Artsy Vancouver wedding: Laurin + Courtney

Categories   Real Weddings

Keeping with our theme of little somethin’ different this week, we present Laurin and Courtney’s post wedding portrait session.

They had a lovely vintage style wedding at an art gallery in Vancouver, but couldn’t get the photographers they wanted for their actual wedding day. Instead they booked them (Gucio Photography) for family shoot, in their wedding best, a few days later. And as a bonus, it was much less expensive than having their top photogs come shoot their entire wedding, while still allowing them to have beautiful photos of their celebration. Plus isn’t it fun to get all dressed up again, when you’re not frantic and stressed and all of that?

Laurin and Courtney are both vintage scooterists so they incorporated a 1960’s scooter into their shoot, which took place at their original venue with Laurin’s pretty paper tissue balls still hanging. To quote Laurin, “I love how some of the pictures are very contemporary and others look like they came straight out of 1965.”

Laurin wears a Jenny Yoo bridesmaid dress in white. And Courtney wears a tailored suit from London.

Gorgeous!! Thanks so much for sending your beautiful family and wedding our way, Laurin! We love every bit.

Lovely and ideal couple. They are so beautiful.

Dennis @ Wholesale Fresh Flowers on Jul 15, 2010

What a great idea to have a post wedding photo session. Good point about there being time to get ready for the session without all the frenzy accompanied on the wedding day. And if you can get a better price by working with the photographers schedule then that's even better.

These two are so adorable! I'd love to know where that lovely headpiece is from, my sister's looking for one just like it.

The photography on this Wedding is incredible! It's vintage meets modern and you can really see the couple's personalities shining through:) I'm also loving the bursts of green & yellow!

Oh WOW I love those green, yellow and white decorations! What a fabulous combination of colors.

thank you for the lovely comments! we couldn't be happier with our wedding pictures. the gucio girls were a lot of fun to work with and did wonders with camera hating folks like us. there is a part of me that wishes we had our photographers there on our big day, especially to capture all those special moments and diy details but we had a night wedding and we didn't want to see eachother before hand. the money we saved went towards a photobooth rental which definitely captured the spirit of the party. for those of you who are interested, the fascinator came from It was custom made to order. It came with a removable birdcage piece but at the end of the day it just didn't work with my hair. the tissue balls were an idea i got from Martha Stewart (of course!). i wanted our reception to have a vintage prom feel to it so the retro honeycomb chandelier was perfect with out being too kitchy: thanks again for the kind comments!
