I’m an ocean girl and always envisioned I would marry by the sea. But one day
scrolling through instagram I came across images of North Arm Farm and the
beautiful backdrop of Mt. Currie, BC. Immediately I talked to Reg (who was born
and raised in Vancouver) asking if he had been there. He informed me that
they provide organic fruit and veg for some of Vancouver’s best restaurants.
It seemed like the perfect choice for us as we were very focused on serving
our guests a dining experience they wouldn't soon forget. We were sold!
My taste and vision for both my wedding and my dress really aligned with LOHO's
aesthetic — a perfect combination of NYC and LA — modern, simple, chic and
playful. I added the hat for the reception and didn't take it off all night! It was
the perfect addition that completed the look! I prefer neutrals and mixing
textures over bright and bold colors. After choosing my beautiful two-toned
dress by Lola Varma I knew I wanted to play off of that in my decor. I chose to
do an untraditional long reception table that sat 115 people. It was truly the
dinner party of my dreams! The table was decorated with sprigs of dried wild
flowers in neutral and golden hues placed in mismatched glass vases.

Engagement Photoshoot / Bachelorette Gateway /
Piano on a Mountain top
The inspiration behind this shoot was to bring elegance and the unexpected to the
mountains! We wanted luxury & glamour in a natural environment where both, us and
nature could shine. Our photographer specializes in this type of photoshoot so that
was a big part of why we chose her. When she suggested we bring a piano to the top
of Mount Baker we were hooked on the idea! We don't even play the piano, but just
the thought of it was very exciting, so we knew it had to happen. Everything was
coordinated from the hair and make-up to the flowers and even smoke
bombs which created a spectacular effect.

A Bachelorette party palm springs style!
For my bachelorette I imagined a luxurious, indulgent, connective experience and
didn't want it to be the typical cliche party where we were all exhausted and hungover
afterwards! I planned a themed weekend of activities starting with a leisurely poolside
hang (manservants and all), then we enjoyed a fancy dinner out which we called
"All that Glitters" dressed to the nines in sparkles. The weekend was topped off with
a luxuriously fabulous Goddess Party! We all wore flower crowns, sparkly temporary
tattoos and embraced our female power! We hired a private chef to cook for us so we
could sit back, relax, and enjoy. Overall, I wanted us to experience a trip where we all
felt like we were able to step away from the reality of our lives for a short time and
really enjoy the moments and each other's company in style!

We agreed that although there were aspects of a traditional wedding that we both
enjoyed, the typical decor/style was not one of these things. We were inspired by
the season and wanted deep romantic vibes as well as something bold and
intriguing with a black tie elegance.
BE BOLD & TAKE RISKS: We recommended our guests to advantage of the oppotunity
to go all out! Choose the fancier option you might otherwise not have had the
courage to wear normally. Ladies, opt for the full-length gown instead of the black
cocktail dress you could wear to almost any occasion. Guys, wear a navy or black
suit/tux with a matching waistcoat or cummerbund. Be bold, be daring, and have fun
with it! Dress as you would if you were invited to walk the red carpet at the Met
Gala or Oscars!
