I was going to attempt to ‘Blog’ in the order of events throughout the year – but some events are just too exciting not to share right away!
At the end of the summer each year, ’tis the season of awards submissions. The deadlines for submitting work is usually the middle of September which is the tail end of the crazy busy season for most of the industry vendors. I’m sure that photographers secretly dread this time of year too – all the industry vendors desperately seeking photos that showcase their work from a particular wedding that fits within the submission period…
This year was my first time applying to the Professional BC Wedding Awards – I honestly was just excited for the chance of attending such an inspiring event and meeting more vendors in the industry! There was an impressive representation from the island – and so much fun for a large group of us to attend together and support each other in our niche market. All categories were presented fabulously with displays of the finalists’ work and the awarded winner. What an inspiring night! Some of the weddings showcased were beyond amazing and beautifully presented – it felt like something straight out of Hollywood! When we got down to the Floral portion of the presentation – I felt like a little kid, so excited to see the amazing entrys that would be honoured in the category. I follow the work of a lot of florists in the province and there is some serious talent out there – I was prepared to be completely blown away! Thinking back I guess I was right – but in a completely different sense of the word. When I heard the descriptions for ‘Best Bridal Bouquet’ being announced, it sounded all too familiar! Even more shocking when the same happened with the ‘Best Wedding Florist – Overall’ happened!! I couldn’t believe my ears! I’m very proud to say the FLEURtacious by Lynda Marie was amongst the Top 3 Finalists for both categories and within 10% of the winning entry. WOW!!! What an honour to be recognized amongst the amazing talent in this industry! Beautiful BC – I am completely in awe of all the talented people you possess – Congratulations to everyone involved!
