Wedding Preps Series: First visit at Light of Love Events Place

Wedding preps on the way. This is it.

A week after Yan proposed to me (and of course I said yes), we went to visit Light of Love in QC.  There was a time I got really into researching and planning for our future wedding even if we were not yet engaged. And the venue, of course, was my first priority in mind. I have researched so much and read so many feedback from blogs and forums. Compared this and that, weighed the pros and cons. I finally ended up loving Light of Love's Atrium, its glass ceiling, chandelier, intimacy, reasonable rates, and thought 'this is it' - my venue of choice. But those were the days when I was only dreaming. Now it's really happening. I did not think of re-visiting my other venue choice and my mind and heart stuck with LOL.

I immediately contacted the AE I was emailing before to get the updated rates. I was not planning to book the place yet until August after my business trip abroad, but when I found out that almost all weekends of December 2015 were booked already, I panicked.  I can't lose the place!

Keep Calm and Watch Movies

I love movies as much as I love books.  It transports me to another world where unicorns exist, where my prince charming can be Tom Cruise, where happily ever after is a dream come true.  All of us have these movies that changed our lives, opened our minds, challenged us, encouraged us to dream, pushed us to be kinder people, made us better.  I have a handful.  One of the movies which made a mark on me and made me fall in love with watching them is Pay It Forward. This movie starred by, child star then, Haley Joel Osment  and Kevin Spacey in 2000 restored my faith back in humanity, in the goodness that exists in each of us.  ‘Paying it forward’ is an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying it to others instead of to the original benefactor.  It was a novel published in 1999 by Catherine Ryan Hyde. The following year it was brought into the silver screen as a well-made and very inspiring film.  Movies like this that can affect its viewers in such a way that makes them better people is a masterpiece of life.

I love going to the movies, buying popcorn, and just enjoying the film without any distractions. I just hate it when I have to rush to the movie house just to find all seats sold out and wait for the next screening.   It’s the biggest nuisance when going to the movies. The most recent movie I’ve seen was X-Men: Days of Future Past and ended up getting seats I do not like (well better than ending up on LFS).  Now how about a pocket app that would let me buy tickets and get the best seats in a breeze through my smartphone? Yes, please. That would be super cool and super convenient.
