Nathalie and Shaady are a fun-spirited bride and groom that hit all of the stops with their reception at the UBC Boathouse. The couple truly personalized their wedding by marrying both of their traditional cultures (Nathalie’s Filipino culture and Shaady’s Indian culture) into their wedding celebrations, as well as their personal style. In a venue Nathalie and Shaady wanted a “blank slate with gorgeous views, ideally something elegant, modern, and chic” – Nathalie. The couple chose the UBC Boathouse partly because Nathalie describes herself as a planner, “I wanted to be able to customize everything from vendors to decorations and be able to make everything exactly how I wanted it” – Nathalie. The couple loved that they could take our intimate hall space and create a space where their dreams could become a reality.

“From the moment we met Savoury Chef and had our tasting with them, there was no doubt in our minds they were the caterer for us; they didn’t even need to convince us. On the day of, their customer service was impeccable!” – Nathalie. Nathalie and Shaady are foodies and the food their guests were served during their reception was important to them. Savoury Chef customized their menu and let them choose anything they wanted to incorporate. “Savoury Chef even catered to specific dietary requests and specific taste palates” – Nathalie. Savoury Chef helped them with their signature drinks for their cocktail hour that both fit their personality and paired well with their menu. Also, the Head Chef was on site for their big day which was a welcomed surprise to both Nathalie and Shaady.
Nathalie and Shaady chose Fairy Godmother Weddings to execute their day-of wedding plans. “I knew from the start I wanted to do majority of the wedding planning myself as I enjoy it. I really only wanted someone to execute my plan on the day of” – Natalie. The couple was ecstatic that Kate was able to suggest several great details Nathalie hadn’t thought of. She double checked everything and was one step ahead of Nathalie throughout the day keeping everything organized.

I gave him the colours of my wedding and left that with him. He made an absolutely gorgeous arrangement for my bouquet and flower pieces dressing the headtable” – Nathalie.
