UBC Boathouse Wedding for Ruby and Roy…whose wedding was full of fun, laughter, family, beauty and lots of ethnic foods! This modern couple’s day showed off their bigger than life personalities but also showcased traditional foods. Ruby and Roy, along with their friends and family, were among the last to party the night away before COVID-19 shutdown took place in March 2020. We are talking hours, folks! So this couple spent the week before their wedding unsure if it would even take place and had to change their honeymoon plans at literally the last minute. They kept their spirits up with the thought of the guests who were able to come and that this will be something they will talk about the rest of their lives!!

Ruby found her lace, form fitting gown with train and veil in Victoria and chose to have gorgeous tropical flowers in her bouquet and reception flowers. Burgundy calla lilies and orchids along with blush pink and white roses created a bold floral design which carried through the reception decor. We loved the hair crown which was placed at the back of the bride’s spectacular braided and loosely curled hair. Her bridesmaid complemented in a burgundy, full length gown and flowers in her hair. This wedding featured quite the stylish groom who wore a blue grey dinner jacket with black lapels and black bow tie. Bride shows off wedding ring wearing lace form fitting gown with veil

The bride and groom had their couple photo session at Queen Elizabeth Park…where the sun cooperated by shining through the trees at just the right moments. While they were enjoying time with their photographer over forty of their friends were working to create the entire wedding reception in less than two hours. Tables and chairs were placed while the next team put on linens, placed settings and created table centerpieces. Ruby’s father, Jordan, had cut log rounds of all sizes for the reception and glass vases with floating candles were placed on top of each with eucalyptus and blush roses tucked around. (We loved the small log round giveaways burnt with the couple’s names!) A Vancouver ceiling decor specialist worked around everyone hanging a white fabric treatment and industrial lights.

The head table decor reached from one end of the 24 ft table to the other with over 50 glass vases, 100 glass candle holders and 35 log rounds of various sizes. Blush roses and eucalyptus finished the candle lit look while the Vancouver water front was the backdrop. Guests ate while watching a spectacular sunset onto the water through the glass walls.  Roy’s family and friends brought in entire roast pigs and, what seemed like endless amounts of Philippine traditional cuisine.

Ruby and Roy took advantage of the setting sun and walked along the water front edge together catching some spectacular couple shots. Afterwards, they and their guests danced knowing it would be the last party for a very long time. This UBC Boathouse Wedding for Ruby and Roy will be a wedding that everyone will remember!
