A Colorful Vintage Canadian Wedding: Mallory + Landen

Mallory + Landen were married this past summer at Saar Bank Farms in Abbotsford, BC, Canada. They are huge fans of music, art and fashion which all influenced their day. They did all the stationery and the decor themselves, with the help of their mothers. In fact, Mallory and her mom thrifted almost everyday! They also love Alice in Wonderland, so clocks + bunnies were spread throughout the barn along with tea cups and other fun knick knacks. Mallory had so much fun pulling inspiration from all the blogs out there, that she even started her own blog, Beencie, where she blogs about fashion, music, thrifting and life. Congrats to Mallory + Landen and thanks to Green Ginger Photography for the lovely photos!

LOVE the colorful tights her bridesmaids all wore! And the groomsmen don’t look too shabby either in their fun bow ties. :)

What is your favorite memory of the day? Walking down the aisle bawling my eyes out as I saw Landen standing there. That is a feeling you only get to feel once in your life and I’ve kept it in my memory.

My flowers (and all the flowers from the day) are from Anna Kent – a sweet lady with the most beautiful garden ever! Thanks Anna!

Any advice for those planning now? My advice to brides planning would be first of all to stay calm and take “no wedding stuff today” days. I found those days so relaxing! Also listen to what others have to say for ideas but if there is something you are passionate about, stay firm. Also I found a vintage notebook at a thrift store and decided to use it for all my wedding planning notes. I now have it on a shelf and love to pull it out and look at it now and then. This is a fun way to remember that time. All in all, have fun, stay calm and don’t let any little things get in your way on your special day, you may notice them, but no one else will.
