Alexa & Gary tied the knot atop Grouse Mountain on Saturday. The kind of people who don’t tend to take themselves too seriously, we had a lot of laughs with them and their crew taking pictures around Coal Harbour before heading out for the ceremony.

And then there were the details – oh, the details. I loved the details. Fancy papers and ribbon were hiding if you looked – everywhere from the menu at the bar to the reserved signs on the chairs. The favours became a game as instead of names they had pictures of each guest, some recent and some not so recent, prompting a game of “where the heck am I?!” for each person as they came in. The cake table was decorated with colour coordinated buttons, mimicing the candy buttons in each cupcake. And, finally, Alexa and her mom sewed the cutest little teabags for her favours out of the coolest fabric I’ve seen in a while. Not a single piece of the decor was your typical wedding fare, and after spending some time with these two I can say that it was exactly perfect.
