Something Old, Something New – Wedding Vendor Event

This decor was too good not to share. Last week I was one of several sponsors for a fantastic wedding vendor event called Something Old, Something Newthat was put on by Stage Right Etc.  The event coincided with the Kelowna Heritage Museum‘s latest exhibit Something Borrowed, Something Blue which is featuring several vintage wedding dresses from the Okanagan.

The beautiful  Laurel Packinghouse graciously hosted the event, which Stage Right Etc designed to look like a mock wedding reception with a lounge-style layout. My jaw dropped when I walked in the room. Wow – Stage Right went all out on this one! I mean there was even a tree dripping with candle-lit crystals in the middle of the room! Amazing! The lighting by SW Audio+Visual really added to the ambiance and overall look of the room! The combination of the warm wood and brick of the Laurel combined with all the blue up-lighting looked incredible!

The room quickly filled with photographers, planners, DJs and other wedding vendors from around the Okanagan. Details Catering served appetizers that made you want to do a jig when they hit your taste buds. They had this chocolate dessert that was toooo die for, oh my goodness. The staff at Laurel Packinghouse were awesome and accommodating as ever and DJ’s John Byrne and Superdave shared the stage and had myself and many others dancing all night. Danielle of Stage Right Etc and my second shooter Carley are the best dance buddies ever FYI – if you ever need dance floor fillers- we are your girls! ;D

Okanagan Flipbooks was also there and man oh man was that a fun addition. I was holding a stack at the end of the night and the Flipbook team came up to me and jokingly said, “Jessica, you really should have tried out the Flipbook Booth!” Hahaha. I may have liked it a little TOO much. I wasn’t alone though Cough*Danielle*Cough! ; )

Thanks again to everyone that came out to party and to all the sponsors for your hard work to make this one awesome kick-off to our wedding season! I already can’t wait for the next one!

 

Everyone had such a blast making flipbooks! You can make custom covers for our event, like below. Click here to see a video of the flipbooks people made at the event! I was wearing a green dress in front of a green screen for anyone wondering where my body went! haha.

Best Friends Shoot – Maiya, Amanda & Basso

Maiya and Amanda cooked up such a cute surprise for their best friend Basso’s birthday. They took her to a spot agreed on beforehand and when I arrived they sprung a surprise photo shoot on her! How great is that!? What a cool birthday gift. I think I giggled non-stop the whole session and just wanted to jump into the frame and goof around with them they were so fun.

Put your paws up! A little Lady Gaga love.Birthday girl smooch!

Carlee & Brennan – Engagement

I had such a fun engagement session with Carlee and Brennan! I loved how spontaneous they were. We had fun making things up as we went along, bopping to and fro downtown, chatting and getting to know each other while we walked. Carlee and Brennan go together like peanut butter and jam. They’re both friendly, down to earth and easy going. I’m looking forward to photographing their wedding in September!
