Feature Wedding ~ Nature's Bliss

Held at Whonnock lake, Breanne's vision consisted of a natural setting brought indoors. With keeping the colors neutral, you run the risk have having the design look drab. To avoid this, we used punches of bright orange to ignite a sense of excitement. Lush fabrics hung low created an intimate atmosphere in a large open setting.

Featured Couple~ Ryan & Michelle Hartt

Friday nights affair at Westwood Plateau was captured by the talented Matt Kennedy. Michelle & Ryan were such a pleasure to work with!

We met just a few weeks prior to their big day and worked diligently on bringing their visions from Basic to FABULOUS! With hearts of gold, this couple solidified why we do what we do, here at WDS.

Congrats Ryan & Michelle~ We wish you the happiest of happy endings!

Hello Andy & Kim,

We wanted to send you a quick email letting you know how blown away we were with your services. Our guests are still talking about the decor at our wedding and the majority of guests we've spoken to have said it was the most beautiful wedding they've ever attended.

When we first started looking for decor services we didn't bother contacting you because the featured weddings on your website appeared to be so high-end, we didn't think we could afford your services. Every wedding photo we saw of yours, was so overwhelmingly beautiful, we never believed ours could compare with the budget we were working with. We are so thankful we ran into you that day up at Westwood Plateau and decided to check out your warehouse. Immediately upon talking, you understood the vision we had and expanded it in ways we never could have thought of on our own. You seemed to intuitively understand what pieces of decor would make the most impact for the look we had in mind. But the most impressive part of it was that you were able to do it within our very small budget.

When we got to see the final product the day of our wedding, we were overwhelmed by the ambience you somehow created. All the little extras that we didn't plan for that you provided are so appreciated, as they added the final touches and detail that completed the room so perfectly. We will without a doubt be recommending your services to ANYONE with ANY budget that we hear is getting married. Our only regret is that we didn't come to you sooner. The stress from contacting different vendors trying to get the best deal could have been prevented by calling you first. Especially when we realize how affordable your services ended up being.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You truly made our special day one to be remembered by all. We are so incredibly grateful we met you!

Michelle & Ryan Hartt

Michelle's reaction when she walked in the room was priceless!

Featured Wedding ~ Cindy & Ray

Cindy & Ray were another one of our fabulous couples who live afar. Together we collaborated, battling the Toronto time difference, to complete their dream!
The room, held at Swan e Set, featured a Tuscany style head table and three lounges, one of which was situated on the North Terrace. Their vision encompassed gun metal greys, bold accents and glistening diamonds.

Featured Wedding~ Sheer Bliss

WDS transformed the Burnaby Rowing Pavilion into a sheer oasis. The room was bordered with luxurious fabrics, over sized chandeliers and accented with an enclosed dance room. The evening ambiance was complete with a gorgeous view of Burnaby lake.

Additonal Reel~ Rowena's Inn

We recently met up with Lisa Husick to discuss an upcoming venture we are collaborating on. While visiting, Lisa pleasantly surprised us with some shots from a wedding we worked on together this past summer at Rowena's Inn. I was lucky enough to coordinate this fabulous event!

There are no words that can truly do this wedding justice. The three day soiree commenced on Friday August 21st when the bridal party met for a welcome toast. Shortly after, the ladies left for a relaxing day at the spa followed by cosmo's in the lounge. A gentleman's day wouldn't be complete without a round of Golf at the World Renowned Sandpiper Golf Course.

That evening the couples came together for a formal reception set for an intimate group of twenty two. The dining room was set with fine linens and china and overlooked a private pool and lake, the backdrop for the evening.

Saturday morning and early afternoon consisted of lounging by the private pool while enjoying champagne and hour devours, before retreating to their rooms at 3:00 to prepare for the upcoming ceremony.

At 5:30 Saturday August 22, 2009, Seventy five lucky guests filtered through the immaculate set ceremony site, in awe of their surroundings. A cocktail reception and poolside after party awaited the anxious guests.

Kim and Lloyd wanted to set the tone for a relaxing and luxurious weekend away with their closest friends and family. The venue, decor and many little details we collaborate on brought her vision to life whole heatedly.

Thank you to Rowena's Inn and Lisa Husick for making the weekend run smoothly. Keep watch for more weddings with these fabulous vendors!

Congratulations Kim & Lloyd. We wish you a lifetime of happiness.
