We can’t believe it has been a week already since the Professional BC Wedding Awards Gala at the River Rock Show Theatre. We like to call the gala the wedding industry’s Christmas party, since everyone gets all dolled up (and sometimes it is hard to recognize each other!) and heads out for a fabulous night celebrating another incredible year doing what we love. The wedding industry is filled with people who are so passionate and talented and are a joy to be around. Honestly, we all get a little giddy when we get to actually enjoy a fancy party rather than working at it. We had so much at the gala this year (as we usually do!) and we loved cheering on all the winners and the finalists. We feel so lucky that we have so many hilarious and lovely friends in this industry. Of course, we took too few pictures at the event and the few that we have aren’t the best quality because we took them with our phones or with our little ol’ point and shoot. Here are just a few from another amazing Gala evening that we won’t soon forget.
Congratulations to all of the winners and finalists at this year’s awards! A huge thank you to the BC Wedding Awards for such a fabulous night!
My sneaky pic of the talented & lovely Nadia Albano working on prettying me up for the awards.
Riding the skytrain to the awards. Not nearly as fancy as taking a limo like we did last year.Roger doing his GQ look with the wonderful Justin, a dear friend and the amazing producer of the awards.Of all the pics, this is our absolute favourite from the night. We were all in the photo booth with Erica from White Dahlia Weddings when she won the award for Best Wedding Event Planning. We all screamed and ran out of the booth. Me being me, I didn’t want to waste the photos so jumped back in the booth. This photo makes us laugh every time we look at it!Honestly, most of the night was like this.The most hilarious thing we learned that night was that Devon and I have the same strong perscription on our glasses and can actually wear each other’s glasses and see!This pic makes us laugh too – riding home on the skytrain with Shari+Mike & Bethany. Not sure what serious conversation Shari & Bethany are having while I’m being such a goof!
