Poets Cove Wedding on Pender Island // Eric + Elysse

2014 was an amazing summer full of unique weddings, new friends, and great memories: to end it off with this perfectly elegant, fun, and adventurous destination wedding was the cherry on top of an epic season. I know I’m going to get heckled from my guy friends about this, but Poet’s Cove Resort on Pender Island in BC could not be romanticized enough. This hidden gem of a getaway offered pristine shattered-seashell beaches, a stunning view of the surrounding islands, and a kickass sunset (ok maybe not the best word to describe it, but at some point I gotta be a guy) to cap off the day. Sun, surf, and a bash that lasted well into the morning hours- Eric and Elysse’s was the epitome of a west coast wedding.
