A DIY Barn Wedding at a Private Residence in Pemberton, British Columbia

Alexandria Brinkhurst (27 and a student) and Jacob Bauer (26 and a forestry firefighter) wanted a nontraditional outdoor wedding. Their photographer, Anastasia Photography, suggested a property in Pemberton, British Columbia. The couple exchanged vows outdoors, with the gorgeous mountains as a backdrop, then held their reception in a large open barn on the grounds. Because the barn floor was dirt, the couple suggested casual dress to their guests. This casual vibe inspired the tone of the entire wedding: fun cocktail-hour games like axe throwing and crochet, DIY decor, origami cranes and small bright flowers from the local organic farm, Bathtub Gardens, displayed in cut San Pellegrino bottles. The couple ended the night with a paper-lantern release into the mountains. Check out more photos below.
