Diamond Sponsor: Visit Mexico, Los Cabos Tourism and Puerto Vallarta


We are thrilled to announce that our Diamond Sponsor for the 12th Annual Crème de la Crème Grand Wedding Showcase is Visit Mexico, Los Cabos Tourism and Puerto Vallarta. Make your wedding an occasion that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Whether your preferences are on the formal side, or you prefer to let your hair down; whether you're in search of something natural, rustic and exotic, or smooth, well-run and professional: Mexico has it all. If it's a beach wedding you have in mind, luxurious Mexican hotels make the perfect setting for an exotic wedding, but offer all the comforts of luxury hotels and full catering. If you're planning something more simple and traditional, why not make your vows in a colonial church or temple? Mexico has it all and we invite you to explore the beauty of Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos.

See you at #CremeShow on November 20th at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver!

Nourish


We were thrilled to be invited to Nourish to learn a thing or two from the incredibly talented and passionate Chef Dan. Nourish Vancouver was born out of our curiosity about a sustainable food system, love for food and the environment, and a desire to nourish the ones we love. Their mission is to create a space to celebrate delicious food and help each other make the better decisions for our bodies and planet. It’s about believing that supporting local organic farmers, eating plant-based meals and sharing great conversations, can make a difference.

The Nourish Cooking School was an unforgettable experience where we learned by the guidance of Chef Dan to create Dan Dan Mian and Steamed Bao. It was the perfect environment for those who want to enjoy and learn how to make globally-inspired meals using local, organic, seasonal ingredients and ethically-sourced proteins. All of the dishes we made were unitimidating and delicious; all meals we could (thankfully) and will recreate at home.

A huge thank you to Chef Dan for teaching us how to create these delicious meals. We cannot wait to come back and learn more!

Breakfast at Tiffany's


We were thrilled to attend the annual "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and officially commence with the holiday celebrations! It was a perfect morning complete with tea and mimosas, pastries and breakfast bites, and custom cookies made specially for the occasion. We were also able to try on some gorgeous Tiffany jewels, including our favourite below - a 10 carat diamond ring of course! Needless to say, we've added a couple of items to our Christmas wish list! To see more from this event, please check out #ATiffanyHoliday and #BreakfastAtTiffany on instagram. Thank you Tiffany and Co. and Hawksworth Communications for putting on the fabulous soirée!
