Real Vancouver Wedding: Kelly & Zac

Our day was inspired by the bottle of Champagne that we were given by my parents on the night of our engagement. I loved how the whole day come together beautifully.

Zac proposed to me in Whistler over an amazing dinner out. He had secretly gotten us a hotel up there and had Champagne and strawberries waiting for us when we got back. It was the best weekend ever!

I was blown away by the flowers at our wedding. I described my vision to the florist, and she seemed to get it right away. About a month before the wedding, I went with my mother and mother-in-law to see a few samples she had made for me.

I hadn’t ever heard of a sample showing before, but it allowed us to tweak colours and styles. When I saw the large arrangements on the wedding day I couldn’t believe how beautiful they were. They were even more amazing than I had imagined.

I tried on almost every dress in two stores and was very torn between a more simple, traditional dress and a traditional/modern fusion dress.

Finally I realized that I was a mix of modern and traditional, and my dress should be as well. I loved dress shopping!

I loved the continuity of the Champagne graphic on the invitations, cake, seating chart, etc. It was very meaningful to us.

Our wedding cake had the Champagne graphic piped onto it and looked lovely. We had 3 flavours of cake: vanilla cake with raspberry and passionfruit mousse, chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream, and flourless chocolate cake with sour cherries.

Not only was the cake beautiful, but it was so delicious. I can’t remember having wedding cake that tasted so good!
