Edmonton Wedding Planner: Samantha + Raymond

It was the end of a cold snap in Edmonton, and Samantha and Raymond’s guests were so excited to be out of the house attending a beautiful wedding! Side note: we love winter weddings and don’t think they get enough credit!

One of the most important parts of their big day was ensuring they threw an awesome party for their guests, so Sam and Ray put a lot of thought into the food and drinks they served, the entertainment they hired, and memorable touches. Pops of lavender, mauve and blush added warmth and romance to The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald’s iconic Empire Ballroom, where both the vows and celebration were held.

One of the highlights of the day was Ray’s speech at the reception – his delivery was so endearing, not to mention hilarious! It was among the best we’ve ever heard and everyone was in stitches! A nod to the winter season, a hot chocolate station opened later in the evening with all the toppings you could imagine, as well as cake pops and biscotti to snack on.

Infused Studios delivered a stunning collection of images for the happy couple to look back on their day – enjoy!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Edmonton Country Club Wedding

J+M’s August wedding was the perfect blend of romance and celebration! We designed the day to be timeless with a lush garden theme. Fittingly, the ceremony was held at the beautiful Devonian Gardens and featured a stunning chuppah covered in greenery, curly willow, vibrant florals and fruit.

The reception was held at Edmonton Country Club – a gem tucked away in the River Valley with outstanding service and food. We setup a tent on the patio over the dance floor, creating a most excellent outdoor dance party setting. Inside the event space long rectangle tables were covered with lush greenery, gold candelabras, florals and fruits, including pears, apples, grapes, strawberries and plums. Gold Chateau chairs, ornate glass charger plates and timeless stationery completed the table design.

This wedding incorporated several different cultural traditions: a traditional Chinese Lion Dance for the couple’s grand entrance, a Ukrainian dance performance by the Cheremosh Dance Company to kick off the party, and Jewish Hora dancing to continue the celebrations. It was such a delight for guests to see these unique customs woven together to celebrate the newlyweds!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Linda + Marcus

When we first met Linda + Marcus they shared that the movie Up! has special meaning in their relationship, so including balloons in their wedding celebrations was a given.

Known for telling stories through their photography, Infused Studios were the perfect fit to document Linda + Marcus’ special day. Their Up! themed engagement session was featured on Love & Lavender! We also incorporated balloons down the aisle at their gorgeous Magrath Mansion ceremony.

The reception was held at one of our favourite Edmonton wedding venues – The Art Gallery of Alberta – where gold metallic elements were paired with vibrant shades of purple to create a striking design. It’s hard to believe it has nearly been one year since the big day!

Bouquet Inspiration: Bright + Bold

Part 2 of our bouquet inspiration series – we’re featuring bright and bold bouquets full of colour! Bold bouquets really pop against a white or cream wedding dress.

Keep it all one colour for a more classic look, or play with various shades of a colour for more dimension and texture. To make an even bigger statement, pair complementary colours such as fuchsia and kelly green or violet and tangerine.

Here’s a collection of JBW brides who have chosen to go with bright and bold bouquets on their wedding day!

Bouquet Inspiration: Classic White

The bridal bouquet is a very important element of your wedding. You’ll be photographed with it for much of the day – it absolutely must reflect your wedding style AND look great with your gown and accessories! In the name of inspiration, we’re flooding the blog with flowers and featuring a series on different styles of beautiful bouquets!

+  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +

First up – Classic White. You can rarely go wrong with an all-white/cream bouquet – it’s perfect for the bride who desires an elegant, timeless and sophisticated look on her wedding day. Soft flowers with high petal counts like roses and ranunculus scream romance, while a bouquet composed of blooms with stronger lines and edges such as orchids or calla lilies are a great choice for the more contemporary bride. Adding bits of peach, champagne or blush can give the bouquet more dimension and texture, and often conveys a vintage undertone.

Here’s a collection of JBW brides who have chosen to go with a classic white bouquet on their wedding day!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Danijela + Zoran

Danijela + Zoran were married on a perfect fall day.  The leaves were a beautiful golden yellow and the sun was shining with blue skies.

Both from Serbian heritage, they wanted a timeless, elegant wedding that included some of their shared cultural traditions. After a traditional ceremony at Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral of St. John, guests made their way to Chateau Lacombe hotel in downtown Edmonton, where the ballroom sparkled with champagne and gold accents against a neutral ivory and taupe palette.
