Poet’s Cove Wedding Romance of Alexandra and Michael! This celebration showcased the very best of this resort and marina on Pender Island. Friends and family were able to gather round the couple in this secluded and tranquil spot. We love that we first saw this wedding when searching for the perfect photo for Poet’s Cove to use in wedding advertising. It was not a hard decision once we saw the shot of these two kissing at the end of the pier with the beautiful boats and scenery behind!
The bride and groom had their ceremony and dancing out on the terrace with the view of the marina just beyond. The waterfall beside them was the perfect backdrop. They chose to have their reception in the Seaglass Ballroom which was filled with decor by the bride. The resort chefs wowed guests with a delicious BBQ Buffet and kept the glasses filled throughout the evening. (Did we mention the bride works at the Driftwood Brewery and was able to bring a few kegs for the special occasion – talk about connections!) The newlyweds and their guests danced under the sky and strings of cafe lights.
The real star of this show, besides the couple themselves, was the bridal gown! The Truvelle dress was just perfect for the sea side wedding. It featured a ballerina bodice attached to a voluminous white on white patterned skirt. The portrait was complete with the bouquet and flower crown of white blooms, delicate ferns and eucalyptus. The groom looked dashing in his blue suit and boutonniere.
The newlyweds had a wonderful photo session around the marina and resort including the forest area nearby. Their sense of fun imbues their romantic photos with flirting and laughter. We love that these two had a Poet’s Cove Wedding Romance and it’s an West Coast inspiration.
