Brock House Wedding | Julia + Justin | Whistler Steve

A Love Story: From Law School to an Outdoor Elegance Wedding in Vancouver

Choosing the right wedding date and venue is a significant decision for any couple, and for Julia and Justin, it was about bringing their love story full circle. August in Vancouver promised sunny skies, creating the perfect backdrop for an outdoor celebration at their Brock House Wedding. The couple, lawyers based in New York with a shared love for the outdoors, envisioned a day that exuded relaxed charm and understated elegance.

Julia, a Vancouver native, and Justin, raised by the water in Connecticut, met during law school and forged a connection that transcended the legal world. Their shared love for the outdoors made Brock House Restaurant, nestled along Point Grey Road with breathtaking waterfront views, the ideal choice for their special day. The venue echoed their desire for a relaxed, outdoorsy celebration with a touch of elegance.

The proposal story took an unconventional turn. Instead of a surprise proposal, Julia and Justin went ring shopping together, each selecting a symbol of their commitment. Once the rings arrived, they officially became engaged and surprised their parents during a visit in town. It was a unique and intimate moment that reflected their shared journey and mutual understanding.

When envisioning their Brock House wedding day, the couple expressed a desire for candid moments, capturing the genuine emotions that would unfold. Their style was clear: no overly posed or cheesy looks. The essence of their relationship was about authenticity, and they wanted their photographs to reflect that.

As avid travelers, Japan and Iceland held special places in their hearts. Julia appreciated the excitement of Japan and its delectable cuisine, while Iceland’s natural beauty left an indelible mark. These shared adventures spoke to their love for exploration and discovery, making their wedding day a new chapter in their journey.

Julia and Justin’s love story, from law school to the bustling streets of New York, found its way back to the picturesque landscapes of Vancouver. Their wedding at Brock House Restaurant would not just be a celebration; it would be a testament to their shared values, love for the outdoors, and the beginning of a new chapter surrounded by family and friends.
