Colleen and Lance were married at Affinity Guesthouse this weekend. Their wedding weekend was an incredible combination of casual and classy. We are so happy to have been a part of such a great celebration. Colleen and Lance are the potters in Cowichan Bay; they operate the Mud Room Pottery studio.
To Dwight and Vanessa: Thank you so much for helping to make Colleen and Lance's wedding day such a wonderful occasion! It couldn't have been more perfect! This place is so beautiful and a wonderful setting for a wedding. 130 people!!!, a weekend celebration. Hope to see you again! John and Affie Duifhuis.
And a year later, they were back for their anniversary...
I just don't know where to begin to put into words how much we enjoyed our time at Affinity. Our wedding last year in May was absolutely perfect, Dwight & Vanessa, you went out of your way to accomodate us as your first big wedding event and help make our day a dream come true. We were lucky enough to return again this year for 2 nights to celebrate our 1st anniversary and once again, you both have gone above and beyond. The paddle was a highlight for sure - thank you so much for arranging that, the breakfasts were oh-so-delicious, the room - ahhh...the room, our morning spent on the estuary and beach was so rejuvenating, exactly what we needed. Thank you, thank you. I'm looking forward to coming back again to go for a hike with Vanessa sometime so she can narrate for us all that we see, and hopefully next time we can hang out for a campfire and sauna which we didn't have time for on this trip either. Looking forward to building many more great memories at your hidden paradise!
Lisa and Aaron choose the best weekend of the year so far for their outdoor wedding.
Vancouver Island Outdoor Weddings... Spectacular!
