Wedding Season

With the wedding season about to start, and spring finally making an appearance we have been busy preparing orders for this coming season. We happened to come across a gallery and short youtube video highlighting one of our customers wedding from last year that we thought we would share. What an honour it is, whenever someone asks sparklingexpression to take part in such a special day like this.

You may have recalled this blog update from last year at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. Here is the link to the youtube video highlighting the wedding and giving you a peek at the vinyl expressions we had the pleasure of making for this wonderful day. If you would like to see some amazing photographs of the vinyl expressions and this wedding, unioneleven photography took some amazing pictures, including the one below. The photographs can be found at this wedding gallery.

Sneak Peek into National Arts Centre Dance Floor

A few weeks ago we wrote about a recent project we had finished at the National Arts Centre in downtown Ottawa. We have recently gotten permission to post a few pictures we snapped ourselves, with our phone camera. These are not professional pictures in any way, but we thought we would give our followers a sneak peek into what we have been up to as of lately. Quite a few weddings from dance floors, and glow bars to tumblers, bachelorette parties gift bags and wedding reception mason jar and wine glasses. All custom made.

And now for the sneak peek. (Professional Pictures to come in the near future)

To get an idea as to what this all looked like during the early evening, head on over to the facebook page for TOAST Special Events who coordinated this amazing rooftop wedding reception. It truly was an amazing experience and these pictures do not allow you the true experience that was had from seeing in person. The glass chargers, and wineglasses were hand polished and sparkling, the glow lights were simply amazing and the colours just popped out. Keep an eye on the TOAST page for professional pictures to come.
