With industrial vibes, tons of natural foliage, and contemporary styling, Lisa and Marshall’s special day at Brix and Mortar was what urban wedding dreams are made of! Because the venue offered nearly everything in-house, the couple only had to worry about showing up and looking super classy. They nixed a traditional wedding party and even choosing a color scheme in favor of creating a natural, effortless, and true-to-them celebration, with the help of Inspired Events Group. After their emotional first look and portraits with around town Sachin Khona, they said, “I do” in a stunningly charming courtyard and toasted to forever with a cocktail style reception that focused on food, music, and impeccable drinks. If you think urban weddings are all concrete and clean lines, get ready for Lisa and Marshall to change your perception!
Lisa and Marshall
Brix and Mortar, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
We chose Brix and Mortar in Yaletown because of its location, set up, and aesthetic. We felt at ease knowing Brix was so experienced running weddings, and we didn’t need to bring in any additional furniture, food, etc. And you can’t beat the brick, foliage, and twinkly lights of the atrium!
We went with a more informal cocktail style reception that focused on good music, food, and drinks. Our priority was making sure everyone had a great time. We decided not to stress about favours, colour schemes, and a wedding party. We opted for a guitarist, donuts, and photo booth for a little fun.
