Edmonton Wedding Planner: Leslie + Warren
I’m very excited to finally share this beautiful June wedding with you! We’ve been keeping it under wraps until it made its debut in the Spring/Summer 2013 issue of Blush Magazine:
Leslie is one of the sweetest brides I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, and to top it off she’s supermodel gorgeous! When I first met Leslie to chat about her wedding vision, romance was a key theme. After seeing her and Warren together it all made sense – the love that these two share is truly special.
The day started off early with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony at Warren’s parents’ house, followed by a Catholic ceremony at St. Joseph’s Basilica. The reception took place in Manning Hall at the Art Gallery of Alberta where ‘Modern Romance’ came to life. The walls were draped in soft ivory voile and lit in a lavender glow. Black chiavari chairs provided a modern contrast to ivory satin tablecloths, while wheatgrass and phalaenopsis orchid centrepieces added a fresh punch of life to the room.
Guests were treated to a lively Lion Dance performance followed by a delicious dinner courtesy of Zinc Catering.

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Tracy + Troy
When I first started working with Tracy + Troy they weren’t exactly sure what they wanted for their wedding, but they knew it had to be very unique. As plans developed, we decided to break tradition and throw a chic cocktail party reception in Shaw Conference Centre’s gorgeous Riverview Room.
Following a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Devonian Botanic Gardens, Tracy + Troy’s guests were greeted at the reception with champagne, live music and delicious hors d’oeuvres. In lieu of standard wedding favours, guests were given portraits of themselves drawn live by two talented caricature artists – Gerry Rasmussen and Laurél Hawkswell. This was a big hit!
The stunning photos below were taken by Sam and Natasha of Sam Ng Photography – they are always so wonderful to work with! Enjoy this look at Tracy + Troy’s stylish day:
Tracy purchased her gorgeous gown from Novelle Bridal Shop.
I know…stunning shoes!
…but Troy would not be outdone!
Terry McDade played the harp beautifully at the ceremony.
All flowers – including these awesome pomander balls – were created by La Piazza Dasee.
As a tribute to her Scottish heritage, Tracy was piped down the aisle by a family friend and escorted by her father who wore a traditional kilt.
Tracy and her beautiful bridesmaids carried feather parasols that came in handy on this hot, sunny day.
A champagne ice sculpture allowed guests to keep their glasses filled all night.
Guests took their caricature drawings home in tubes that Tracy wrapped in black and white patterned paper.
Instead of a head table, we setup a V.I.P. lounge area for the bridal party to visit with guests.
Uber-modern lampshade centrepieces worked perfectly with the room and vibe of the party.
Tracy, Troy: it was an absolute pleasure working with you to design your urban chic wedding. All the very best to you both as you begin this new chapter in your lives!
