With all the snow in the Lower Mainland this week, it feels like sunny & warm weather was ages ago but it really wasn’t. However, we do wish we could jet away to somewhere 30+ like this gorgeous July day last summer. We had such a great time working with Shannen & Mark to plan their big day! Special thanks to Josh Bowie Photography for these fantastic shots!
Shannen & Mark had their ceremony and reception at the beautiful Inlet Theatre & Galleria in Port Moody. The girls stayed overnight at a beautiful Dockside B&B just down the street and that is where they got ready in the morning. Below are some shots from the B&B. Check out that VIEW!
They had their ceremony out on the lawn where there is amphitheatre seating facing the building. We set out some blankets and pillows for guests to seat on while they watched Shannen & Mark exchange their vows.
We made great use of the beautiful space around theatre by setting up lawn games for guests during cocktail hour and a lounge area with decor provided by Past Pieces.
While guests were enjoying lawn games and cocktails, the bridal party snuck away with Josh Bowie Photography to get some photos. When they stumbled upon this soccer field on their way down to the railway tracks, a little impromptu game of footie took place… with Shannen in net!
Shannen incorporated so many great personal touches into the wedding day. We especially liked their vows with symbols for each line of their vows which they placed in a wooden box and their guest book table with old family photos and guests could fill out their date night ideas.
Bridal Beginnings did a fantastic job with flowers! The bouquets were the perfect pop of colour and we loved the long garland Larissa created for the tables.
Now on to our favourite part… the dessert bar, especially the pies!!! Wow, these chocolate pies were to die for! We will be making regular visits to Spiritual Ingredients Bakery going forward. 😉
The night wrapped up as all good parties do with lots of laughter & dancing!
Thanks so much for letting us be a part of your happily ever after Shannen & Mark!
Special thanks to the amazing team of vendors!
