(Quadra) Island Wedding

After I wrote my final Bar Exam on Friday, I was immediately off on an 8-hour ferry/road trip to Quadra Island for a wedding. I've never been to this part of BC before but wow, is it ever beautiful!

Dress: Wilfred (Aritzia) / Wedges: Nine West (similar) / Cuff Bracelet: gift / Earrings: similar


The wedding itself was held at the family's beach front property and although the weather wasn't too great in the morning, it ended up being perfect for the ceremony and reception. There were lots of Brits in attendance, so we were greeted at the door with a delicious Pimm's cocktail (yummy!)


Then we headed down to the beach to wait for the ceremony to start. The bride was rowed in on a canoe... it seriously couldn't be more picturesque than that!


Congratulations, Val and Stu! Thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your special day!

  9. Congratulations on finishing the exam! I have never even heard of Quadra Island! It looked beautiful though! (Hi Alison's boyfriend!) My guy still won't make an appearance, but that's ok. The two of you look great! Was it hard walking on those rocks in those wedges? ;-)
