Dan and I would just like to thank all our wonderful brides and grooms, their awesome families and friends, and the many talented wedding vendors we have worked with over the years. There are so many people hard at work at these weddings. From the makeup artist to the bartender, the chauffeur to the chefs, people behind the scenes, and people running the scenes. At the end of the day, we’re all a team working towards one goal.
This was the first year for the BC Wedding Awards in Vancouver, the gala held on December 1st at District 319. A night of mingling, eating wonderfully delicious appetizers, taking goofy pictures at the photo booth, and sipping on the amazing ‘Love Potion’ drink (which the proceeds went to the non-profit Intersections Media Opportunities for Youth Society). We encourage everyone to check out their site! What a great cause!
That night, Dan and I had our good friends Naz and Scott over for dinner before heading out to the gala. We got all dressed up, and arrived fashionably late. We all claimed seats for awards ceremony because Naz and I sure didn’t want to stand in our heels all night! (Fancy sparkly heels that I bought 2 hours before the show!)
What a great opportunity to celebrate the diversified talent in our wedding industry. And boy was Fred Lee from CBC Radio One a great host! He got everyone laughing! It was great to see other skilled artist who are good at what they do win awards that they deserve.
In all honesty, Dan and I were a little nervous and hopeful of winning something in the photography section (yah…we got a bit giddy….!) But I was quick to let go of those hopes because there are so many talented photographers in BC, and what were the chances of wining anything!? I didn’t get my hopes up in order to not be disappointed. When the category of “Best Candid/Photojournalism Photo” came up, I whispered to Dan, “Ahh! I don’t even remember what we submitted for this category!” and then…..Stone Photo was called! And again for “Best Detail Photo”. Wow.
It’s a great feeling to be recognized for our work, and we thank everyone involved with the BC Wedding Awards.
Congrats to our bride and groom Stephanie and Mike who were married on June 5th, 2010! Amazing shoes! Thank you to our bride and groom Jose and Veronika for sharing such an emotional ceremony with us on April 24th, 2010!
Congratulations to all the winners and runners up!
We’re looking forward to seeing all the amazing work for next year’s gala!
