Fall Jasper WeddingAmanda + Neil: Fall Jasper Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on October 18, 2017

Ice and fire seem to be a motif running through Amanda and Neil’s relationship; the pair met at a friend’s bonfire party, then years later walked down the aisle together on a snowy October day in Jasper. Neil even made Amanda play Hot/Cold on Christmas morning to find her gift hidden in the tree—a diamond engagement ring and her groom-to-be on one knee.

The Big Day

The decision to get married in Jasper was easy for Amanda and Neil.  The park has long been their favourite getaway place to explore the great outdoors by foot or canoe, or even to indulge at the town’s restaurants and spas. Choosing a venue was more difficult as both the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge and Pyramid Lake Resort boast extraordinary views and cozy, rustic atmospheres. Instead of choosing between the two venues they decided to split the ceremony and reception between them to get the best of both.

Favourite Moments

As much as they love Jasper in all it’s beauty, it’s clear that Amanda and Neil cherish their family above all else. Amanda’s favourite moment was walking down the aisle with her dad; “he said some of the sweetest things I’ll never forget,” she says. Neil will always remember watching their daughter come down the aisle and giving him a kiss before sitting with her grandmother.

Newlywed Advice

“Stay calm; it all really does come together in the end. There are bound to be things that don’t end up the way you had envisioned, but in the grand scheme of things they always turn out to be so minor you don’t even remember.”

Looking Forward to Most Now Being Married

They now look forward to growing their family even more.

Classic Luxe WeddingMelanie + Terry: Classic Luxe Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on October 10, 2017

Classic. Timeless. Elegant. These three words describe everything about Melanie and Terry’s September wedding, from the proposal to their honeymoon.

The pair met through Melanie’s uncle, who was coincidentally Terry’s neighbour and good friend.

The Proposal

While celebrating Melanie’s birthday at Hardware Grill, Terry got down on one knee and surprised her with a custom ring made in Italy.

The Big Day

Melanie and Terry chose the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald not only for its stunning rooms, but also for the quality of food and service. They dressed the Wedgwood Room in soft shades of white, blush and lavender for the ceremony, and exchanged rings under a lush floral canopy. For the reception they added dramatic pops of berry, pink, purple and green into the floral décor and drenched the tables in gold and champagne tones for a luxe garden vibe. Melanie changed out of her exquisite lace gown into a light and whimsical dress to dance the night away. A live band and DJ alternated sets on separate stages to keep the party going.

Favourite Moments

Melanie’s favourite moment was seeing Terry and all of their family and close friends while walking down the aisle, while Terry’s was landing in Turks and Caicos to have his wife all to himself for two weeks.

Lake Louise WeddingKatrina + Mike: Lake Louise Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on October 3, 2017

Mike first set eyes on Katrina at his sister’s med school graduation when his brother-in-law pointed her out and said, “There is your future wife.” It turned out that the joke was more of a prophecy, as they started dating a few weeks later. Katrina knew Mike would be her future husband by their second date when she heard his impressive vocals at a local piano bar.

The Big Day

Since Mike proposed to Katrina at the top of a mountain in Canmore, they knew they wanted to have a mountain wedding but needed a venue that could accommodate 130 guests. They were absolutely floored when they stepped into the Victoria Ballroom at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. “The views of Lake Louise were breathtaking and the service was impeccable throughout the entire wedding weekend,” says Katrina.
Their two-month-old puppy, Kona, walked down the aisle as a guest-of-honour then fell asleep at the groomsmen’s feet while Katrina and Mike said their vows.

Favourite Moments

During cocktail hour their planners surprised them with a private viewing of the ballroom; they danced to their favourite music and goofed around in the photo booth. Mike treasures those moments most, while Katrina says the best part was reminiscing about their perfect day while hiking the West Coast Trail the week after.

The next adventure for Mike and Katrina is parenthood! They’re expecting their first baby in July.

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on September 6, 2017

With fall around the corner, we thought it would be a great time to share this Moroccan Vintage inspired wedding shoot. The shoot was held at Studio96, a new downtown venue space in Edmonton. Studio96 was formerly a church and was transformed into what it is today: a magical and inspiring venue. A group of local vendors worked together to create this enchanting shoot.
