& news cues By Kim Mah Tie One On The beauty experts behind local company Noir Lash Lounge have a fun new product up their sleeves: Love Me Knot hair ties. Hand-tied and made of a soft elastic designed to be gentle on hair, the pretty ponytail ties also double as sweet wrist accessories. Available in a wide range of colours and patterns, from bold glitter to soft florals, Love Me Knot makes the perfect bridal shower favour (or wedding favour, if you're planning on his and hers items). Hair ties sell for $2 each and headbands $4. * GO SLOW Photobooths may be standard fare at wedding receptions these days, but now there's a new twist: the slow-mo video booth. The latest in interactive fun, the slow-mo booth is operated by a trained videographer with a high-speed camera — and it allows you and your guests to let loose with a variety of props ranging from bubble wands to hula hoops. The result? Slow-motion hilarity (especially after a cocktail or two)! Modern Romance Productions (modernromanceweddings. com), the first business in Vancouver to offer the service, provides a range of wedding packages, from same- or next-day edits to DVDs and online galleries of unedited clips. In the Lower Mainland, slow-motion video was also just recently launched by wedding photographers Butter Studios ( PHOTOS BY MODERN ROMANCE PRODUCTIONS 14 PHOTO: SHAYD JOHNSON Gastown Gem How did a hockey player and a lacrosse player end up running a jewellery store together? For childhood friends Keith Seabrook and Dane Stevens, owners of Cavalier Fine Jewellery Shoppe in Vancouver's Gastown, it was all about teamwork and community. The only Canadian jewellery store to donate a percentage of every piece sold to a local charity or foundation, Cavalier also devotes plenty of shelf space to homegrown designers. Whether you have a custom engagement ring design in mind, or choose a one-of-a-kind piece from Cavalier's showroom, you can rest assured you'll be flashing a hand-picked, fair-labour Canadian diamond. real weddings planning guide 2014 p14,15_News+Cues.indd 18 13-11-26 11:54 AM
