The Epic Dance Party Wedding

There are so many things we remember from Joris and Jo’s wedding.  Firstly, their back story!  Joris is from Holland, and Jo is Canadian.  The two of them met when they were both studying abroad in Australia.  On a flight for a quick trip on a break, fate would have Joris and Jo sitting side by side, talking and getting to know each other the whole way.  These two have continued to travel the world together, and have had some amazing adventures.

Their wedding was fun and colourful, exactly our style. Check out the photos below, all courtesy of Dana Fisher Photography.

The couple were married on Granville Island and the reception was held at Performance Works. Dinner, featuring pulled pork sandwiches (yum!!), was catered by Drew Cooks.  We were also delighted to get to work with Jane at Budget Blooms who took care of the colourful flowers for the event!

The fondest memory we have from this wedding was the seriously epic dance party!  Every single guest was up on the dance floor for hours- Jo didn’t even stop for water until the very end of the night!  We don’t see this kind of dance party too often at weddings- it was really amazing!  Thanks to First Class DJ for facilitating this epic time.

Here’s what the happy couple had to say about Umbrella Events:

Cristie was absolutely amazing! I don’t think I can express how incredible she was throughout the planning stages of our wedding and even more so coordinating the day of. She was always so supportive of our vision and worked with us to think of creative ways to make our day even more special. She always kept our budget in mind and never pressured us to spend more than we wanted. I planned the wedding in Vancouver from across the country and could not have done it with her! If you want someone who will be flexible, creative and enthusiastic about planning your special day then definitely choose Umbrella Events!
