Jess + Dan have been together for 12 years, the latter 8 spent traveling often for work and saying numerous goodbyes to friends and family. They set out to honor those special people with one united thank you — in the form of an epic wedding celebration! The cabins at Sunwolf in Squamish, BC was the perfect dreamy location for a weekend full of outdoor activities. Meanwhile, Filosophi Events came on to plan the gorgeous ceremony. Here’s more from Jess:
What started as an idea to bring together those we love from around the world ended with everything we could squeeze into a three-day festival wedding: glamping, silent discos, fireside guitarists, food trucks, a glitter bar, a chill tent, and two rubber horse heads. We always wanted to create something special for those who made the miles to share our love together.
Do yourself a favor and meet Jess + Dan (and witness the first look first-hand) in this utterly romantic film by Hello Tomorrow Films:
Shari and Mike captured all the details in between…to the mountains, we go!
Journey to the First Look
Isn’t Jess’ vintage dress a wonder? She found it for under $100 – and you’d never know it.
That scene! The anticipation! That look!
Circle Ceremony in the Woods
Loving all the vintage-esque colors + patterns here!
How utterly romantic are those rose bouquets by Billies Flower House? Sigh.
Just so magical!
The big moment! And lookin’ fresh in that floral tie + suit tailored to perfection by Wilvalor!
Processional: Love You Till the End by The Pogues
Recessional: You're My Best Friend by Queen
First Dance: You and Me by Penny & the Quarters
Ahh! How fun is this!
This just looks like the BEST party with the most rad people, right?!
Making Camp at the Reception
Love this vintage, travel-inspired lounge with pieces from Cahoots Creative!
Oh, do we love a good tent reception! Here are a few dreamy ways to decorate a wedding tent…and add this skylight covering in the woods to that list!
All in the details.
An intimate circle ceremony, complete with all those loved ones blessing our rings as they passed between them.
And that moment sometime before dinner, amidst all the well-wishers and emotion, when the team tasked with capturing the day on film stole us away with champagne in hand. It was a beautiful, seemingly unplanned pause that slowed us down enough to be still and soak up what had just happened.
Jess + Dan rented smoke and bubble machines for the dance floor, which was always busy thanks to Soundstripe Music!
Enjoy the experience! Once the day arrives if it ain’t all perfect you’ll still be surrounded by the best you’ve ever known.
Horsin’ around…why not?! May congrats to J + D and thanks for sharing your epic celebration with us!
