Alyshea + Al-Karim (Part 1): Mehndi Party at Fairmont Hotel Macdonald

Alyshea and Al-Karim celebrated their union with multiple events over a weekend in Edmonton – a destination they chose because of the recently opened Aga Khan Garden at the University of Alberta Botanic Garden.

This wedding weekend was such a delight to plan and design (and there are so many incredible details to share!) that we’re breaking it into three blog posts:

  • Part 1 – The Mehndi Party at Fairmont Hotel Macdonald
  • Part 2 – The Wedding Ceremony at Aga Khan Garden
  • Part 3 – The Gala Reception at JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District

The festivities kicked off with a Bollywood Chic Mehndi party at Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. Guests enjoyed a custom ‘Flavours of India’ menu and could visit a draped Mehndi tent to have professional henna artists adorn their hands with beautiful designs.

The event featured dance performances, traditional Ismaili ceremonies and Vancouver’s Juno-nominated DJ A-SLAM. Stay tuned for Parts 2 and 3 coming soon…

This wedding is not only featured on Wedluxe, but it was also honoured as a finalist for Best Wedding over $150,000 at the 2020 Canadian Event Awards!

Pemberton Wedding Planner: Aasttha + Prasann

There was something magical about Aasttha + Prasann’s wedding day. The warm sun, a serene calm in the air, the majestic beauty of North Arm Farm – perhaps something else, that can’t be explained. But the feeling of that day truly embodied Aasttha + Prasann’s beautiful personalities and the love they share.

Traditional East Indian wedding customs were blended with a laid-back, organic vibe in a truly picture-perfect setting. North Arm Farm is a hidden gem of a venue, tucked away in Pemberton, B.C. – a short drive north of Whistler.

My words won’t do this day justice, but luckily you can read more about it in the Wedding Tales feature by Edmonton Journal, and you absolutely cannot miss watching this highlight film shot in Super 8mm film by Tomasz Wagner. It is such a perfect showcase of the day and the love that surrounds this special couple.
