Well this past Saturday I had the opportunity to sponsor and photograph the Touch of Gold Diamond Dash in downtown Halifax. Not sure what that is? Neither was I…at first….but once I found out that Touch of Gold Halifax was giving away a $10,000 ring, I thought I better check it out! All I can say is that we all better keep our fingers crossed that they do the event again next year. What an amazing energy when 176 teams of two took to the streets of Halifax in the hopes of winning a $10,000 ring. I had a great time running around the city (I can only imagine how hot the contestants were, I was sweating but could still see my breath….and I was allowed to use my car!!!) Mike & Janice from Touch of Gold were amazing to meet, and if you have a chance to check out their store in Spring Garden Place I think you may be surprised with some of the beautiful rings they have there (I have to admit…I was!) They are the only retailer in Nova Scotia for the Lazare Diamond, and I got to see this bad boy up close and personal and let me tell you that Diamond is BEAUTIFUL! The day wouldn’t have been as great a success without all of the wonderful sponsors! I love when they just happen to be some of my favorite places! Special mention to Touch of Gold, The Argyle, 101.3 The Bounce & Felicity Bridal! (I loved felicity bridal’s game, having to pick a style of bride and then select coordinating accessories and put them on a teammate! good fun!) Here are just a few pictures from the day.
I did have to mention the couple that won, we had caught them at a couple of different locations which was fun, but the best was when they were asked what their strategy was, her answer was “he yelled at me a LOT” So there you go! Winning strategy!
I’ll be sure to let you know if this happens next year because I’ll tell you you don’t want to miss out!!!
