Join me, the Edmonton Business Association, and Movember Canada at Central Social Hall on November 28th, from 5:00-9:00pm This is my co-planner, Shelley Roslund's 4th Movember Mixer in partnership with the Edmonton Business Association, after taking a 5-year hiatus. We decided to get back

Last month I finished my last wedding of 2018! Now this on its own is a huge, personal, accomplishment for me. I went from thinking I would do a few friends-of-friends weddings, to booking SEVEN weddings in FIVE months.

Kassie inquired over facebook and we did all of our communication via email. I didn’t actually meet her, or Oren, until the actual wedding day! I’m grateful that I was trusted to ensure they were well taken care of.

The highlight of my day was watching their ceremony; I’ve always watched the Bride (I typically am stationed on that side) but this time I got to watch the grooms’ expression. Kassie definitely found her soulmate; the way Oren looked at her, melted my heart, they are meant for each other. Kassie’s sister was the officiant which made the ceremony a bit more personal and special.

They had their ceremony and reception out of the Mirage Banquet Hall A. this was my first time at this venue and I was blown away with what it looked like inside. Absolutely gorgeous. The catering was delicious. The service staff was friendly. The bartenders were so full of personality.

My favorite touch of the reception; Kassie + Oren’s memorial table. Instead of having one off to the side, they requested an empty dinner table. Gold sequenced tablecloth, gold charger plates and photos on each of the settings, of those they wanted to remember. It was such a nice touch. I watched as family and friends walked around the table and honored those no longer with them.

Instead of a traditional cake, they opted for donuts. Firstly, my weakness just happens to be a delicious glazed donut. Secondly, they were from the Italian Bakery. My Italian roots were screaming with excitement.

They also nailed the candy bar. I’m not sure who enjoyed it more, the kids or the adults. Sour candy, fortune cookies, mini chocolate bars, and candy caramels.

An interactive touch was instead of a tradition guestbook, they had guests write them a note and utilize the photobooth! It made it fun for the guests.

I met Brittany & Richard through a good friend of mine, a few years ago. These two are honestly some of the most good-hearted, hilarious people I've ever met. They are [both] witty, sarcastic and loveable.

They chose a late afternoon ceremony, outdoors, with 175 of their friends and family. Luckily, the rain held off until the reception began. [Have you ever heard a thunderstorm under a party tent? because I hadn't until then]

They went very untraditional with dinner [which is my favorite] and had Nitiza's Pizza in Sherwood Park cater, it was delicious, and surprisingly hot when served. Nitiza's staff were friendly and very organized, which made my part in dinner, a lot easier.

Brittany + Richard chose their siblings to MC their wedding and it was a great choice! Richards sister definitely knew how to keep it light and funny.

This will go down as one of the best parties I've  I have never seen so many people on one dance floor, & NOBODY left! It was jammed packed the entire night. I'm not sure how they had that much energy!

Their rustic-chic theme was simple, gorgeous and elegant. Plus Brittany pretty much DIY'd the entire wedding! Look at this gorgeous arch (that's some serious talent)!

Oh. The best part of the wedding? 11:30 late lunch catered by McDonalds + cheeseburgers. Can you say amazing or what?
