Sunshine Coast WeddingTrinh + Menashe: Sunshine Coast Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on May 8, 2017

Trinh and Menashe’s story is a true travel love story. Trinh traveled to Las Vegas from Vancouver and was at the same club as Menashe. The two were even at the same table but were not formally introduced that night. Fast forward seven months, Trinh took a spontaneous trip to Miami and was reconnected with Menashe through mutual friends. Sparks flew immediately and from that day on, the couple spent two years travelling to see one another.

The Proposal

The couple were on a trip in the breathtaking Maldives staying in an over water bungalow. Menashe arranged a romantic candlelit dinner alone on the beach. They were the only table under the moonlight and sparkling stars when Menashe proposed. Trinh reminisces,”it was an unforgettably romantic perfect night!”

The Big Day

Trinh and Menashe wanted to host an intimate outdoor reception and dinner somewhere with a beautiful view. So they were thrilled when they found a beautiful estate in Gibsons, B.C – on the Sunshine Coast overlooking the ocean. The venue was large enough for their 40 guests to stay for the entire weekend. It was extra special because Menashe’s family and closest friends flew all the way in from Israel – it was the first time their families were all meeting.

Favourite Moments

“When we lit the huge white lanterns at nightfall. It was so special to see all those lights floating up into the sky! It was so romantic! And I love that all our guests were involved too, they still tell us how much fun they had lighting them!”

Newlywed Advice

“Stay true to the vision you have for your special day. Don’t let guilt or pressure from others turn your wedding into what you think you have to do out of respect. You will regret not having your perfect day just to make others happy. Eventually people understand and just be happy for you – once they see how happy you are having your perfect day as you see it.”

Looking Forward to Most Now Being Married

“Everything!! Every single moment together. I somehow already wake up happier everyday, than I was the day before.”- Trinh

Handmade Outdoor WeddingKeeley + Braden: Handmade Outdoor Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on February 1, 2017

Keeley and Braden’s story is one of missed connections; they would often meet at parties, but the timing never seemed right. Braden asked her on a date in the spring of 2011, which Keeley nearly missed due to car and phone troubles, but after that first date they knew they were right for each other.

The Proposal

Shortly after the couple moved back to Camrose, they celebrated Keeley’s birthday together. Braden made the same meal he did when he first cooked for Keeley, then proposed on a walk through the valley.

The Big Day

Friends and family put in hours of hard work to fulfill Keeley’s vision for a handmade outdoor wedding on her family’s land. Keeley’s mom and sister made her wedding gown, veil, bridesmaids’ dresses and getting-ready robes. Everything from the eclectic décor to the cookie bar was handmade—the bride and groom even made the patties for their gourmet burger dinner. Despite the cool and wet weather, everyone enjoyed dancing and clinking glasses of local craft beer served on tap.

Favourite Moments

The newlyweds obviously loved the moment Keeley walked down the aisle, but her sister’s hilarious speech was a close second; it finished with a video of friends and family from all over singing Queen’s “Somebody to Love.”

Newlywed Advice

‘Go with the wedding you envision. Ours was challenging and a lot of work, but being able to see ourselves in all the details made it so worth it.’
