“It is difficult for me to use a ‘few words’ to describe what was probably the most incredible day of my life,” admits bride Meaghan Dolan. Meaghan, who married Greg Pilgrim last fall, her beautiful wedding day began by waking up to unusually warm sunny weather in Ucluelet. Those familiar with the west coast of Vancouver Island know how rare it is to enjoy a balmy 17 degrees in October and a blue sky that lasts all day long.

Along with the weather, everything else about Meaghan and Greg’s wedding at the Black Rock Oceanfront Resort went off without a hitch. “Although there were a few minor glitches in the evening (which I will spare you),” says Meaghan, “almost everything went completely smoothly. Not only did Greg and I get married, but we got to share it with all of the most important people in our lives.”

While the couple hired Fantastic Events to provide the décor, Meaghan and her mother planned the rest of the wedding themselves, and were delighted with everyone who contributed to their day, from the florist, to the hair and makeup artists, to the photographers and videographer, not to mention the Black Rock staff.

“Our wedding exceeded my highest expectations and turned into what I truly believe was a fairy tale.”
