This fairy tale Fairmont Vancouver Hotel wedding took place Spring 2018 and featured an elaborate white floral garden design. Intricately decorated white floral swans and a custom build garden gate which matched perfectly to the couples wedding invitation.
I met with bride Maykameh and groom Sui Him for their engagement photos and fell in love with them and their wedding theme, which I could not wait to see unfold. The couple and their family loved my style and trusted me to capture everything perfectly in my own way without worrying about giving me too much direction. This was the best thing since having trust between photographer and clients is so important and allows the photographer to flow through the day and capture the story and memories in ways that you will love.
With an excellent team of vendors on their side, this couple was set for success as the morning of their wedding day began. With the planning team from Modern Mint Events to oversee the day, and decor by Eclat, everything was set to perfection. The ceremony room was dressed in white and gold, with a white aisle runner down the center and elegant sheer white pipe and drape that were gathered on one side and lavishly arranged white florals that cascaded down the other side. Gold rimmed white chairs lined the aisle to the magnificent Sofreh that was edged in white orchids in a paisley shape, and framed by crystal candelabras with two white custom made floral swans by Granville Island Florist.
Once friends and family were seated, the ceremony began with the groom walking his mother down the aisle, then the best man walking the brides mother followed by the groomsmen and bridesmaids in soft pink gowns beautifully embroidered with shimmering pink florals. Maykameh walked down the aisle in a strapless Vera Wang ball gown from Blush Bridal and white satin Jimmy Choo’s with crystal embellishments. She carried a bouquet of white orchids and had five tiny ballet dancers from the Goh Ballet dance before her down the aisle, then bow as she made her way to the Sofreh. Sui Him looked handsome in his black Prada suit with a Black bow tie and white orchid boutonniere.
Stepping into the reception was like being transported to a magical fairytale garden filled with lush white orchid, hydrangeas and spray roses from Granville Island Florist. Mirrored top tables reflected the crystal candelabras and gold rimmed glass charger plates all perfectly placed by Eclat Decor. Large family tables surrounded huge arrangements of white florals with a touch of pink spray roses and the glow of soft white candlelight. The sweetheart table was the highlight of the room with an all white stage that sat two custom white blossom trees and floral swans on either side of a whote acrylic table with a cascade of orchids down the center. Behind the table sat two custom made white garden gates that match perfectly to the couples invitation design. Across a high gloss white and gold monogrammed floor wrap by Instyle Floor Wraps, hung a gold chandelier draped with hanging white florals to create the most elegant atmosphere. A seven tiered white and gold embellished cake hung delicately from a mirrored hanging crystal chandelier. What an honour it was to be part of such a spectacular event with one of the most amazing couples and a group of talented vendors to pull off this wedded fairytale.
Congratulation to Maykameh and Sui Him!!
