Enchanted Evening at VanDusen Botanical Gardens

An evening of enchantment to celebrate 50 years of marriage took place in a spectacular setting of VanDusen Botanical Gardens.  After Champagne and hors d’oeuvre in the rose garden, guests were escorted to a beautiful wisteria draped arbour to enjoy a caviar station serving organic BC sturgeon caviar complimented with shots of tequila and vodka.
