Candice and Paul envisioned a simple and scenic wedding day, and what better place to have a breathtaking elopement than at a park in Vancouver? Whytecliff Park, full of refreshing views, wildlife, and unique natural plants, was perfectly secluded enough for the couple to exchange personally written vows. Having only two friends accompany as witnesses, the couple shared intimate, unforgettable moments, which Simply Rose Photography captured in breathtaking photos!
Candice and Paul
Whytecliff Park, Vancouver, British Columbia
SIMPLE, SIMPLE, SIMPLE and CHEAP! We wanted to do a trip out west and to keep the wedding about Paul and I. We were very selfish and made the day all about us. We wrote our own vows and only invited our witnesses (Paul‘s friend Jesse and my friend Melissa who both live in Vancouver). We chose the park because it was beautiful and the restaurant because they were incredibly accommodating of some special dietary needs. We really just wanted to be in a beautiful scenic location somewhere in Canada and what better place than Vancouver! We booked a reso, photographer and wedding commissioner and made sure our witnesses could come. I did some wedding prep (dress, shoes, jewelry and headband) with my mom and sisters to include them in my special day.
The Couple Recommends:
Poag’s was amazing as they refinished my Gramma’s wedding ring so it looked as good as new and they were so helpful picking out Paul‘s wedding band.Rose was amazing, considering the wedding was so far away Rose was a great mediator with not only photography help but flowers (whats in season where to go, etc) and location as she knows Vancouver and surrounding area SO WELL. Granville Island flowers (GIF) did an incredible job. Finally, Hawksworth and the Rosewood Georgia Hotel made our day just incredible with their service and attention to detail. They allowed me early check in to get ready for the big day and gave us an incredible Deluxe room overlooking the Vancouver Art Museum. It really made our amazing day that much better to have a nice place to celebrate.
