“We are dedication to our craft, community and clients so that we can provide the best service possible.”

“Although my time with Tonya and Ian was relatively short, it was very enjoyable! Their wedding was so uniquely special. It truly was the joining of two families. It definitely was a more intimate one with their families and really close friends.

Right from the time I arrived at the Fairmont Pacific Rim to photograph the details and getting-ready portion on the ladies’ side to the releasing of the lanterns in the evening on the yacht, it was a truly special wedding.

Their “first-look” was a new experience for me! Ian and the boys had taken their boat from West Vancouver to meet Tonya at the dock at Harbour Green Park in Coal Harbour. Now that’s arriving in style! Ian was smitten all over again when he arrived and saw Tonya in her wedding gown for the first time.

After a the family and wedding portrait session, everyone headed over to Tavola restaurant for a private dinner. Shortly after, we headed over The Wedding Yacht (Sunset Bay Cruises) to get ready for their gorgeous ceremony on the roof of the yacht. We were delighted to see a familiar face in Marilyn Knipp who officiated the ceremony. Interestingly enough, CTV was filming a special on weddings and following Marilyn around that day! So with filming alongside our friends at FIll in the Blank Studios and the CTV crew, there wasn’t a shortage of cameras at this wedding!

The boat had set sail and the ceremony went off without a hitch, now it was time for a little mingling and cocktails for the bridal party and the guests. As the sun set, the formal part of the reception begun. There were fantastic speeches from both Tonya’s and Ian’s kids, close friends and siblings… a touch part of the evening as the big day started to come to a close. The traditional first dance was on the roof deck of the yacht which was now transformed into a dance floor. And as mentioned earlier, the night ended with Tonya and Ian lighting several lanterns in dedication to loved ones that could not be there that night with them.

An amazing day and a great throwback wedding post that we can share with you today. Enjoy some of our favs from Tonya and Ian’s big day.”

Hycroft Manor: Vancouver Wedding Venue

Hycroft Manor: At the heart of the city

Hycroft Manor is home to the University Women’s Club of Vancouver. As part of the Canadian Federation of University Women, the UWCV has a history of promoting education and rights for women so they can further their education and opportunities.

A total of 26 different awards are given each year to UBC, SFU, BCIT, Emily Carr University, Langara, Burnaby North Secondary, and Britannia Secondary. Donations and funds are raised throughout the year to support this great program as well as taking an interest in public affairs and educational issues. Members have worked together to be a common voice in support of women in all situations tackling issues such as homelessness, human trafficking and prostitution, safety of women, and child poverty. They also work to develop policy on many issues related to education, status of women, equality and human rights, and the environment.

Founded in 1907, the UWCV at that time consisted of eight young female graduates from Eastern Canada and the USA and was only the second University Women’s Club in Canada. Longing for a clubhouse of their own, the women of UWCV found Hycroft for sale in 1962 and the women purchased the mansion outright with cash which they raised on their own for $32,000. Built by General Alexander Duncan McRae to exacting standards and completed in 1911, it was once the centre of the social scene in Vancouver. The restored Hycroft remains as an amazing landmark and a is great venue for events, weddings and social gatherings.

The outdoor terrace and gardens are beautiful for very light and bright ceremonies guarded by stone pillars and sculptures. The indoor ceremony room is filled with old-world charm, mouldings and really gives a romantic feel, like being taken back in time. It’s an ideal venue, rain or shine and is sure to delight all its guests.
