Wedding Planning by Aurora Buchanan | Wedding Photography by Lucida Photography
Loretta and Derek are architects and with their design minded ways we had some fun planning their wedding. Our journey to the wedding was, for me, very interesting and inspirational. We started with our never-been-used-for-events reception space, truly a blank canvas: white walls, white floors with white pillars. We enlisted Taryn from Savoury Chef to create a delicious menu and Cailyn from Delovely Creative to help us create our minimalist, clean and natural landscape.
The wedding day began at UBC Boathouse for their ceremony on the riverbank. Margaret Lai did a stunning job with Loretta’s hair and makeup. A mandolin played Loretta down the aisle as she walked with her parents. Guests mingled on the dock for photos and afterwards headed to the Dinner reception in Gastown.
Guests were greeted with cocktails and delicious canapés. Dinner was served family style a top the lush green garlands from Delovely Creative. Sweet Thea created three home style buttercream cakes for the dessert buffet. As the warm night continued, DJ Hunt got the dancing started and the party went into the wee hours of the morning.
With Love, Aurora
