British Columbia Beach Wedding

Beach Weddings

Photos by:

This Canadian wedding from Erin Wallis Photography is full of the creamiest pastels, frilly wedding cakes, and beach-y beauty beyond our wildest imaginations. Everything about this wedding is right out of our wedding dreams, from the bridesmaids dressed in white to the waterside ceremony.

From the bride, Steph: We met through a mutual friend but had our first kiss on the Lucky Bar dance floor in Victoria. We are both super into music, so when we lived in Victoria we went to Lucky Bar almost every Saturday. We always try to go to Lucky Bar when we are back in town with all of our friends and had our going away party there when we moved to SF.

We chose Tofino because its our favorite place to get away on the west coast. We go there a few times a year to surf, spa and get away from the city. We have been going there since we met and both really love it there. I think we both knew we would always get married there and wanted to share its beauty with our friends and family.

The wedding palette was really inspired by my dress. I found it online right when we got engaged and the blush color and simplicity of it really inspired the entire wedding theme.

We wanted the environment to feel rustic and truly west coast, so we used elements like wood risers, natural textures, wild flowers, and had lavender scented candles that made the whole room smell amazing.

Our reception venue had huge vaulted ceilings, so to make it feel more intimate we strung globe lights throughout the whole hall. The guys got really creative with this, as we weren’t allowed to string anything from the roof. It turned out amazing and created a romantic feeling of being outdoors.

My favorite part of the day was standing at the top of the stairs overlooking the beach with my dad right before we walked down the aisle. It was a really calm moment where I could overlook the whole ceremony and see everyone I love gathered on the beach to celebrate with us. I thought I would be nervous, but when Bon Iver’s “Holocene” came on, and we started to walk down the aisle, everyone else faded away and I was filled with excitement and happiness that I was about to marry the man of my dreams in the most beautiful place in the world.

From Erin Wallis Photography: She’s a little shy, super sweet and oozes stylish awesomeness. He’s sincere, genuine and makes you want to know more. When I arrived and laid eyes on Steph’s blush colored Ivy and Aster dress, and the bridesmaids white dresses, I almost jumped out of my skin with excitement. Everything was dreamy. They were married at a low tide on Tofino’s picturesque South Chesterman beach. Living in San Francisco they would venture to Tofino as often as possible, to surf, spa and relax. They both knew they would always get married there as they wanted to share its beauty with friends and family. Exactly as imagined they were surrounded with the adoring eyes of their cherished family and friends. They wound up with the most magical wedding weather combination in history. Sunshine and fog. Perfectly West Coast. Perfectly dreamy and so well suited to their sweet, whimsical wedding. It was a wedding that brilliantly displayed that with your wedding, anything is possible.

Tofino, BC comes with a distinct air of magic, and coupled with the intense love of a stunning couple… amazing florals, the thoughtful and whimsical colours, raw oyster bar, photo booth and a seriously fun wedding party… it was a combination that dreams are truly made of. Everything was executed flawlessly even the details out of their control, the fog rolling in around their ceremony, the sunlight peeking through at them at all the right moments and the surfers riding the waves in the background. A breathtaking reflection of such a laid back, meaningful and romantic celebration of a truly unique and lovely couple.

Heirloom and Lace Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

Haley and Jon wouldn’t let a little sprinkling of rain put a damper on their wedding day — far from it, in fact. Looking at these images from The Life You Love, you’d never even know there was a drop from the sky! Jessica of Something To Celebrate worked with the bride to create a truly intimate family affair, resulting in a gorgeous wedding day full of smiles, lace, and some seriously awesome details.

From the coordinator, Jessica of Something To Celebrate: When I first met with Haley and her mom, Marla, they spoke fondly of their family farm, where they would have loved to host Haley and Jon’s wedding celebration. Our goal was to create that comfortable but intimate family farm feel, but at a location convenient to overnight accommodations, transportation, air travel, etc.

Drawing from the family farm appeal, we created an “heirloom and lace” theme for Haley and Jon’s wedding. The family wedding pictures, antique keys, and personalized items such as the bottle-stick aisle markers created by the groom, brought a familiar comfort to the atmosphere of this wedding, while the vintage floral vessels, handkerchief wedding invitations, and Marla’s collection of lace kept the wedding design light and delicate.

Although rain sprinkled their wedding day, Haley and Jon were married outside, beneath a canopy of fresh babies breath, and joyfully recessed to Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire.” Wedding guests enjoyed celebrating with food, drinks, dancing, and a dessert display complete with a scoop of ice cream to top it off. The night ended as Haley and Jon were driven away in the groomsman’s vintage car.
