Meet the adorable Meka and her sweety Ryan! This playful couple is tying the knot this coming Saturday at Whonnock Lake, one of our favourite naturally rustic settings in the lower mainland. The KME team is eager to bring their DIY rustic vintage nuptials to life and to give Meka the opportunity to play bride, while we set the stage for her once upon a time!
It’s our great pleasure to introduce you to this awesome duo, who have plans for a family and friends focused celebration, where magic happens on the dance floor!
1. Describe yourselves as a couple, in 3 words
Infatuated, affectionate, genuine
2. What’s your perfect Sunday
Sleeping in, enjoying breakfast together and spending the day gallivanting around our beautiful city; finishing the day with a family dinner, followed by snuggling on the couch with our favorite wine.
3. Paint us a picture of your wedding day, as you see it in your dreams
A beautiful and serene day surrounded by our closest family and friends, complete with wonderful food, drinks and dancing.
4. What special touches are you adding to your wedding, to create an authentic and genuine portrayal of your two hearts?
We have put a lot of effort into the little things while striving to maintain an element of simplicity; a large portion of our décor is DYI crafts – we can actually say these involved some blood, sweat and tears, but only tears of laughter.
5. What have you learnt so far in your wedding planning that you could offer as advice to other brides to be?
DIY crafts will always take at least twice as long (if not more) as you expect they will. Ask for help and delegate responsibilities at the beginning of the planning process – if done too late when it’s down to the wire, then sometimes the time spent advising and instructing is almost equal to completing the task yourself.
6. What drew you to Kailey Michelle Events and excites you most about working with them?
Aside from their vintage rustic style that fit my vision, the little things speak volumes. KME is truly passionate about their work and it shows along with their professionalism in every meeting and email. As a perfectionist and control freak, I feel comfortable passing along the onus of creating a beautiful day to KME (which says a lot!) knowing that they will exceed my expectations.
A special shout out to Love out Loud Studios for capturing these beautiful engagement photos! We’re looking forward to working with you on Meka and Ryan’s special day.
Be sure to follow along on instagram this Saturday, for behind-the-scene sneak peeks of their soiree!
