For their big day Danielle and Derek envisioned a sophisticated celebration that paid homage to their west coast roots. "We wanted elegant west coast décor with wood elements and lots of greenery," explains Danielle. For their wedding venue the couple wanted the opposite of a hotel banquet hall. "We instantly fell in love with the Roundhouse," Danielle explains. "We loved the wood beams and the exposed brick walls."
The couple filled their elegant celebration with personalized touches. They opted for six different cheesecakes instead of a traditional wedding cake and featured floral displays on both the reception hall's tables and its ceiling with a gorgeous floral chandelier. Danielle and her bridesmaids spent four days creating the glitter-covered champagne favours that did double duty as both favours and place cards. "This took multiple trips to Michaels and we had to power-wash my parents’ backyard patio afterwards because it was covered in gold spray!" she laughs.
