True Love, True Luxury

True Love, True Luxury: Tristan & David

Copy Link


Tristan and David’s rustic chic inspired wedding took place on May 7th, 2011 in British Columbia.
The ceremony took place on Bowen Island, and the reception took place at the groom’s aunt and uncle’s
home on Hood Point, Bowen Island.



Tristan’s dress was designed by Suzanne Ermann and purchased in New York.
“Simple but unique. It had a hoop at the bottom so there was a perfect circle around my feet.
It was great for an outdoor wedding,” recalls Tristan.

She paired the gown with Marc Jacobs shoes also purchased in New York.

The bridesmaids all wore cream Theory dresses from Holt Renfrew.
They wore black shoes to accompany the dress.



The couple used Granville Island Florist. “We had small bouquets of flowers all the way down the tables.
Everything was white with a little bit of greenery. The flowers were classic but modern. Suzanne was amazing.
They had to cart all the flowers over from Vancouver to Bowen Island for our special day!” says Tristan.


“The reception was ‘rustic elegance’. Colin from Upright Decor hung chandeliers in the tent, over the dance floor.
He set three long tables with tuscan linen and mercury candle holders.
It was beyond my imagination. He is a mind reader. I couldn’t have asked for anything more,” says Tristan.



“I have grown up on Dream bars and Dave loves them too. My Mom made 350 and we placed 2 in a little brown bag. We then stamped, ‘Dream this night away,’ on each bag as it is Dave’s favourite Neil Young song,” says Tristan.



“It was laid back and a truly amazing day filled with lots of friends, family and laughter! We had every form of weather including torrential rain at the ceremony and rainbows and sunshine at the reception.”


“Our favourite design element of the entire wedding was the clear tent.
You could see all the trees light up at night,” says Tristan
