Edmonton Wedding Planner: Mariah + Nathan

High school sweethearts, Mariah + Nathan have a love for tradition and an affinity for Old World Romance, making The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald the perfect setting to celebrate their love story.

It was a complete hotel takeover, with Team JBW working hard the morning of the wedding to transform three different spaces. After a touching ceremony in the Wedgwood Ballroom, guests joined the newlyweds on the terrace for a garden party complete with refreshments, live music and caricature artists. Cocktails were held in the Empire Foyer, where guests mingled and snapped candids in a photo booth to help make a memorable guest book for Mariah + Nathan.

The doors to the Empire Ballroom opened, unveiling timeless décor, with English Garden inspired florals in soft creams and pinks. The first of many surprises throughout the evening, Mariah + Nathan entered the ballroom sharing their first dance to singer and pianist Lindsey Nagy’s rendition of A Thousand Years. The festivities continued with a 5-course meal, a delicious “sweet bar,” signature drinks poured through a custom ice luge, a surprise hip hop performance, and two dress changes!

Thanks to Shandro Photo and A Love Story for beautifully capturing the day. Enjoy!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Kyle + Chase

Blush Magazine 2014Kyle + Chase…where do I begin. They are two of the most kind-hearted gentlemen I know, and anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting them knows they will bend over backwards for their loved ones. Oh, and they’re unbelievably handsome. It’s obvious, but deserves acknowledgment!

It was a perfect summer day at the Fort Edmonton Blatchford Air Hangar. The wedding combined black tie formality (guests dressed in black, white or grey) with an outdoor, carefree vibe – a theme that is very reflective of Kyle + Chase’s personalities.

They exchanged vows under a live tree covered with ribbons and over 3,000 paper cranes. The first dance (Tracy Chapman’s ‘The Promiss’) was performed by singer/songwriter Krystle Dos Santos, while guests lit sparklers and surrounded the happy couple. It was truly a magical moment!

This beautiful wedding was featured in Blush Magazine’s Fall/Winter 2014 issue. Head over to the online feature to read more about their wedding and incredible proposal story!

Yogalife Studios Edmonton

With locations in both north and south Edmonton, Yogalife Studios offers a variety of drop-in yoga classes, workshops and registered courses in both heated and regular temperatures. Yoga is a great way to gain strength and flexibility, and it is a wonderful complement to other sports and activities, such as running and weight lifting. Hot yoga can also be great for the skin which is another plus for a soon-to-be bride!

Instructor Lindsey Park offers these tips to make the most of your yoga practice:

  • Hydrate well throughout the day or the hours before practice.
  • Eat clean and light, and not too close to the time you are planning to practice. Waiting 2-3 hours after eating is suggested.
  • Choose light, comfortable clothing that moves well with your body.
  • Give yourself plenty of time to get changed and settled at the studio (arriving 15-30 minutes before class is advised). You don’t want to feel frazzled or rushed coming into your practice.
  • Bring a yoga mat, a towel and a water bottle. 

Yogalife Studios offers new clients a four-week pass for only $40! Visit their website for a list of class types and more information on how to get started. Namaste.

Barre Body Studio EdmontonYou’ve probably heard the buzz around Edmonton’s Barre Body Studio. A blend of ballet, Pilates and yoga, Barre fitness is the hottest new workout trend since Zumba! Low impact movements and isometric holds create long, lean muscles giving you a toned look without causing injuries. Barre will improve your posture, making you stand prouder and taller on your big day.

All you need is water and a pair of grip socks, which can be purchased at the Barre Studio. Weights, resistance bands, mats and exercise balls are all supplied as needed in your class. We asked owner Megan Clark about what to expect when trying Barre for the first time:

“Watch and listen carefully to the instructor and follow along as best you can. Everyone works at their own level – if necessary, take a break and rest for a few reps. The movements are very small and controlled so no one has to worry about looking silly and out of place. Be prepared to rock out to awesome tunes and to feel muscles that you’ve never felt before!”

Check out Barre’s website for more information and to sign-up for your first class. All new clients can take advantage of a 2-week unlimited special for only $40!

The old adage ‘you are what you eat’ couldn’t be more true. What you put into your body plays a significant role in how you feel physically, mentally and emotionally. For our second Wedding Wellness giveaway we’ve enlisted Edmonton’s very own Glow Juicery and food.fitness.function to help you reach your nutritional goals.

Located in two fitness studios (Barre Body and Soul Spin), Glow Juicery has been brightening the Edmonton community with their fresh raw juices, smoothies and snacks for almost a year now. Cleansing guru and owner, Marnie Ashcroft, believes that juice cleansing is a great start to a healthy path of making excellent food choices everyday, especially when coupled with clear fitness goals: “The result is a balance of wellness that truly becomes an integral part of your life.”

Glow Juice Cleanses are a natural, plant-based reset for your body. A cleanse will temporarily rid processed foods, dairy, gluten and animal-based protein from your diet allowing your body to focus on absorbing the phyto-nutrients and enzymes in the juices, resulting in a naturally lighter and detoxified you! There are three levels to choose from: Beginner (1-3 days), Intermediate (3-5 days) and Advanced (3-7 days). Glow’s neatly packaged bottles are easy to bring with you to work or busy wedding appointments. You can find Glow at a number of cafés and studios in the Edmonton Area.

Edmonton Health CoachElissa Jamieson, Health Coach & Personal Trainer at food.fitness.function, shares her number one tip for staying on track with your nutritional goals:

“Plan your meals in advance so that you always have something healthy to throw together or snack on – no more cheap quick fixes!”

This is especially important when you have a busy schedule and may not have time to cook every day. food.fitness.function offers personalized 3- and 6-month Health Coaching Programs, as well as Grocery Shopping Tours for individuals and groups. For fun health tips and delicious recipes follow Elissa on Twitter and Facebook.

Wedding Wellness Giveaway #1: lululemon athletica Southgate Centre

lululemon athletica Edmonton_Ocean Run

Planning a wedding can add extra stress to your life, but your well-being shouldn’t take a backseat to checklists and Pinterest boards. Throughout the month of May we are partnering with local health & wellness businesses to give away custom wellness experiences to help you be the best version of yourself during this exciting time!

Starting a new fitness regime or continuing one that already works for you requires the appropriate attire with excellent fit and functionality. One of the leading designers of athletic apparel is Vancouver-based lululemon athletica. lululemon was founded on the premise of gathering feedback from athletes in the community to design high-quality gear that is functional and fashionable.

Natasha Genoud, Assistant Store Manager at lululemon’s Edmonton Southgate Centre location, shares what to look for when searching for the perfect outfit to get your sweat on:

“The Silverescent fabric is a must-have in terms of a lightweight top. Silverescent garments are woven with silver which inhibits the growth of odour-causing bacteria so you can wear the garment multiple times before having to wash it. The 105F Singlet Silver (below left) or a Swiftly Tech (below right) short sleeve shirt have those properties and are perfect for a high intensity boot camp or interval training class.”

lululemon athletica shirts

For bottoms, Natasha recommends the Luxtreme fabric as it fits like a second skin: “It is compressive, sweat-wicking and has four-way stretch so it moves freely with you when you do squats and lunges. Items like the Inspire Crop II (below left) and Wunder Under Crop (below right) pants are great choices for your fitness wardrobe.”
