Using table linens, backdrops, and other wedding decorations, Sandy's Wedding Services helps to personalize event spaces for beautiful wedding receptions. Sandy's staff brings the bride and groom's visions to reality through set pieces such as backdrops for the wedding party dining table, and attractive chair covers. As each decoration is a piece of a fairy-tale puzzle, the company pairs its deep inventory of wedding decor with consultations on themes and setups, ensuring that everything falls into place on the big day.
More like a mobile photo studio, Pabs Photomagic's photo booths come replete with high-end lighting and muslin backdrop. But like a photo booth, guests get to pile in front of the camera to make funny faces and don goofy props such as crowns and jumbo sunglasses. Photo strips of those priceless moments are printed in a matter of seconds with customized layouts. To further enhance events, party-goers can add extras such as bubble machines and custom-made backdrops.
The team at Soirée Planners knows that, unlike their guests, parties are seldom completely spontaneous and carefree. They therefore strive to ease all aspects of the planning and execution process. Operating behind the scenes as well as alongside their clients, the seasoned event staff handles conference meetings with the same attentiveness as glamourous galas. They specialize in corporate gatherings, from conferences to Christmas parties, and customize each get-together so that staff appreciation banners aren't full of crossed-out names.
Their wedding division, meanwhile, helps to prep ceremonies with varying degrees of involvement. Their full-on planning package puts them in charge of almost all aspects, including budget creation, decor, acting as the point-person for vendors, and providing the bride with a personal assistant. By contrast, their less-involved coordination service leaves the finer details to the couple, and deploys the staff to aid with scheduling and day-of supervision.
Parties, from bar mitzvahs to office celebrations and birthdays, all need some sort of center. Everyone will inevitably end up orbiting around the heart of the celebration. D4 Photobooths keeps gatherings from huddling over dull bowls of salsa, though, with photo booths that encourage guests to pile in together and mug for cameras. That also frees party planners to have fun rather than snapping photos on their own the whole time.
Laughter drifts from the booths, which churn out customizable photos that can feature relatives and friends donning novelty glasses, hats, and masks. Rental packages include delivery and setup, as well as an onsite attendant, ensuring that the whole process runs smoothly without distracting the party's host.
Deft Audio’s professional music slingers bring their diverse collection of tunes to festivities ranging from corporate events to house parties throughout the Vancouver area.
Drawing from a massive music library that spans styles and decades, DJs tailor their sets to fit in song requests and change in response to crowd reactions, cultivating epic dance-offs and vigorous clapping. The tech savvy DJs turn traditional parties into audio-visual spectacles, coupling the beats from their sound systems with vapour tendrils from fog machines, sparkling disco balls, and film footage of interspecies friendships displayed on by-request-only projection screens.
The Lobby Restaurant and Lounge at Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier occupies a window-walled space on the hotel's ground floor, adjacent to the harbor. The proximity of the water provides pleasant views, but also ensures the chefs get fresh ingredients for their locally-sourced, sustainably-focused menu.
They specialize in using Vancouver's abundant seafood to their fullest advantage, creating dishes such as pan-seared halibut with pan-fried yams, sweet corn, and asparagus. Of course, they work with some of the fruits of the land, too, encrusting roasted racks of lamb in herbs and dousing them in rosemary brandy jus.
