Melanie & Chris

Melanie and Chris chose the stunning Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel as their ceremony and reception venue. Evan of Flowerz and his team created a luxurious and elegant ambience with pink, white and blush flowers and décor accents that perfectly captured the vision the bride and groom had for their wedding day. Guests indulged in the edible delights served by the venue and could even try their hand at a few games, including a bean bag toss and a mini-putting green. All the beautiful details were captured by Blush Photography.

Samantha & Spencer Featured in WedLuxe!

Samantha and Spencer’s luxurious wedding atop Grouse Mountain was everything the couple envisioned and more!

The elegant and romantic affair began in a custom-built ceremony tent located on the side of the mountain – the first time this had ever been attempted! The bride and groom said ‘I Do’ surrounded by their closest family, friends, and the awe-inspiring views.

For the cocktail reception, guests lounged on all-white furniture while they enjoyed delicious canapes, signature drinks and live music.

The reception tent covered the entire mountaintop plaza and was carpeted from end to end, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. Guests were heard gasping as they entered the space and absorbed the gorgeous chandeliers and eye-catching florals hanging from the ceiling and the luscious floral arrangements on every table.

The night did not end there! Guests were treated to an espresso bar and custom sundae station before making their way to the dance floor, located inside the mountain lodge, where the Famous Players Band had them dancing in the early hours of the morning.

The very talented Lori Miles of Sweet Pea Photography captured all the details.

We are thrilled to see this wedding featured in the Summer/Fall 2015 Issue of WedLuxe!

Iris & Andy Featured in Real Weddings

When Iris & Andy moved up their wedding date and were left with weeks to plan their wedding instead of months, they turned to DreamGroup Productions to pull off their vision of an elegant and delicate affair.

Christie and her incredible team did just that with a pink and white colour scheme that took the couple’s breath away and left their friends and family in awe.

The couple were married in the Spanish Ballroom Promenade of the Rosewood Hotel Georgia standing under a glittering chandelier which hung from a four post structure draped in beautiful white sheers. The ceremony was followed by an exquisite four-course lunch reception surrounded by stunning floral arrangements and décor details by Flowerz. All the details were captured by Kaoverii Marapon of Hera Films.

Iris & Andy’s stylish wedding is currently featured in Real Weddings’ Fall/Winter edition.
