I was originally hired for Venue Management for the piece of mine their investment was being protected! After a few months of chatting + face-to-face meetings, they decided to up their package to Wedding Day Management.
They chose the gorgeous Greenland Garden Center for their ceremony with their reception hosted at The Matrix Hotel in downtown Edmonton. The Matrix has been one of my favorite venues this year; the location is central and the staff was wonderful to work with.
They also had the cutest, custom made sign that read "The Smiths"
Overall, Carmen + Zach knew how to throw a party and their friends + family never left the dance floor.
I was contacted by Jocelyn in early 2019 for a full day of coordination; my initial impression of Jocelyn was she was incredibly gorgeous with her bright red hair, and after getting to know her I realized her personality was just as vibrate, along with her sweet soul.
Jocelyn & Derek had their ceremony as the gorgeous Hasting Lake Gardens with about 120 of their friends and families. Then held the reception at The Mirage Banquet Center.
The love and support these two have surrounding them were inspiring; Jocelyn’s parents are such a positive influence, while Derek’s mom was so kind and a smoke show!
I was hired for Full Day Coordination, which included set-up of chargers plates, place cards, centerpieces, florals, candy bar, minor decor, the backdrop for the head table.
Mandy contacted me via my website in early January 2019, she knew exactly what she wanted [and I loved that]!
Mandy + Karsen chose The Sutton Place in downtown Edmonton to celebrate their special day, with 130 of their friends and families.
I must say The Sutton Place has the friendliest staff I have ever worked with - everyone from Front Desk to Security was incredibly helpful.
These two are genuine people and everyone I spoke too had such warm things to say about each of them; Karsen has an incredible sense of humor and the most impeccable timing, and Mandy is so patient, kind and was relaxed the entire time; this couple was fantastic to work with.
I was hired for the timing of the ceremony, centerpiece and dessert table set-up, along with reception coordination. Mandy + Karsen had some talented help with the seating chart, backdrop [which I am kicking myself for not getting a photo of] and the cupcake stands.
Last weekend I was hired to for a Full-Day of Coordination by Lianna + Dylan; I did centerpiece set-up, backdrop set-up, ceremony coordination, reception coordination, and teardown. This was the perfect way to allow their families to sit back and soak in the celebration!
Now I’ve known Lianna for 20ish years. Her older sister Nicole is one of my longest friends and we went to elementary school together. Her oldest sister Chelsey is a local photographer who did my 2019 branding photos!
Lianna + Dylan got married in front of 98 guests at The Country Lodge in Edmonton, Alberta. The venue is the perfect rustic feel, within the city.
These two were a dream to watch. Their Made of Honor said it perfectly “Dylan, when you look at Lianna you can’t help but smile.” and I witness that countless time throughout the evening. After 10 years together, that's incredible! I wish them a lifetime of happiness together and I'm so honored I watched Lianna become a wife to the love of her life!
Have you ever met someone who automatically had the ability to make everyone around them comfortable? That is Alysha. She has such a warm smile, genuine heart, and has a calm to her; she was so relaxed the entire day!
Alysha contacted me early 2019 for her and her fiancé Aaron, June 22nd wedding, and I was hired for the ceremony and reception coordination and timeline assistance [Wedding Day Management].
Their ceremony was held in the beautiful Hasting Lake Gardens, where I was in charge of filling seats [this where I move guests around for better photos] and playing ceremony music before, during, and after! Alysha and Aaron were very organized and had playlists ready to go. Hasting Lake Gardens have a sound system available, but you do need to put someone in charge of those timing points [arrival, walking down the aisle, grand entrance, the signing of the marriage certificate, and walking out] which is where I came in.
The reception was held at the Ardrossan Recreation Complex; I did a once over of the tables, they had set-up the night before, finished off centerpieces by lighting candles, and set up the dessert table.
During the reception, I worked with the MC’s to keep everything on schedule [their MC’s killed it], the timing of food and events. It’s so important to get those special photos in your day.
Alysha and Aaron’s friends and family were so friendly and enjoyable to be around! Alysha’s family-friend Barbara made the most amazing cherry tarts and she was the sweetest women. I loved seeing Alysha’s parents enjoying themselves and smiling the entire time.
Thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day! You two are going to nail this marriage thing.
