We love it when a super rad venue can act as inspiration for a gorgeous editorial. In this case, The Brooklyn Gastown in Vancouver, Canada – a rustic, exposed brick venue – set the wheels in motion for a styled indoor celebration that was filled with masculine décor, lush greenery, and lots of candlelight. The team behind the setting (The Apartment Photography, Sweetheart Events, Dushan Flowers + Bespoke Decor Rentals) set out to celebrate the love story of two ultra stylish grooms (dressed in head-to-toe TopMan!) on their big day.
Stephanie of Sweetheart Events says, We chose an intimate area for the exchanging of rings and followed the couple capturing them candidly as they walked the cobble stone streets of Gastown. We then did more styled photos inside the gentleman’s lounge designed by our décor team giving a perfect balance between vintage and pretty but in a masculine setting. Our couple also enjoyed old fashioned cocktails at the bar with marquee letters in the background and ended the night with the first dance underneath a showering of heart shaped confetti!
We love the guys’ slightly more casual style with one dressed in a print and great accessories like that skinny tie, bow tie and pocket square!
Old Fashioned’s are always a good idea!
We’re in love with this candlelit sweetheart table! The beautiful rustic, reclaimed wood table draped with a luscious greenery garland was a perfect match for gold accented place settings, a chandelier of greenery and gold wine bottles with taper candles.
Seriously, so gorgeous + romantic!
Stephanie closes with a bit of spot-on advice, The advice and inspiration that I hope couples take away from this is to remember your love story, why you are getting married and to personalize the day into one that is true to you. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and be different.
Such a fun one! Big thanks to the talented team below for sharing!!
