Audrey Hepburn inspired table by Upright Decor

I attended Crème de la Crème‘s wedding showcase last Sunday and it was marvelous! Whether or not you were a traditional bride-to-be, there was something there for you. From cupcakes and cakes to jewelery and gowns to wedding photographers and party planners, Crème de la Crème didn’t miss a single detail.
I immensely enjoyed Upright Decor’s gorgeous table settings, inspired by Old Hollywood stars. In fact, I think they were my favourite part of Crème de la Crème. James Dean wins my heart.

As a trained designer, I opted to design my own invitations, but otherwise I would have trusted Zing, a fabulous little stationary store in Coal Harbour, with all my wedding correspondence.

Food is extremely important at any wedding! Crème de la Crème featured many amazing caterers and even more amazing patisseries. It is going to be hard to pick one.

The entire place overflowed with incredible flower arrangements. I especially loved this fall-themed arrangement by Granville Island Florists (especially because orange is my colour).

The best of Vancouver’s beauty experts demonstrated their magic at the showcase, including Noir Lash Lounge, Pure Nail Bar and Blo Dry Bar.
