Hi friends – Shawna here! I’m beyond thrilled to be sharing Abigail & Bruce’s beautiful Sea to Sky Gondola wedding with you! You may recall seeing these happy faces before, as one of our favourite publications Rocky Mountain Bride, featured their wedding back in the Spring. So of course, we couldn’t help but share this one on our blog too – it’s just too good 🙂
Abigail was planning their special day from afar (living in Texas at the time) and hired us on for Set Up and Day of Coordination to help confirm and finalize all the little details. I had the joy of receiving all her pretty parcels of décor items arriving at my door the months leading up to their special day. It was so fun to see the special pieces she selected! This girl… she’s got style! I love keeping up with these two and all their adventures through Instagram and thank them so much for having the SHE team a part of their special day!
The Wedding Day Through the Eyes of the Bride
“When Bruce and I were in the early stages of planning our wedding (for a totally different destination!) things just didn’t feel right and nothing seemed to be clicking. So, one day we sat down (or I sat him down lol) and asked ourselves “if we could have all the things we love in one
place, where would that be?”
We knew we loved the outdoors and we knew we felt the most complete when we were around forests, mountains, and water. Having spent 6 years backpacking, hiking, kayaking and appreciating all of those things while dating (and still do!) so we immediately thought, “if only we could get married in Vancouver”. We had visited earlier in the year and both agreed it was our “happy place” but didn’t think it could be possible to combine all of those elements into one venue and imagined it was simply not a reality.
But before we knew it, we found ourselves making it happen (thank you Google for leading me to a place with all of those elements) and it felt so right! It didn’t take long for our family and friends to ecstatically be onboard to make the trek from Texas to beautiful BC!
There is something truly magical about being in a place where all of our favourite things meet and you get to share them with the people you love too. Our day could not have been more beautifully complete and we wouldn’t change anything about it!”
Bride’s Favourite Wedding Moment
“Taking photos on the suspension bridge as Mr + Mrs. It was just us two, appreciating the stillness and all that surrounded us – like a dream.”
