For couples wedding planning for the future: a look back at a chic urban celebration of love, for a little inspiration for when we can all be together again.
Photography by Paige Lorraine Photography.
A golden wedding dress (and a crown, of course) was just one detail that made Annalise and Richard’s wedding at Brix and Mortar back in October 2019 shine.
“We wanted to throw a great party and a wedding that we ourselves would want to be invited to,” says Annalise. “We made a few decisions with our guests’ experience in mind, from providing a taxi to taking the majority of our photos beforehand to eliminate the long wait between ceremony and reception.”
As we wait for celebrations of love to start back up again, a look back at one Vancouver couple’s special day:
The bride wore a custom gown from Semaya Couture, shoes from Manolo Blahnik and a Lelet New York headpiece; jewellery was by Olive and Piper while Blo Yaletown did Annalise’s hair and makeup.
The groom sported a made-to-measure emerald-green suit and bowtie from Harry Rosen.
Florals from Sunflower Florist were peppered throughout the venue, though Brix and Mortar’s vine-draped courtyard provided plenty of its own greenery.
Signature drinks offered a personal flourish at the bar. “It’s also a fun treat that we like to make at home to remind us of the night,” says Annalise.
Wise advice from the couple: “Give yourself time to plan. Book one major item each month—venue, then photographer, and so on—instead of trying to research everything all at once and getting overwhelmed.”
