Vancouver has been rocked today by news of the Waldorf closing – to be torn down for a condo development no less – and while I’m still in shock over the loss of such an incredible venue I’m going to try to remember all the great events we’ve been to there over the last few years. From conferences to art shows, live music, a wedding, a stagette, and even a wake… not to mention all the great dinners with friends at Nuba (ask us about the time Reilly and a friend tried to order a burger to share for dessert…) and nights spent dancing into the wee hours… Vancouver is losing something great.
On that sad note, this blog post is all about one of my favourite – and very happy – Waldorf events, Nicole & Rob’s Wedding!
I think I tripped over myself to reply to Nicole when she first got in touch, we are so fond of the Waldorf and quickly became equally as fond of these two. The skies parted and the sun came out on a chilly day in late October when they were surrounded by their closest family and friends for delicious food, Polynesian dancers, and good times!
Shouts go out to Bisou Bridal for the smoking dress worn by the Bride and Pinup Girl Clothing for that of her maid of honour, Fairy Cakes for the sweets, Flower Factory, the Chop Shop, and all the incredible folks at the Waldorf for the food and for keeping things running smoothly.
Here are a few of our favourites from their day!
