In 2014, the Shangri-La Hotel Vancouver marked its fifth anniversary with a fabulous contest open exclusively to couples who had chosen the luxury hotel for their weddings.

As a proud partner in the contest, Real Weddings received a number of entries from couples showing off their beautiful Shangri-La weddings. The wedding of Sarah Edmondson and Anthony Ames is one gorgeous example.

The couple married on May 4, 2013 at the Shangri-La – and did it all their own way.

We are a fun-loving, silly couple, so we wanted our wedding to reflect that,” explains Sarah. “We strayed from tradition and chose a black and gold theme, using splashes of colour to add personality. We love a sleek, modern look that still has the warm, joyful love we feel for each other shining through.”
