CHIC MOUNTAINSIDE LOVE
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.

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!

THE BOLD & THE SPARKLY
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!
