Miami Beach Wedding Planner: Brianna + Cameron

Brianna and Cameron’s friends and family travelled from Edmonton and all over North America for their destination wedding in the Miami South Beach area. Many made a vacation out of the trip, taking in the gorgeous beaches and enjoying the world-renowned nightlife and opulent restaurants. It was my first time there, and I have to say – I absolutely loved it! Besides the amazing weather, Miami offers the perfect balance between relaxation and fast-paced fun – there’s something for everyone.

The wedding events took place at The Tides South Beach – an Art Deco masterpiece on Ocean Drive designed by Kelley Wearstler. Guests were welcomed with a poolside cocktail party the day before the wedding. This was a great opportunity for everyone to meet and mingle while enjoying the Florida sun.

Brianna and Cam opted for an early evening ceremony, so they took their photos in the afternoon at the stunning Vizcaya Gardens and on the historic South Beach strip. Overlooking turquoise blue waters and a white sandy beach, they said ‘I Do’ on the rooftop terrace of the Tides Penthouse Suite. After a delicious dinner and some very heartfelt toasts, the celebrations continued with  authentic Cuban cigar rollers and lots of rooftop dancing!

The next morning everyone gathered to reminisce about the night’s events over brunch at the very fabulous Delano South Beach. Jessica Fern Facette did a great job (as always!) capturing Brianna and Cam’s laid-back, sophisticated style and the events of this incredible South Beach destination wedding!

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!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Sandy + Steve

Last week we shared the inspiration behind Sandy + Steve’s Enjoy Centre wedding design. As far as winter weddings go, this one is pretty spectacular!

Both from large families with strong cultural traditions, we worked with Sandy + Steve to fuse their East Indian and Croatian backgrounds to create a truly unique event experience.

  • A traditional East Indian Henna (Mehndi) party was held before the wedding.
  • A Croatian band played at the ceremony and throughout dinner.
  • Sandy wore a gorgeous ivory lace gown for the ceremony, while her bridesmaids wore traditional East Indian attire.
  • Customary Croatian shots of fine cognacs and grappa were served to guests upon arrival at the reception.
  • A Dhol drummer escorted the newlyweds into their reception for the grand entrance.
  • A mix of Western and Eastern cuisine was served which included family favourites from both sides.
  • DJ Pat from Premiere DJs by Urban Metropolis played a fusion of Indian dance music, Top 40, R&B and classic Croatian polkas!

Grab your favourite hot beverage and cozy up to enjoy some gorgeous eye candy captured by Jessica Fern Facette!

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:
