Allison & Nathan’s Arbutus Club Wedding

What fun we had with Allison & Nathan and not just because they give the best group hugs! We could yap all day with them, talking about our two favourite things, traveling and music. Allison did a beautiful job creating all of the decor for their intimate wedding at the Arbutus Club (yes, I did just say ALL of the decor! Even the flowers! She is a talented artist!). Allison and Nathan incorporated so many thoughtful details into their wedding that celebrated and honoured their families and friends. One of my favourite elements that Allison had created were gorgeous paper birds that their guests signed with their wishes and blessings for the couple. The birds were then hung over Allison and Nathan for their ceremony.

Thanks so much, Allison and Nathan, for having us be a part of such a special day. Congratulations!

Allison wore the same necklace that her mother, her grandmother and her great grandmother wore at their weddings. Allison made the earrings to match.

Allison used lace from her Grandmother’s apron on her bouquet and wore her mother’s veil.

I loved Allison vintage inspired dress and the shoes… wowza! Nathan’s tie matched Allison’s shoes.

You can always know a new groom by how he fiddles with his ring! So cute!

I’m not sure what Nathan’s mom was up to with her noise makers. I wonder if her middle name is trouble! : )

    I love it! Heirloom lace and coral socks...the perfect combination of traditional and a little zany thrown in... Gotta say, the mother of the groom looks drop-dead gorgeous in that colour , and who else can make a bullhorn work as an accessory?
