Backyard Bliss is Chic + Intimate in Vancouver…Alexa + Keith are all over the classic beauty of friends and family, celebrating their love together and creating lifelong memories. We loved the vibe of this lovely wedding so much we featured it in our Vancouver 2021 magazine!

The story of this Vancouver wedding day starts with Alexa and her incredibly beautiful gown. The back has a stunning drop balanced by the ruffled sleeves and V neckline. A simple veil is added from her graceful updo to complete her bridal style.  We love the elegance of her drop earrings and bracelets. Not to be forgotten are the pretty blush pink slip ons! Her Wild Bunch bouquet features orchids, roses, and dried grasses. Her groom follows her impeccable style lead in a charcoal grey suit and sporting a grass and floral boutonniere.

The ceremony brought a tear or two to everyone’s eyes as the couple exchanged vows. Afterward, guests enjoyed a bounty of wonderful cuisine (love the plate piled high with autumn foods!), and everyone drank to the newlyweds’ happiness. We especially loved the backyard bliss reception table that epitomized a west coast wedding. The square table boasted deep reddish peach and blush flowers, artfully arranged at the table center, with the white taper and votive candles illuminating all the beauty. The chic and intimate supper was lit from above by cafe lights strung through the trees.

The last few years show us just how much couples pivoted when it came to their weddings. The upside to it all is experiencing ceremonies and receptions that were all about the commitment of vows given in front of close family and friends. The beauty of choosing how just one reception supper table would look, feel and taste. And the memories of this caught by the camera lens. Much to the surprise of most of us, these weddings created from necessity became exceptional by choice. Alexa + Keith’s is obviously one of those evenings where love and happiness were on the proverbial menu!
