DILLON BRIDE // REBECCA & COLE

A west coast wedding set in Fernie, BC, Canada, on a romantic rainy day was, needless to say, simply the best.  

The intimate ceremony reflected the couple’s simplistic yet modern personal aesthetic and although Cole and Rebecca were forced to dramatically reduce the number of people at their wedding as a result of Covid, they were able to take the opportunity to spend more time with each and every guest. 

The two met over Bumble and as they say, the rest is history! If you’re a bride-to-be then here’s some advice especially from Rebecca, 

Don’t forget to take in every moment leading up to and during the day of your wedding. It is so easy to get consumed by the details and logistics and forget to be in the moment! The day goes by so fast and every moment is fleeting. I wish I could relive every detail in slow motion.”

HOW WE MET

In Vancouver BC, on Bumble!

HOW WE GOT ENGAGED

I love running and over the 4 years of our relationship, Cole has (reluctantly) taken it up as well. At the end of a particularly long and hot run one evening, Cole took me to one of our favourite parks and popped the question! He had champagne and ice cream (our favorite) ready and we spent the night there with a picnic while we celebrated our engagement.

MARRIAGE TO US MEANS

Being teammates. We take on every challenge, the highs and the lows together.

The bride’s mom went out to visit the couple in Vancouver a few months after they got engaged. Rebecca spent the day with her and a close friend who they went shopping with, in search of the perfect wedding dress. 

They headed to Rituals of Love which the bride had her eye on for their unique selection of dresses and said that the whole experience was perfect, “Everyone was so helpful and welcoming and we had so much fun! I loved that I got to have my mom with me when I found my dress. I love the intricate details of Bo and Luca dresses and the uniqueness of each one.”

MOST TREASURED MOMENT OF MY WEDDING DAY

Eating dinner together. We sat at our own table for dinner and loved having some time for just the two of us to spend time together and take in the day. We got to talk about our favourite moments so far and sneak in some time for just the two of us. Second to that was reading my vows and hearing Cole’s vows.

FLOWERS & BOUQUETS

Dried flowers – Meadow and Vine (Calgary, AB)

Fresh flowers – Green Petal (Fernie, BC)

WEDDING CAKE

Cookies and Cakes by Krista (Fernie, BC) – I have a number of allergies, but Krista was able to make the most delicious gluten-free and dairy-free cake I have ever had!

FOOD & DRINKS

Fernie Catering Company provided all of the food for our wedding. They did an amazing job. We started with charcuterie cones (in trying to keep things covid friendly), then had a 3-course sit-down dinner.

SPECIAL WEDDING SONG

Our first dance was to a cover of “Simply the Best” performed by Noah Reid (from Schitt’s Creek!). We love the tv show (good Canadian television) and when we heard the song it felt like a perfect fit for us.

During dinner and part of the reception, we played mostly jazz music. This is the type of music we always have on at home so we figured it would be fitting to have it at our wedding. We viewed our wedding as a large-scale dinner party with our closest friends and family.

CEREMONY & RECEPTION DÉCOR

Most of the décor was sourced by Cole and me. We wanted to relaxed and boho feel with a relatively neutral scheme.

HONEYMOON

We had initially intended to go to Spain and Portugal for our honeymoon. Travel is a huge part of our relationship and we love exploring new countries together. With the state of the pandemic though, we opted to hold off on an overseas trip for now and wait until a more appropriate time. Instead, we did a minimoon through the Canadian Rockies! We spent time in Fernie, Banff, and Kananaskis and enjoyed good food, great hikes, and some downtime.
