Thinking of having a photobooth at your upcoming wedding or event!? Just check out the fun we had at the Handmade Nation Vancouver premiere with the lovely Angela (pictured above) from Photobooth Vancouver!
The amazing thing about their photo booths is that, unlike others (no steps, curbs, etc.), they are easy to maneuver and can seat up to 4 people or more (depending on how much you squeeze)! You have a choice of black and white or colour and you can even add a logo / website (for events) or name / date (for weddings) at the bottom of each image. The best feature is that your guests receive a copy AND you also receive a copy of each image taken in the booth! Huzzah!

I have to admit that I was a bit late to discover uppercase magazine, but better late than never right? I have been following them ever since the launch of issue #2 and it must have been fate when I read a twitter post by Beyond Robson at approx. 1:00am announcing that Janine will be in Vancouver! Of course, I was so excited that I went and woke up Rob even though we had to be up at 6:00am the next morning to go to work. He was 25% excited and 75% confused.
After work on Saturday, we headed over to the Regional Assembly of Text to meet Janine. Lucky us, we even bumped into Jan from Poppytalk, Becka from Bliss in a teacup and Jeannette from The Beautiful Project! I didn't take any pictures once inside. I am always a little hesitant to do that. I guess I just don't want to seem like a stalker? :)
If you haven't picked up your issue, there are about 10 copies of issue #2 left which can be purchased on the website. You can check out more pictures on Janine's blog
Thanks for the lovely meet & greet and of course, the lemonade and cookies! Yum.

Simply put, Melissa and Chris rock! Seriously.
When their venue, Villa Amato, was only available for July 7th, they said "Fantastic, we are going to go with a 7-11 theme!". We had it all folks - slurpee machines, nacho cheese fountain, burrito station, gelato bar, mini hamburgers and hot dogs, fries in little cone cups and to top it al off, a candy bar with all of your favourite 5cent treats complete with mini plastic tongs!
One of my favourite components of the wedding was the handmade aspect. All of the bridesmaid dresses were handmade by Jane Bon Bon and one of the bridesmaids was actually the very crafty Rita aka Smeeta!
Cupcakes were freshly handmade by Lyndsay Sung from Coco Cake Cupcakes.
We had a top star wedding team including Kyra from Villa Amato, Flower Factory, Shannon at the Lazy Gourmet, Angela from Hubbard Photography and Tania from Chair Decor.

We first met them at the Kerrisdale Starbucks in 2007 and have been working on their special day ever since.
You couldn't have asked for a better day! Super relaxed couple + sunshine + amazing team of vendors! I love this couple. Half way through their reception, I turned to Rob and said "I miss them already!".

I must say though, that this wedding really put my cantonese speaking and listening skills to the test. I am born and raised in Vancouver and my mom moved here from Hong Kong when she was quite young which meant that we spoke a lot of English at home and I grew up with english speaking teachers, canadian tv / radio and everything else Vancouver. As I grew older, my Cantonese speaking skills have definitely detoriated. However, with the Groom and his Groomsmen, only speaking Cantonese as well as most of the guests, the reception venue and the Videographer and Photographer fluent in the language, I am happy to say that I kept up quite well! :D

It has been a little quiet on this side, but there are lots of things being posted over at the Got Craft blog. Feel free to hop on over there and see what we are up to!
In the meantime, check out this super fab article that Tiffany and Julie from Love Bobbie, Robert and I did for Momentum Magazine's July / August issue.
My favourite quote is on the first page ... "Andrea, who, with her black hair pulled back, looks younger than her 29 years". Nice! haha
Article also features Got Craft vendors including Maked and Fibre Manipulator.
