Hi friends! As you may already know, the SHE team is absolutely obsessed with the beauty the Pacific Northwest. Natasha & David celebrated their love at the Fraser River Lodge and all we can say is that it’s truly one of our favorites.
How Their Love Story Began
It wasn’t necessarily “love at first sight” but this one has a great story that proves timing is everything. Natasha and David went to high school together and would bump into each other on occasion in class or through mutual friend outings. They gradutated, went their seperate ways and years later, at a UBC party, Natasha noticed David from across the room. The lightbulb went off and he recoginized her too. They became friends again and soon after began dating long distance as David lived in Alberta.
Natasha soon moved out to Alberta and on a trip out to Ireland, David bought her a Clatter Irish ring while waiting to customize the engagement ring together. After five years of dating, David proposed to Natasha on a beautiful snowy day in January, during a walk along their favourite path with their dogs Maya and Peter.
How They Wed
While living in Alberta, the couple quickly realized they needed someone supporting their vision and executing it perfectly in BC. They hired Stephanie for True to You custom package and full decor and design. Natasha’s vision was blush and ivory, west coast backdrops and romance but still casual, inviting and lots of fun.
Stephanie scoured the warehouses of Niche Event Stylists, Past Pieces, Sitka Studios and Flowerella Event Florals to bring this beautiful vision to life. The reception tables were dressed in white floorlength linens, dove grey chiffon runners and many blush blooms.
To create an intimate but inviting atmosphere, we added additional seating to the tables to allow guests to mix and mingle and create new friendships during the dinner reception. Plus, it was a great spot for the couple to sneak in and say hello.
Above, was a cluster of globe lighting that created the ultimate romantic environment and the perfect lighting for all night dancing. Creating and executing this wedding with a couple from afar was an exciting and creative inspiring challenge.
