Sunshine Coast WeddingTrinh + Menashe: Sunshine Coast Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on May 8, 2017

Trinh and Menashe’s story is a true travel love story. Trinh traveled to Las Vegas from Vancouver and was at the same club as Menashe. The two were even at the same table but were not formally introduced that night. Fast forward seven months, Trinh took a spontaneous trip to Miami and was reconnected with Menashe through mutual friends. Sparks flew immediately and from that day on, the couple spent two years travelling to see one another.

The Proposal

The couple were on a trip in the breathtaking Maldives staying in an over water bungalow. Menashe arranged a romantic candlelit dinner alone on the beach. They were the only table under the moonlight and sparkling stars when Menashe proposed. Trinh reminisces,”it was an unforgettably romantic perfect night!”

The Big Day

Trinh and Menashe wanted to host an intimate outdoor reception and dinner somewhere with a beautiful view. So they were thrilled when they found a beautiful estate in Gibsons, B.C – on the Sunshine Coast overlooking the ocean. The venue was large enough for their 40 guests to stay for the entire weekend. It was extra special because Menashe’s family and closest friends flew all the way in from Israel – it was the first time their families were all meeting.

Favourite Moments

“When we lit the huge white lanterns at nightfall. It was so special to see all those lights floating up into the sky! It was so romantic! And I love that all our guests were involved too, they still tell us how much fun they had lighting them!”

Newlywed Advice

“Stay true to the vision you have for your special day. Don’t let guilt or pressure from others turn your wedding into what you think you have to do out of respect. You will regret not having your perfect day just to make others happy. Eventually people understand and just be happy for you – once they see how happy you are having your perfect day as you see it.”

Looking Forward to Most Now Being Married

“Everything!! Every single moment together. I somehow already wake up happier everyday, than I was the day before.”- Trinh

Outdoor Edmonton WeddingTiffiney + Jeff: Outdoor Edmonton Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on April 16, 2017

Tiffiney and Jeff met working together at Ikea.  Five years after their first bump in, Ikea held a summer party. After the party, Tiffiney asked him for a ride home and the rest is history!

The Proposal

Jeff proposed to Tiffiney in London, England on the London Eye Ferris Wheel. Tiffiney had a feeling he was going to propose on the trip but played along until the proposal.

The Big Day

Tiffiney and Jeff tied the knot and celebrated in two unique venues. Their calm ceremony was at the Devonian Botanic Garden and their reception party was at the Edmonton Country Club (ps. you don’t need to be a member to host your wedding there). Jeff and his dad love classic cars, his father has a Chevy Nova that the couple were able to use for photos and for an alone time spin.

Music and dancing was one of the couples priorities and highlights. They walked down the aisle to an acoustic guitar playing ‘First Day of my Life and Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky.” The couple love hip-hop and R&B music so it was really important that they hired a DJ that would help them throw a party to remember. They arranged for their dance floor to be outdoors and hired DJ Kwake to play their favourite tracks. The newlyweds and their guests were on the dance floor the entire night.

Favourite Moments

Tiffiney: “Our vows, it took a lot for Jeff and I to write our own vows but I thought it was important. I think Jeff made everyone cry and I was really proud of him for writing them and expressing himself that way. They were touching and funny at the same time, and everything I hoped they would be.”

Jeff: “Our first dance, it was really amazing to have my cousins sing for us. We are very family orientated and that was just a special moment for the two of us. My cousins are also very talented, they live in California so not many of our friends in Edmonton have heard them sing so it was a treat to share that with our guests.”

Newlywed Advice

1) Hire a day of coordinator to handle all the details and vendor calls the day of the wedding. 2) Have your beauty team come to you so you can relax in your own space. 3) Plan some alone time with your partner, your wedding day is so high paced and goes by really fast.

Looking Forward to Most Now Being Married

“We are looking forward to relaxing in each others company and supporting each other through life.”

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.

Elegant Floral WeddingJulia + Ben: Elegant Floral Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on February 8, 2017

Ben and Julia went on their first date in 2002 and have been inseparable ever since. After being together for 12 years, they began to discuss wedding details — and even set a date before getting engaged!

The Proposal

They picked out a ring together, but night after night it sat on the nightstand until Ben finally got one on knee and officially asked Julia to be his wife.

The Big Day

For the wedding decor, Julia knew she wanted something very elegant and romantic, so she dreamed up a vision incorporating greys, golds, pinks, and a lot of fresh florals and greenery. Flowers filled their venue, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel West Edmonton, but the most stunning piece was the floral canopy with a crystal chandelier hanging from the centre.

Another great statement piece was the seating chart designed by the couple’s event planner, Samantha. It was designed to look like a larger version of the wedding invitations, complete with their monogram!

Favourite Moments

Ben’s favourite moment of the day was watching his wife-to-be walk down the aisle, and recalls the surreal feeling knowing the day had finally arrived. Julia will always remember trying to hold back her tears while listening to the thoughtful, funny and sweet vows Ben had written for her.

Newlywed Advice

Enjoy the day as much as possible. It goes by so fast! Make sure to spend some quality time with your spouse as well. Step out for a quick break and relish in the moment. Also, try not to stress out too much about the small details. No one will notice, and it will just end up driving you insane.

Looking Forward to Most Now Being Married

The Luu’s are excited for the future and are eager to start a family.
