Vanity Fair Meets Old ManhattanSarah + Adam: Vanity Fair Meets Old Manhattan

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on February 16, 2017

Sarah and Adam met back in high school, though their relationship didn’t blossom until after graduation. Their engagement story is truly a holiday dream.

The Proposal

Their engagement story is truly a holiday dream. It was Christmas Eve and the pair were sitting in their living room beside their Christmas tree, the crackling fire and their big dog Walter. Adam had insisted they stay in instead of attending a holiday party, so they exchanged gifts per usual. “I had asked for Tiffany earrings that Christmas and Walter came around the corner with a little blue box tied to his collar,” remembers Sarah. After untying the box and opening it, Adam was beside her on one knee.

The Big Day

Adam and Sarah wanted a Vanity Fair meets Old Manhattan feel to their wedding. From deciding on the Fairmont Palliser as their venue to the chairs and the florals, their wedding planner Evelyn Clark captured it perfectly. After a year of planning, these newlyweds saw all of their dreams come true and felt it was their best day yet.

Favourite Moments

Choosing one favourite moment is the toughest job of all, but Sarah and Adam adored their afternoon champagne toast with their bridal party while they signed their marriage license.

Mountain Backdrop WeddingMegan + JP: Mountain Backdrop Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on January 12, 2017

For some women, it’s a guy’s smile or sense of humour that attracts them. For Megan, it was the breakdancing moves J.P busted out at a party that sealed the deal.

The Proposal

After a few years of dating, J.P surprised Megan with a weekend trip to Vancouver for her birthday. By this time Megan had given up all hopes of getting engaged, so she was completely shocked when J.P proposed during a walk along the Seawall.

The Big Day

The fun-loving couple wanted a venue in the mountains that would also deliver the most bang for their buck. They loved the cabin-style charm of Cornerstone Theatre in Canmore, and how it was neutral enough to work with any colour scheme. After sealing their vows with a kiss, they concluded their outdoor ceremony with a fist pump from Megan and a thumbs up from J.P. “I loved that we were able to share our personalities with everyone at that moment,” says J.P. The newlyweds enjoyed some quiet moments together during photos to reflect on the ceremony and share some laughs, then arrived at their reception on top of the limo to kick off the party.

Favourite Moments

Megan: “During photos we were taken to a location where the wedding parties stayed in the limo and it was just us with the photographer. Having that time to reflect on the ceremony, share our excitement, and have some laughs was amazing. Many people told us before the wedding that we should try to take a minute or two just be together and take in the day, this part of the photo shooting allowed us to have 15 or 20.”

John Paul: My favourite moment was seeing Megan walk down the aisle. She had the biggest smile on her face and I could tell how excited she was to be walking towards me. After our first kiss as husband and wife, and in our true style, we turned to our families, Megan pumped her fist and I gave a thumbs up. I loved that we were able to share our personalities with everyone at that moment.”

Newlywed Advice

‘Knowing what you want to do, what you can afford to do, and starting early made everything leading up to our wedding day go smoothly.”

Looking Forward to Most Now Being Married

“Given that we have been together for nearly eight years and lived together for five, we knew long before the wedding that we would be spending our lives together. At this point, we are looking forward to our honeymoon in spring 2017 then starting a family.”

New Year’s Eve Vermillion WeddingReanne + Ryan: NYE Vermillion Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on August 25, 2016

Reanne and Ryan first met through mutual friends at Laurier Lake, then reconnected several years later when Reanne commented on Ryan’s Facebook photo of his new snowmobile.

The Proposal

The couple eventually built a home at the same lake where they met, and Ryan proposed to Reanne on the same sled; he got down on one knee, told her he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her, and asked her to marry him. An ecstatic Reanne said “yes!”

The Big Day

The bride and groom wanted to have all of their friends and family celebrate with them, so they held their New Year’s Eve wedding in Reanne’s hometown of Vermilion, AB. They decked the hall in blush, gold and sequins to evoke an era of vintage glamour. A boutique lounge area created with antique furniture made for fun indoor photos, and guests indulged in a champagne bar. Reanne wore her dream dress, Monroe by Hailey Paige, which she fell in love with after seeing it featured in Blush Magazine.

Favourite Moments

Reanne’s favourite moment was when Ryan sang her down the aisle to “Never Stop” by SafetySuit. Ryan’s favourite moment was, of course, seeing his beautiful bride for the first time.
