Clockwise from top Left: Lotus Events table, some pretty vintage-look veils, bridal fashion show

Photobooth Vancouver was there! Sharon and I, and me and my cousin Michael (who is getting married in June, in California)

Pretty girls selling pretty things! I loved their mannequin heads.


Boy, I had fun at the Indie I Do wedding fair at my funny stripey little Coco Cake cupcakes booth! Organized by the hardworking cuties at Blue Olive Photography and Lotus Events, Indie I Do celebrated its second year of "indie" wedding ideas, showcasing some great local wedding vendors! Beautiful letterpress, arty and crafty event planning, reworked vintage veils, 1950s inspired hair pieces and fashion, green-friendly invitation design, gorgeous florals and more...

My dear pal and vegan chef extraordinaire Sharon was my right hand woman throughout the day-- we served up mini cupcakes for sampling, in three flavours: dark chocolate with vanilla buttercream, Lemon Frill (lemon cupcakes with lemon creamcheese frosting!) and Coconut Dream (coconut cupcakes with vanilla creamcheese frosting and toasted-by-me coconut!)

My plan was to do a fairly non traditional wedding set-up: blue and yellow vintagey themed, with two little yellow lovebirds made of fondant. Lemon cupcakes and coconut cupcakes made up the display in matching yellow and blue and white striped cupcake liners, and I handmade some little blue flags from vintage-look plaid paper to complete the vibe. It turned out pretty darn cute!!

Extreme props alert to Sharon for helping me all day (you're the best, Shabba!), Rafael for helping me set up and take down, and to my mommy too for bringing us lunch and snacks from Whole Foods!! Oooh I'm spoiled. All in all a great day, everyone was wonderfully friendly and I met lots of new vendor friends as well as some cute and adorable brides (and a few grooms!).

Yay! Fun times... xo

Oh, your booth was SO cute! We did a bridal show recently and topped each cupcake sample with a fondant "fantasy" flower and a silver dragee. They were cute, but I had a ton of questions as to whether of not they were edible. I supposed it broke the ice!
