A Wonderful Wedding


So you’ve heard me talk about this wedding I’d had over the summer – my Brother’s wedding actually. I was honoured to be asked to look after table decor. Usually the grooms family is not asked to be all that helpful so, since this is my only brother, I jumped at the chance to help.


I thought I’d share a few photos of the wedding set up and table place settings with you. This is the head table. The wedding was very small (less than 40 people) and took place on Galiano Island, BC. It is an absolutely lovely spot. So, because this was a destination wedding, we had to plan and pack every little item (including all the tables, flowers, decor, etc). If you forgot one thing, you were hooped!


And here is a side view. Don’t you love those paper flowers that are holding up the swag on the front?



And a couple of close ups of the table settings. Everyone got their own “chair” with their name and relationship to the bride/groom. In addition, there is a different love-themed quote on each and every napkin. My mom did wonders with the flowers which are all in teapots and teacups. Lastly, we made little sweet treat mason jars with candy sticks on each table.




And a couple of close ups of the venue. The wedding ceremony took place in a different are of the resort, this is just the reception area.



Thank you so much for sticking around and checking out these photos! Still some great wedding projects to share in the days and weeks to come.
