I can’t have a party without a sweet table and candy bar.  These customized cookies and treats made by our friends at Cake and Giraffe and The Uncommon Cake were adorable!  And the candy from Karamaller Candy Shop in Yaletown was a hit!

We can always depend on our friends at The Flower Factory for creating the most spectacular florals.  They really played on the Italian Garden theme and incorporated all of my favorite flowers into each arrangement.  I especially loved my floral arch around the front door to greet our guests.  I wish this was a permanent fixture!

BIG love to my friend, and graphic designer, Lele Chan. She helped me organize this event and is the talent behind the beautiful hand written quotes written throught our salon and on our champagne glasses.  She’s a true gem and creative force!

Well…what can I say?!  I am the happiest person on earth when I’m around this amazingly talented and loving group!  My team is my everything and I’m so proud of each and every one of them.  I am proud of my long-time friends in the beauty and wedding industries, who have made theses past 20 years of my career an absolute dream come true.  I am proud of the hard work, care and dedication we have all put into our craft and our clients; which without, we would not be where we are today.  I am proud that I stayed focused over the years, to carry out my vision for the life I’ve always dreamed of; surround by incredibly beautiful and diverse friends, family, colleagues and clients.  I love you all and thank you from the core of my heart for your love, loyalty and support over the years!  Thanks for celebrating with us.

Have a fantastic long weekend and Happy PRIDE!
