A Cozy Winter Wedding
Michelle and Garret were the winners of our Winter Wedding Giveaway and celebrated their love at Nourish Kitchen & Cafe in Victoria, B.C.
It all began with a giveaway...
Last August, we were dreaming up ways to give couples otherwise unable to have their dream wedding, their dream wedding. We were discussing the We had discussed giving away a free wedding, but weren't sure how to accomplish this. We were struck with gratitude when Nourish Kitchen & Cafe graciously donated their beautiful 1888 heritage home-turned-restaurant in James Bay as a wedding venue, promptly began planning our Winter Wedding Giveaway!
Choosing a couple was not easy; we received so many heartfelt stories of support, patience, intuition, celebration, loss, grief, and determination, but finally we chose Michelle and Garret as our couple. Their story is one of unconditional love and spoke to finding joy, despite the difficulties of raising a young family, managing careers and ecomonic pressure.
Nourish truly is the perfect wedding venue. It's historical charm, beautiful dining area with gorgeous bay windows (which we converted into the ceremony) and quirky vintage fixtures made for a picturesque indoor wedding on a cold winter's day, and Jill's soft acoustic melodies as Michelle floated down the stairs toward Garret made everyone's heats melt.
We held the ceremony in the large bay window at the front of the house and converted the dining area on the main floor into a casual cocktail reception. Allison's cake was delicious and Nourish served gluten free cupcakes and champagne while the children scampered around.
Without these people, we could not have made this happen.
The warmest thank you to...
