Ruth & Oliver’s Rustic Orchard Wedding

I utterly adore Ruth & Oliver’s beautiful orchard wedding! In fact as soon as photographer Abbye told me about the details I knew I’d be loving it. “When I first met up with Ruth to talk about her wedding she brought along a huge glass jam jar. After talking over details Ruth pulled out the jar and told me “I know this might sound strange, but I just want to have jam jars everywhere…”  to others it might have sounded strange, but I totally got what she was going for.”

“On the day of the wedding Ruth had found not only hundreds of old glass jam jars but a variety of old type writers, chalk boards, and suitcases.  Many of the small details were found by Ruth at various thrift and antique stores around Vancouver.” 

Huge thanks to Abbye for sharing these today

    i absolutely love everything about this! the dress and headpiece are gorgeous!i love the typewriter and chalkboard idea…absolutely beautiful and creative.

  3. I am very proud to have been the boutique that Ruth chose to purchase her gown and headpiece. It was a leap of faith on both our parts, for until these photo’s I have never seen or met the bride. She was so trusting and patient with the entire process and now I see that she is absolutely beautiful also.

    Thank you again Ruth and Olivier for allowing “Powder” to be part of your day.
