Whew, what a busy season this has been. Now that the weather has turned particularly ugly (I write this on a wet and blustery fall day), I can finally resurrect this blog and catch up on what has been a fantastic year. I will start by quickly sharing a lovely evening we had this past August at one of Victoria, BC’s hidden gems: The Villa Marco Polo. It’s located in the Rockland area, a stone’s throw away from Craigdarroch Castle. This stunning home has been converted to a one of kind Bed and Breakfast, each room breathtakingly unique. Each room has a designed based on a place visited by the explorer Marco Polo, such as Zanzibar and Istanbul. The inn was fully booked this particular evening, so I was unable to take pictures of the rooms; however, a few weeks prior to the event, I did get a tour. Trust me, it is worth your time to peek at their website to have a look at how spectacular this place is.
In August, vendors of Victoria Women of Weddings and 2015 brides met there for an evening of networking in the gardens and a chance to see this beautiful inn with an Italian Renaissance feel. You can learn more about the event here. Here’s a look at the view from then gardens. Can’t you just picture a wedding here?
