Urban Edmonton Wedding

By Melissa

Happy monday! This next wedding is totally up my alley…it’s urban, chic and oh-so-modern. Jennifer Bergman Weddings did an amazing job with the details and at the end, she shares some tidbits about the wedding.

Sterling and Heng were married on September 11, 2010 – precisely 11 years after they started dating!. The sentiment from their family and friends was consistent: “It’s about time!” We worked together to plan their modern, urban wedding for just less than a year. I truly enjoyed Sterling and Heng’s relaxed demeanours and the strong friendship between these two high school sweethearts was evident.

VENUES: Sterling and Heng decided they wanted a very unique, very urban ceremony location with a great view of the city. The top level of Windsor Carpark on the University of Alberta Campus was a perfect choice, and we lucked out with a clear day. When considering where to hold the reception, Edmonton’s Matrix Hotel stood out for the couple. It is definitely one of the most modern venues in the city and suited their wedding style perfectly.

BOUQUET/DECOR INSPIRATION: Sterling had some awesome ideas in mind for the wedding (after all, she had quite a bit of time to think about it over the years)! She knew she wanted a black and white wedding with a ‘pop’ of turquoise, feather centrepieces and a cascading white Phalaenopsis Orchid bouquet. Small wooden elephants, symbolizing strength and good luck in Chinese culture, were placed on the tables for guests to take home. Alternating centrepieces of white ostrich and peacock feathers sat atop eiffel vases glowing with turquoise lights. Single white carnation blooms in flower tubes were hung from the light structures in the ballroom. This created an amazing chandelier effect!

JDS Photography captured the day beautifully, as always, and their photobooth at the reception was a huge hit with guests!
