When we started planning Nicole + Kris’ wedding, we were ALL very excited. Backstory: Nicole + I have known each other f o r e v e r – we became besties in elementary (lucky me!) and I actually coordinated her little sister’s wedding and her older sister has done photos for me countless times. So imagine the HONOR I felt when she and Kris asked ME to help plan their dream wedding.
They had a vision and everything was going swimmingly until the coronavirus had the nerve to take over the world and ruin millions of people’s wedding day plans. It MUST be noted, at the positivity, Nicole + Kris had shown throughout it all; beyond inspiring and so admired. They were willing to wait until THE WEEK OF to decide if they were postponing, going ahead, or pivoting. (Now remember, back in June, here in Edmonton, we were still in Phase 1; no gathering over 15 people were permitted.
Nicole + Kris always envisioned a small, intimate wedding of 22 people. They wanted to share their day with their close friends and immediate family. We immediately went into a backup plan of having a ceremony guest list and a reception guest list, if Phase 2 didn’t happen. We had some amazing vendors on our team, who were able to work with us and ensure ASH guidelines we’re met.
Phase 2 began June 12, 2020, which gave us the green light to go ahead with the original plan of 22 people, under one roof and made Nicole + Kris’ wedding dreams come true.
