The Social Concierge transformed David Lam Park into an entirely new world when they produced the parisian event, Diner en Blanc. The evening was filled with magic and felt like a dream as 3500 guests attended dressed in all white attire to be surrounded by performers dancing along the perimeters, with Big Love Balls scattered all around, caterers from Hawksworth Restaurant serving exquisite canapés and french music setting the mood.
Everybody began to arrive around 6pm (when they were notified of where to go) with their tables, chairs and dinnerware, matching their white outfits.
The prestigious evening had finally arrived and excitement was contagious!
Entertainers from the Arts Umbrella and the Vancouver Opera performed for the thousands and as the sun set, sparklers were handed out to be lit and they made the sky glow. The rest of the night everybody mingled, celebrating the event, creating memories and capturing moments among incredible backdrops.
Diner en Blanc began in Paris over 25 years ago and made its way to Vancouver in 2012, turning into a magnificent tradition.
Here are a few of my favourite shots from the event:
