Nuptials don’t get much more romantic than this summer wedding in Aldergrove, British Columbia. Jillian and Dan wed on a sunny Friday afternoon at the Aldergrove Church with 130 of their friends and family members in attendance. The venue’s cool slate grey decor added a modern twist to the fun-filled summer wedding. The reception hall was beautifully decorated with gold handmade tissue garlands that the bride constructed with the help of her cousins which contributed to the luxe feel of the romantic celebration. Dinner was served at tables adorned with soft beige linens and tall vases filled with white blooms that perfectly accented the sentimental feel of the summer wedding. Guests lovingly signed the couple’s personalized guest book as they entered the grand hall and indulged in a selection of delicious sweet treats instead of a traditional wedding cake. As the night came to an end, Jillian and Dan thoughtfully handed out pretty potted violets from a local greenhouse as favours for family and friends to commemorate the day.
