Heather & Steve

Several weeks ago, on June 25th, Wedding Design Studio had the pleasure of working with Heather & Steve for their wedding at Swaneset Bay Resort. The photography was done by David from Pedersson Storyteller Photography. The bride and groom also featured a photobooth by Photobooth Vancouver.

On the day of their wedding, the weather had a difficult time making up its mind. The final decision was to have the ceremony indoors, and it still ended up looking elegant and edgy, just like Heather. Just take a look at her shoes!! 

The rest of the room decor matched Heather's edgy and fun style. The tables were covered in overlays of white with velvet black vine designs. The chairs had sexy and sleek black vanity chair covers. The centerpieces were flashy silver branches with bright purple orchids displayed throughout the branches. We placed a light under each centerpiece to give it an extra pop of color.

We enjoyed creating a sexy lounge near the bar. We made a small room with walls of black velvet fabric, and featured a black chandelier in the center of this room. Inside the lounge were two contemporary white loveseats, a long black coffee table, and black and mauve throw pillows to match the rest of the room decor.

The bouquet was a dome of fresh roses with crystal pins throughout. It matched Heather's love for sparkle and glam. Steve had a matching rose boutonniere on the lapel of his jacket.

Swaneset has stunning picture windows. The bride and groom had their dance floor in front of those windows. To frame these big windows, we hung panels of sheer fabrics from each of the three center windows. In front of the center window, we also created a window of sheer fabric with a black chandelier hanging down. It gave a great backdrop for photos and dancing.

Wedding Design Studio loved working with Heather & Steve. They both have a unique style, and we really enjoyed creating a wedding that matched their special style. Congratulations, Heather & Steve, on your wedding. Best wishes to the two of you on your future together.  

Here is a note from David Pedersson, the photographer:

Hi Wedding Design Studio,

Thank you for making Heather & Steve’s Swan-E-Set Wedding so beautiful. I loved all the stylish elements like the chandelier, sitting area and drapes, it was awesome.

Destination Wedding Weekend

This past weekend, Wedding Design Studio traveled to Victoria, BC, and set-up decor for two weddings. The first wedding was a rental of crystal candelabras for clients who were getting married at the Hatley Castle. Our second wedding was a stunning reception set-up at the Westin Bear Mountain Resort. For this second wedding, we had the privilege of working with wedding planner, Renee Aird, as well as the coordinator at the Westin, Helena Price. The photographers for the Bear Mountain wedding were Emmy & Aaron of EA Photography.

While we wait to see the rest of the photos from Bear Mountain Resort, we would like to share a sneak peak of what the reception room looked like. The below photo features the centerpieces, which were fresh, tall trees brimming with hanging candles, and real crystal strands. Around the tree centerpieces were alternating height cylinder vases, with black crushed rock and floating candles. Each of the chairs had black fitted overs on them and a matching sash with a crystal buckle attached to the back. The backdrop behind the head-table was created with white sheer fabric and panels of silver platinum taffeta. Bright lights were used to up-light the fabric, giving more color and glow behind the head-table. Directly behind the bride and groom's place settings were two tall trees, curved together, in order to create an elegant canopy over their chairs.

The room decor was loved and admired by, not only the bride and groom and their guests, but also the staff who were working at the Westin Resort. It was a pleasure to work with the bride and groom, Renee, Emmy & Aaron, Helena, and the countless others who made this wedding a success. Wedding Design Studio cannot wait to see the photos from this wedding!

Stay tuned for more photos from this fabulous wedding!

Carlson Wedding || Featured

A few weeks ago, we decorated Maclean & Erin's wedding at Grouse Mountain. It has since been featured on, all thanks to the talented photographer, Jaime Delaine. Jaime did a fabulous job at capturing the Carlson wedding, and we hope to work with her again in the future.

Here is a link to the featured wedding: Forest Wonderland

Lauren & Kris

Wedding Design Studio had another fabulous weekend designing the decor and floral for a Lauren &
Kris' wedding. The wedding took place at the gorgeous Swan-E-Set Bay Resort in Pitt Meadows and was photographed by local photographer, Erin Gilmore. The couple were a pleasure to work with. They were so sweet during all of their appointments, and we loved working with them. Lauren chose pure white and a color-block of hot pink, all showered in diamonds and crystals for her decor. 

Lauren's bouquet was composed of peonies and cymbidium orchids with hot pink throats. Usually at this time of year, peonies are not available. But because of the late start to summer, we were able to create this stunning bouquet for her.

 On the headtable, we featured our new hot pink raised ribbon fabric to center the bride and groom. It helped give a pop of color to feature the newlyweds. On all the chairs we used our couture white chair covers which hugged the curves of the chairs at Swan-E-Set, creating a sexy and stylish look. This last photo was taken by Andy Raddysh.

We just received this wonderful thank you note from the bride's mother: 
Karlee & Décor

Before too much time passed- I wanted to thank you for the beautiful setting you created at Swan-E-Set this weekend for my daughter’s wedding, Kris and Lauren Chucko. We know you did many extra things over and above what they discussed with you and it was very, very, special. We have seen some preliminary pictures from Erin Gilmore and the décor really sets her photographs a glow!  We had so many comments on the decorating!  Between yourself, Lauren, Kris and Judy Chucko it could not have been planned more perfectly.   
Thank you again for all of your hard work and the extras you provided to make the wedding a success in every way.   I need to find some “curly willow” in Minneapolis for my own parties.
