Erin & Maclean + Carlson Revisited

We had the privilege of designing another wedding for another one of Linda Carlson's children this past weekend.   We met Linda seven years ago when her daughter Diana was getting married at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.  They were such a wonderful family and we were so happy when we heard from her again this past fall for her son Maclean's wedding.  Please enjoy the first set of photos from Jamie Delaine Photography  from this past weekend at Grouse Mountain.  We love the unique touches that they incorporated into their wedding, especially their Cookie Bar (a take on the popular Candy Bar) as the bride has a love of cookies.  The bouquets also fit in with their love of Harry Potter with accents of pheasant feathers and curly willow cascading over peonies.   A magical glow was developed by the use of towering cylinder vases with willow submerged to create a elegant forest feel.  The entrance way was adorned with 10' tall willow trees arching together to create a tunnel for guests to enter the room. We look forward to working with Maclean and Erin in the future with their amazing company Hello Tomorrow Wedding Videography

All the best Erin and Maclean!

This is the amazing thank you note from Linda Carlson (Mother of the Groom):

Hi Kim, Andy, and Karlee


Wow the wedding was beautiful thanks to you guys!!!
We were so thrilled and elated to see what you all had done.
The church was perfect and Lupin's was spectacular. People were talking about it before I even got in there to see for myself. There definitely was a buzz going around about the decorating. :) :) I thought it was amazing and more importantly, so did Erin and Mac.
Who would of thought a cafeteria could be transformed into something like that.
It was magical and all the candlelight really enhanced the foggy, cozy evening it turned out to be.
You guys have done it again. I am just so sorry that I have no more children getting married. I LOVE weddings with you guys.
The happy couple are now in Hawaii relaxing and getting some sun. They loved their day, from start to finish.

Thanks again.
Linda Carlson

Samien & Chris


 Thank you Samien for the kind words!!!

"To Kim, Andy, Karlee and the amazing team at Wedding Design Studio,

Where do I begin? How can I possibly thank you enough for the stunning décor at Swaneset Resort?

The décor was incredible.  I knew it would be amazing but it was above and beyond even my expectations. Over and over, compliments such as enchanting, beautiful, fresh, romantic, unique, grande, heavenly, breathtaking……..oh, I can go on and on! 

I don’t know how you did it but you brought the dreamy softness and delicate feeling of spring indoors. I get goosebumps just thinking about walking through those majestic arching cherry blossom trees.  I can’t think of a better feeling for a bride on her wedding day.

The ceremony gave the best first impression to our guests and set the tone for the remainder of the day.  It was definitely a ‘wow’ factor!!  Surrounded by thousands of blooms with the light dancing between the branches accompanied by harp music……it was heaven.  And the décor for the reception was divine…

From the moment we first met in your office, we felt like you understood all the emotions we wanted to convey to the guests.   Something different, something true to the spring season, something memorable and evoking feelings of freshness and love.   You took all those words and helped us focus our vision.  Your creativity, cooperation, sensitivity, enthusiasm, professionalism and amazing style culminated in a day that will be in my heart forever.  You were an ABSOLUTE PLEASURE to work with, always available and attentive, incredibly meticulous and detailed yet full of joy and laughter.  It was FUN to contact you and your team; working with you was honestly one of the highlights of the wedding planning. 

From the bottom of my heart, I THANK YOU a million times over.   I tried to mention it to anyone wearing the black Wedding Design team shirt, I hope you all felt appreciated because you really were.

I wish all brides could feel as special as you made me feel. Thank you and best wishes for continued success, "
Samien (and Christopher)
