Happy Anniversary Laura and John and to so many happy years to come!
What a day, what a day! A beautiful cultural wedding Irish and Portuguese it’s fantastic when couples include their family traditions and include their own details to make their wedding day unique to themselves.
John and Laura said I do in the beautiful Holy Rosary Cathedral, in Vancouver on June 12th. It was a beautiful ceremony and the Vancouver weather cooperated with us and shone stunning light through the stained glass windows. After the ceremony we had some sweet treats at cupcakes on Denman, this is Laura and John’s favourite shop so it was great to stop in for a few minutes. When we walked around the Sea Wall the bridal party was showered in cheers, whistles and yells of congratulations from all the sunbathers!

The photo on the left was Laura’s Mom and her Dad, it was important to Laura to recreate this photo with her Dad on her wedding Day…Check!
Okay, there is a reason we didn’t zoom in on the cyclists…It just so happened that a naked bike ride with hundreds of cyclists went by us as we were getting the cute romantic shots outside of the church. Jen and I mentioned something about getting “detail” shots which made us all laugh!
John’s speech made us laugh when he admitted to writing it on the back of the World Cup schedule!
Thank you John and Laura once again for letting us be a part of your day. We wish you all the happiness in the world!

It was another beautiful day for a wedding! Laura and John tied the knot yesterday and it was a day filled with family, friends and traditions. Here’s one of our favourite photos from the day. More to come in a couple of days…There are so many to choose from!
One of the things I really love about designing wedding stationery is having the opportunity to get to know the bride and groom to create a one of a kind invitation for their day.
When I met with Robina she knew that she wanted to use recycled paper for her invitations. Recycled paper has come a long way in just a few short years, it’s able to hold ink colour much better now and looks fantastic printed with graphic images or photographs. So I knew what paper I wanted to use.
Let’s start with their wedding invitations and RSVP postcards.
On the wedding day the programs for the guests were printed on the same recycled paper and I used the same fonts and illustrated image of the tree.
We did bling out the seating chart! Using the same image and fonts tied everything together. Robina and Don named each of their tables after different types of trees.
Don’t buy those rolls of tickets that you get just about anywhere! Again bringing the theme together to create custom tickets that will have your guests buzzing!!
Jen and I were so excited to photograph Robina and Don’s wedding this year. I had spent time with Robina and Don designing their Wedding Invitations, and Stationery Details for their Wedding Day. Stay tuned for a special Stationery post from their wedding to come! Here are a few of our favourite images from their wedding, enjoy!
Robina looking so glam and ready to get married!
We told Robina and Don to work it for the camera. As you can see that was no problem for them!
