I love weddings that are full of personal details like today’s country vintage DIY wedding! From a sweet first look and unique ceremony decor, to DIY table numbers and homemade preserve favors at each placesetting, everything about Sarah and Trevor’s wedding day was full of love and happiness. And to ensure that their wedding was absolutely perfect, Sarah and Trevor enlisted the help of a fabulous wedding planner and stylist, Kailey Michelle Events. Not to mention that the photography by Matt Kennedy is gorgeous- so sit back and enjoy this lovely DIY Fort Langley wedding!

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

My favourite part of the day was when my husband and I had an intimate First Look at the bottom of the stairs of the heritage hall of where the reception was held. We exchanged hand-written letters to each other and read them before seeing each other for the first time on our wedding day. It was very special and meaningful for us both.

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

I could not have planned my wedding and kept my sanity if it wasn’t for my incredibly organized and helpful wedding planner and bridesmaids! I learned through the process of this wedding planning that I can generate a million ideas for DIY projects and I had a clear vision in my head of what I wanted to wedding look like/feel like, but without loads of help to organize my ideas- I am a mess! lol. My bridesmaids and Kailey-Michelle (my wedding planner) helped organize the day / decor with every last detail with lists, spreadsheets, and timelines. My husband and I are incredibly lucky to have had so much help for our beautiful day!

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

I chose a country vintage theme for our wedding. I love pretty things (and to me that’s teacups, pearls & lace!) and personal touches so I knew that I wanted the wedding to reflect us and our families. We collected many items from family members (grandparent wedding photos, tea cups, vintage fabrics, antique serving trays etc) and added many DIY touches. Our guests were amazed with all the personal touches and detail at the wedding.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

I think if you are to hire a wedding planner (and you should!) make sure the person is passionate about their job. This quality shone through in our wedding planner! I know that my husband and I were also very impressed with our wedding planner’s organizational skills and her ability to communicate clearly and professionally. We found that she treated our wedding day as if it were a friend or family member’s and she really made our vision come to life on the day of.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Try and go with vendors recommended by family or friends instead of trying someone new. I think you will be more likely to get great service if you do this! But most importantly, remember what the day is about – getting married to the love of your life! Try not to get to caught up in minor details and really enjoy your special day together! 

All of the DIY details are fabulous, aren’t they? I think my favorite part of this wedding is Trevor and Sarah’s super sweet first look. But I also LOVE the ceremony decor and the table numbers!

So how about you- do you love anything in particular about this “country vintage” wedding?

    I love the trend of taking photos with the bride and groom before the wedding, where they still can’t see each other, though… it seems they forgot about that tradition.

    • Sarah

      We chose to have a “first look”. We did not forget the tradition. We chose to have an intimate moment together and read letters written to each other before the ceremony. It was the one of the most special moments of our day and I’m so glad we had that time together :)

      • Kelly

        The photos look beautiful. I’m sure it was everything you hoped for and more. Grats & I wish for an infinite number of happy years together for the two of you.

    I love the bridesmaid’s dresses! Any idea where they are from?

    • Sarah

      Thank you! One dress was from Laura, one was from Esther Boutique, & I can’t remember the other two. I just told the girls the colour I wanted and they chose their own :)
