I remember the day like it was yesterday, my phone rang and on the other end was my friend Blaine, “Steph, I’m engaged!!!”. I shared in the enthusiasm and couldn’t wait to hear more of the love story. Blaine and Wyn had decided that I was the planner for them to coordinate their Okanagan destination wedding for their closest friends and family to ensure a stress free day. I couldn’t stop smiling!
Not too long after this conversation the couple drove down from Whistler to have coffee with me to share their love story and details of the big day: an intimate wedding at Cedar Creek Estate Winery with personalized elements that shared their personalities and style.
Blaine and Wyn’s love story first began on Craigslist. Not how you must be thinking though 🙂 Wyn had moved from Australia to Whistler to live abroad and explore the beautiful West Coast. On the search to find a new place to live she stumbled across Blaine’s ad on Craigslist to join the many already living there and found herself moving in shortly after. Blaine was smitten from day one and later that year Blaine, along with their dog Lilly, asked Wyn to marry him. She said yes!!!!
Thank you Blaine and Wyn for sharing this special planning journey and celebration with me. It was an absolute pleasure working with you. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness xo
The bridesmaid dresses were made by the Mother of the Bride (beautiful!).
Blaine and Wyn decided to do a first look (insert huge excitement here). I LOVE first looks and love every opportunity for a couple to share time together and take a moment to reflect with each other on such an incredible day. There was so much love between this couple.
And now for the ceremony…the thunderstorm had just past and the sun was starting to peek through just in time.
Here comes the bride! A favourite detail of the day was having Blaine’s best man and best friend officiate the wedding. Such a beautiful ceremony!
Congrats to the newlyweds!
