From the Editors

This wedding season has been all about the ‘new normal.’ It turns out that couples have changed how they want to celebrate. As some choose the intimate route, we are experiencing an elopement boom in British Columbia –making it all about the unique experience of their love.

Helicopter photo shoots and mountaintop vows have never been so popular. Others have embraced the importance of family and friends being around them as they wed. The weekend wedding has become the go-to for couples who want togetherness as their theme. Whatever choice couples are making, they are all in. They don’t want to regret a single thing.

West Coast Weddings Magazine is once again happy to help make that happen! This issue showcases the natural beauty and authentic talent that British Columbia has to share with couples in love. Be sure to visit us at westcoastweddings.com for inspiration, tips, and ideas to help you #shoplocal for your special day.

West Coast Weddings has also had many changes over the past year, and we are happy to announce that last year’s announcement of new ownership is finally happening! Look for big changes on the website, new digital issues throughout the year, and more events. It’s as they say.

“Change is sweet!’.

Naturally Beautiful Weddings

British Columbia weddings and elopements are truly epic, boasting some of the world's most spectacular venues and backdrops. You can tie the knot from mountaintops to the ocean, with waterfalls, lakes, and forests in between. You can also exchange vows at wineries, resorts, glamping, gardens, luxury boats, and ballrooms—an endless choice of how and where to celebrate your day.

Fly Away With Me

Looking to reach the highest mountaintops? Luckily, BC can fulfill that wish! Check-in with SKY Helicopters Heli-Weddings or ride high with Sea to Sky Air. We love the ‘two for one’ option where you wed on the beach and celebrate on the mountains or vice versa. Also –mountain flights are a great way to propose!

TIP: We highly recommend having an experienced team help you—seriously, this is not the time for DIY. The pros know where to go, the weather, the timing, and how you should dress. Start with Erica Miller Photography and Young Hip & Married or Amanda Coldicutt Photography.

Ballroom Beauty

Natural beauty and amazing ballrooms go hand in hand in BC. You can trip the light fantastically in your version of a royal wedding AND have waterfront photos taken just steps away. Take a tour around Rosewood Hotel Georgia, Fairmont Pacific Rim, ShangriLa Vancouver, The Sutton Hotel, and The Douglas to get started.

Love and adventure await couples in the majestic mountains and coastal waters. Sea to Sky Gondola offers a worldfamous view and a suspension bridge experience. Or marry in the rainforest with Peaks & Vows, which specializes in adventure weddings, including hot air balloons, yachts, glamping, and seaplanes! We recommend chatting with Young Hip and Married, who seem to know every nook and cranny where newlyweds can celebrate!

Garden Vows

If gardens are where you grow, meander through Bloedel Conservatory, Hycroft Manor, Cecil Green Park House, UBC Botanical Gardens, Harrison Hot Springs Resort, and Stanley Park Pavilion. Pop Up Weddings BC will be happy to help you find your own secret garden!

Extraordinarily Unique

Are you looking for a signature statement venue? Try restaurants such as Brix & Mortar, or artistic venues such as The Polygon Gallery or The Pipe Shop. Invite culture to your wedding at The Permanent or the Vancouver Art Gallery. Are you a farm wedding couple? You will be thrilled with Mt. Lehman Meadows or Mann Farms. Why not marry at the Bloedel Conservatory or at some of the hippest coffee shops? And for Asian history you cannot beat Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Garden.

Jane + John

Jane and John's wedding was set amidst the enchanting beauty of The Seasons at the Park in Vancouver. As the sun began its descent, casting a warm golden glow over the landscape, Jane prepared for her special day with her closest friends and family by her side. Her gown, adorned with delicate lace and flowing tulle, made her look like a vision straight out of a fairy tale. Meanwhile, John stood at the altar, dressed in a sharp suit. Surrounded by their loved ones, Jane and John exchanged heartfelt vows.

Following the ceremony, the couple stole away for a private sunset session before returning to their reception, where friends and family awaited to celebrate their union. The atmosphere was filled with laughter, music, and dancing, as the newlyweds basked in the love and warmth of their loved ones.

Love by the Lake

Lance and Scott's wedding was a breathtaking blend of nature and architectural & industrial vibes, a true reflection of their unique love story. Every detail, from the elegant touches to the edgy metallic accents, spoke to their love for modern design. The couple chose to be surrounded by the serene beauty of Okanagan Lake and embraced by their closest friends and family.

On Hotel Eldorado's rooftop ceremony space they exchanged their vows in a moment that was both

intimate and filled with joyful tears. Yuriko of Vintage Origami Weddings designed the handmade their custom geometric backdrop handmade custom geometric backdrop, adorned with lush moss and marble, perfectly complemented the copper dessert bar props and handcrafted florals. The stylish way of incorporating a monochromatic palette with geometric elements and metallics was simply stunning. It was a perfect reflection of their celebration of love, style, and the journey that Lance & Scott had shared together.

Midnight Hour

In the quietude of the night, beneath a celestial canopy embroidered with the twinkling pearls of the universe, unfolds something timeless. This bridal photo shoot theme captures the beauty and inherent romance set at the witching hour. Drawing inspiration from classic literature and age-old traditions of moonlit rendezvous, the Midnight Hour theme is the perfect amalgamation of moody aesthetics, classic elements, and understated elegance. Set against the brick backdrop of an opulent, yet rustic building in Gastown, Vancouver, this photo shoot uses dim, diffused lighting to creates sense of secrecy, intimacy, and sophistication.

The bride is the epitome of classic elegance. Adorned in a form-fitting, modern gown that is the perfect touch of elegance and drama, her look is accentuated with a pair of custom pearl sleeves that sparkles in the light, as though kissed by the midnight stars themselves. Her bouquet is an array of calla lilies, embodying the rich, classic yet simple undertones of this mysterious affair.

Seaside Poetry

Darcye and Christian met in their last year of university when Christian moved in across the street. They were best friends for months before they decided to start dating. Eight years later, their romance has seen moves across the country (twice) before they settled in Vancouver. Darcye had known she would get married on Pender Island since she was a little girl. Her parents got married on Pender Island over 35 years ago and it has always held a special place in Darcye's family's heart. Her family has been on South Pender since the late 1800's, when her great-great-grandfather, arrived by row boat from Victoria.

Part of the ceremony was on the family property, followed by dinner at Poets Cove. The Poets Cove patio was a dream location for their dinner and reception. They wanted to take advantage of the scenery of the Island as much as possible. As soon as you step onto the patio of the resort, you are met with a view that is quintessentially Pacific North West. They enjoyed a fantastic seafood feast while the sun set over the water. Knowing they were going to get married on Pender, it was an easy decision to try and use as many vendors and suppliers from the Island as possible. Pender Island is filled with incredibly talented wedding industry vendors!

Forever yours

Starting as high school sweethearts, Tracey & Howard's union was a big celebration for all those in their lives. From a fun photo and video session followed by a limo ride, lunch with their nearest and dearest, to a beautiful ceremony officiated by Howard's brother-in-law.

Post-vows everyone enjoyed signature drinks, canapés and a grand Chinese banquet. The energy on the day was so lively that the dance floor lit up before dinner ended, turning the celebration into a symphony of

and togetherness. Guests were treated to an LED robot show, a cotton candy station, a lively Photo Booth and late-night instant noodles. Tracey and Howard's wedding wasn't just a party; it was an inspiration!

Coastal Tradition

"When I was planning my own traditional wedding ceremony I found it really difficult to find online resources that showcased indigenous weddings, let alone indigenous people. I wanted to share the beauty, strength, and resilience of my Cree culture." - Kristy of Save the Date Beauty

For this elopement shoot, the goal was to highlight a real indigenous couple and showcase the intricate beadwork crafted by talented indigenous artists. The colour palette for the ceremony was carefully chosen, incorporating black, white, tan, golds, and burnt yellows.

One significant element of the wedding attire was an elegant cape, designed to draw inspiration from images of their ancestors and the attire they adorned during traditional ceremonies. Faux elk teeth were incorporated into the cape, paying homage to a time when such adornments would have been genuine.

+ Terri

The Blanket Ceremony represents the symbolism of stepping onto a blanket together, marking their entrance into the world together. Calling the Ancestors, emphasized the profound significance of the blanket. The blanket that is wrapped around them represents their ancestors that would be called to the Ceremony.

The Cree people, indigenous to Canada, have a rich cultural heritage that spans centuries. In Cree wedding ceremonies, traditions are deeply rooted in the connection to nature, spirituality, and community. The celebration is an intersection of love, culture, and a profound connection to their roots, embodying the spirit of Cree wedding ceremonies that have endured through time.

A Rainy Reverie

Damian and Natasha met online just six days after Damian moved to Canada from England. It wasn’t long before they were spending all their time together. And their first kiss at an antique bookshop in front of a first edition of The Hobbit became the running theme of their romance. Natasha, a writer, bought the volume on their first anniversary for Damian, and their choice of forest elopement included quotes from The Hobbit in their vows.

amian proposed on a rainy day on Knox Mountain in Kelowna. The elopement photos featured Natasha’s boots due to the weather, but it turned out perfectly as she is a Retired Lieutenant from the Royal Canadian Air Force. The newlyweds own Maple & Manchester Fauxmagerie in Kelowna and indulge in weekend cabin getaways.

Wild & Refined

In the infancy of Chelsey & Matthews relationship, they stumbled across Bodega ridge. With puppy love in their hearts, the couple fantasized about a Bodega Ridge wedding in the future. Eight years later, the task of choosing a wedding destination was in front of them and they knew right away. Living in the hustle and bustle of Vancouver, Galiano provided the perfect, quiet oasis to stage their wedding, with an all star vendor team wready for every twist and turn. Guests arrived the day before to a colorful welcome party in the lodge. The west coast

took the stage by knocking out power lines, but have no fear because Bodega was ready, generators kicked in and everyone was back to dancing. The morning of the wedding was damp and drizzly, but as vows were exchanged and the rings slipped onto fingers, the clouds began to slip behind the hills exposing the warm and glorious June sun. Chelsey & Matthew's wedding celebration was nothing short of pure magic. Not only was the weekend accessorized with so many gorgeous touches, but it was filled with oh so much love!

Whimsical Wildflowers

Zoey & Adam dreamed of getting married somewhere of significance to them. As a young Jewish couple from Montreal wanting a small intimate wedding; They fell in love with the raw beauty of Victoria while dating, and just like that the destination was set!

The traditional Jewish ceremony was held at Saxe Point in Esquimalt, the perfect place where guests could experience both ocean & green landscapes that Vancouver Island is known for. In designing the reception, they wanted to draw on the natural beauty from the ceremony. A draped the reception hall and strung fairy lights created an intimate setting, with whimsical pastel florals to bring the outside beauty in. A favourite design element was the placement of the couples wedding color, the perfect shade of pastel purple; thoughtfully used throughout florals, stationery and candle sticks.
