Kelowna Wedding Planner: Nelia + Brennan

Nelia and Brennan wanted to celebrate their wedding with a close group of family and friends, and decided on a destination wedding so the festivities could be spread over a weekend. Their love of great wine and warm weather made Kelowna the perfect choice – I mean, who wouldn’t want to be married in a vineyard!?

We arranged for shuttle transportation to take everyone from downtown Kelowna to the ceremony site at Ex Nihilo Winery in Lake Country. Forest fires in the Okanagan region made the view a bit hazy, but it was still a stunningly beautiful backdrop for their vows. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed sparkling wine and passed canapés in the vineyard.

The reception was held at a true gem of a venue – The Laurel Packinghouse in downtown Kelowna. The building is part of the Kelowna Museums Society and its exposed brick, wooden beam ceiling and hardwood floors made it the perfect canvas for an Industrial Glam design. A soft neutral palette of whites, creams, blush and gold added romance to the setting. Lush greenery runners and a stunning hanging greens head table backdrop brought life and vibrancy to the space. Ample candlelight on the tables and café lights strung from the ceiling beams added a warm, welcoming glow to the event.

The four-course meal was one of the best we’ve ever had at a wedding, and that’s all thanks to Details Catering. The perogies appetizer course was a nod to Brennan’s Ukrainian heritage and this was certainly a highlight of the meal. An absolute must-have for Nelia and Brennan was McDonald’s cheeseburgers as a late night snack! Their wishes were fulfilled, and guests munched on the McD’s delicacies while dancing up a storm to the mixes of DJ Invizible.

Featured in the Fall/Winter 2018 issue of Weddingbells Magazine, here’s a sampling of the gorgeous images by Jenna Hill Photography and a fantastic highlight video of their day by Tailored Fit Films.

Inspiration to Reality: Sandy + Steve

Sandy + Steve wanted their winter wedding to be dramatic, romantic, elegant and bold. We let the stunning glass ceilings at The Enjoy Centre serve as inspiration for the design, allowing the deep blue night sky to shine through and enhancing it with additional blue lighting around the perimeter of the space. White and gold textured lighting was used to breakup the blue, mimicking twinkling stars. Metallic elements were carried throughout the design to ensure the sparkle of winter was present, while rich tones of cranberry and red florals brought vibrancy and life to the tables. The inspiration:

Lake Louise Wedding Planner: Jenny + James

It’s the middle of the summer and the last thing you want to do is think about snow. But today’s Real Wedding post will make you want to welcome winter with open arms!

There’s something about The Chateau Lake Louise that makes it such a special place to visit. There’s an atmosphere of serenity like you’re removed from the busyness of the everyday. Add snow-capped mountains and crisp blue sky and it’s winter wedding perfection!

Jenny + James chose to get married a few days after Christmas so that visiting family members from the UK could be in attendance at this special occasion. Both their ceremony and reception were held in the Victoria Ballroom, where a warm stone fireplace served as the backdrop for their nuptials while beautiful sounds of cello and violin filled the room.

Their gorgeous wedding party, outfitted in timeless black and white, braved the chilly air for picturesque views prior to returning to the ballroom for cocktails. The reception design was classic with a dash of whimsy. Gold chiavari chairs, pewter frames, silver julep vases and gold charger plates developed the mixed metallic palette, adding to the elegance of the space. The wedding cake design was based on Jenny’s grandparents’ cake and a photo of the original was placed on the cake table along with it.

Sharon Litchfield never ceases to impress with her stunning photography. Enjoy Jenny + James’ love story from behind her lens…

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Ruhee + Ashish

WedLuxe Magazine Canada Luxury WeddingsLast week we shared the inspiration behind Ruhee + Ashish’s luxurious pink and gold wedding. With elegant, romantic undertones and bold, glamorous details, it’s no surprise that this soirée caught the attention of WedLuxe – Canada’s luxury wedding magazine.

WedLuxe Magazine Canada Luxury WeddingsThe day before the wedding, Ruhee’s family greeted a large contingent of Ashish’s family and friends flying in from Chicago. Following a festive welcome they enjoyed a delicious meal at Sorrentino’s Downtown. The next morning was an early start as guests were shuttled to Eagle Rock Golf Course for the ceremony, followed by a celebratory lunch.

The reception was held later that evening in The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald’s Empire Ballroom. Most couples like to play it safe and stick with the ballroom’s natural elegance in neutral tones, but we were thrilled that Ruhee + Ashish wanted to break the norm and allowed us to design the space to look like it never has before! The lighting started out with an elegant golden glow which transitioned to a vibrant pink during the dance to add energy to the room – a perfect way to accelerate the party!
