When two people from different countries with a strong love for their dogs decide to get married, it is only appropriate that all these elements be placed into one big celebration. Tammy was from Canada while Steven was from Hawaii, and a destination wedding was chosen where they could bring both families and friends together in one place. They chose the beautiful property of Westlake Village Inn for their weekend celebration.

The couple chose a colorful palette of plum, lavender, grey and peach for the spring wedding. We combined the elements of the couple’s hometowns in the welcome bags to their guests, a welcome drink of Canadian Dry and Hawaiian shortbread cookies. Their invitation was custom designed by Small Paper Co. who used their dog’s silhouettes on the design on the invite, along with a custom map that showed the couple’s hometowns with dots connecting to their wedding location.

We had taken the dog’s silhouette from the invitation and had life-sized wood cut outs of the dogs made as signs throughout the wedding thanks to Letters To You! Such a great way to incorporate their fur babies with fun phrases from the couple’s countries.

For dessert, the couple had Snow Monster create custom ice cream macaron cookie sandwiches while dancing the night away until mini LA street dogs and poutine fries were served to guests as a late night snack.

Tammy and Steven, thank you so much for allowing us to help plan your big day! It was such a fun filled day with your fur babies, family and friends! We love your love for 90’s music that kept the guests on their toes all night! Congrats again and congrats on your baby girl!
