Vancouver Wedding Planner. Our brief for this wedding was simple: to create an event incorporating charming DIY elements, while remaining true to the rustic elegance of Britannia Heritage Shipyard and the Chinese Bunkhouse.
Oh, and did we mention that we were on a tight budget and tight timeline? We wanted to focus on the natural beauty of the venue and chose our decor elements to complement the natural wood tones throughout the interior and exterior. To maximize our small decor budget, we did a lot of thrifting and DIY projects such as the pennants, chair ribbons, table runners, and cake-toppers. We wanted the ﬂoral arrangements to have a big impact, but ever mindful of the budget, we focused on creating visual interest and charm by using collections of smaller rustic arrangements with ﬂowers sourced through local urban farmer who happened to grow the brideʼs favourite sweet pea ﬂowers.As it was an afternoon wedding, the reception culminated in a late lunch of organic sandwiches and salads, followed by a dessert buffet of assorted cakes, handmade marshmallows, and fruit from the local farmerʼs market. We felt like the casual simplicity of both the menu and the presentation of the food were a true reﬂection of the coupleʼs style and of the overall theme of the day itself, while remaining true to our mandate of working with local suppliers and producers in the true spirit of a collective.This was K’s wedding and we’re very pleased to be sharing it.
