The happy couple, Natalie & Braden, enjoying a quiet moment as husband and wife.

We had a hard time deciding which photos to share with you because, simply put, this wedding was absolutely spectacular! Natalie & Braden were married at the Celebration Pavilion at Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver. Their reception was held at the equally beautiful Diamond Alumni Centre in Burnaby.

The flawless day was captured by Will Pursell of Will Pursell Photography and planned by Lua Weddings & Events. --click on any of the photos to see more.

Our favourite thing about this wedding? The way that Natalie & Braden shared their love of all things country (they both wore cowboy boots!) and at the same time, infused the day with one elegant touch after another. This rustic country affair is proof that you can indeed have an elegant AND charming rustic-themed wedding.

Touches of lace adorned mason jars and added a romantic feel to the rustic décor. Purple, peach, and white make for a beautiful color palette, don't you think?!

The ceremony floral arrangements and wedding party florals were created by Garden Party Flowers in Vancouver.

We predict that Instagram wedding hashtags are only going to become more popular in the coming year. They are a wonderful way to see your wedding day through your guests' eyes. In fact, we kinda #love this trend.

What an excellent idea to sneak a few moments alone in your reception space before your guests arrive!

There were simply too many beautiful elements to make note of everything, but the glass vases of varying heights that were scattered throughout the room were certainly a highlight.
