Summer 2018 Wedding Highlight Reel
Some of our favourite love stories of the summer With our second wedding season under wraps, we’re taking a look back at some of the magical celebrations of the past summer - each one of them, truly unique and beautiful in their own way.
A true testament to the artistry and skill of our West Coast vendors - and the discerning eye of today’s modern brides; are the photos we see tagged on our Instagram account, as well as published in some of today’s leading bridal publications.
Every tablescape, every room, and every wedding theme was thoughtfully curated and beautifully presented. We loved seeing all kinds of couples, families, locales, and budgets represented as well.
We’ve learned something valuable from every bride, every groom, every bridal party and vendor that we’ve had the opportunity to work with this past season.
So where do we begin?
It was so tough to choose just a few, but we’ve tried to select those which showcase the true range of looks and themes of the season.
Here are just a few of our favourite love stories…
Jonny and Jules at the Pipe Shop at the Shipyards
First (emotional) looks at the reception… thank you to Jonny and Jules for having us be part of your beautiful day.
