Fort Langley Hall Wedding | DIY Vintage Wedding Details

January 31

Here at KME, it’s all about the details! Whether its subtle with sentiment or flamboyant with fuss, our mission is to set your love story on fire. We believe no two weddings are alike, period. Because, regardless of if  you’ve seen something similar, it’s how you make it your own and present your perfectly crafted fairytale to honoured wedding guests. It’s our goal to hear the words, “Wow! It’s so _____ + _____ !”  Insert your names.

This wedding was no exception: the home-spun Fort Langley Hall Wedding of Trevor and Sarah Street.

This couple was introduced to me through past clients, who after hearing Sarah’s vision for the day, recommended KME. With one of our specialties being vintage nuptials, I was giddy to get working on this heavily detailed, hand crafted affair.  Through story boards, crafting nights and ample hours of anitquing, we ensured Sarah’s heart was hand-stamped in every aspect of the wedding.

The ceremony was held on Thanksgiving weekend, comfortably in Sarah’s childhood backyard. A distressed  antique ladder display served as their alter and was adorably dressed with bunting garlands and  burlap and lace wrapped steps.  Adorned mason jars over flowed with garden florals, as did the aisle way, lined with vintage wine crates stuffed with bundles of baby’s breath. Guests chairs were tied with vertical burlap bows and given silk shawls for warmth upon arrival.

After the ceremony, guests were ushered to Fort Langley Hall, where the space had been transformed from a simple blank canvas, to an indoor garden party. Long harvest tables bordered the space, mimicking the details presented earlier in the day. Doily placemats lined the tables with sweet calligraphic sayings and tiny jars of Sarah’s mom’s jam, sat proudly as take home favours.

Vintage teacups candles illuminated the settings space, eloquently nested on hand sewn table runners. And an outpouring of loose garden arrangements brought fun and whimsy to the room.

Their welcome and sweets table had guests swooning with an over-flow of sentimental details:  Pictures of family members on their wedding days, an assortment of her family’s signature dessert recipes and  an heirloom wine box for guests to write notes to the couple to open on their 5th wedding anniversary- just to name a few! 

But the fun and personalization didn’t stop there! The theatre stage dance floor was anchored by an elaborate hand-made pin wheel photo booth backdrop, framed with vignettes of dress up goodies and props. The evening ended with a late night portrait session for the girls and I had FAR too much fun running around like a crazy woman, sparklers in hand, while photographer, Matt Kennedy, encouraged the ladies to let out their inner divas!

And there you have it friends, a beautiful example of how your wedding can tell your story through personalized details and create the ultimate guest experience.

But don’t feel overwhelmed! There’s lots to consider and a never-ending stream of possibilities. It’s our job to help you! Together we’ll help translate, sort and enhance your ideas into a perfectly crafted love story set on fire.

Let’s get started, shall we?!
