Erika Hammer of Ten·2·Ten Photography captured every intimate moment of the couple's day, and shares a few words about their love-filled nuptials.

From Erika:

Behind all the glitz and glamour of a wedding day are two people who are truly in love. Frank and Antonella's wedding day was filled not only with lavish and luxurious details, but also with love for one another and from their families. Having photographed over 100 weddings, I rarely get a chance to see such an incredible outpouring of love.

Ariane and Henry tied the knot at one of Vancouver's much-loved venues, Cecil Green Park House. Situated on the grounds of UBC campus, Cecil Green is simply breathtaking, to say the least.

<< click on any of the photos to see more images. >>

With a picturesque setting like this, is it any wonder that Cecil Green Park House is one of Vancouver's most coveted wedding venues?

Kailey-Michelle, of Kailey Michelle Events, planned a wedding that perfectly showcased the couple's spirit, as well as their vision. Describing themselves as a goofy, spontaneous, movie-loving couple; Ariane & Henry's wedding day had a light-hearted, happy atmosphere that suited the couple perfectly.

From Kailey-Michelle: I first met Ariane through her sister, whose heart was to ease her sister's stress and worry, when it came to both planning her wedding and enjoying the day. If Ariane [and her family] were to savour the day and be fully present to absorb every moment, then she needed someone she could trust to make the magic happen. And the day was exactly that.. magical, filled with sweet sentiment, great food and the most luxurious of settings; like your most elegant dinner party nestled within the walls of history, character and prestige!

Akin to every girl's fairytale, the room dripped with hundreds of fresh cut roses, orchids and strands of pearls. But more striking than the beauty of their wedding day, was the sheer joy these two shared in finally being each others, at last.

Ariane's beaded lace wedding dress fit her perfectly, and her classic bouquet of pink roses by Wedding Design Studio fit the fairytale romance of the day, beautifully.

The Montreal wedding of Mary & Robert was a beautiful occasion that was both love-filled and opulent. Their incredibule day was captured by Grey Sparrow and expertly planned by Blanc Events, who utterly transformed The Panoramic Hall at the Montreal Science Centre into a magnificent enchanted forest.

A word from the bride: "Robert and I both dreamed of getting married in the country, as we both grew up spending our summers there. However, getting 300 people to the country is no easy task. Instead, we thought it would be easier to transform a room at the Science Center in Montreal into an enchanted forest. The color scheme revolved around warmth and greenery, focusing on deep burgundies and dark mauves, as well as introducing tons of wood and muted silvers."

Mary chose to wear Vera Wang's Liesel gown; the intricately beading dropped waist bodice and full layered skirt suited her beautifully. If you are experiencing major shoe envy right now, you are not alone; we LOVE her Jazzy Doll heels by Christian Louboutin.

Dustin & Lucy's northern BC wedding is full of so many unique and special details that we weren't sure where to begin... until we read this beautiful passage from Tyler, of Tyler Meers Photography:

"Lucy and Dustin's wedding was a truly beautiful affair that intertwined not only their deep love for one another, but also their connection to culture and place. Bonds of love, light, and life run powerfully though the event of their union, from the century-old fishing cannery with the family connection that was transformed into an unforgettable reception venue, to the locally sourced and handcrafted items that made their day unique.

Dustin & Lucy met and live in the coastal community of Prince Rupert, British Columbia, and wanted their wedding theme to emulate the mountains, streams, and coastline that they love so much. The vision for their wedding was simple: sea-foam meets mossy forest floor. "We tried to keep it as natural and local as possible," says Lucy. With the breath-taking scenery of Prince Rupert and its surrounding areas, natural and local made for one incredible wedding day location.

Lucy is a member of the Nisga'a nation, an indigenous group from the northwest corner of British Columbia. Lucy's connection to her heritage comes through in many of the wedding details that you will see in this story. Add to that, the couple's love for their community and you have an affair brimming with personal touches and beautiful nods to nature.

You may remember Dustin & Lucy as the winners of our 2014 Best Engagement Photo Contest: Winter! You can see their winning photo (also photographed by Tyler Meers Photography) here.

This wedding offers incredible DIY details everywhere the eye can see! For starters, Lacy hand-appliqued lace to her red high heels, elevating them from fashionable to fabulous ;)

The boutonnieres, crafted of cedar bark roses, hydrangeas, and sprigs of Rosemary, were lovingly made by Lucy's bridesmaid.

Lucy handmade tiny cedar-bark rosebud earrings for each of her bridesmaids; their pendants were made from sea glass gathered from the beaches near the cannery and crafted by a Prince Rupert artisan.

The bouquets included cedar-bark roses hand-woven by Lucy, her sisters, and other women in her family.

The groom & groomsmen wore unique ties that had been silkscreened with a Chinook salmon, gifted to them by local artist Kostan Lagace.

From Tyler: "North Pacific Cannery is a National Historic Site and the longest standing cannery on the northwest coast. Situated outside of Port Edward on Cassiar Road, about 25 kilometers from Prince Rupert, the cannery is a collection of wooden, tin-roofed buildings spread along a tidal river bank and connected by a series of boardwalks. To Lucy and Dustin, North Pacific symbolized the heartbeat of coastal life - salmon. Wild salmon are integral to First Nations culture and existence, and many coastal communities would not exist if it were not for this precious food."

The North Pacific Cannery offers a truly amazing wedding venue, with airy high-rafter cielings and picturesque views. Each of the 168 cedar bark roses that were given as wedding favours, were lovingly crafted by Lucy, her sister Nikita, and other members of her family. The roses were made by harvesting strips of red cedar tree bark, drying and cleaning it, then hand-weaving the strips one by one into lovely, unique roses.

From Lucy: "My grandma's moms name was Rose, and I really wanted to incorporate them to honour my Ool'ie."

" an earthy yet muted red wine colour with strong brown undertones.. "

marsala colour wedding cake

For better or for worse, when Pantone speaks, the wedding and design world listen. The leading authority on all things colour sets the tone every year and we all follow suit, in one way or another. Over the years, designers, decorators, florists and brides have rejoiced in exciting hues of green, orange, pink, and blue but this year's surprise winner has caught many off guard. A far cry from bright and exciting, Marsala, an earthy yet muted red wine colour with strong brown undertones, has been named Pantone's colour for 2015.

This is a rich, warm colour that signals confidence and strength while giving a sense of groundedness. It is not a fun, flirty colour like what we've seen over the past few seasons but it is one that beckons sophistication from its richness.
