Emily + Daniel

Intimate and Personal Wedding on the Beach in Canada

At a time where so many couples think a wedding should always have more details, more guests, more planning (in other words, more stress!), it feels right to share a wedding like Emily and Daniel’s. This couple had an intimate and personal wedding: 20 people in total, including the newly weds, in a beautiful location, few outstanding details and their very own distinctive style… There’s no magic recipe for a perfect wedding, but still, I happen to like this one a lot! And when you can have such a day covered by photographers like the guys of Nordica Photography, it actually kind of does feel like magic.

The wedding took place on September 10, 2013 in Tofino, British Columbia, Canada.
Dan and I are very mellow and had committed ourselves to each other long before the wedding. We decided to plan this intimate event to celebrate with our families. We contemplated having a big ordeal but it just felt wrong from the moment it was mentioned.

Name one thing you regret…

There really isn’t anything I regret, maybe not spending more time in Tofino!

… And one thing you’re really happy about/ proud of.

The thing I am most proud of is that we stuck to our guns and did what we wanted. I heard so much regret from other couples saying “I wish we had something smaller and more intimate” or “I wish it was more casual, I didn’t feel like myself”. I think people spend too much time worrying about pleasing other people when they should just be doing what makes them happy.

Kati + Matt

Canadian Wedding with Lots of Beautiful Details

I don’t want to tell you the end of this story before you even start reading it, but this couple managed to gather all the ingredients a couple could dream of for their wedding:
1/ The place. I mean, did they manage to rent a whole region for their wedding?! And those mountains… 2/ The venue – an ancient wooden waterwheel at the ceremony and a dinner under the open sky. 3/ The weather, so that the dinner under the open sky actually turned into a dinner beneath the stars. Not to talk about the a.ma.zing light that flooded around the couple for their pictures. 4/ Details, details and more details (in love with the sheet music placemats). 5/ Style: love the groom’s attire and the bride’s headpiece. 6/ Rad photographers.
Did I forget to mention something? Oh yes, sure, the car. Photography credit: Cole and Jakob of Nordica Photography (Vancouver, Canada and Stockholm, Sweden).

Kati and Matt’s wedding took place in an Okanagan village called Keremeos, about 5 hours east of Vancouver, Canada. In the words of the newlyweds:

Our wedding was a dreamy, intimate celebration with a sunset ceremony and dinner at dusk.

Name one thing you regret…

It was perfect, we wouldn’t change a thing.

… And one thing you’re really happy about / proud of.

Every last detail was a reflection of Matt and I as a couple, from the vintage sheet music placemats to the organic vegetarian family style meal.  We wanted all of the senses to be enticed with wonderful smells, soft linens, warm dessert air, twinkling lights, and delicious food.
