Real Wedding: Kaylen & Mike, Whistler BC

We’re taking you on a small flashback over the next couple of weeks, because well, to be honest, the last 10 months have been very full! Full of new clients, weddings, creations, new team members, a very full and beautiful wedding season, toddler life, travels, and SO MUCH MORE!

As we are finally finding the time to dive back into our blog and website, updating and beautifying #allthethings…it seemed unfair not to feature some of the stunning ceremonies, receptions, and couples from last summer before moving onto to all the gorgeousness that was 2018.

So…without any further delay, let’s do this!

REAL WEDDING: Kaylen & Mike

Venue: Dusty’s, at Whistler Blackcomb

Photography: Ainsley Rose Photography

Florals and Day of Coordination: Blue Violet Events

The Story:

This wedding was one of our favourites, and absolutely one of yours! It has been used as inspiration for florals and decor many times over since the photos by Ainsley Rose originally got shared on Instagram, and I must say…recreating the vision for Kaylen & Mike’s day in various ways has been very fulfilling.

The look: West Coast Chic

Kaylen and Mike were the epitome of “West Coast Class”. Everything was refined. From the bridesmaids getting ready robes, to her perfect bridal gown, to the bow ties, place settings, and classic colour palette…

Although absolutely nothing about the event was uptight or stuffy…nothing was out of place. That’s what I call, the perfect balance of Coastal Elegance.

The florals:

Kaylen’s bouquet featured a gorgeous pink Queen Protea, fresh neutral blooms, and a variety of rustic greens. The shape was sprawling and wild, but we kept it pretty contained to suit Kaylen’s petite frame.

The wedding arbor was lush and elegant, stunningly set against the backdrop of Whistler mountain. It seriously upped the sex appeal of Dusty’s outdoor patio and made for the perfect backdrop for K&M to say ‘I do!’ Check out the drapery for inspiration for your own wedding!

The Reception:

Long tables are maybe my favourite dining trend since…well, ever. Some people consider them impersonal and difficult to create conversation, while to me they feel the opposite. Intimate, casual, joyous…sort of like an old family tradition that gets to be shared by all of your closest people. Will someone pass the bread!?

We had long tables with garlands traced throughout the middle, gold charger plates for a splash of elegance, sprigs of greens to incorporate the rustic appeal, crisp white napkins to keep things clean, simple but feminine place cards with handwritten calligraphy to soften the aesthetic…

From the couple:

"We had the BEST experience working with Robyn at Blue Violet Events. From flowers to decor to coordination, Robyn and her team did such an incredible job perfecting everything and they were an amazing team to work with. We could not be happier with how the day turned out. Each piece was executed exactly as we had envisioned, and they were an absolute pleasure to work with."

We hope you enjoy this series of photos as much as we enjoyed bringing this wedding to life! Of course, you will never get to feel the joy, love, and excitement that was shared with Kaylen, Mike, their beautiful families, and models…I mean friends…on this beautiful summer’s day…but you get the idea ;)
