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: 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.

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Beena + Craig

Avenue Edmonton Wedding

Beena + Craig’s wedding last summer was a fusion of two diverse, vibrant cultures: East Indian and Guyanese. Living apart to pursue their careers, they opted for a longer engagement in order to pace out the wedding planning decisions. We made the most of our emails, calls and whirlwind planning weekends to arrange their festive 400-guest celebration at All Saints Anglican Cathedral and Meridian Banquets.

You can read all about this gorgeous wedding in Avenue Edmonton Magazine’s January 2014 issue. JDS Photography did a fabulous job (as usual) capturing the special moments throughout the day – enjoy a sampling of images below!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Sabrina + Fil

Sabrina + Fil’s July wedding day began with a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony in honour of Sabrina’s heritage. Then the wedding party travelled to The Westin Edmonton, where both the wedding ceremony and reception were held. Sabrina was perfectly styled in Vera Wang, Jimmy Choo and Elsa Corsi jewelry. Both her parents walked her down the aisle to her handsome groom, and the couple exchanged vows in front of the family and friends that would support them throughout their marriage.

The reception started with a bang as the traditional Lion Dance was performed before guests indulged in a delicious 4-course meal. Sabrina put a lot of effort into selecting the perfect sweets for the candy table and her hard work paid off – the table was a huge hit (and that’s an understatement)!

I love the thought and creativity Sabrina + Fil put into their photo session with Sharon Litchfield. They used confetti and sparklers as props and the images turned out amazing, as is the case whenever you have Sharon behind the lens. Enjoy a selection of our favourites below!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Zahra + Ali

We had the pleasure of working with Zahra + Ali to design and coordinate their festive wedding weekend in June. On Friday, special celebrations were hosted for both the bride and groom. Ali’s side hosted their party at Khazana, while Zahra’s family and friends attended a vibrant event at Edmonton Hotel & Convention Centre with Indian and Moroccan inspired décor. Both parties were filled with amazing food, music and of course – dancing!

The next day, Zahra + Ali shared a ‘first look’ before their marriage ceremony at Ismaili Jamatkhana & Centre. After making it official the couple spent some time taking photos with their stylish wedding party before heading to the reception at Shaw Conference Centre’s Hall D. For this event, we opted for a sleek modern design with a palette of pewter, white and pops of fuchsia and purple. The highlight of the evening was a surprise all-male Bollywood dance performance by some of Zahra + Ali’s family and friends – you should have seen these guys move!

Mark Eleven Photography didn’t miss a moment of the festivities – enjoy a sampling of these gorgeous images!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Theresa + Jake

Style Me Pretty CanadaWe had the pleasure of working with Theresa + Jake for over two years to plan their 11.11.11 wedding. Living in the remote town of Norman Wells, Northwest Territories, they chose to have a destination wedding in Edmonton to create a memorable weekend for all their guests (for some, it would be their first trip out of the North)!

Matrix Hotel was the perfect setting for this modern, edgy wedding. Theresa wore a stunning Vera Wang gown accessorized with a black sash and sparkling Christian Louboutin pumps. Jake was dashingly handsome in black on black. Together they looked like they could be on the cover of a magazine!

The wedding design was inspired by its auspicious date, as the three elevens visually create clean, modern lines. Paired with a dramatic colour palette of black, pewter and dark purple, this pattern was carried throughout many elements of the wedding. To incorporate their northern culture, Theresa and Jake gave guests miniature Mukluk ornaments as favours. These were handmade by Theresa’s aunts – a loving, personal touch!

Alicia Price is the talented photographer behind these gorgeous images that tell the story of Theresa + Jake’s wedding day. We were honoured that this wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty Canada!

{Special thanks to Jessica for assisting!}

The stationery suite reflected Theresa + Jake’s wedding style perfectly and helped tie everything together. It was expertly designed by Jenelle at Pinkpolka.

The reception decor included black chiavari chairs, pewter pintuck linens and black lacquer charger plates finished with black satin napkins. This unconventional palette was further accented with dramatic fuchsia and purple uplighting. Ultra-modern centrepieces by La Piazza Dasee featured a cluster of three arrangements and included purple callas, dendrobium orchids and white hydrangea.
