Modern Vancouver Island Beach Wedding Design — A New Age, Celestial Wedding

Modern, seaside Victoria, BC wedding design styling by Party Mood

The moon. It has enthralled night sky gazers for generations and influenced the ebb and flow of the tides since the beginning of time. We could think of no more beautifully fitting celestial centerpiece for our seaside Victoria beach wedding—so aptly celebrating the marriage of moon and water.

How We Created Our Modern Celestial Wedding.

Shimmering, iridescent color tones, the moon & cosmos, new-age geometrics—every design element artfully created by our favorite vendors or gathered from our exhaustive wedding rental inventory—all perfectly setting the stage for this heavenly seaside wedding.

Read on and view our gallery to discover how this modern Victoria wedding design came together.

Celebrating The Moon and Sea With A Modern Victoria Beach Wedding.

Perfect timing. A full moon was happy to add some real-life lunar authenticity to our modern celestial wedding. The monumental opal inspired full moon with its gold geometric pattern set a wonderful backdrop to the intimate ceremony site at the water’s edge.

A Celestial Color Palette.

A color palette predominated by shimmering, iridescent purple offset with blues and the modern sparkle of gold and copper tied the celestial to the seaside beautifully.

Long Guest Table at Water’s Edge.

The shape-shifting colour of the tablecloth presented a range of shimmering blues and purples. The prismatic cutlery took center stage beside carefully layered opaline plates. The place settings were tucked among floral adorned gold geometrics and mercury votive accents. Miniature geometric place card holders held watercolour place names.

The groom’s cream suit was selected to highlight a wider shoulder and relaxed trousers, reminiscent of the 80’s. Because of the informality of the beach setting, there was an intentional lack of tie with a focus on the box-shaped boutonniere.

Exaggerated pin curls created a fluid wave pattern ornamented with a raw prismatic quartz crown. Purple, teal and yellow eyeshadows with a matte lilac lip were chosen to create a punchy palette fitting to the avant-garde bride.

Favours. Mini globe favours were stuffed with novel full moon candy bonbons.

Long Table Runner. Translucent table runners with gold foil imprinted geometrics allowed the natural wood tables to still be seen underneath the metal and floral décor.

Globe. A pearlescent veiled globe with a bold cheeky graphic “You Mean the World To Us” spoke to the non-traditional target couple.

Tea Time. Inspirational opaline tea setting with iridescent spoons and candies further cemented the quirky take on classic tea service at a wedding.
