Catriona and Wesley love New York. After all, Wesley lived and worked in the Big Apple for six years, and it was the city where the pair fell in love — as well as where Wesley proposed to Catriona. “It’s the city where dreams came true and everything fell into place perfectly for us,” says Catriona.

When it came to planning their celebration at Vancouver’s iconic Terminal City Club, the couple naturally settled on a New York City-themed wedding day.

Among the key elements that brought the theme to life: a modern colour scheme of white with hints of blush pink and silver; New York-themed invitations; NewYork-themed music; New York locations used as table names, guest name cards and in the décor; an “I love New York” wedding cake and cupcake favours; and even a photobooth featuring a Times Square backdrop.

“Having a themed wedding was our way of bringing New York to Vancouver, and having all of our closest family and friends share the magic that we experienced,” says Catriona.
