Island Gliteratti Party: Fabulous 40.Friends.Laugh.Sparkle. Like a Boss. at Caprice, Belize

There is a saying that some girls are born with glitter in their veins and I’ll add that whatever they touch, it sparkles. This is exactly what happened with Piper’s Fabulous 40th Birthday Party! A background created from a game of colours, champagne and an amazing setting.
Piper had a few things marked well on her “must happen” list: she wanted her guests to have tons of fun, enjoy good food, lots of champagne, amazing photos and dance until their shoes break. That is exactly what happened! Lots of laughing, drinking, dancing, props, cake and candy; many memories were created that night and I was there to capture them as best I could.
The party was impeccably organized (Findley Halliday, you did a heck of a job!)! When I was asked beforehand what was most important for the photos I quickly responded “LIGHTS!!! Beautiful Beautiful lights.” and so when I arrived and saw how everything was set up, I was in awe. It was fairytalish and perfect!
A glittery 40th birthday celebration as glamorous as the birthday girl herself!

McNab design ROCKED!

Fierce & Fabulous: Turning 40 a Party like no other!

Turning 40 is a big one! Probably, my most favourite age. I don’t need to say much of other than I truly believe that in your 40′s, you are fabulous & mature, financially stable, and most likely an accomplished woman…We often say, “I wish to be 20 again and have the mind I have now…” Well… it’s possible to look better in your 40′s than you ever did in your 20′s, all with a touch of sophistication. Lisa, my very good friend, approached me and told me,  “Oli, I want this to be best party ever“. Knowing her, I knew it would be fabulous, but I had no clue it would be THAT amazing! It was only a hand full of people, family and very close friends to her heart (Thank you, Lisa, for inviting me!).

The party was held at Villa Turquesa, North Ambergris Caye. So, yes, if you want your party in Belize you can consider this house and party like a rock star! The full moon helped for the photos and the night ended with Fireworks. Most of the guests did not go to sleep until the sun came up :) This is what I call a party!!! And this is how we do it in Belize! LISA14_08-08_038-web

Wednesday Morning kind of wedding in Paradise: Victoria House

Destiny has a way of finding your half and Jon & Pauline followed their path… and everything “sealed” in Belize and here we go, a new life just start!

Destiny is all about the choices we make and the chances we take.

A very simple wedding, only them 2, Wednesday morning, surrounded by Caribbean Sea, blessed by the voice of the wind through the palm trees, with sand under their toes they walked together on an red bougainvillea & conch shells aisle. I am used with Weddings at Victoria House, but for some reason, this one was different.

A morning wedding just have a different feeling and the light was amazing!

The entire scene was magical and their day was filled with joy and smiles.

Here are few of their photos:
