Pops of navy blue and gold can be seen at Bretton + Chris's romantic waterfront nuptials in Victoria British Columbia. They incorporated beautiful leafy greens throughout their uber stylish decor and included a unique oyster bar for their guests to enjoy.
It's clear to see how magical their day truly was with Kristyn Harder Photography behind the lens, and we have even more beautiful images to share with you in the full gallery here.

Magical day

From the bride: There is absolutely nothing we would have done differently! Being a photographer that has had the privilege of shooting many weddings myself, I felt very prepared and incredibly organized (with the help of French Kiss Events of course!) that our day was seriously magical. I had not a care in the world and was on cloud 9 the whole time.

Daydream and visualize

My advice for future brides with all of that in mind, would be to start daydreaming early about how they visualize their wedding - not just specific pieces, but the feel that they want to give their guests and get the little details (ie. who is bringing the chairs the chairs from the ceremony, who is keeping track of the bouquets once the ceremony is over so that they makes it to the head table) are noted and covered!

Soak it all in

Chris and I received the best piece of advice from multiple people and we made sure to add it to our special day: take a moment (both individually and together) to step back outside of your party and soak it all in; you created all of this and all of these people are here to celebrate you and your love.
