“We wanted our wedding to feel vintage, romantic, and playful with lots of texture, neutral tones and greenery,” says Alannah of tying the knot with her husband Andrew at the beautiful brick chapel located in the historic Clayburn Village.
Being a candy fanatic and finding out that Clayburn village had a candy store was part of the reason Alannah wanted to get married at this venue. Says Alannah, “We were lucky enough to get a few shots in the candy shop even though they don’t allow it… I guess a bride asking nicely in a soaking wet dress helped a bit!”
The ceremony was followed by a reception at Clayburn Schoolhouse in Abbotsford BC. Alannah and Andrew chose to highlight their venue with vintage décor, photos of family, a candy cart, and chalkboard calligraphy by yours truly!
Alannah and Andrew chose for me to hand letter a quote by Fleetwood Mac on the large chalkboards at Clayburn because it was one of the first albums they got when they started dating.
Here’s what Alannah had to say about her venue!
“The moment Andrew and I walked into this charming schoolhouse built in 1907, we knew it was the place we wanted to celebrate becoming husband and wife. From the original squeaky floors and chalkboards that fill an entire wall, to the cozy fireplace tucked into an old brick nook, it just felt right. It’s also located directly across the street from the chapel which was perfect for the rainy day.”
