arOka Vintage was definitely the star of our Mini Spring Pop-Up Show. With a very well put together booth and a gorgeous school themed photo booth, Dawna Graham showed off just a taste of what arOka Vintage is capable of.
arOka Vintage is situated in Port Moody and with a shop filled with true antique finds, the store is a mecca for anyone wishing to host a vintage themed wedding.
Working together with arOka, sweet earth photographics took the photos for our guests using the ‘old school’ props. The photo booth was well received and everyone received their photos shortly after the show.
I learned a lot from bcdj and their great packages are custom made for the style of each couple and they run their business sustainably. The Shark Truth let couples know of their fantastic honeymoon prize of a trip to the Galapagos Islands for those wishing to forgo shark fin soup. EP!C gave away tickets for the upcoming show on Mother’s Day weekend and Arbonne International offered earth friendly make-up.
Jim Walton offered handmade and repurposed jewelry and table number holders from sterling silver cutlery. His jewelry is exquisite and what better way to reuse family antiques then have Jim mold them into new items. arOka Vintage now carries Jim’s jewelry and can be found in the Port Moody store.
Fairy Cakes offer vegan cupcakes made from locally sourced and sustainable ingredients. Their shop on Fraser Street allows them to be very accessible to discerning couples. One of the very yummy cupcakes pictured above sits on the beautiful ceramic wares of eikcam Designs. Often found at Fairy Cakes is Zimt Artisan Chocolates who offer a very healthy and yummy alternative to wedding favours.
Our donation recipient for this year is The Vancouver Food Bank and we are very grateful to make a financial contribution to their cause.
I again want to thank the very dedicated team of vollunteers who help set up and manage the fair every year.
