CUTE!!

Oh, love. It is a truly beautiful thing. I got to be a part of the super amazing and super special wedding of beautiful, vivacious Jamie and silver fox handsome Ryan this weekend, a sailor themed wedding held at Granville Island Hotel's Dockside Lounge. Jamie is the extremely talented vision behind Fort Design Co., a web and graphic design company. With Jamie and her incredible and gorgeous sisters (there's four of them all together!) behind the helm (sailing reference! High five Rich!), we just knew this wedding would be nothing short of spectacular!

The sisters put sooo many details into this wedding, and so many family members and friends pitched in to make the wedding tons of fun, and full of love. Jamie herself made all of the fabric mini flags and mini banner for the cupcake stand. There was also, among so many things, an origami making station, homemade marmalade to take home as favours, pecan chocolate tarts and mini apple pies, cutely designed magnets featuring Jamie's kitty, mini folded sailboats everywhere with little fortunes inside, homemade tissue paper pompoms... the wedding was a tear-inducing affair, and let's just say my friends and I are still recovering from the party, heh heh...

For the cupcakes, I ended up making a mix of 150 mini and regular sized cupcakes: a vanilla buttercream topped chocolate cupcake, Coconut Dream-- a toasted coconut-topped coconut cupcake with creamcheese frosting, and a vegan chocolate ganache cupcake. The wedding theme colours were blue, orange and red, so I did a matchy-matchy thing with the cupcake liners. And also... Jamie made the CUTEST little height-specific version of her and Ryan (Ryan is very tall) for the cupcake stand out of plasticine... note Ryan's "silver fox" hair... ! Ahhhhdorable!!!

Fifth photo down and last photo of the crazy cool couple taken by the amazing Amy Pelletier, the official wedding photographer of the day! The rest were snapped by yours truly.

Seriously, Jamie and Ryan. You guys rule. Happy happy matrimony to you, and thank you for having me be a part of your party times!
