Delta Budget Wedding: Ellie + Tyson

Delta Budget Wedding: Ellie + Tyson

I’m pleased to share with you Ellie and Tyson’s summer wedding. The couple were married on a sunny Sunday, the 27th of July, 2014 at Cammidge House in Delta. The couple wanted their wedding to reflect their personalities and it was executed very well. It was a team effort… it had to have been because there were so many DIY projects involved. Family and friends helped out the couple with decor and setup and as you can see even a little bit goes a long way. The mason jars with wildflowers look very adorable and really fit their theme quite well. Another awesome thing about this wedding is that 3 of my Vancity Vendors are involved: Epic Events, Tomasz Wagner Photo & Video, and Truffles Fine Foods. It was very interesting to find out from Briar that while the couple spent modestly on most aspects of the wedding, a stronger focus on photography, day of coordination and catering was placed. It’s advice that I give to friends and readers all the time: find what’s important to you and spend on those, have a compromise on the rest. The couple preferred a unique photojournalistic style for their photos, amazing food was a very high priority as they wanted their guests to enjoy the meal, and of course someone to help tie everything together and ensure there are no problems at the end. A lot of DIY and even an IPod DJ helped offset the costs and as you can see it worked out pretty well. A few words from Briar and Tomasz:

“Ellie and Tyson were, perhaps, the most relaxed and casual couple I have ever worked with, and their wedding day was perfect because of it. While they wanted their wedding day to be elegant and fun, they still wanted the day to feel like ‘them.’ I love that they wanted to wake up together, make breakfast at their home, and take their dog for a stroll at the beach before the festivities began. My team was on hand to manage the vendors, overall set up and wedding day timeline, but they had a number of friends and family on-site to help with the decor and details. Ellie had spend so much time on the little decor elements of the wedding that it was great to have her bridesmaids, who know her so well, help to execute all of the set up. It was a Sunday wedding and they knew their guests were not planning on staying into the wee morning hours. We put a lot of emphasis on an active cocktail hour by providing the guests with lawn games, drinks and canapés, and lots of shady spaces to sit!” ~ Briar Johnston, Epic Events

“Ellie and Tyson invited us to join them in their relaxed and intimate wedding at the height of summertime in Vancouver. We knew the feeling and mood of the place and time of their wedding were important considerations for Ellie and Tyson. So, to help set the tone for the day while adding a personal touch to their images and film, we all spent the morning enjoying a cool breeze and energetic run around the tidal flats. This was where all the fun and laughter would start and continue well into the evening. The setting at Cammidge House fit the tone of their celebration in many ways (simple, understated, quaint) but we also noticed how well Ellie, Tyson, and their friends injected their personalities and incorporated details to make the experience extra special and decidedly fun for guests—from the bubble send-off and interactive reception games to the cotton candy machine and giant Jenga. Beyond all these details though, Ellie and Tyson’s wedding was full of the moments and people that make a celebration great—we had a great time teasing out these personalities but also documenting the day as it naturally unfolded.” ~ Tomasz Wagner, Tomasz Wagner Photo & Video
