Whitewood Barn Edmonton Wedding Planner: Danielle + Jason

Set in the charming Alberta countryside, Danielle and Jason’s wedding was held on a warm summer day at The Whitewood Barn just outside of Edmonton.

After a ‘first look’ and taking photos with their wedding party, they exchanged rings and vows in a quaint clearing of pine trees adorned with café lights and rustic wooden benches. Guitarist Jeff Ramsey serenaded guests while they sipped bubbly from a boxwood champagne wall, and enjoyed tasty hors d’oeuvres by Stir Catering. After dinner, guests danced the night away under string lights and country stars.

Banff Wedding Planner: Kelsey + Greg

Dancing the night away under the stars – this was Kelsey and Greg’s vision they shared when we first started working together to plan their dream wedding in Banff, Alberta. Tented weddings aren’t the norm in the Canadian Rockies, but we were up for the challenge, and Whyte Museum Grounds on the banks of the Bow River provided the perfect setting for this outdoor soirée.

The beautiful design, complex logistics and skillful onsite execution of Kelsey and Greg’s wedding earned it the honour of Best Wedding at the 2019 Edmonton Event Awards!  It’s also featured in the Spring / Summer 2020 issue of Rocky Mountain Bride Canada

Watching Kelsey and Greg together on their wedding day – completely swept up in joy and radiating love from their family and friends – was a perfect reminder why we’re so lucky to play a role in these milestone celebrations.

Jasper Wedding Coordinator: Kailey + Dave

Kailey + Dave were the epitome of elegance on their September wedding day at The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. Not a bit phased by Mother Nature’s plans for rain and forest fire smoke, they focused on what matters most about a wedding: soaking in every moment of love from their family and friends.

Kailey and her mother spent months planning so many beautiful details for the day, and sourcing décor from as far as the South of France where Kailey spent time visiting Dave the year leading up to the wedding.

The colour scheme reflected natural shades found in the Canadian Rockies, including hues of greys and dusty blues. Wooden harvest tables and vineyard chairs retained just the right amount of rustic flair, while gold geometric and marble accents added modern elements to the design.

Following a romantic ceremony set in front of an impressive stone fireplace in the Main Lodge, the couple took off for photos in Kailey’s father’s Triumph TR6 convertible! The night ended with the ultimate comfort food inspired by the newlyweds’ initials: deluxe “KD” mac ‘n’ cheese.

Clearly we aren’t the only ones who were wowed by this wedding. Kailey + Dave’s big day was featured in two amazing Canadian magazines: the Fall/Winter 2018 issues of Weddingbells Magazine and Blush Magazine. Here’s a sampling of the gorgeous images by Nicole Ashley Photography and a captivating video by Juan and Angie.

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!?

prom dress online

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.

Lake Louise Wedding Planner: Kaylee + Zach

Surrounded with snow-capped mountains and set on an expansive lake, The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is truly a winter wonderland. Family and friends from 26 states and 3 provinces travelled to Lake Louise to celebrate Kaylee and Zach’s wedding. As most guests had never been to Canada let alone the majestic Rocky Mountains, the bride and groom wanted to showcase the natural beauty of the region while providing their loved ones with a quintessential Canadian winter experience.

  • Upon arrival guests received welcome packages in their hotel room which included Canadian scarves or mittens from Hudson Bay Company.
  • On Thursday evening, a VIP rehearsal dinner for the bridal party and close family was held at the cozy Deer Lodge.
  • Friday morning Zach and his attendants hosted an ice hockey game on Lake Louise.
  • Later that evening all guests attended an outdoor welcome party complete with bonfires, a hot chocolate bar and s’mores.
  • The wedding festivities were held on Saturday, beginning with the ceremony in the beautiful Victoria Ballroom.
  • After exchanging vows, the newlyweds took photos while all 180 guests departed on horse-drawn sleigh rides around the lake.
  • In the early evening, everyone returned to the ballroom which had been transformed for the reception.
  • An after party in Alpine Social was held following the reception to extend the festivities into the early morning!

As you can see, this was quite the wedding! We are honoured that it was chosen to be featured on the WedLuxe blog, and was the recipient of two wedding industry awards:

Victoria Wedding Planner: Nikki + David

Blush Magazine Edmonton

Nikki + David’s wedding was held at Hatley Castle in Victoria, B.C., which is where many famous movies and TV shows have been filmed, including X-Men and Deadpool. The property and gardens are absolutely stunning – it was truly a fairytale setting.

This wedding was full of unique and personal details stemming from our very creative Bride. One big “first” for us was the feline flower girl. “Catsie” travelled all the way from Edmonton to Victoria to star as Nikki + Dav’s flower girl. Not only did she wear a dress, but she was pushed down the aisle by the Ring Bearer in a flower-covered pram!

After the ceremony guests enjoyed refreshments and were able to walk around and take in the gardens. There were tours of the castle offered, lawn games, and a cocktail reception on the terrace complete with a live jazz band, vintage lounge seating and a cigar bar.

Nikki designed all the stationery herself, including fan programs for the ceremony and escort cards hung from mini bottles of La Marca Prosecco which doubled as guest favours. A 5-tier cheese wheel cake adorned with grapes and figs took the place of a traditional wedding cake.

Featured in the current issue of Blush Magazine, this unique Victoria destination wedding is not to be missed!

Destination I Do: Scottsdale, Arizona

While we’re based in Edmonton, Alberta, we’ve had the pleasure of planning and designing weddings in many beautiful destinations – both in Canada and abroad! This series showcases some of our favourite locations including information for couples considering a wedding away from home.

+  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +

Destination ‘I Do’ Wedding Series: Scottsdale, Arizona

Arizona is a popular vacation and winter home destination for many Albertans – why not celebrate your wedding in the warm, dry heat with spectacular sunsets and stunning desert backdrops?!

Why Scottsdale?

  • Fly direct to Phoenix Sky Harbour International Airport from both Edmonton and Calgary.
  • Rain is rarely a concern, and temperatures are warm year round.
  • The venue options are plentiful. Choose from luxury resorts, golf & country clubs, outdoor gardens and more.
  • Your guests won’t run out of things to do – Scottsdale boasts more spas per capita than any other city in the USA, and there are over 200 golf courses in the area. The city also has a vibrant nightlife scene and desert hiking via Camelback Mountain or Pinnacle Peak Park.

Our Canadian summers are always so busy as people try to pack in trips to the lake, yard work, camping and ALL the weddings. We love the idea of getting married in a warm destination during shoulder season months like October, November, March and April. Your guests will love it too, as they’ll get to escape the cold winter!

Vernon Wedding Planner: Christie + Nav

After visiting Sparkling Hill Resort shortly after it opened, I knew we had to do a wedding there – and when Christie + Nav came to us wanting a B.C. destination wedding, it was the perfect fit.

One of the most easy-going couples we’ve met, Christie + Nav wanted their wedding weekend to be stress-free so they could relax and enjoy celebrating with their most cherished family and friends. The wedding day was overcast but luckily the rain held off so we were able to take advantage of the stunning terrace overlooking Okanagan Lake. The sky was dramatic and beautiful, making for some amazing photos during the ceremony.

Tailored Fit Films put together this beautiful ‘Same Day Edit’ film which was played at the reception, and Kevin Trowbridge did such an incredible job capturing the day. Enjoy!
