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!
