I wanted our invites to be unique so I made them myself. I've had the idea of what it was going to ...
Design my own invitation collection
I've been wanting to design my own invitation collection since my wedding 3 years ago. I've finally started the project.. so excited! Here's a sample design I've worked on... :)
Dresses for sale
I have a very nice dress by Cymbeline Paris for sale. It is a very elegant and special designer dress. I bought it for over $1000 and am selling for $200 (simply because it was a 3 years old style, which, you can't even tell because it's so stylish!) I'll post some pictures soon (the official picture is on one my posts below), contact me if you're interested. I'll ship to Canada and US.
Ask a Question
What do you do with your weddig dress after the wedding?
I have got 2 wedding dresses sitting in my closet for the last 2+ years. It's taking up too much space but I don't want to sell them. Does anyone know a good local (Vancouver, BC) or online wedding dress preservation company?
Appreciate your suggestions! Thanks
Pan Pacific Hotel Vancouver, BC
The banquet at Pan Pacific was amazing.
We were at the Oceanview Suite 5-8, a newly renovated room. I think we're the first couple to use the room. The Catering Manager who helped us was Kelly Single. She's very professional and help throughout the whole planning process. I sent her 1000s of emails and she always responses promptly. If I were to pick again, Pan Pacific would still my top pick! We didn't have to worry about ANYTHING about banquet, Kelly went over all little details with us well before the wedding day and she made everything happened smoothly on the day.
The food was GREAT!! Our menu was:
Appetizer: Ahi Tuna
Soup: French Onion soup
Warm slow roasted translucent BC salmon fennel beurrer blanc OR
Filet of beef tenderloin sour wine cherry infused red wine sauce
Dessert Buffet (the setup was beautiful!!!!)
My traditional wedding gown
My mom bought this traditional chinese wedding gown from China. The gold plate is a gift my grandma gave my mom on her wedding and my mom passed it to me, a very very very special item.
I love my flowers & decoration
I absolutely LOVE my wedding flowers.....It's done by one of the best florists in town, Doris Lee from Simply Sweet Floral Design (http://www.simplysweet.ca)
My beautiful bouquet has:
* Black bacara roses
* Black mini calla lilies
* Chocolate cosmo... (my favorite flower, it actually smells like chocolate...!!)
Tina Graham was my photographer. She took us to some of the very special locations in Greater Vancouver: Gastown, downtown, UBC and Burrard Bridge.
I actually had to walk on to the center of the burrard bridge with my gown on at 3pm on a firework day. I still couldn't believe she could take shots of Vicar and I on the bridge WITHOUT cars behind us.
These pictures I posted are taken by a friend of mine (Fion) who accompanied me on the day. She actually did a pretty nice job considering she only used a point-and-shot DC. I will post more photos by Tina in later post... coz I have to scan them... we insisted on using analogue film coz it seems more "real". Haha.... just personal preference, honestly, you can't really tell just by looking.
