Alyshea + Al-Karim (Part 3): JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District Wedding Reception

Alyshea and Al-Karim’s Gala Reception was the very first event held at the new JW Marriott in Edmonton’s trendy ICE District. The spectacular hotel opened just days earlier, providing a truly unique and luxurious experience for guests – most of whom had travelled to Edmonton to attend the weekend celebration.

When designing this signature event, we chose a white-on-white palette with accents of greenery and gold to provide a timeless look, while using clean lines and modern elements to coordinate with the ballroom. The evening was filled with superb food and entertainment, including 10-piece band Billboard Collective and an encore performance by Shweta Pandit.

To wrap up the weekend’s events, the couple hosted a next-day brunch in the iconic Wedgwood Room at Fairmont Hotel Macdonald.

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!

Alyshea + Al-Karim (Part 2): Aga Khan Garden Wedding Ceremony

On the heels of their Mehndi celebration, Alyshea and Al-Karim’s wedding ceremony was held at the new 4.8-hectare Aga Khan Garden – gifted by His Highness the Aga Khan. With a stunning waterfall set as the backdrop to their vows, nearly 400 guests gathered to witness their beautiful Ismaili ceremony. Bollywood singer-actor Shweta Pandit sang the couple down the aisle, and a Rubab-Tabla duo filled the gardens with traditional music.

Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed appetizers and refreshing rose sharbat as they mingled with the newlyweds before heading to the Gala Reception later that evening. You don’t want to miss the final post in this series – coming soon!

JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District Wedding: Vanessa + Jamie

Vanessa and Jamie were married in February 2020, and while we didn’t know it at the time, they were our last “normal” wedding before the world changed. Lucky for everyone in attendance, these newlyweds know how to celebrate!

Not ones for the traditional wedding reception format, Vanessa and Jamie chose to host their celebration with a cocktail party vibe to encourage mingling and dancing. With mixed style seating, creative food and drink stations around the room, Ukrainian dance performances and an incredible party band (The Barkells), they treated their loved ones to a night to remember at Edmonton’s new luxury hotel – JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District.

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:

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!

Edmonton Wedding Coordinator: Ania + Matthew

Ania and Matthew began their wedding day with a traditional ceremony at the spectacular Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. After the marriage was official, they took off for photos in a gorgeous red vintage Porsche!

The newlyweds celebrated with their loved ones later that evening at Fairmont Hotel Macdonald in the Wedgwood Room – one of our favourite Edmonton wedding venues – infusing several Ukrainian and Russian traditions to personalize the event. It was such a pleasure to provide Wedding Day Management for this happy couple! Enjoy this beautiful snippet of their day.

Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge Wedding Planner: Jillian + Jason

Jillian and Jason wanted their wedding to feel like a getaway while still being close enough for guests to attend. Their loved ones travelled from Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver, joining them in beautiful Jasper for a weekend of celebratory events. One of our favourite venues, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge offers a unique blend of luxury amidst unspoiled nature, set against the most spectacular backdrop of snow-capped mountains and glacier-fed lakes⁣.

Despite a little rain, their outdoor ceremony prevailed and spirits were anything but dampened at the epic party that followed. See more of Jillian and Jason’s wedding featured in Blush Magazine.

Edmonton Wedding Coordinator: Haley + Dillon

Haley and Dillon exude kindness and carry themselves with grace. Their wedding day embodied those same qualities and was the most perfect, timeless celebration of their love! After a traditional church ceremony at St. Joseph’s Basilica, they hosted their guests for dinner and dancing at the Royal Mayfair Golf Club.

We love reliving their day through this beautiful highlight film produced by A Love Story, and their gorgeous images by Nicole Ashley.

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Ashley + Sean

Ashley and Sean’s wedding was the perfect combination of tradition and classic elegance meets modern design. They shared a first look at Fairmont Hotel Macdonald where they took photos in the beautiful gardens before heading to St. Josaphat’s Cathedral for a traditional Ukrainian Catholic ceremony. The newlyweds hosted a modern reception at Art Gallery of Alberta, which we dressed up in black and white with touches of champagne and rose gold.
