Intimate Bowen Island Wedding with rustic charm

You guys, it’s so hard to believe it’s already October!! We’re celebrating with a gorgeous Bowen Island wedding that we really love. Ally and Ian were married in British Columbia on a small island off the city of Vancouver called Bowen Island. It was an intimate celebration (33 guests, including the bride & groom) with touches of lace & lavender and plenty of elegant, rustic charm. We adore the long family-style table set up under string lights, and we’re kind of obsessed with Ally’s headpiece!

Ally’s shoes are so perfect for a wedding – a “something blue” plus they have hearts on the bottom! You could paint hearts on the soles of any shoes to add some charm as a quick and easy DIY!
