Wisteria Inspired Intimate Wedding Editorial at The Vancouver Club…

We are well into Spring and what a better way to enjoy it than with a wisteria inspired intimate wedding! This editorial was inspired by blooming wisteria in Paris in the springtime with breath-taking European influenced details and a touch of luxury. It is always possible to create a destination experience with the right details in mind (without having to physically travel!) We’re so excited to share this refined and elegant shoot with you today. This editorial is featured on The White Wren and we’re absolutely thrilled!

It is still unclear when and in what capacity the wedding with a larger group of friends and family can happen. What we have been able to do since last March that was allowed under government restrictions is to have intimate ceremonies for the couple and up to 6 to 7 guests. An intimate ceremony is just as meaningful, perhaps more beautiful with the additional resources focusing on the ceremony for now.

Wedding Invitation

This editorial took place at The Vancouver Club, a true heritage gem in the city. The ceremony and intimate dinner was held in the Georgian Room displaying high vaulted ceilings and original gilded molding, bringing that European feel to the whole wedding experience.

There are quite a few benefits to having an intimate ceremony/wedding such as a more relaxed timeline for lots of portraits and detail photos and a more manageable budget (compared to an 80 to 200 guest wedding). Having planned celebrations of different scales, I realized it is truly not the size of a wedding that makes it memorable or beautiful, but the meaningful details that are incorporated in a wedding.

Our bride started off the day in a luxurious silk slip and elegant floor-length lace robe by Davie & Chiyo for some boudoir photos before slipping into a long sleeved ceremony gown by Daalarna Couture.

Katrina of Artistry Collective styled our bride’s hair in a tousled, low chignon and worked her magic to create a flawless, glowing and natural bridal look.

Karla of Written Word Calligraphy created a classic stationery suite featuring a monogram in calligraphy and envelope liner with hand-painted baroque illustrations. She selected a bold terra cotta color for the invitation envelope, detail card and place card to give a pop of color and contrast from the soft cream color invitation.

Myrtle et Olive Floral & Event Design created a ceremony backdrop inspired by blooming wisteria in the springtime. The organic structure with twining vines and scented flowers transported us to the city of light when wisterias bloom throughout Paris in late spring. The bride’s bouquet incorporated vines and blooms from the arch and was wrapped with her favorite silk twilly from Christian Dior to make it extra special.

The night continued with an intimate candlelit dinner with immediate family at a long table dressed in taupe velvet linens. The beauty of an intimate wedding is that you can go over the top with luxurious details for the tablescape. Each table setting flaunted a set of Medusa Gala serveware by Versace Home to bring a touch of gold baroque detail and luxury to the tablescape.

While the family enjoyed some champagne and canapés, our bride stepped away briefly to change her gown and hairstyle for a brief portrait session just before dinner. Her second gown also by Daalarna Couture featured a plunging semi-sheer bodice and chiffon bottom for a more relaxed look for the rest of the evening.

To conclude the evening on a delightfully sweet note, each guest enjoyed a piece of the all white two-tiered buttercream cake crafted by Cake by Nicole. The cake was adorned with delicate wafer paper flowers inspired by the floral appliques on the bride’s long sleeved Daalarna Couture gown.
