Nautical & Retro Wedding in Canada

Sarah and Drew wanted their wedding to really showcase where they grew up (and hosted their wedding): Newfoundland and Labrador. Although they had been living in Alberta for a number of years, they wanted their wedding to reflect their love of the most easterly province of Canada. “We had been living in Alberta for a number of years, and wanted our wedding to reflect our East Coast roots, so we included elements that evoked the island everywhere we could, “said Sarah. “The aisle was lined with rubber boots, we used a lobster trap as a card holder and the reception tables were named after Newfoundland communities. The head table was named Heart’s Content.”

“We also wanted the wedding to have a retro vibe, and that was reflected in the outfit choices.

The groomspeoples’ suspender and polka dot tie combination matched us perfectly.”

Kristi and Doug met through Kristi’s best friend Amanda. Doug called Kirsti his unicorn because he thought she was a mythical creature that he’d never be able to have, but luckily she totally fell in love with him too! Their wedding theme was nautical, with a vintage classic feel, and they were inspired by anchors, rope and cool classic colours.

Having all of our family and friends there sharing in such a vulnerable moment with us left us feeling an so high.”
