Kirkland House Wedding {Steph + Mike}

It doesn’t get much better than combining shades of pastels, handmade details, and a table loaded with cookies.

Steph and Mike got hitched at Kirkland House, Ladner, British Columbia, Canada. Steph recalls, “People really loved being able to use so much of the Kirkland House grounds for lounging and games. Since there were over 220 folks attending, I wanted everyone to be able to find interesting areas to socialize – pond lounge, stump lounge, bar hightop table lounge, dining room table, yellow mini table, picnic tables, photobooth, gazebo bar etc. Although this wedding was a lot of work, it was worth every second. We’re still hearing how much people enjoyed all the details of our wedding. The neat part as well was that, although we weren’t able to spend much time with everyone individually, through the details, everyone left knowing us a little bit better. The personal touches really do leave a lasting impression.”

Steph explained just how many hours it took to create that lasting impression, “6 days to put together all the pieces on site, 1 year to collect and make odds and ends, 12 truckloads to drop everything off, and 2.5 hours to take everything down.”

All the incredible details were captured by Meghan + Tanya from Sweet Heirloom Photography, who had this to say, “The majority of this wedding was DIY. The list truly does go on and on. Steph did an outstanding job. From the bridal hairpieces and ceremony French door entrance to the ceremony altar and head table frame backdrop. There was no detail left untouched. Each centrepiece was different and beautifully unique.

We think that Steph and Mike’s wedding was truly the most detailed oriented wedding we have ever been to. They poured so much love and effort into every single area of their big day. It made shooting their wedding so much fun. We just ran around like kids in a candy store trying to capture everything.”
