While stating you want your wedding to feel ‘vintage yet modern’ may sound silly from the tip of your tongue, we actually know what you mean. Merging vintage inspiration with contemporary details is a delicate balance only savvy couples & wedding vendors can truly achieve…

Indeed, Canadian wedding pros Melissa Ortanez Events & Samin Photography bring fresh wedding inspiration from the late 1800s. Ever-so-elegant, this Hycroft Manor wedding inspiration from Vancouver, B.C. marries Victorian-era sophistication with modern black decor.

Each wedding design element evokes both bygone eras & modern taste. For instance, our bride’s Anny Lin wedding dress juxtaposes a vintage-inspired high neckline with barely-there sheer lace. A nostalgic look that’s anything but modest.

From romantic stationery to a gallery-worthy wedding cake, see all the ways this talented team of vendors has brought Victorian-era wedding design to the modern age.

From Samin Photography

For this spring editorial at Hycroft Manor, we wanted to blend all the modern details of a contemporary wedding with the timeless and classic style of the venue and a glamourous bride. We incorporated seasonal flowers and modern details and tablescape into our shoot to appreciate the beauty of spring and the heritage venue in its most natural form.

Our model bride wore a ‘Yolanda dress’ by Anny Lin featuring a very unique high neck and open back design with distinctive frills detail. A glamorous A-line gown with a dramatic lace cathedral train filled with dreamy lace and sparkles, combining modern and Victorian styles just perfect for this theme.

Stationer Jasmine created a modern and catchy design for our wedding invitation suite.

The 9-foot organic floral installation designed by Jane, was created for indoor bridal boudoir and later repurposed for the ceremony.

In keeping with the recent trend of smaller, more intimate weddings, we styled our tablescape to reflect a smaller guest count. We chose oatmeal tablecloths, black-rimmed glass charger plates, marble candlesticks and smoked candle votives to create a modern and contemporary feel. We loved how our vintage Thonet chairs gave a classic twist on a polished table set up.
