Today we bring the month of June to a close with this gorgeous wedding from my country of residence – Canada! Not only is the “Canada” effect making me a little too excited now but also the “purple” effect – everyone knows I love me some purple! Chris and Jamie’s Purple and Silver wedding was a simple and classy one with about 70 guests to witness their union.
About the Couple
Chris and Jamie met in September 2002 where they both attended the Acting Program at Victoria Motion Picture School. “Chris always said he didn’t want to get married and that he didn’t need to sign a piece of paper to declare his love for me but he knew it was important and how much it meant to me so on our 10 year anniversary in October 2012 he took me shopping for the perfect engagement ring!” – Jamie
About the Purple and Silver Wedding
The couple tied the knot last summer with the ceremony at the Celebration Pavillion at Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver and the reception overlooking the marina at the River Rock Hotel Resort and Casino in Richmond, BC. The wedding ceremony wasn’t until the afternoon so they decided to do a first look and take some wedding party pictures before hand.
The colors were silver and shades of purple with accents of diamonds and pearls throughout some of the décor and on Jamie’s dress. “The most important thing is we wanted our guests to have fun and have great food. We had a large selection of food and we had a candy table and a dessert buffet. Our guests danced the night away and took in the sunset on the patio.” – Jamie.

Wedding Planning Advice
“Our advice to other couples getting married is to remember to be in the moment and when the day comes not worry about the little things. The day is going to go by so fast so take it all in and enjoy all the hard work you did to make the day happen. Have fun!” – Jamie
