BC’s Connors Family Retreat is just gorgeous inside and out … and I loved the relaxed vases of flowers that were placed all around the venue:
Despite the weather, spirits were high. I love Emilie’s huge smile as she processes into the tent with her parents for the short but lively ceremony:
And I love this shot of Alexei. These two were so excited!
Cocktail hour was back in the main house. There were lots of lovely DIY details, including these sweet escort cards … and a signature cocktail … and I had to include a photo of this funny and slightly creepy dummy that was in the entrance hall!
Before dinner, we grabbed an opportunity for some couples photos with Alexei and Emilie – the light was gorgeous in this spot:
The reception decor was gorgeous. At the place settings there was a personalized photo card with a message for each guest. It’s such a thoughtful way to thank your guests for coming.
Some sweet and very fun first dance photos …
… and throughout dinner there were toasts. I have to give a special shout-out to Alexei’s mom Denisa whose toast had me dying with laughter. 🙂
The rest of the evening was spent dancing to band Eye to Eye – very fun and super upbeat. You’d never know that there was a storm raging outside!
