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!

Inspiration to Reality: Julie + Kyle

A lot goes into the wedding design process at JBW. We begin by determining a bride and groom’s wedding style – the look they envision, the atmosphere they want their event to evoke, the level of formality. We then create visual inspiration boards and detailed design plans. Once we’re all on the same page, we execute, securing rental and décor items, collaborating with a florist to design centrepieces and bouquets, and working with a stationer to create the couple’s invitations and stationery to perfectly reflect their wedding style.

We’re excited to share some of our 2014 weddings along with the design boards behind them so you can get a glimpse at how we take inspiration and make it reality!

Julie + Kyle wanted their rustic, summer wedding to reflect her carefree spirit and Kyle’s love of the outdoors. We designed the soirée around a soft, muted palette of creams and taupes with whimsical touches of mint and peach. Woodland accents including antlers and birch stumps brought the outdoors in to the Hangar at Fort Edmonton Park.

This delightful Edmonton wedding was also recently published in Blush Magazine (available for purchase online or at Chapters / Indigo)!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Alexis + Tom

Blush Magazine Edmonton

Chock full of personal details and unique touches, it’s no surprise that Alexis + Tom’s charming summer wedding was featured in the latest issue of Blush Magazine.

The entire celebration was held at Christ Church – a beautiful 1920s church in the heart of downtown Edmonton that looks like it belongs in Europe! An intimate late afternoon ceremony flowed right into an outdoor cocktail hour complete with delicious appetizers, lawn games and an assortment of refreshing drinks such as cucumber water and strawberry lemonade. 

At the reception guests were treated to a decadent family style dinner catered by Culina and an illustrious dessert table full of cakes and pies made with love by family members.

Her keen eye and love for bicycles made Blake Loates the perfect fit to photograph this wedding! Enjoy a glimpse of Alexis + Tom’s big day below.

Her unique dress design allows you to achieve a sophisticated, consistent look suited to various body types – plus, the dress is so versatile your ‘maids can wear it again (really)!

The Twobirds dress is offered in three collections (classic, rosette and two-toned) and comes in a variety of styles, colours and lengths. And the best part – no alterations required!

Edmonton Wedding Day Coordinator: Danielle + Chris (Part 2)

Before reading this post, check out Part 1 to see the state of Danielle + Chris’ reception venue just 27 days before their wedding! Although it was tight, the brand new banquet facility built at La Cité Francophone was finished just in time to host this stunning inaugural event inside its freshly painted walls.

Danielle + Chris met back in elementary school and reconnected later in life. Turns out romance was in the cards and they haven’t looked back. In the slideshow there was even a class photo of them as little kids – it was adorable!

Danielle’s wedding vision was a romantic, whimsical and – most importantly – a pink reception! Some of her inspiration came from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and between the twinkly lights, lush centrepieces and dainty hanging chandeliers, I think old Will would have been proud!

Ashley and Andrew – the talented duo behind Paperheart Photography – did such a wonderful job with the photos! They are relatively new to the wedding industry and I am super impressed with their talent – be sure to check them out! Here’s a look at some of the gorgeous shots from Danielle + Chris’ day:

Danielle’s gown was so romantic and feminine – it suited her perfectly!

Might be the most stunning bouquet I’ve ever seen – courtesy of the uber-talented team at La Piazza Dasee.

Danielle looked A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

All the fabulous wedding stationary was designed by Jenelle at PinkPolka Wedding Design. It went so perfectly with the theme! The above photo is of the wedding programs at the church, and there is more beautiful reception stationary to come…

The new Mr. & Mrs. leaving St. Joachim Catholic Church.

Gotta love the hot pink shoes!

Danielle + Chris put a lot of thought and work into making their candy table look absolutely fabulous – and boy was it a hit!

Danielle had her engagement ring custom made into a stunning wedding band with vintage flair.

And now for a look at the reception venue that was still under construction just a few weeks before the wedding…

Voila! These gorgeous centrepieces were designed by La Piazza Dasee, and the gold metal trees, crystal garlands and hanging votives were supplied by Elegant Touches. Danielle’s father worked his handy-magic to hang five chandeliers over the head table. Special thanks to Gayeung for assisting me throughout the day!

The table names were of famous couples, and guests had to guess which movie or T.V. show the couple was from before they could eat. Any guesses on the above?

Danielle + Chris: It was an absolute pleasure to work with you on your wedding. I wish you a long and happy marriage – félicitations!
