The real marriage of today is about the Canadian West Coast. ).
As we’ve mentioned before, it’s special when a wedding is rooted in the location. Erin & David’s British Columbia bash focused on local vendors, nods to the parents, and the importance of the place where they grew up and fell in love.

Our Love Story
After many years of friendship, sparks flew at the 2010 Winter Olympics held in Vancouver.
Before getting engaged, we dated for three years. One year was spent in Thailand. Dave proposed on a trip to Barra de Navidad, Mexico, while we were both barefooted on the beach and drinking margaritas.
West Coast, boho. A little nautical. Lots of driftwood. Casual, intimate, and fun.
Our venue was chosen because it felt like a destination wedding, but we were still in British Columbia…we could have the majority of our guests stay at the resort.
It was very convenient that the villas were located around the reception and ceremony area. It was a weekend-long event and felt like a “village. ”
We love the Sunshine Coast. Dave was born in Powell River, and his family ran an oyster farm near Nelson Island for many years.
Both of us love the outdoors and boating. We have spent many summers on “the Farm.” We are West Coast people at heart and love to be near the ocean.
Erin wore a wedding dress that her mother wore in the 1980s. It was modernized. The dress was casual and floor-length in silk with spaghetti straps, lace detail on top, and a sheath style. She wore sandals with flat soles. Simple, whimsical, and boho.
The bridesmaids wore mint lace dresses and any shoes they liked. Erin’s party included a “Bridesman” who wore a matching mint bow tie with the skirts of her bridesmaids.
Erin left to the sound of an acoustic guitar version of Elvis Presley’s ‘Fools Rush In.’ This was the wedding song of her parents.
A photo of her mother in the original dress was displayed for guests with the words “Something Borrowed.”
David lost his mother when he turned 18 years old. All the guests raised their glasses to her in honor of her.
