Producing an Opulent Fashion Soirée | A Couture Runway



A few weeks ago, we were thrilled to plan and execute a fashion show for Cachè Couture Atelier, a boutique in Vancouver specializing in couture garments. The goal for our client was to showcase her divine and truly luxurious couture, handmade creations. Working closely with the client to bring her vision to life, we invited the VIP crowd, sourced divine elements like the lighting, personalized details, and of course, opulent blooms. Working with the models, each walked the runway in front of Vancouver's most notable media. The pre-fashion show crowd dined on nibbles, and sipped on bubbles enjoying the chic and sophisticated atmosphere, mingling to the sounds of a Cuban band, and ode to the owners heritage.

The fashion shows we work on are seamless since by producing all facets of the event, from event conceptualization to all aspects of production design including all technical media production, casting, styling and hair & makeup, décor, security, marketing and public relations, live event direction and show execution, each element comes together to take your guest on a journey of delight. Our fashion show services will ensure you stand out from the crowd!

Planning an Outdoor Wedding | Tips for Your Perfect Day



Spring is here and summer is just around the corner… this is a favourite time of year for us; wedding season is here! Planning an outdoor wedding is a wonderful way to embrace warmer weather and celebrate your love, al fresco. Holding your ceremony, reception or both outdoors allowing the landscape to truly frame your big day can be a beautiful way to honour your love. Dealing with the details of your nuptials is where we shine, and these are our tips for getting hitched without a hitch!

Create an Experience

If your wedding is being held during a warmer month (July or August come to mind), ensuring your guests comfort is a priority. Making sure there is ample shade, refreshments, fans and even bug repellant (citronella candles) are smart moves that will keep them enjoying your special moment right up until your last dance.

Prep for Plan B

Ok, so we don’t want to be a ‘dark cloud’, but rain could be a possibility no matter the time of year. If your outdoor space doesn’t have an indoor alternative, consider a back up tent. Renting one just to be safe might be the ultimate saving grace to protect your wedding day.

Consider the Atmosphere

Lighting your surfaces and creating layering with your lighting creates such a beautiful atmosphere. Trees are an excellent opportunity to hang twinkle lights, chandeliers and lanterns to make a memorable, one of a kind décor statement. Just don’t forget to make sure you have power on-site!

Consider Local Bylaws

Depending on where you are holding your nuptials, consider certain bylaws and liquor laws. Do some research about what kind of rules and permits you’ll be subjected to before you plan anything. Saying “I Do” at the park near your childhood home may seem like the best idea ever, but there could be a few more kinks to iron out than you realize.
