There is So Much to Love in This DIY Pipe Shop Venue Wedding in North Vancouver

September 18, 2018 | Junebug Weddings

Set within a restored heritage building in the shipyards of North Vancouver, Tijana and Mark’s wedding at Pipe Shop Venue was bursting with character and charm. The bride, who owns the successful lifestyle blog A Plentiful Life, planned the entire affair and took on the labor of love to create nearly every detail, from the plexiglass signage to the invitations to the copper ceremony arch. What the couple couldn’t find, they bought at thrift stores and second-hand shops or rented from The Little Wedding Shoppe, and the result was a captivating design that was as eclectic as it was elegant. The bright, open feel of the venue not only lent a hand in adding charm to the overall look, but it afforded Stacie Carr Photography the most beautiful light to capture every inch of this wedding, where industrial, rustic, modern, and vintage vibes worked together in brilliantly designed harmony!

The Couple:

Tijana and Mark

The Wedding:

Pipe Shop Venue, North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Most important to us in planning our wedding was to make it about our guests, all the people we love. We had games, signature cocktails, non-stop food, and live music to create a memorable experience. We also wanted to get married close to home and have these special places as part of our future.

The wedding planning advice we would like to share is: ask for help! You’ll want to do everything but those friends and family who are stepping up to assist you with your big day, say yes! Also to really do your research on each venue you’re considering. Create a budget for each one, this really helped us visualize the costs associated with each venue.
