Whimsical DIY Wedding in a Winery | Grace+Joel


This whimsical DIY winery wedding had an abundance of yellow highlights, both from the creative hands of the bride and groom as well as from Mother Nature herself. A glorious celebration of love and sunshine filled with details captured The Nickersons, we think that it’s the epitome of what we love about British Columbia and summers!


Grace & Joel’s wedding day took place at the beautiful Starling Lane Winery in Victoria, BC. Grace has the prairies in her heart & the winery was the country vibe she was going for with the orchards, fields, & chickens. Guests sat on bales of straw and quilts (loaned from family & friends) during their outdoor ceremony. Grace had a flower girl army – she’s a troop leader for a group of Brownies & most of the troop came out to march down the aisle before her and scatter flowers on the grass. Very sweet.

Grace & Joel’s wedding was a labour of love. There were an incredible amount of DIY touches. Grace loves quirky, vintage & whimsical things and many of the details reflected that. She read her personal vows to Joel off of a long, thin rolled up strip of paper. Her wedding dress was re-made from a vintage dress with polka dotted fabric. The entire wedding party sported yellow, grey, & navy & gingham and wore TOMS; Grace hand-stitched HIS and HERS into her’s and Joel’s shoes. Their unity sand at the ceremony was from Alberta (for Grace) and BC (for Joel).

Friends & family contributed to most of the wedding. Decor & setup was all DIY, the cake was made by a family friend, hair and makeup was done by Grace’s friends, the dress was handmade by her aunt, music was done through and iPod, and a friend of the family played the bagpipes for the groom & groomsmen’s entrance. Grace designed & hand-drew all of the ceremony programs. They are incredibly unique.”

Lovely to see this posted online today. It’s a gray and misty rain day here on the coast so great to look back and recall the warmth and joy of Joel & Grace’s wedding on a hot summer’s day!
