Real Wedding: Candace + Wayne

Candace and Wayne’s June wedding was fun yet elegant and full of personal touches.  Coming from Calgary to celebrate their wedding day, Candace incorporated a little bit of country flare by throwing on her cowboy boots & hat for the reception and Wayne, a cowboy hat with his chucks.

Check out a few of the photos from their day.  We particularly love the stunning shots of the Candace’s beautiful dress during tea ceremony in the Gibson Suite at the Club.

The Food & Drink: Following their nearby church ceremony, guests arrived at the Club and were welcomed with classic Kir Royale cocktails and chilled craft beers.  Passed hors d’oeuvres were plentiful and included, house-baked cheddar scone “BLT”s, boursin cheese stuffed tomatoes and lamb lollipops. Terminal City Club’s own blend of B.C. red and white wines were poured for guests during the deluxe buffet dinner service. And, finally, as a late night pick-me-up, guests indulged in drive-in inspired snacks in between dances.

The Entertainment:  The talented team at The Collective You captured stunning shots of guests as they arrived at the Club while pianist Michael Creber performed throughout cocktail hour.  DJ John Hondronikolis, a friend of the couple’s, provided the party music throughout dinner and into the evening.

The Decor: Leo and his creative team at Wish Events helped bring the couple’s vision to life using clean, classic white and various shades of purple.  White chiavari chairs were accented with purple sashes and tables were dressed with white silk linens, purple pin-tuck runners and finished with soft, billowy arrangements of hydrangeas.

A genuinely lovely couple and a joy to work with, we simply couldn’t be happier for Melissa and George!

Hush Wedding Showcase 2013

On Saturday, March 2nd, with the help of some of Vancouver’s most reputable wedding vendors, Terminal City Club came alive with decadent decor, bubbles and bites, live entertainment, a very popular men’s lounge and gorgeous roaming models. Inspired by the Club’s commitment to honouring tradition and embracing tomorrow, the evening’s theme was built around vintage glamour, using rich fabrics and hues of ivory, pearl, gold, rose and pops of the always classic, yet so very 2013, shade of emerald. Hush provided couples, and their entourages, with a one of a kind wedding show experience where they were able to mix and mingle in a luxurious, yet ultimately inviting and engaging, cocktail style setting.  We were thrilled to see how dressed up guests were for the event and even happier to see how much fun they were having throughout the evening.

Here are just a few of the fabulous photos courtesy of Union Photographers:
