Kim + Trevor
If the bride wants an intimate garden party
inside a convention centre designed to fit 1,000 people
then the bride gets an intimate garden party
who cares if you need to bring the outside indoors
at 6 am
and rig + lift
+ hell yes, make what may actually be literal magic?
You've got Margaux + Team Filosophi, + it's their job to make the impossible possible.
Introducing what happens when a social butterfly who wants to get married in front of everyone (T) marries a quiet person who'd rather elope (K)
the middle ground is 350 guests // a convention centre // intimate vibes
Yes, you read that correctly, that's the middle ground. And it had to be allllllll of those (fairly contradictory) things.
When these two dreamboats came + met Margaux for the first time they came because they'd already booked the convention centre for their middle ground wedding, [they had to, there's really not that many places in Vancouver that can hold that many people - possibly they had to book 2 ballrooms side by side.]
... and they realized they could use some help in turning this massive space, that felt a little, ummm, "convention-ey" into what Kim had always dreamed of - a cozy, intimate garden wedding.
let's not pretend this wasn't a challenge.
but shit got done.
bah! Like can you even believe this nonsense? Like, who brings a tent inside?
and makes it look like the sky is full of wishing lanterns floating over a garden?
Oh and the answer to that wild question? Filosophi. That's who.
After that first consult, Margaux + Erin talked about it for a while + then decided to pitch the plan. Erin had wanted to put a tent inside for practically forever, just no one on the team had found the clients to take on this how-could-it-even-possibly-yeah-right-idea yet.
Kim + Trevor, mad props for being the right clients to make this how-could-it-even-possibly-yeah-right-idea into a reality.
But let's remember, the tent + the "starry sky" + the outdoor ceremony + the light, bright, gardeny florals + rustic chairs were all for our eloping-prefering-shy-bride, but there was a very incredible second part of this equation.
The Social Butterfly.
So obviously a killer party was required as well. So hell yes, started the night out with a little light beer pong match before dinner + the first dance.
And obviously a giant ass dance floor was required + the rest of that big space was broken up with pagodas for taking a break from that wild party + relaxing under the stars - oh wait - under the convention centre ceiling -
