Vi dånte ganske mye og enda litt til, da vi fikk se bildene fra bryllupet til Jordan & Dana, som giftet seg 10. august 2013 i Canada. Et superkult låvebryllup, med fantastiske detaljer og atmosfære. Dette bør inspirere mange brudepar i Norge og Skandinavia. Dekorative skilt, vakre fonter, blomster, omgivelser, bordkort, gaver til gjestene og ikke minst det utrolig stilige og vakre brudeparet. Og til og med en av våre drømmebiler; Ford Pick Up - we like! Alt så perfekt fanget av noen av våre absolutte favoritt fotografer; som holder til i vårt flotte naboland Sverige; Nordica Photography. Finn rem noe kaldt i glasset og la deg rive med av dette herlige bryllupet.


Dana and Jordan celebrated their marriage with friends and family at the Orchard, an outdoor wood frame pavilion located in the Fraser Valley; their theme, romance in the countryside, inspired by the classic romance of Pride and Prejudice, was captured in some seriously stunning photographs by Nordica Photography.

Dana and Jordan were married early in the afternoon at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Chilliwack. The couple made the decision to be married in a Catholic Church to honour the tradition on both sides of their families.

The evening reception began with guests walking through a handcrafted arch, constructed by a dear friend, James Oddy, who created it for his own wedding three summers prior to Jordan and Dana's wedding. The arch was actually slated to be torn down before their wedding, Dana had asked if it could be spared, and luckily, it was saved for their wedding; the archway became such a special focal point of Jordan and Dana's wedding: it was decorated with greenery that was hand clipped and strung together by bridesmaids Amy Bried and Shannon Johnson the day before the wedding, soft blush fabric hung from the sides, and an antique chandelier dangled in the center. Blending with the natural atmosphere, the color palette consisted of blush, peach, cream, and lush greens. The theme was brought to life by weaving these colours into every aspect from the sheer nude drapery the bride's mother created especially for the tall pavilion posts to the peach dahlias and cream Queen Ann's lace used in the centerpieces.

To create an air of romance, the bride and groom incorporated a variety of textiles, including peach and cream satin ribbons which were tied to the back of chairs, cream lace tablecloths, and over seventy-five handmade peach and nude tissue paper pompoms crated by the groom's mother, which were hung from the venue's ceiling alongside the warm glow of the garden lights.

The bride and groom wanted to incorporate things from family who were no longer with them. So, they incorporated pieces like the antique chandelier, which was a family heirloom passed down from the bride's Opa, as were the chairs the bride and groom sat in at the head table, the blue 1978 Ford shortbox truck was restored by the groom's grandfather, and the catholic pendants that adorned the bride's bouquet were once her grandmother's. Other details of the wedding that are very special and unique.

Most of the wedding was DIY and entirely planned and curated by the bride living overseas in England while attending law school. Thus, help from family and friends was essential to the event going off without a hitch. And, friends and family of the bride and groom came together in a really big way to make the day unique and truly special.

The maid of honour hand illustrated the bar sign, the bride's mother and sister baked apple pies for dessert and her father made mason jar holders which lined the entranceway into the pavilion, a close friend, Vanessa, and her sisters, created all centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, and all other floral arrangements throughout the ceremony and reception venues, and many other friends and family of the bride and groom's came together to do so many things for the couple, like putting together programs, tea staining escort card tags, creating favors, stringing lights, tying ribbons, and making hors d'oeuvres. One of the bride’s longtime friends, Kati, even offered to coordinate the day of the wedding for Dana and Jordan, without which, the day would not have been possible. As a result, the day was genuinely intimate and full of love.
