I had two weddings in a row at the Fairmont Empress this summer, and this one was the first. These two got married out at Hatley Castle and then headed to the library at the Empress for their lunch reception. It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon and Erica, from Rook and Rose, did a fantastic job getting the room ready for them. She also did an amazing job with the bouquets, as one guest pointed out, Bridget’s bouquet weighed as much as a baby! These two are readers and instead of having a guest book, they brought along some of their favorite vintage books and told their guests to sign the inside covers. Genius!
