Becky and Jeremy's Mad-Men-inspired June wedding has gained quite a bit of attention. Most recently, it has been featured on Canada's boutique wedding site Style Me Pretty Canada. With a look back to their original posts, HERE I, HERE II, HERE III however, I realized their awesome vendors and some behind-the-scenes bride-notes weren't included. They're too good not to note; enjoy!
Wedding date: June 17, 2011
Wedding theme/motif: Late 50's
Approximate number of wedding guests: 35
Your best moment: My favorite moment that stands out was when our neighbors sang us a song which they said was a Rossland wedding tradition. It was really cute and thoughtful!
His best moment:
Wedding song: I walked down the aisle to Harvest Moon by Neil Young. Honestly, I wasn't even going to have a song and at the last minute this one popped into my head. I have always loved this song.
Favourite wedding detail (favour, cake, food, band, etc.): Food - Our friend is a chef and she offered to do the food as a gift to us. I let her make whatever she wanted to and it was so fantastic!
Advice to others: . Find people/vendors you can trust and let them do their jobs. Just enjoy your day. So much work goes into a wedding and the day goes by so fast. Make sure you have time to take it all in and enjoy yourself.
Most unexpected moment: When my grandmother almost passed out and had to go by ambulance to Trail! She was ok and even came back for cake and a dance.
The day in 3 words: Heartwarming, Fun, Thoughtful
Honeymoon: We went on a mini-moon to the Davenport Hotel in Spokane, WA for 3 days. We didn't have the time for a big getaway but wanted to have a couple of days, just the two of us, after all the craziness of the wedding. We relaxed, ate room service and went to the spa. It was fantastic! Such a beautiful old hotel. We are planning a trip to Italy for sometime next year
