Thankful to be surrounded by the most supportive team of fellow vendors. The fuel that keeps our engines going is the desire for our creativity to be stretched and the hunt for originality and personalization. It's what we do as artists.

The intimate shower hosted by the beautiful @jillian.harris for the exemplary mother, wife & entrepreneurial @fraichenutrition with usage of @avalonrents and decor by @vintage.origami.weddings.
I've just pulled in the driveway from a full week away in the Rockies with a dear friend of mine. We had the privilege to work on a snow capped wedding together at @emeraldlakelodge for a lovely couple. An intimate occasion with 6 attendees and a couple that made us feel like family. Truly an honour to see two families combine and to experience their deep connection, respect and bond for one another. An incredible opportunity to see my talented friend @abbyphotographyweddings in action as she hiked through knee high snow to capture the perfect photos. Elisha taught me to look to the sky the moment we would step out the door in the mornings. To observe at how the fresh white powder reflected the light on the sides on the snow capped mountains or how the figure of the trees at 'blue hour' created mysterious shadows in the forest. Every experience can be a lesson in life and this week I learnt about authentic hospitality and about chasing light in the mountains.
Too pretty for words and the kindest email the day after the wedding. It was the kind of email you wanted to print off and frame. Thank you to the most amazing team and the incredibly trusting and supportive couple J&B. Thank you @crocusfloraldesign @jenny.mcalpine.weddings @djbmack @sandhillwines @sarahspinchofpretty @avalonrents @kakesbykathie @vintage.origami.weddings #vintageorigamistyling

I had my first @vintage.origami.weddings wedding last week at the @kelownayachtclub. What an outstanding couple! I remembered the bride told me weeks before that they had the world's greatest friends and family. They proved themselves correct. Consistently the venue management, the wedding vendors and myself kept saying throughout the day, gosh...these people are soooo nice!!!! I felt that the way the couple treated us vendors made us bond as we texted each other and gathered to chat the next day about what an amazing group of guests they had and how kind, trusting and fun the couple were. It was crazy as I heard after the fact that the couple even invited members around the yacht club to their reception (complete strangers) to enjoy a drink. The couple surrounded with such good family and friends is not by chance. It's a product of who they are and the investment and value they've earned through their relationship. I felt really blessed to be in that circle during the months of our planning and I was brought to tears in happiness as the bride called me the day after the wedding to personally thank me and to say that the day had exceeded their expectations. That's worth more to me than any winning lottery ticket. Sigh...I miss them already #vintageorigamistyling
Ring for a kiss... very cool that @vintage.origami.weddings could custom build this vignette for the lovely @cocofilo at @filosophi with the pretty greenery by @anewleaffloraldesign for the creative and beautiful couple @mrskittyroyer at @bottegakelowna photographed by uber talented @shariandmike
A beyond inspiring day filled with love, sunshine, hugs and lots of laughter for the precious baby of @fraichenutrition. If you're ever feeling a little lost in the kitchen then you need to head over to Tori's website to be inspired by her healthy and creative recipes. Tori is the example of a super mom who has the most gentle and sincere heart for her family and friends. Thanks to @sanctuarygardens for allowing us to use her beautiful venue and to @snapmotive for the incredible photos of this baby shower hosted by the beautiful @jillian.harris with rentals from @avalonrents and decor by @vintage.origami.weddings
