Alyshea + Al-Karim (Part 1): Mehndi Party at Fairmont Hotel Macdonald

Alyshea and Al-Karim celebrated their union with multiple events over a weekend in Edmonton – a destination they chose because of the recently opened Aga Khan Garden at the University of Alberta Botanic Garden.

This wedding weekend was such a delight to plan and design (and there are so many incredible details to share!) that we’re breaking it into three blog posts:

  • Part 1 – The Mehndi Party at Fairmont Hotel Macdonald
  • Part 2 – The Wedding Ceremony at Aga Khan Garden
  • Part 3 – The Gala Reception at JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District

The festivities kicked off with a Bollywood Chic Mehndi party at Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. Guests enjoyed a custom ‘Flavours of India’ menu and could visit a draped Mehndi tent to have professional henna artists adorn their hands with beautiful designs.

The event featured dance performances, traditional Ismaili ceremonies and Vancouver’s Juno-nominated DJ A-SLAM. Stay tuned for Parts 2 and 3 coming soon…

This wedding is not only featured on Wedluxe, but it was also honoured as a finalist for Best Wedding over $150,000 at the 2020 Canadian Event Awards!

Fairmont Hotel Macdonald Wedding Coordinator: Irene + Geoffrey

Irene and Geoffrey’s fall wedding was nothing short of a fairytale! A horse-drawn carriage reminiscent of Cinderella was waiting for the newlyweds following their traditional Catholic ceremony at St. Joseph’s Basilica in downtown Edmonton.

Their vibrant reception at Fairmont Hotel Macdonald featured drummers, traditional African dances, indoor fireworks and a magical first dance in the “clouds.” The day’s events certainly kept us on our toes, and we were honoured to be a part of Irene and Geoffrey’s love story!

Whitewood Barn Edmonton Wedding Planner: Danielle + Jason

Set in the charming Alberta countryside, Danielle and Jason’s wedding was held on a warm summer day at The Whitewood Barn just outside of Edmonton.

After a ‘first look’ and taking photos with their wedding party, they exchanged rings and vows in a quaint clearing of pine trees adorned with café lights and rustic wooden benches. Guitarist Jeff Ramsey serenaded guests while they sipped bubbly from a boxwood champagne wall, and enjoyed tasty hors d’oeuvres by Stir Catering. After dinner, guests danced the night away under string lights and country stars.

See more of this beautiful, rustic wedding featured on the Blush Magazine blog!

Edmonton Wedding Coordinator: Jocelynn + Sam

Jocelynn and Sam wanted a carefree wedding day they could spend creating memories with their loved ones. Family is very important to them, which was clear with their choice to include all their siblings, nieces and nephews in the wedding party.

After sharing a ‘first look’ and an afternoon of photos in Edmonton’s River Valley and at Woodwork restaurant, Jocelynn and Sam made their way to The Westin Edmonton. Their late afternoon ceremony was beautifully personalized by Barbara of Threshold Ceremonies, and was set under a handcrafted arbour lovingly made by Jocelynn’s father.

Guests joined the newlyweds for cocktails and refreshments before sitting down for a delicious meal and heartfelt toasts. The ballroom was simple and elegant with pops of blue, silver and greenery amidst an all-white canvas. Talent Productions provided the soundtrack for the evening and everyone danced the night away.

Sharon Litchfield never ceases to amaze with her ability to produce breathtaking images (though her subject matter wasn’t exactly difficult to shoot)!
