Real Wedding: Julia and Jonathan


Words really can’t do this wedding justice, but thankfully Shari and Mike captured the story!

I first met with Julia and Jonathan 10 months before their wedding day and knew from that first meeting we were planning something special! Together we explored possible venues throughout Vancouver and decided on a combination of The Polygon and The Pipe Shop Venue in North Vancouver to accommodate their guest list (240) and vision for the day. With refined taste in food, wine and fashion, we knew guests were in for a treat! We kept the aesthetic light and modern, with sculptural feature florals from Celsia Floral, sleek glassware and chairs from Pedersen’s Rentals, and rust hued velvet settee’s and accent pieces from The Collection Rentals.

Julia and Jonathan began the day greeting their guests with welcome cocktails at The Polygon, followed by a ceremony with the city and sparkling ocean in the backdrop. Guests then followed Julia and Jonathan across the plaza to The Pipe Shop Venue where we were set for a feast! Savoury City Catering served a family style menu which included the best latkes our groom had ever tasted. Not the most traditional wedding menu, and we loved them for it! After heartfelt and hilarious speeches, it was time for the Hora! Side One kicked off the dancing and Julia our bride slipped into something a little more sparkly. When it was time for the party to end at The Pipe Shop, but no one wanted it to, we lured guests back to The Polygon for city views, Jukes fried chicken sandwiches and a DJ spinning into the early morning. 


Thank you to the incredible vendor team that made Julia and Jonathan’s wedding day possible!
