The Brunch Series : Chapter One

We are so excited to introduce the launch of a new project we have been working on!

The Brunch Series!

We have always worked so hard and producing amazing content for our blog and instagram in the form of Styled Shoots. These are done often in our industry as a was for vendors and suppliers to flex their creative muscles and work together to make magic happen! The problem though, is that we take the photos and everyone leaves. So we decided to change things up and start doing what we are good at - celebrating! We have started coordinating catering as a way to make sure that our industry gets that chance to have a great meal and authentic small group conversation.

This is something we hope to continue on a regular basis! Stay tuned for more amazing images and industry contributions!

We were so lucky to have a phenomenal first event. We partnered with the ShangriLa Vancouver and dine in their Alberni Room. The room is flooded with natural light, beautiful wood tables and neutral, modern chairs. The perfect backdrop! Celsia Floral captured the inspiration board perfectly and brought spring inside with bold and beautiful florals! Pedersens Rentals supplied the amazing gold accented cutlery, plates and my favourite glassware in the city! I seriously need these! Christine Pienaar captured the day beautifully and shared all fo these amazing images with us.

If you are a Vancouver vendor who would like to participate, either as a vendor or a guest, please send me note and I will get you our sign up list!

Check out the images below to see our delightful afternoon!

S&R - Whimsical Boho Chic Backyard Wedding

I could not love these two, or their love, any more. I’ve known and loved Saschie for years (like…15 years?!?) and have had the privilege of watching her grow into the most amazing woman of purpose, strength and intention. When she and Roman got engaged, and they asked me to come on board, I could not have been more flattered or excited! Saschie had talked about this family friends property being her wedding venue for the past 10 years and when she said that’s where it was actually going to happen I was over the moon. I knew this place held a special place in her heart.

They wanted to craft a day that would surprise and delight their guests. EVERYTHING they had at their wedding was for a purpose. They started the night with a loungy, interactive cocktail hour complete with a flambe station, taco bar, beautiful big bar, Collective You portrait booth, and little lounge sets across the lawn. The best part about this was that they were there to greet their guests upon arrival and join in the festivities. Then, we moved guests to the custom crafted (haha you should have seen my drawings and math equations!!) open air tent that her dad constructed. Guests ate an incredible family-style meal (thanks to White Table Catering!) as the sun set. The speeches were everything. Heartfelt, considerate, kind, memorable and emotional. Then, while S&R took a moment to gather themselves inside, their guests moved over to their fairy light ceremony nook. All of the images that Saschie and I had gone through during the planning had these images in them and I was SO happy that she had this magical ceiling to get married under.

And then the party. P.A.R.T.Y. These two are the owners of the Beyonce-Style dance workshops, RSVP33, and met at a dance class years ago. So needless to say their friends can DANCE. The dance floor was full. with incredible dancers!

Saschie and Roman - thank you for allow us to be a part of your wedding day. It was magical and everything I wanted for you.

We were so happy to see the beautiful wedding in print in the latest Weddingbells Magazine!

A Little BTS Video!

Our friend Mat, at the amazing Capture the Moment Media, made us a little Christmas present! I was so excited to see him rework some of the footage from S&R’s Bowen Island wedding (see full wedding here!) to get us a short Behind the Scenes video! Not only was it awesome to be brought back to that special day, but it was great to see the outcome of our hard work!
