Friday Feature: De La Flore designs

We’re back for another Friday Feature, a recent initiate that we started here on the blog to showcase some of the incredible talent that we have in the Vancouver wedding industry! This time with our partner florist: Estefani of De La Flore designs.

De La Flore is a life-long dream of Estefani, the owner and lead floral designer, who created a beautiful design studio based here in Vancouver. Estefani prides herself on creating designs that are dreamy and romantic with a sense of wild. She uses different kinds of textures and foliage, along with natural blooms and eco-friendly supplies, to create the florals of your dreams. We especially love her because of her focus on supporting local growers and using seasonal blooms as much as possible.

De La Flore has been featured in many printed and online publications including West Coast Weddings, Real Weddings, Rocky Mountain Bride. We’ve been BIG fans of Estefani for a number of years, and finally had the opportunity to collaborate on a garden-party inspired styled shoot, photos of which are featured in this blog post. Our new elopement and intimate weddings package is live, and includes florals from De La Flore designs.

We can’t wait to bring all of the love, care and beautiful details to your wedding, whether it’s just the two of you, or 20 of your closest people. Drop us a line via natasha@clearwaterevents.org!

Friday Feature: Blended by Amber

We’re all about a collaborative atmosphere here at Clearwater, and love to shout-out the amazing talent we have in the Vancouver wedding industry! Our elopement and intimate wedding package features some of our favourite people to work with, and ones that we’ve had the opportunity to get to know and love over the years. To show our thanks, we thought we’d start a new initiative here on the blog, featuring a new vendor from this collaboration every other Friday. To kick us off, we thought we’d start out with one of our partners that we’ve had the pleasure of knowing for many years now, and who has kept us (and our brides!) looking their best: Amber Rodan of Blended by Amber.

A small town girl, with artistic dreams, Amber moved to Vancouver and began her make-up journey over 10 years ago. She has experience working in every aspect of the industry, from managing salons and spas, to creating stunning hair and make-up looks on brides of every skin-tone, style and preference.

Amber is dedicated to creating an amazing experience for her clients while helping them become the best versions of themselves through beautiful hair and make-up techniques. She incorporates sustainable and eco-friendly products that are not only beneficial to her clients and their skin, but also help to create a smaller carbon footprint and prevent animal cruelty. This is very important to us, as we strive to work with vendors that share our values of sustainability and ethical practices.

The level of talent that Amber has is unreal, and she has an extensive resume to show this, having been featured in Rocky Mountain Bride, BRIDES, West Coast Weddings and so many more publications. She is also a winner of multiple 2019 International Beauty Industry Awards, including awards for Best Eco/Sustainable Makeup Artistry and Best Natural Makeup.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with Amber on a number of weddings and styled shoots, which include all of the photos featured in this blog post. Our new elopement and intimate weddings package will be coming soon with full details and pricing, and will include full Hair and Make-up services from Blended by Amber.

We can’t wait to bring all of the love, care and beautiful details to your wedding, whether it’s just the two of you, or 20 of your closest people. Drop us a line via natasha@clearwaterevents.org! 

 

Small Celebrations, Big Love: Our New Services!

 

As sustainably-focused wedding planners, we’ve always been supportive of small, intimate celebrations. We truly appreciate the level of detail and luxury (#ecoluxe) that can be incorporated when the guest count doesn’t come into play.

In Late 2019, the Clearwater Team began making plans to implement a brand new intimate wedding and elopement package, based on our love of beautiful, intimate weddings and their ability to bring together those closest to the couple, while also offering a level of luxury and quality that may not be accessible when holding a larger celebration.

We have been working quietly behind the scenes to create new packages that allow for our couples to easily plan their elopements or intimate ceremonies with intention, beauty and sustainability. The hope is that our new services can assist in helping you to create the day of your dreams, while offering you access to experienced, talented vendors who will go the extra mile to make your wedding magical.

Love knows no bounds, and neither do we. From a romantic mountain-top vow exchange, to a luxury long-table dinner for your closest family, we’re here to make it happen. We can’t wait to sit down with you and share ideas!

We are pleased to be partnering with some of Vancouver (& BC’s) best wedding vendors:

You can find our new information package here, which includes full details and pricing for our elopement and intimate weddings packages.
