Julia & Ian’s wedding at Brock House Restaurant was amazing. I think I cried about 6 or 7 times throughout the day at all of the love and tenderness that was surrounding this marvelous couple. (If I’m totally honest with you, I also cried a few times working on the photos too!) The tent at Brock House was bursting at the seams with joy. It was awesome for us to witness Julia & Ian’s loving glow.
Ian told his cousin Mike when he was 9 years old that he would drive to his wedding in his grandpa’s MG and he did it! I’m so lucky that I got to share that drive with him. (Thanks, Ian!)
We arranged a first look for Julia & Ian which was a sweet moment. Julia was so cute jumping for joy when she first saw Ian. We loved too how Julia & Ian walked into their ceremony together. During the ceremony under the big beautiful tree at Brock House they had readings from “The Velveteen Rabbit” and “Oh the Places You’ll Go“, which were lovely. (Yup, I cried!) The joyful way that Julia yelled out “I do!” during the ceremony was absolutely awesome.
Julia & Ian had lots of personal touches in their wedding. Julia knit her gorgeous shawl which was her something blue. Julia also loves gardening so the place cards had gum boots on them and the table numbers were different gardening shapes like a watering can and a potted plant. Granville Island Florist created the gorgeous bouquets and centerpieces with lots of pretty peonies. The guests had to sing a song with the word love in it to get the couple to kiss and everyone kept on singing throughout the reception. One of the many touching things about their wedding was how after Julia & Ian’s parents finished their speeches they hugged each other. It is wonderful how two families become one after a wedding.
Kiren and her team from DreamGroup did a fabulous job keeping the day running smoothly and on time, which allowed Julia & Ian to just enjoy their day. Mink Makeup + Hair did amazing and fun things with the ladies’ hair and everyone’s makeup was stunning. DJ Scott from Garry Robertson DJ Entertainment kept all the guests dancing into the night.
Thank you so much, Julia & Ian, for sharing such a memorable day with us. You two are an inspiration. Congratulations!
