Event planner Briar Johnston from Epic Events creates a farmers-market-inspired shoot at the Waterview Vancouver


"Our decor theme for this charming wedding shoot was inspired by fresh British Columbia food and local markets, and our goal was to decorate deliciously. 

"The entrance to the venue was like stepping into a farmers market with fresh B.C. produce, bringing bright hues to a modern yet rustic decor scheme. Fresh produce, herbs, breads and baking all took centre stage. The ceremony location was taken to new heights with a fabric arch framing the stunning views of Vancouver’s inner harbour. The arch was draped in a garland of solid greenery which cascaded onto the ground and was surrounded by fresh floral arrangements and lanterns."

Food elements provided by Culinary Capers Catering and Special Events, who brought to life the "feast" portion of this stunning shoot...

Pots of fresh herbs and ferns accompanied an enticing array of antipasto offerings that offered a punch of colour. Demi-baguettes wrapped in muslin and tied with name cards were placed at each setting. The floral theme on the tables was fresh and rustic, with crisp white snapdragons, roses, anemones and lots of untraditional greenery like ferns and Italian ruscus. Ghost chairs were draped with a garland of fresh greenery."

"Blush Sky Photography is known for her soft natural-light photos, and she was the perfect photographer to capture the natural vibe of our shoot."
