We decided to split up our wedding into three separate celebrations so that we could soak up all the festivities without sensory overload. As two neurodivergent humans, it was important to feed ourselves with deep nourishment and support on this journey.
The theme for our wedding was fun, funky, and colorful. We’ve always liked to do things in a non-traditional way and we knew our wedding would be no different! Much like our home, we wanted to incorporate lots of color, and keep things happy, bright, and not too serious.
Melanie and Cory were getting married on Friday the 13th and wanted to take full advantage of it falling in October, so they had a Halloween themed wedding to celebrate their favorite holiday at the same time…
We both skateboard and the groom is a tattoo artist, while I’m a writer. We met at a celebration of life for a friend who was also a skateboarder and we honoured him in our speech and put his memorial board up on the wall.
The reception was at the Scout Camp so everyone was camping close by, but we were still hidden in the trees for dinner and dancing. A lot of touches were DIY and collected from favorite beaches.
This tiny backyard wedding in East Sooke, BC was a labor of love planned in a short period of time. Lauren and Cohen love ink, cats, plants, and great vegan food, so their wedding reflected them perfectly. Don’t miss the epic forest-filled backyard (who has a backyard like this?!), seriously gorgeous vegan food spread, reception space filled with lush textures, and the real star of this show, their cat Yoshi.
I wanted to get married in mountains with my closest friends and family there to celebrate with us. I wanted a dress with lots of colour and floral print, and after much searching I found the most amazing gown — huge green leaves, purple hydrangeas, and radishes (yes you read that right — radishes!). I based my colour palette on the dress, having flowers match the floral print, white decor, and of course, adding radishes to my cake and flowers.
