de­tail was ac­tu­ally the back of my dress—when I first saw it at Lisa’s Bridal Sa­lon, I ab­so­lutely fell in love. I adore that the front is sim­ple and el­e­gant but you can see hints of sparkle in the sleeves. Fraser built the ar­bour we used for our cer­e­mony. Our hope is that we will have a yard some­day to put it in. He also made all the per­son­al­ized wooden coast­ers, which our guests used at our wed­ding and then took home. We didn’t have as­signed seat­ing for din­ner be­cause we wanted to cre­ate an en­vi­ron­ment where peo­ple could so­cial­ize and get to know each other. It was so much fun to see the ex­cite­ment on our guests’ faces when a new food sta­tion was served. Our guests are still talk­ing about the mac and cheese bar, and the slid­ers and fries from the food truck. The high­light was see­ing the looks on ev­ery­one’s faces when the minidough­nuts and root beer floats came out for the mid­night snack!
