Today, I’m super excited to begin rolling out our ORIGINAL, never-before-seen content as is featured in our BRAND SPANKIN’ new issue(s) about to hit stands across Canada! The following “Glitterati Style File” is an amazing collaboration between a group of professionals in Vancouver and the feature can be seen in our Vancouver + Western Canada Edition. The entire thing was co-produced by designer Sandy Godfree of Art of the Party and event planner extraordinaire Lori Fraser of Lori L. Fraser Signature Events and was photographed by Lori Miles of Sweet Pea Photography (who just photographed Michael Buble’s Vancouver wedding – yay Lori!) The incredible flowers seen throughout are the artistry of Rosalba Fasan-Buffat of Rose’s Flowers and Gifts. The shoot was captured at one of the most beautiful venues in Western Canada– Pan Pacific Vancouver.

I think this concept would be absolutely perfect for a Sunday brunch wedding or great for a bride looking for something fresh and informal but with luxury details. With bright pops of yellow, citrus green and electric pink combined with birch bark details, this is a fun and fresh take on “Garden Party Glam!”

One of my favourite things from this shoot was the creative use of COOKIES as escort cards!
Each cookie has a personalized sugar detail with seating details! Delicious, creative and UNIQUE! I love!
