We’ve never met an exposed brick wall we didn’t like, so it’s no surprise that we’re head-over-heels for The Diamond in Vancouver where Melissa and Andrew tied the knot. The ceremony took place in front of a window adorned with a garland of greenery. Sweetheart Events brilliantly decorated the antique setting with lush natural elements and a touch of 1920s elegance with Mercury glass and vintage embellishments.
Melissa and Andrew
The Diamond, Vancouver, British Columbia
Vintage with a slight 1920s flair.
Our favourite moment was the ceremony itself, which was full of laughter and tears. The officiant is both Family and a friend and he did an amazing job adding in humour and personalizing the ceremony for us. We also had a close friend sing an acoustic song with the guitarist during the signing, which was an amazing and unforgettable moment.
The Couple Recommends:
Sachin Khona is both a great person and fantastic photographer. We really love his ability to tell stories through his images. When we look through our photos we love how we are instantly transported back to our day with his beautifully quirky images.
We booked Stephanie Reitsma for her ‘Day of Wedding’ planning, but she helped us for the entire year prior to the Wedding. We had multiple meetings to keep the planning in check along with many emails and progress updates. Her organization was amazing and worked closely with all the vendors to make sure everything went smoothly. On the day she set up the venue before the Ceremony and turned the room around for the reception, she coordinated all aspects of the day as well as the tear down at the end of the night. Although she claims she is not a decorator, we gave her multiple boxes of various decor pieces and told her to work her magic, and she did! She decorated the Diamond better than we could have imagined. She is such a gem and a pleasure to work with. We couldn’t have done it without her.
