Handcrafted Barn Wedding In Vancouver, BC

country wedding

After her parents surprise wedding at a family function Lily had a lot to live up to when she started planning her own. But this gorgeous Canadian wedding on her parents property was nothing to shake a stick at.

With a caravan of classic cars that pulled right up to the ceremony, a memorial table to commemorate those that could not be there, and an entire dessert table weighed down with homemade treats from her family you can bet that there were plenty of memories made that day! Don’t let us spoil it for you because you can see even more of these fabulous images captured by Erica Chan Photograph in the full gallery here.

words from the vendor

From Erica Chan Photography:
Her parents have an old barn where the reception and dancing took place, and the ceremony was in one of the paddocks out front. They had beautiful wooden benches for the guests to sit on, a collection of eclectic vintage rugs lining the aisle leading up to a gorgeous outdoor carpeted alter space in front of a home made wooden backdrop adorned with gorgeous flowers on stumps and a beautiful white hydrangea wreath. The bride and bridesmaids arrived in old classic cars, driven right up to the aisle. During the cocktail hour, they had a wood-fired pizza oven with delicious pizza made to order, bags of kettle corn, veggies and dip in cute mason jars, a beer tap on an old truck, champagne, wine, drinks – lots of delectable goodies for their guests.

Dinner reception was held in the tennis court area, which had been decorated with thousands of hanging string lights. Long tables were decorated with burlap table runners, jars and bottles with burlap and lace, and different vintage antique plates at each setting, from their antique collection. Jars of honey and jam were tagged with the names of guests to mark their seats. And all the chairs were a mix of vintage and new to make for a very beautiful and unique scene.

All the meals were served family style, in la creuset casserole dishes, wood platters and cast iron pots and pans. The amazing dessert table full of handmade pies, crumbles and bars were all made by Lily’s aunt and Iain’s mother. Lily made a cute little L&I fabric rag bunting to hang on the mini wedding cake itself.
