I am so thrilled to have been awarded “Best New Vendor” at last night’s aislewalk 2012 wedding magazine launch party! This was an unexpected, wonderful surprise that made my night! Being in a position to be considered for this award just wouldn’t be possible without the amazing industry team mates, friends + clients who have supported me from the get-go - I owe each of you a huge thank you!!
Erin Gilmore, the talented editor in chief of aislewalk wedding magazine and owner of Erin Gilmore Photography threw one heck of an industry bash at the Shangri-La Hotel to reveal the 2012 issue of aislewalk. The evening was complete with signature cocktails, delicious appies, speeches, awards and of course the party wouldn’t have been complete without Photobooth Vancouver + SideOne Band!
It’s always great to reconnect with industry professionals in a setting other than a clients’ wedding day or via email. On wedding days, us “vendors” are more often than not rushing past each other to complete set up of separate aspects with little time to say hello let alone get to know or thank each other. We know we mean it but it’s nice to actually have an opportunity to say it in person while off the clock and spend time chatting over a glass of wine. Thank you Erin for throwing a fabulous party where we were able to do this!
In addition to reconnecting + meeting new friends, I had a great time hanging out with my fav wedding gals, Vasia of Vasia Weddings, Charrisse of Charrisse Mae Makeup Artistry, Lele of Le Soirees + Elsa of Elsa Corsi.
For the other well-deserving award recipients, if I didn’t get the chance to tell you last night - congratulations to each and every one of you!

Thank you so much for the kind words Laura!! Can’t wait to work with you again soon! x

“At first when Jason and I started our wedding planning I thought to myself, this is so easy we can totally organize this ourselves. Well I learnt pretty quick that as the wedding got closer and closer the planning became more and more stressful!
I met Jessica through one of my best friends and as soon as we hired her as our wedding planner I felt a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. She was so incredibly nice to work with and she understood our vision and was so receptive to our ideas and all the changes we made.
As a bride you worry about every single detail of the wedding and with Jess I had the confidence that all these details were taken care of! I highly recommend Jess as a wedding planner!!! It’s the best thing you’ll ever do! :)”

What a wonderful wedding! The evening was sunny and warm, the venue was gorgeous and everything went off without a hiccup, thanks to you. It was a relief to be able to relax and enjoy the party knowing that you had everything under control.
From setting up the reception, assisting the bride, keeping everything and everyone moving along on time, to reminding the wedding commissioner (very discreetly) to have the guests stand at the brides arrival, you were quietly competent and and pleasant all evening.
Alexis and I certainly appreciated the advice you gave us regarding the points we hadn’t thought of in planning the day and I know how happy she was to transfer the schedule and information about rentals, caterer, bartenders, venue etc. over to your very capable hands.
Whenever I think of my daughter’s wedding it will be with a smile on my face and joy in my heart.
