Edmonton Wedding Coordinator: Jillian + Ryan

Two creative spirits, Jillian + Ryan ‘s wedding day was a perfect reflection of their personalities and talents. They shared a ‘first look’ at their beautifully appointed home that only a few months earlier had been featured in Avenue Magazine. An outdoor photo session with Nicole Ashley preceded their wedding ceremony and reception that were fittingly held at the Art Gallery of Alberta.

In collaboration with Cory Christopher, Jill + Ryan added organic yet modern décor elements to the AGA’s blank canvas. Ryan is a talented designer and made many of the creative pieces showcased at the wedding, including the wooden centrepieces and concrete votive candleholders on the tables.

The newlyweds surprised all their guests when they performed a duet as part of their thank-you speech. The song transitioned to the dance floor to kick off the party!

Having recently run into them at another family wedding we were fortunate to be a part of, it warmed my heart to see Jill + Ryan so happy and even more in love. Enjoy the photos below by Nicole Ashley, along with the incredible super 8mm highlight film by Arrow Films.

Makeup Artist, Stylist, Fashion Guru Extraordinaire. Loves travel, weddings & coffee. Passionate about life and living it to the fullest.

What drew you into the world of wedding coordination?

The joy of making one day special and dedicated to a couple and their love is a big part of what drew me into the world of wedding coordination. Bringing everything together for the couple and seeing them enjoy their day with guests makes me enjoy it even more!

Who or what inspires you?

From an interesting pattern, a previous era or beautiful flower – many different things inspire me. I like to pull my inspiration from many different aspects of life, always trying new things.

What is your favourite venue in Edmonton?

The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald would have to be my favourite venue in Edmonton. I love buildings that have a story and history. It’s a beautiful backdrop for any wedding! Plus it is very castle-like and who doesn’t want to feel like a princess on their wedding day?!

What is your favourite wedding moment?

One of my favorite wedding moments is during the speeches when the happy couple takes a moment to thank each other and to talk about how much they appreciate one another. It always gives me tears seeing them look so happy and in love.

Another moment I have come to really like is the new trend of the ‘first look’ before the ceremony! To capture the reaction of the bride and groom as they see each other on their wedding day for the first time is so magical.

What are your top 3 strengths?

  1. Personable-I love getting to know people!
  2. Attention to Detail- I love adding original and personable touches!
  3. Creative- I love trying new things, being imaginative and always having fun!   .

Who would you want to play you in a movie?

I would want Audrey Hepburn to play me in a movie. She was a fashion icon, humanitarian and great actress. I admire her humor, style and life.
