Opulence Events: Roaring 20’s Party

Ellen said goodbye to her “roaring 20’s” with this beautiful 30th birthday bash! The tables sparkled with pearls, gold sequins and tons of bubbly. Ellen’s guests spent the night kicking up their heals to the best Gatsby themed soundtrack and in between cocktail breaks snacked on the most delicious little desserts from Cake Bake Shoppe ( I may have snuck some cake pops home in my camera bag!) Special thanks to Orange Trunk vintage rentals for helping make the decor at this event truly unforgettable. Ellen I’m so blown away by your attention to every charming detail…I know all future Opulence Events will be just as incredible. Happy 30th Birthday!

Wedding at L’Abbattoir : Allison and Phillip

Allison has the type of smile the lights up a room, it is infectious. Any one who knows her can see she is a source of bubbly energy, positivity and always laughs if any one else in the room is…and no one brings out more of those smiles than Phil. Phil is rarely serious and always trying to make Alli laugh. It’s no wonder that a chance encounter in Seattle turned into a lasting love.

Spending the day with these two people and the their intimate collection of closest friends and family was absolutely wonderful. We spent a few hours before the ceremony documenting their first look and the explored the historic Gas town neighbourhood in Vancouver. We found the nea Allison and Phillip were married in a beautiful private loft above Gas town’s L’Abbattoir. The staff at L’Abbattoir did an incredible job of helping to create a beautiful space for this couple to say I do and the service and food that followed was unlike anything I have seen. Alli and Phil, it was such a privilege to be part of your day and capture so many special moments. To be surrounded by your amazing friends and family was a perfect way to celebrate such a perfect day! Here are a few of the details from this charming event.

Alli + Phil: 1st look

In a hidden courtyard in down town Vancouver, Phil and Alli started their incredible wedding day with a “first look.” The tradition of a first look allows us to preserve that perfect moment when the groom first see’s his bride  and the excitement they both share for their wedding day. It’s gret for couples who’s day are playing out a little bit differently and seeing each other before their ceremony. As beautiful as we all think the bride looks no one is ever more smitten than the man marrying her…and in this case Alli was equally as taken with her groom.

I feel so incredibly blessed to have captured these first moments of them together and can’t wait to post more from this intimate wedding. 1st look-5
