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: Charlotte + Frantz, Part 2

After saying ‘I Do’ in an intimate ceremony at The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald, Charlotte + Frantz wanted to celebrate their marriage by throwing an incredible party for their friends and families. The reception was held six months later at the modern Art Gallery of Alberta

Long rectangle tables flanked either side of the reception space, while square tables lined the centre of the room. Layers of geometric patterns on the linens, table runners and chargers enhanced a monochromatic palette of whites and soft greys. Homogenous groupings of all-white florals including callas, hydrangea, peonies and garden roses were angled for a modern look. Luxurious letterpress stationery featured the couple’s contemporary monogram, which was also displayed on the DJ booth and custom Violet Chocolate Co. favours.

A dessert bar featured Charlotte + Frantz’s favourite sweets, including Nanaimo bars and locally owned Moonshine doughnuts. Fat Franks hot dog truck served delicious late night eats – a perfect way to fuel up for more dancing!

Before perusing the gorgeous photos by Gabe McClintock, you MUST watch this incredible video by Capture the Moment Media based in Vancouver. They filmed both the December ceremony and June reception – it’s such a wonderful depiction of Charlotte + Frantz’s love story.

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Charlotte + Frantz, Part 1

Charlotte + Frantz were married in an intimate ceremony at The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. They wanted to exchange vows in front of their immediate families, sharing the sacred moment with their most important supporters. They recited their own vows, which were so beautiful and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. I feel so honoured to have shared in this special moment with them.

Months later, they would celebrate with an ultra-modern reception at the Art Gallery of Alberta – more to come in Part 2!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Julie + Kyle

Blush Magazine Fall Winter 2015These two high school sweethearts are truly made for one another. Julie lights up a room when she enters – she’s a bundle of energy and positivity, always wearing a huge smile on her face. Kyle is a calming presence – very kind and patient, but still knows how to let loose and have fun. It was such a pleasure working with this duo to bring their special day to life!

After a traditional Catholic ceremony at St. Theresa’s Roman Catholic Parish, Julie + Kyle’s guests made their way to Fort Edmonton Park where the Hangar was staged for the perfect rustic, summer soirée. The big open space allowed kids to run free, while the summer breeze blew in to cool guests down on a warm September day.

Lush floral garlands in warm tones of peach, coral, yellow and blush were swagged down the aisle and hung behind the head table. Antlers, succulents and wooden logs brought the outdoors in, enhancing the organic, natural ambiance of the setting. {More on the inspiration behind this wedding design here!}

We surrounded a large wooden dance floor with cocktail tables, benches and tree stump stools to keep everyone engaged with the party. Once the dance was underway, La Poutine food truck pulled up just outside the Hangar doors to serve the perfect Canadiana late night snack!

Can’t get enough? See more of this lovely day in the current issue of Blush Magazine and on the Katch Studios blog. Enjoy!

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!

Hair Care Tips Before the Big Day

Happy Monday!

Patricia J. Hair Designer is back with one final post to help you with your bridal hairstyle. Whether you’re newly engaged or in the final stages of planning, read on for Patricia’s advice on how to treat your tresses right leading up to the big day.

Months Before…Planning and Getting on Track

  • Edmonton Wedding Hair StylistAsk your hairstylist if they do special occasion hair. It is equally important to find out if they are familiar with (and comfortable creating) the style you want. If they aren’t, get them to recommend another stylist.
  • Feel like you in your wedding do’! Don’t go overboard! You should be relaxed and your hairstyle should reflect your style as well as your personality (keeping in mind any suggestions your stylist has).
  • Be organized and prebook your wedding day appointment so that you can ensure you get the right starting time and enough time with your stylist. It is always better to have more time than to be rushed – stress free zone is best!
  • Please book a trial! It is great to see the style you want on yourself. Take pictures from all angles so you can see how the style is falling, and determine whether you would like to make any changes. The trial is also a great way to test for any product sensitivities or allergies.
  • It isn’t necessary to buy a veil or hair accessories until you know what hairstyle you want.
  • Do not decide on a major corrective colour change unless you and your stylist have talked about it and are both aware of what you’re getting into.
  • If length is ideal for your hairstyle, make sure you keep going in for regular trims. Split ends will keep on splitting and result in breakage. Healthy hair is what we want!
  • If you plan on getting extensions for the wedding make sure your stylist is involved and that the colour matches. It is important to get the extensions properly cut to blend with your own natural style.
  • Get on a good shampoo and rinse if you aren’t already using one, so that your hair is getting the proper moisture/ treatment it needs to be in mint condition. The Kevin.Murphy brand of products are one of my favourite lines and are great for everyday use.

Weeks Before…Time for Touch-Ups

  • Your last colour and trim can be scheduled 2-3 weeks before the wedding date. This allows the style to soften up a bit and leaves room for unexpected mishaps.
  • A treatment to boost moisture and shine goes along great with the touchups. I recommend the L’oreal Professional PowerDose or Fiberceutic treatment (in-salon treatments). They leave the hair hydrated and feeling great without weighing it down.

Day Before…Relax and Prep

  • Edmonton Wedding Hair StylistDepending on the style you want, some hairstylists might suggest to wash your hair the day of your wedding but most will ask you to wash your hair 24 hours prior. Freshly cleaned hair can be too soft and fluffy and is harder to work with.
  • I tell all my clients to do what is called a Maxi.Wash by Kevin.Murphy. It is a clarifying shampoo that removes environmental and product buildup off the hair – and it’s colour safe! Maxi.Wash leaves the hair incredibly shiny for your big day.
  • The Maxi.Wash is like your primer. Follow it up with your everyday shampoo and rinse.
  • Deep conditioning masks should be avoided the day before the wedding as they are usually quite rich and can weigh down the hair. (Save them for a little TLC after the big day!)

+  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +

Some great advice! Brides, if you don’t already have a hairstylist for your wedding (or for everyday), be sure to contact Patricia J. Hair Designer!

Bridal Hairstyle Inspiration (Part 3)

The final post in our bridal hairstyle inspiration series with Patricia J. Hair Designer: chic + relaxed weddings. Be sure to check out Patricia’s take on vintage bridal hairstyles and fairy tale bridal hairstyles.

+  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +

For the chic and relaxed wedding, simple is best. Top knots and sleek lower buns are classic and comfortable. For a more modern look, textured ponytails or soft undone styles are perfect. Keeping hair accessories to a minimal is key with these looks.

Bridal Hairstyle Inspiration (Part 2)

This week we’re getting the low down on locks with Patricia J. Hair Designer. On Monday we looked at vintage bridal hairstyles – today’s post is for the brides who dream of being a princess on their wedding day!

+  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +

Fairy tale weddings are all about romance, so when it comes to your bridal hairstyle you want to think soft, flowing and pretty. A low chignon with some hairpins adds a bit of sparkle and is an elegant option for those who want their hair up. Loose curls look stunning on a bride wearing a veil.  A lace Mantilla veil adds extra romance.
