An Intimate Garden Wedding at St.Anne's Academy on Vancouver Island


Sarah and Andrew chose to have their destination wedding on Vancouver Island and are we ever glad they did! They were planning their wedding from the States and the minute we chatted with this couple we knew we’d be the perfect fit to help them bring their dream to life. Throughout our meetings, site visits, Skype dates and phone calls we really got to know Sarah, Andrew and their family on a personal level which in turn helped us to create a unique and beautiful day for them. Full planning is our absolute favourite, we love being involved in the entire process and creating lasting relationships along the way.

We transformed the back garden of the historic St.Anne’s Academy so that it would host their ceremony and reception creating an intimate and elegant garden soiree. Ivory, greens and golds kept the natural yet elegant feel throughout while embracing the vibes of the Pacific North West. Floor length linens take the tables to the next level and what’s a garden wedding without wooden cross back chairs?! Poppies Floral Art did an amazing job with the flowers and Erin Bradley created a flawless and natural look for the ladies. Sarah and Andrew wanted to incorporate tapas in their menu so Toque Catering created a custom, Spanish inspired tapas buffet for them and it did not disappoint.

Chelsea Warren Photography was an excellent match for this couple, her easy going and professional attitude really jived with them and it shows in her stunning photos. A great wedding isn't complete without a killer dance party and thanks to Hi-Way Productions that's exactly what we got.

After it was all said and done and we were sitting in the office on Monday re-living the magic when we received the sweetest words from Sarah,

“Thank you so much for all your help and patience with my slow responses to emails. Andrew, my mom, and I were really nervous about the whole planning process and you made it so easy for us. I can't thank you enough! All of the vendors were fantastic and everyone was so complimentary on food, decor, name it. You went above and beyond and everything turned out better than I could have imagined. The best part was we actually got to enjoy our wedding.”

That last line is why we do what we do. You should be able to enjoy every moment of your wedding day and not have to worry about anything. We strive to provide that type of experience to all our clients. Thank you Sarah and Andrew, and thank you to all the vendors who helped make this dream come true!
