What a way to kick off back to work, after 3 weeks of vacation!!! I am SO excited to have this Intimate West Coast Wedding, featured on Junebug Wedding's: What Junebug Loves, for 3 reasons.  Reason #1: I love this wedding SO much, Reason #2: They only feature the best of the best wedding photography (enter Jesse Holland Photography who killed this wedding!), and Reason #3: I seriously LOVED this wedding!  Seeing Brandy & Mitch's beaming faces on this beautiful blog is the cherry on top, and I am so thankful that they fell in love with it as much as I did!  Make sure to check out the feature here.

At the end of June, on the longest day of the year, Brandy & Mitch got married.  And what a wedding it was!  Set at the stunning Brentwood Bay Resort, and overlooking some of the most breathtaking views around, this stylish couple had a destination wedding that blew everyone away!!  With all their guests coming from Alberta, they wanted to make sure that their guests had an evening they wouldn't forget. So, keeping this in mind, we created an intimate and elegant soiree that had a strong focus on the celebration and the coming together of families.  By infusing a few pops of raspberry into the details, and incorporating ferns and other foliage that are found in abundance on the west coast, we were able to put a fresh spin on the classic wedding they desired.  High-end finishes were found throughout, and the details remained simple but extremely elegant.  And by creating an intimate dinner party atmosphere (as lets be honest...the food at the Resort is amazing!!), the guests were able to  mingle, share stories, and enjoy the experience of fine dining.  The energy of the event carried on late into the evening with a Photo Booth, dancing, and a s'mores bar!  Yum!

So many incredible vendors came together to help make this wedding as special as it was!  Big thanks to:

The Weekend Roundup

B&M-Wedding
B&M-Wedding

Wedding season is officially in full swing, and this past weekend was spent hanging out at the GORGEOUS Brentwood Bay Resort!! (Not too bad of a spot, if I do say so myself)  And getting to hang out with some awesome vendors, including the fabulous Jesse Holland Photography and FLEURtacious, made for an even better day!!  B&M wanted to host a gourmet, dinner party inspired, wedding, and lets just say, it's been a long time since I've seen a party like that one...Epic!!  They are a gorgeous couple inside and out, and I thoroughly enjoyed helping them plan this elegant black tie wedding!! Another awesome part of the weekend...my custom aprons, made lovingly by Oatmeal Lace, got to make their debut!!

And a HUGE thanks to Jesse, for sending these sneak peek's along.  To say that they're stunning, would be a MASSIVE understatement, and I can't wait to see more soon!!

It's that time of year again, and with snow on the ground (more like a dusting...but I'll take it!), it is feeling more and more like Christmas around here! I can't believe what an incredible year it has been for French Kiss Events (and my little family) and am so excited to be taking a look back at all the highlights that made 2013 so amazing, in early January (check out last years here)!  The new industry friends I made, styled shoots, beautiful weddings and ridiculously awesome clients, inspired everything that we created over the past year, and I cannot wait to see what is in store for us all in 2014!

So, for now, Happy Holidays to all of you, and I hope that you find time over the next week to share many laughs and hugs with your family and friends, and maybe even steal a kiss under some mistletoe ;)  Thank you as well, to my good friend Jesse Holland, for once again, rocking our annual Christmas card this year!  Nick's face is priceless...

Holiday Card Sessions

I love the Holiday Cards.  There...I said it.  Whether they are hand crafted out of love, or a cheesy Sears-portrait, I love the idea that once a year, we send "snail mail" to our loved ones, because we all know, that there is something extra special about receiving REAL MAIL!! (ie. NOT bills!)  Over the past couple of years, I have totally gotten into the spirit of things, and had my good friend, Jesse Holland, take our christmas card photo (here and here). This year, Jesse and I decided to team up and do something a bit different.  We have put together 3 festive backdrops (with the help of Rook & Rose for 1 of them), where you can bring along your loved ones (furry friends included) and have a fun mini-session with your backdrop of your choosing.  And if you want to get done up a bit (why not, right?!!), Conscious Hair by Elena & Melanie Baird Makeup Artistry will be on hand!  To reserve a time slot (Nov 24th, 30th & Dec 1st), just shoot me an email (barb@frenchkissevents.ca).

*and yes, that is Nick & I  in the above photo (he clearly doesn't want to be under the mistletoe lol!)
