Sometimes the best things come in small packages. 😉
Incase this case, Annie & Perry’s intimate backyard wedding. One of my favourite weddings of the summer!
Annie originally wanted a vintage style wedding at a hall in Vancouver for over 100 guests but as the wedding date got closer, she decided she wanted something more intimate and personalized and so they opted for a wedding in her parent’s backyard at their home in North Burnaby.
It was a gorgeous Friday afternoon of the August long weekend and 60 of their closest friends and family gathered to celebrate in the backyard. Annie still was able to incorporate her vintage theme with the table decor, her gorgeous lace gown and the jazz trio. She personalized her special day with a DIY photo booth in the garden, the family dog Norman as the ring bearer, center pieces with photos of their parents and grandparents weddings and to top it off, her brother’s catering company preparing dinner. (which was so beautifully plated and tasted just as good as it looked!) The backyard was transformed from ceremony to reception while guests enjoyed appetizers and iced tea on the front patio and the bridal party and family went to a nearby park for photos. Dinner as I mentioned was catered by her brother’s catering company, Two Peas Catering. For dessert, a summer time staple, watermelon and pie and ice cream! After dinner & desserts, Annie changed into an adorable vintage lace dress with 3/4 sleeves (very Nancy Sinatra!) and then guests danced the night away under the twinkling lights.
It was so special to be a part of such a small intimate wedding and to celebrate Annie & Perry with their amazing group of friends and family. They were all so wonderful and the day was just beautiful!
Annie & Perry, Wishing you both best with this incredible new chapter of their lives and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day! It is one I will always remember.
