Victoria Wedding Planner: Jahan + Michael (Pt 1)

Jahan and Michael chose to have an intimate destination wedding where Michael grew up on Vancouver Island. The dreamy Brentwood Bay Resort was the perfect fit to give their guests an experiential weekend on the beautiful West Coast.

The wedding events began with a Pithi and Mandvo on the Terrace, where guests were invited to have Mehndi done by a talented Henna Artist. Later that evening, the Sangeet celebration was held on the pool deck. Guests dined on fusion cuisine and danced the night away!

Stay tuned for Part 2 – the Wedding Day

Luxury Edmonton Wedding: Bethany + Mathew (PT 1)

When we began the discovery process with Bethany + Mathew, we quickly learned they wanted to host a wedding weekend to bring together everything that is most important to them: family, friends, food and fun! This lead to the production of three unique events that honoured their cultural and religious backgrounds. The festivities began with an Indian Soirée at Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. Guests were invited to have Henna art done in the Mehndi Lounge while experiencing traditional music and a variety of delicious food stations. The outdoor bar on the Empire Terrace overlooking the River Valley was the perfect place to enjoy the beautiful September weather.

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Sabrina + Romeo

Sabrina and Romeo had planned to be wed in New York City at the Rainbow Room in April 2020…we all know how that went. Another couple’s plans deeply impacted by the pandemic, and yet another resilient and optimistic response. They moved it home to Edmonton, Canada, and with only a 6-month planning timeline we worked together to produce a very different event than they had initially envisioned.

Trading skycrapers for an entirely outdoor wedding, Sabrina and Romeo’s late summer soirée featured a mirrored aisle for their Sikh ceremony, live violinists, modern Indian cuisine, and two DJs. There was even a suprise appearance by Punjabi singer, Jazzy B! As a nod to their original venue, the Rainbow Room, we had the iconic compass featured on their dance floor.

“I don’t even know if I have words for you. I woke up Saturday morning wondering if our wedding was a dream. It was beyond perfect, to the point that I think it outdid what could have ever become of the Rainbow Room. I never thought in a million years I could say that – New York was always our dream – but I woke up realizing I had the wrong dream the whole time…I don’t even know how to say thank you. You outdid yourself. You surpassed all my expectations…Romeo and I will forever cherish what you did for us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge Wedding Planner: Jocelyn + Naheed

Residing in Toronto, Jocelyn and Naheed wanted to host a destination wedding in the majestic Rockies to bring together their loved ones from across the country (and beyond). The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge fit the bill as the perfect venue for their weekend of events.

  • The weekend kicked off with a welcome event held in the Golf Clubhouse, complete with live music and a food truck serving sweet treats and traditional East African delights.
  • The next morning, Jocelyn and her crew had their Mehndi done while enjoying brunch. Guests joined them on the lawn of the Stanley Thompson Cabin to partake in the Pithi and Mandvo – traditional Ismaili ceremonies held before the wedding to bless the couple with well wishes.
  • Everyone donned their best lehengas and Indian suits for the evening Sangeet held in a clearspan tent on Beauvert Plateau. Set right in front of the lake, the colourful decor and attire made for spectacular photos as DJ Double J brought the party!
  • Saturday was reserved for an outdoor ceremony held on Whistlers Plateau, with both western and Ismaili rituals. The evening Gala followed in Beauvert Ballroom and featured a 4-course meal, heartfelt toasts. The Rondel Roberts Band and Double J alternated sets keeping guests on the dance floor into the early hours of the morning!
  • Sunday morning brunch wrapped up the incredible weekend.

It was certainly challenging planning a multi-event destination wedding during the pandemic (to say the least!), but it all turned out phenomenally. We are especially grateful to Jocelyn, Naheed and their families for being so wonderful to work with and such kind, gracious humans.

The Lake House Calgary Wedding Planner: Jessica + Eric

Carats & Cake Blog Featured WeddingAfter Jessica and Eric’s venue closed unexpectedly during the Covid-19 pandemic, plans quickly shifted and they decided to hold their wedding closer to home in Calgary, Alberta.

We transformed The Lake House from rustic hunting cabin to whimsical garden. Nine chandeliers were adorned in foliage and florals and the grand fireplace was flanked with pillars of elegant blooms. From the caricature artist, a karaoke dance party and late night bubble tea, Jessica and Eric created a personalized and memorable experience for their guests. We were giddy with excitement to see this event featured on Carats & Cake!

Their day was nothing short of the fairytale they deserved – a truly magical start to the next chapter of their love story – and we are honoured to have been a part of their Calgary wedding.
