One venue showcases two beautiful style choices thanks to passionate local planners


Local wedding experts at La Vista Events collaborated to demonstrate just how the proper event space can be transformed into the perfect venue, reflecting different styles and budgets. This passionate team of professionals converted The Element Hotel Burnaby Metrotown into two distinct looks: a decadent timeless affair and a whimsical garden escape, demonstrating the hotel's multifaceted capacity.


The first event look was inspired by a classic pallet of soft cream, decadent gold and a hint of pale blush. A grand span of sheer drape and a stunning, high gloss, white monogrammed floor wrap set the elegant tone of the room. Accented by a sophisticated ceremony scape combining Gold Infinity and Washington chairs with clear acrylic pillars holding decoratively handcrafted florals. The complementary reception space beamed elegance, with an elaborately decorated head table, lavishly filled with florals, crystals candelabras and gold-rimmed charger plates.

The space's second look was inspired by the hotel itself, with its focus on sustainability and an eco-friendly “green” environment. The pallet was perfectly complementary to the hotel's natural look, with soft greens, neutrals and creams. A whimsical woodsy gardenscape, offered a rustic, wooden, family-style, head table paired with wooden crossback chairs and enveloped by a custom curtain of greens and candles.

As demonstrated by both of these romantic shoots, the right team of vendors can make your dreams a reality, no matter what your style, budget or theme.
