Robyn + Jamie: A Boho Hippie Wedding by Rebecca Amber Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

This carefree British Columbia wedding is exactly what we want to see now that it’s hitting 80 degrees in DC! Set at the all-kinds-of gorgeous Sea Breeze Lodge at Hornby Island, Robyn and Jamie’s waterside celebration is the perfect example of how energized and unforgettable a DIY wedding can truly be (the couple called on family and friends to help with everything from making the bouquet to officiating the ceremony).

“We just wanted a fun, fresh vibe and lots of bright colors,” says bride Robyn. Mission accomplished, we think! Thanks to Rebecca Amber Photography for sharing the day with us—we guarantee you’ll be gunning for a trip to shore halfway through the story.

Robyn and Jamie met while working at Citta’s Bistro in the heart of Whistler village. A steady friendship lead to sly flirting, and a solid foundation of common interests brought them to where they are today. “A love for skiing, outdoor activities, traveling, and adventures has kept our relationship happy, healthy, and strong,” says the bride, who found her breezy tiered dress at a consignment store in Lantzville, Vancouver.  Her bridesmaids did her hair and makeup, and Jamie’s mother and aunt spent the entire morning of the wedding crafting the bouquets.

Robyn and Jamie served pesto spaghetti, a variety of salads, and a full BBQ spread at their patio reception. Each place setting was adorned with the perfect finish to a DIY wedding: jams and preserves made by the bride and groom themselves. They also handed out coozies that read ‘to have and to hold and keep your drink cold’ as favors—how cute is that?

The day ended with a late night campfire singalong and plenty of love and laughter among friends. Thanks again to Rebecca Amber Photography for sending the photos over—every wedding should be as vibrant as this!
