My apologies for the 2 month hiatus from social media. Erik told me to be present in finding some quiet time to recoup and to care for my wrists in the off season. So I’m quickly jumping on here to say I’m so grateful to work with the incredible talent in the Okanagan like this beautiful bride @deniseelliottmakeup who orchestrated the most gorgeous wedding at @50thparallelwine with the amazing @smitten_events & @anewleaffloraldesign & @violetgreycreative that we at @vintage.origami.weddings were fortunate to decorate for. Captured by the outstanding @christiegrahamphotography. Thx for allowing me this winter break from social media. It’s making me a healthier human #50thparallel #50thparallelwinery #okanaganwedding
I would say that I’ve only ever discovered leftover desserts at a handful of our events at the end of the night. If it’s easily grab able desserts then they will disappear for sure! As long as the dj announces the desserts are available and free to grab. Consider the fact that there may be guests like me who will want to try more than one dessert and one of every variety. So opt for a couple extra and consider your gluten free guests as there’s always gf baking options available. What I’m saying.. is don’t forget to order some desserts as it’s truly the icing on the 🧁 cake. So thankful @vintage.origami.weddings could create this display for the @whiskcakecompany deserts with @crocusfloraldesign florals at @summerhillwedding for the lovely foodie couple @isabct & @aenigmaeffect photographed by the amazing @blushwedphotos & @jennymckinneymua at our #summerhillwinery #summerhillwine #okanaganwedding #vintageorigamistyling
Planner extraordinaire @jenny.mcalpine.weddings started off the conversation saying, “Yuriko, you’re going to love this couple from Australia!” She was correct. I was smitten for their wedding at @liquiditywines with the amazing @crocusfloraldesign. I got the cutest wax seals from @sealyourdealkelowna custom made for the stationery and @dj_krucial_k & photography by the outstanding @jessicazaisphotography with @jennajonesbeauty and adorable cakes @kaleenacakes. Grateful to Jacki & Bruce for having us part of their spectacular and intimate wedding by @jenny.mcalpine.weddings #liquiditywinery #okanaganwedding #winerywedding #vintageorigamistyling
What I will always cherish are the beautiful humans I’ve met in this industry. Erik and I would always drive away from @silversagestables enamoured by the hardwork and kindness that family displayed towards us and our couples. The salt of the earth kind of folks. So every photo at this venue has extra sentiment to Erik and I. We just loved this wedding and couple that @petalandvow and @vintage.origami.weddings were able to decorate for with @kaitlynellisevents and gorgeous film photography @jennahillphoto and rentals from @alloccasionspartyandevent #silversagestables #okanaganwedding #barnwedding #vintageorigamistyling
Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is relax. My favourite kind of hang out has to do with good food and lounging in my pjs with my best friends. Laughing about life and having no filter to tease one another. I’m so excited to spend time with my close friends through this winter season ..which transitions me into this photo of our cozy parlour setup by @vintage.origami.weddings hahaha. Beautiful florals by @crocusfloraldesign captured by @roycesihlisphoto & @limelightstudios.ca at @fitzwine #vintageorigamistyling #fitzpatrickwinery #okanaganwedding #fitzwine
During the ceremony a pair of butterflies 🦋 danced around the couple as they said their vows. I would say that’s very very good luck. Loving our @vintage.origami.weddings guest seating chart we created with the @crocusfloraldesign florals at @fitzwine captured by @roycesihlisphoto & @limelightstudios.ca #fitzpatrickwinery #okanaganwedding #vintageorigamistyling
The internet knows I’m a sucker for dog rescue videos...Okay that’s off topic from weddings.. but I wanted to say I’m heading back to the office today after our refreshing holiday we experienced. So thx for your patience with my delay in replies. Also...who doesn’t want to watch cute videos of dogs being reunited with their military service owners and dogs who get rehabilitated by foster families after no one wants them as the runt of the litter or they get left beside a dumpster in a cardboard box. Oh..there I go again getting distracted with dog videos. Thx @christiegrahamphotography for the photo at one oh my fav venues @50thparallelwine.
