A DREAM COME TRUE WITH A VANDUSEN BOTANICAL GARDEN WEDDING
THE SAYING THAT “LOCATION IS EVERYTHING” is perhaps no more true than it is for wedding venues. No amount of creativity, decor, and picture-book ideas can compare to the beauty of a naturally-blooming garden on a sunny day. Working with La Vista Events, bride Elise knew exactly what she wanted for her July 2016 nuptials to her now-husband, Austin.
Hasti Maloufi, owner of La Vista, recalls the simple and straight-forward reason the couple chose to celebrate with a VanDusen Botanical Garden wedding: “[It] was the perfect backdrop to showcase Vancouver’s West-Coast style with features of large plant collections and lush greenery.”
Following the charming ceremony, guests were encouraged to explore the gardens while sipping cocktails and nibbling canapés prepared by the culinary team at Truffles Fine Foods. VanDusen’s Visitor Centre was transformed into a gilded wonderland of florals, twinkling lights, and garlands of greenery where the newly-married couple celebrated with a reception including all of their friends and family.
