Charming hand-crafted Vancouver wedding: Natalie + Jason

categories Real Weddings

This is the story of a bride who did not wish for rain but prepared for it anyway. Who searched for a florist and came out feeling confident she could do the work for half the price. Who threw a wedding for under 15k. Who wore a short Sarah Seven dress when family wanted her to wear a long gown. Who crafted everything you see in the reception: banners, tablecloths, doily bunting banner, signs, invitations. And who didn’t sleep for the entire week prior to her wedding. Excitement and crafting will do that to you!








This may be a minor detail, but check out those wine bottles. Natalie and her mom had wine made for them so they could customize the labels. We love this!










Natalie’s got the cutest blog called Fun Happy Things too. Check it out!

Congrats Natalie + Jason!
