Rustic Oceanfront Vancouver Island Wedding at Dolphins Resort

February 9, 2019 | Junebug Weddings

Rebecca and Josh’s intimate wedding at Dolphins Resort was a rustic dream from start to finish! The waterfront ceremony space and the woodsy grounds set the stage for a wildly romantic day. The couple used antique rugs, wooden chairs, and potted plants for their ceremony, and relied on the rustic interiors, minimal details, and pretty florals design by Rhosyn Collective to set the tone for a cozy and fun reception. The bride’s boho-chic Pearl & Dot dress and greenery crown, along with the bridesmaids’ Show Me Your Mumu frocks were the perfect complement to the woodsy, whimsical setting. Kimberley Kufaas Photography nailed it in capturing every unique element of this Vancouver Island wedding!

The Couple:

Rebecca and Josh

The Wedding:

Dolphins Resort, Vancouver Island, Canada

The most important part of planning our wedding was for all of our friends and family to join us in celebrating our love for each other. Our closest friends and family were invited to stay with us at our venue for the whole weekend – we wanted it to feel like a never-ending, fun and love filled family reunion, and we think we accomplished that!

Vancouver Island is our happy place – we feel at home there and we couldn’t imagine not getting married by the ocean. We had stayed at our venue on a family vacation back in 2012 and it always stayed in the back of my mind as a dream location to have my wedding one day!

Everyone always says, “Don’t stress about the small details,” which is totally true and accurate, and I will tell every future bride this! But another piece of advice would be if you want to break away from wedding traditions, then do it! Make your wedding your special day and don’t follow the standard wedding checklist to a tee.
