Pause and reflect on what a beautiful world we live in..and then be thankful that @mrdanielhan sacrificed his California body to the frigid temperatures of Canada to get these photos for us so we can admire them from the comfort of our warm home. He’s FINALLY selling his prints!!! I have these first two on my own wish list! My husband and I are expanding our personal art collection and @mrdanielhan work is reflective of what we are proud of being Canadians. Plus...bonus for us since he’s one of our dearest friends. Proud of him, his work and the natural beauty of our country! It’s a win win win
Guest seating charts should always be a show stopper as it’s the first welcome for your guests at the reception. For them to see their names in print is really special as they made it on your VIP list to be one of the special individuals to share in your most memorable day. So thanks to to my awesome team for making this @vintage.origami.weddings display come to life. To @gingercreative for the lovely stationery, @petalandvow for the gorgeous florals and @adrianphotographers for the perfect photos for the wedding at @eldoradokelowna for the most picturesque couple #hoteleldorado #okanaganwedding #vintageorigamistyling
If you are thinking of a little getaway this summer you have to add to your bucket list a roadtrip down to the Naramata Bench to experience our Okanagan wineries. There you’ll find an amazing, quaint and European inspired winery @redroosterwine. We remember the first time we drove onto the property and were marvelled by the architecture and the views. My husband and I are now part of the wine club meaning that this brilliant wine arrives straight to our door each month. What a treat! DEAR SANTA...........
Everything about this bride was crisp, refreshing and classy so I wanted to layer my whites on white with just a lil more white... but this time with texture. So thrilled how the @vintage.origami.weddings dessert table turned out with the amazing sweets by @kakesbykathie, laser brilliance by my dear friend @blushtype, pretty florals by the sweet @petalandvow all captured perfectly by the talented @adrianphotographers with the ultra hip @djspinalshift spinning tunes for us at @eldoradokelowna. Thankful to the beauties at @bluejasminebeautygroup #hoteleldorado #kelownawedding #vintageorigamistyling
You know..I feel kinda bad for this generation of Millennials that missed out on the thrill of passing notes in highschool or making mixed cassette tapes for one another. Where asking a girl out was over the phone or in person rather than by text or social media. Maybe I’m wrong...maybe there’s perks now to modern day dating but I do think us 80’s and 90’s kids were fortunate we grew up with less technology. Let’s bring back the enjoyment of handwritten love letters passed during class on yellow lined paper and personal phone calls rather than texts. I love that Erik grew up in a household where his parents extended their coiled cable on their house phone (phones where attached to the wall once upon a time) so that it extended in an amazing length allowing them to pass it throughout the whole first floor of the home. Erik could pull the phone into a closet or behind a closed door for us to chat (young love). The good ol’ days...Thanks to the lovely @tarapeach for these fun anniversary photos with the amazing @jennymckinneymua and my fav retro @gypsysouldesigns overalls
I’ve been thinking a lot about my goals for the new year and I realized that often new year goals tend to be more about self development. No.. seriously...think about your past year goals..So I’ve vouched instead to design 3 challenges for my own self improvement and then 3 goals that extend and stretch me to assist and support the community or individuals around me. It’s not a real challenge unless it takes sacrifice and a bit of intimidation so here I gooooo...stepping into the new year with ambition and a lil bit of fear. I love designing sweet tables @vintage.origami.weddings with the amazing wreaths by @crocusfloraldesign at @summerhillwine #summerhillwinery #vintageorigamistyling
Erik and I have been studying about our unique personality traits through the enneagram model. It’s been fascinating to walk through and enlightening for us to affirm grace and understanding for one another and onto ourselves recognizing our unique traits and qualities. If you haven’t taken the 16 personalities quiz or enneagram app then I’d recommend you take some time to do so this winter. It lends itself for great conversation and I’m beginning to value the crazy and bizarre qualities that often annoyed me so so much about myself (ahhhhah..so that’s why I refuse to follow recipes or read instructional manuals). That’s a really beautiful photo @whitewillow_weddings of our @gingercreative stationery with @societyfloral gorg florals with @vintage.origami.weddings decor at @paintedrockwine with @dreambigokanagan, @joyroadcatering & @gorgeousgeorgias. Sending well wishes to this couple as they settle into their careers in #Victoria #paintedrockwinery #okanaganwedding #vintageorigamistyling
