A Rustic, Vintage Wedding at a Private Home in Terrace, British Columbia

Emilie Metzmeier (23 and a student) and Jan Wandel (24 and a student) met in Germany five years before they tied the knot. After two years of doing long distance, Emilie went on an exchange to Germany and it was there that Jan proposed, taking her to a castle in Hohenaspberg. For their wedding, the couple headed to Emilie's hometown of Terrace, British Columbia. The backyard of a close friend seemed like the perfect location for the couple to exchange vows, the expansive property surrounded by lush trees and mountain views. A rustic aesthetic was chosen for the day, with details like haystack pews, logs, mason jars and burlap incorporated throughout. For the reception, the couple added a vintage twist to the decor, introducing antique props and lace to everything from the table tops to the decorative displays.
