A beautiful sunny summer’s day provided the picture-perfect backdrop for Emily Vroom and Darryl Gauthier’s romantic Royal Vancouver Yacht Club wedding.

The day began with a small private ceremony on the front deck at the club followed by a champagne toast, their first as husband and wife. “This moment was incredibly special and relaxed,” recalls Emily.

The couple chose a nautical theme perfect for their chosen venue, combined with classic white and loads of DIY details for a simple and elegant yet fun mood.

Following family portraits and bridal party photos on the pier and on the beach, it was time for Emily and Darryl to welcome 65 of their closest friends and family to join them for cocktails and dinner before everyone danced the night away — together.
