Adrienne, Jesse and baby Theo invited their families and friends all the way from Seattle and elsewhere to celebrate their winter wedding at Sea Cider House. It was by far the rainiest and darkest night of all of December. I mean downpour. Yet Adrienne kept her hopes up and nothing phased her and sure enough on the ride down to the venue the skies opened up, just like that, just enough for their sweet 15 min forest ceremony. Night fell exactly following their embrace and delicious hot chocolate and cider awaited inside. Adrienne opted to hold Theo down the Isle rather than flowers, catered by the reputable Toque Catering, getting ready at Heartwood and Co. and of course the great staff at Sea Cider.
Last month I was invited to talk at PechaKucha. Speakers show 20 slides at 20 seconds per slide, almost 6 minutes! At first I hesitated, way too intimidated to talk in front of a crowd. There’s a reason why I’m behind the camera. Which is why I accepted the invitation. To do just that, overcome my fear of public speaking and an opportunity to fine tune my last 30 years as an artist and review where I’m going with this. The images below are my artwork, cartoons and a wee little history. Of course the physical dialogue is missing, but you’ll get a small glimpse my creative history. Would I do a public speaking event again? In a heartbeat!
Kim and Craig threw a classy and fabulous post wedding party at the E&N Roundhouse in Vic West, following their intimate wedding a month before. Kim (also a talented wedding photographer and friend) asked me to shoot only for a few hours but to mostly party, which I did happily! They did a circle with all their 130 friends holding hands and quietly wishing them goodness. A heartfelt moment and my word these two are much loved! Talented to boot too, they planned the whole event with the following award-winning Toque Catering, flowers by Rose Florals, Dress from Blush, Rentals from Wise Co, and finally Dj Truth Sound Systems. Superb party!
