I can’t resist it! I’m posting another stunner from last summer at none other than the gorgeous Hatley Castle.
Figured I’d go for a hat trick – 3 posts in a row of one of my favourite venues on Vancouver Island!
From the moment I met Crystal and Dan, with Barb from French Kiss Events, I knew this wedding was going to be so beautifully presented. Picture perfect for a castle setting with so many beautiful details…
I just love to meet couples who are so in tune and sweet with each other. Crystal and Dan were no exception.
This colour palette that Crystal had envisioned of soft lavenders, violets and ivories, with minimal hints of blush, was just perfect – even for a late summer wedding. It complimented the castle and surrounding gardens so beautifully!
Oooh that dress!! I feel as though these pictures should be in a Fairytale Storybook. So stunning!
I’m sure that Winston did his best to steal the show – Just look at that dapper lil pup!‘The Meaning of Flowers’ – I truly believe that the flowers a woman chooses to carry on her wedding day reflect her values in life, love and the future she is creating – (even if this is done subconsciously). We are all drawn to certain flowers and colours – that’s what makes us all unique….
Here are the flowers and their meanings for Crystal’s bouquet:
Purple Rose ♥ Enchantment
Dahlia ♥ Enduring Grace
Hydrangea ♥ Heartfelt Emotion
Mathiola ♥ You Will Always Be Beautiful To Me
Lisianthus ♥ Appreciation
Statice ♥ Rememberance & Success
Blush Carnation ♥ Love of a Woman
Purple Carnation ♥ Pride & Beauty
Dusty Miller ♥ Happiness & Delicacy
Did I mention that there was a flower curtain behind the cake table!? Oooohhh – what a stunning backdrop!!
Can EVERYONE please consider this for their wedding?? Gah!

I also wanted to give a major shout out to French Kiss Events team for this beautiful wedding – they consistantly create such a beautiful experience for our couples. I happened to be out of town for the actual day of this wedding, so Barb and I had arranged that all of the pieces would be pre-created and her crew would set it all up perfectly. What a fabulous feeling it is to work with such talented people and feel absolute confidence that the end result will be spectacular.
Congratulations Crystal & Dan – Wishing you both a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness always!
