A Gorgeous Vintage Wedding in Victoria, B.C.


Guests could feel the love between Trina and Luke at their gorgeous vintage wedding in Victoria, British Columbia. The couple, who first met as teens at summer camp, threw a fun-filled celebration on October 15, 2011, for 160 of their friends and family members. Lovely DIY details and antique wedding décor appeared as the focal point of the nuptials, giving the celebration a classic 1920’s feel. The nuptials began at St. Peter and St. Paul Anglican Church, which featured prominent stained glass windows and old-fashioned wooden pews. Following the couple’s recital of their vows, the party moved to the Union Club of British Columbia, where the newlyweds and their guests wined, dined, and danced into the wee hours of the night. Cute chalkboard table numbers and homemade vintage wedding picture frames with damask wallpaper adorned the centres of tables, which were covered in soft, cream linens. Friends and family members happily indulged in sweet treats while chatting over the soothing light of pillar candles and received homemade jam in mini mason jars as they left. Small floral arrangements made of succulents and dusty miller blooms completed the romantic feel of this stunning vintage wedding celebration.
