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: Justine + Ian

Justine + Ian’s wedding was a chic, vintage inspired affair on a cool November day. Filled with love and laughter, 160 of their nearest and dearest shared their infectious happiness at the magical Fairmont Hotel Macdonald.

Both the ceremony and reception were held in the elegant Empire Ballroom. Justine’s love for all things vintage was evident by so many special touches – not a detail was missed. Black ribbons held a sprig of rosemary at each setting; vintage serving trays displayed guest seating arrangements; antique sofas and trunks provided soft seating in the foyer; and glowing candles were scattered throughout the tablescapes.

I’ll let these photos captured by the talented Sharon Litchfield transport you through every detail of their day – and if you’re itching to see more of this soirée, Justine shares some beautiful sentiments on her lifestyle blog, With Justine.

Thank you, Justine + Ian, for allowing us to be a part of your love story.

Edmonton Wedding Coordinator: Lee-Ann + Moe

Lee-Ann + Moe’s Art Deco inspired wedding at The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald was a day full of love! Both ceremony and reception took place in the beautiful Wedgwood Room – the perfect setting for the wedding theme. The classic decor had details reminiscent of the Art Deco era, including intricately beaded linens, Gatsby inspired stationery and lush, romantic florals with gold accents. Even the guests dressed in 1920s style attire!

They involved both their families in every part of the day: their grandchildren made up their wedding party; Lee-Ann’s brother and son walked her down the aisle; and their children were witnesses in the Signing of the Registry.

SideOne band provided the entertainment for the evening and they really brought the party with their high energy and incredible voices! Enjoy a glimpse at this special day captured by Nicole Ashley Photography.

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Kari Ann + Trent

Kari Ann + Trent knew exactly what kind of wedding they wanted: Sophisticated, Luxurious and Timeless. These words perfectly describe them as a couple too, which is precisely what your wedding should be – a reflection of your personalities and your relationship.

The ceremony was held in the iconic Hotel Macdonald Wedgwood Room, followed by refreshments and mingling with their guests on the terrace. We transitioned the all-white, classic design of the ceremony into a more bold and edgy look at the reception. Long rectangle tables with modern white florals suited the Art Gallery space perfectly.

Geometric design elements added a contemporary edge, beginning with gorgeous custom black and gold foil invitations by Pinkpolka. We used gold geometric place mats underneath glass charger plates, and custom gold acrylic laser cut names greeted each guest, doubling as both place card and favour.

After the meal and toasts guests hit the dance floor, and cotton candy on glow sticks brought next-level fun to this one-of-a-kind event! Just Married Photography did such an awesome job capturing the details of the day, not to mention shots of the STUNNING Bride + Groom.

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Desiree + Alfred

Timeless, elegant and full of luxe details, Desiree and Al’s summer wedding took place at two of our favourite Edmonton venues. The classically beautiful ceremony was held in Hotel Macdonald’s Wedgwood Room, and the contemporary Art Gallery of Alberta set the stage for the evening festivities. Fittingly, Desiree wore two dazzling Pnina Tornai dresses: a formal ballgown for the ceremony and a fitted evening gown for the reception.

These two are so sweet and caring, and the entire day was filled with love radiating from their wedding party, families and friends (who sure know how to party)!

DQ Studios captured the day beautifully, and A Love Story put together this awesome highlight film of the day.

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Charlotte + Frantz, Part 1

Charlotte + Frantz were married in an intimate ceremony at The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. They wanted to exchange vows in front of their immediate families, sharing the sacred moment with their most important supporters. They recited their own vows, which were so beautiful and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. I feel so honoured to have shared in this special moment with them.

Months later, they would celebrate with an ultra-modern reception at the Art Gallery of Alberta – more to come in Part 2!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Katrina + David

Katrina + David were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony last summer at Edmonton’s Royal Glenora Club. The sun was shining, the skies were blue – you’d never guess there was a torrential downpour just one hour before the ceremony was scheduled to begin! Luckily with some great teamwork we swapped out the chair cushions just in time to seat guests and send Katrina down the aisle looking absolutely angelic.

Just For You Photography was on hand to capture all the beautiful moments of the day, including the couple’s “first look” at The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. After the wedding Katrina + David enjoyed an amazing honeymoon in Italy!

Inspiration to Reality: Andrea + Tom

Andrea + Tom had a beautiful winter wedding back in February – in fact, they were our first 2013 couple to tie the knot! They wanted their Fairmont Hotel Macdonald wedding to feel more like a stylish party than a formal, over-the-top event. Designing around a neutral palette of ivory, taupe, grey and pops of metallic, together we achieved an event that exuded warmth and elegance with a touch of rustic charm. Here’s the Inspiration Board we used for the design:
