The wedding invitation was a collaborative effort. Lulu created the featured illustration of Hycroft while a local company designed the set before it was printed in China. Lulu also sourced her own Vow Books.
Lulu loves dark moody tone which is very rare among brides as most brides prefer lighter tone. Therefore, Stephanie and I decided to take a different approach on the bridal bouquet. Adding peacock feather and burgundy bunny tails, with a mix of burgundy and blush toned florals to create an unique bouquet full of texture. We also added velvet ribbon for the luxe vibe and to balance out the heavy dark tone.
A sunset wedding ceremony took place on the balcony overlooking Vancouver with a jewel-toned circular flower arch as the design focal point. Peacock feathers were interspersed with deep red roses and seasonal floral in shades of crimson and blush while velvet ribbon pew markers framed a beautiful aisle for Lulu. WeDo Weddings Etc. provided the blush-hued draping and a classic gold chandelier.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed champagne and canapés, but the real fun factor was located in the venue’s indoor garden-like solarium, where a Vintage Portrait Session Experience was offered to guests. Here, an elaborate design installation by WeDo Weddings Etc. completed Lulu and Chen’s Old World-inspired dream. The room was draped in velvet to evoke the feel of a British castle, while a “feast” of fruit, berries, and cakes were woven amongst vintage ephemera and lush flowers, setting the stage for very memorable keepsake portraits.
Keepsake glass place cards were personalized with each guest’s name hand-calligraphed in gold foil. Roses, feathers, and grapes were dramatically arranged on tables between rose gold candelabras with lots of candles, conjuring an Old World Feast.
