Old Hollywood Wedding Mockup with Stage Right Etc

I was so happy to team up with Stage Right Etc to do one more wedding mock-up before our wedding season got into full swing! We decided to do an Old Hollywood Glam Theme for this one and Cush Restaurant and Lounge supplied us with a venue. Cush Restaurant and Lounge, is a great new restaurant/lounge in town that is also now offering itself as a wedding reception venue! It has such a cool, modern look to it and a great layout! They have all kinds of cool events/entertainment going on all the time there. Join their facebook page to keep up to date on what’s coming up next!

Stage Right Etc went all out once again and did such a phenomenal job decorating for the mock-up and fundraiser we did later that night (blog post to come). They did a classy red and black theme and made the place look so fantastic! Ria and Danielle at Stage Right Etc never fail to be my muses at events with their decor. It never fails to impress everyone who sees it and this was no exception. Gotta love that eye for detail and the perfect balance of bursts of colour and spots to rest the eye.

We had such an awesome “bride and groom,” for this mockup! Mark was so great at improvising and playing the adoring husband. He brought some great ideas to the table and was so fun! Christine is a friend of Danielle (from Stage Right Etc) and I and wow was she ever a stunning bride!! We did a fundraiser event later that night (we wanted to do something with the place looking so decked out and swanky!) in support of her fight with breast cancer she’s currently going through. I’ve never met someone who remained so positive while going through something so tough. Every Tuesday night, she comes to our girls night all smiles and laughs. She’s so strong and such an inspiration! Another awesome contributor from girls night was our good friend Amanda, who helped out so much wherever was needed! She works just down the street from Cush at the Streaming Cafe which is another sweet place to check out with live music that they also stream for free on their website!

A few more huge thanks go to:

Bliss Bridal for letting us pick a beautiful dress of our choosing to use (we went with a great one by Maggie Sottero).

Melissa Craven for lending her stellar makeup skills once again.

My old boss Amanda from the Paramount Theatre downtown for letting us take some photos in the theatre. Best job ever when you are a teenager- my free movie perks were like a second income with the amount I used them and I still dearly miss that. haha. I know I’m not the first person to take wedding photos in a movie theatre, but I had a lot of fun trying to put my own twist on it!

Doug from Quality Tires in Kelowna for letting us take photos with his awesome yellow car (oh yeesh- I feel silly for not knowing what kind of car it is. I just saw yellow gorgeousness and that’s all I know!.. and that’s it’s from 1952. haha)

Thanks guys!

Ok, how COOL is this car??? I want it!

The ole’  “arm stretch” trick.

I looooove this bouquet shot on the projector.

Never underestimate the beautiful of red roses.

I laugh every time I look at this one- love the expressions. I want to watch whatever they were watching- it apparently has it all! haha

And now for the decor eye candy by Stage Right Etc!

Stay tuned for the blog post that accompanies our Affair to Remember breast cancer fundraiser event. All the stationary was designed by Stage Right Etc!
