Royal Vancouver Yacht Club Wedding {Kelly + Derek}

Here’s a stunning couple that’s got some seriously impeccable taste.

Kelly and Derek tied the knot at St. Clements Anglican Church, followed by their reception at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The couple chose “beachy chic” as their wedding theme and incorporated it tastefully throughout their wedding day. They included starfish, lanterns, surfboards, a blue and white colour scheme, and even a yacht club.

The couple kindly answered some questions about their chic wedding day….

What was your favourite wedding moment?

Kelly: “The entire day was so amazing I don’t know if I have one specific favourite moment. Saying our vows was probably the most emotional part of my day, and getting a dead mouse and trap stuck to me dress was probably the funniest.”

Derek: “The moment I saw my bride for the first time when she walked up to the front steps of the church.”

What did you like most about planning your wedding?

Kelly: “I loved all our beach themed details, the starfish, lanterns, surfboard – all the little elements that reflected both Derek’s and my personalities and passions. But 14 months to plan was far too long and you end up wanting the whole thing to be over. If I could do it again, I’d do six months max.”

Derek: “Having all our plans and decisions that we had made while planning the wedding day come together leading up to and during the wedding day.”

If you could give future brides and grooms one piece of advice, what would it be?

Kelly: “Include your groom and create a day that reflects the two of you as a couple. Don’t worry about what other people did at their weddings or what family wants – make it about you and your fiancé. Include the elements that you want and don’t stress out about family or other people’s expectations.”

Derek: “Make your bride/groom’s and your desires the most important factor when making decisions about the wedding.”

Congratulations Kelly and Derek, we adore all your beautiful wedding pictures. Best wishes for the future!
