  • THE FIREWORKS WEDDING

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: Uncategorized

    Gina and Andrew lucked out when their wedding date ended up falling on the same day as the Celebration of Lights.  Fireworks going off in the background during your first dance?  Yes please!

    We first met Gina during a consultation.  She had planned her whole wedding and wanted to go over all the details to make sure she had all her i’s dotted and t’s crossed.  After going over all the wedding plans, and hearing how hiring Umbrella Events to coordinate the day could take all her stresses away, she made an executive decision to bring us on board.

    The wedding was held at the Museum of Vancouver.  The couple opted for a cocktail reception instead of a formal sit down dinner.  Fiesta Creative Catering provided delicious appy’s and a salsa bar!  The night was a party with lots of drinking (open bar style!), and dancing.

  • THE FIRST DANCE

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: Uncategorized

    One of my all time favourite wedding photos is “The Dip”, seen below and taken by the amazing Kiss My Flash Photography.  For this couple, photos were the number 1 priority for every moment throughout the day, especially the first dance. They took several dance lessons and mastered a routine loaded with dips, spins and twirls.  As you can see in the background, the audience was impressed.

    Dancing is not everyone’s strength.  Most of us grew up to video dance parties in high school, where they averaged 5-6 slow songs throughout the night… Which basically consisted of hands on hips and swaying back and forth.  These moves are not so entertaining for what is probably the most important dance of your life.  Opting to learn a few moves before the big day can really pay off.  It will boost your confidence if dancing makes you nervous.  You will impress you friends with your crazy moves. Most importantly though, your photos will be amazing!
