Edmonton Wedding Planner: Charlotte + Frantz, Part 2

After saying ‘I Do’ in an intimate ceremony at The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald, Charlotte + Frantz wanted to celebrate their marriage by throwing an incredible party for their friends and families. The reception was held six months later at the modern Art Gallery of Alberta

Long rectangle tables flanked either side of the reception space, while square tables lined the centre of the room. Layers of geometric patterns on the linens, table runners and chargers enhanced a monochromatic palette of whites and soft greys. Homogenous groupings of all-white florals including callas, hydrangea, peonies and garden roses were angled for a modern look. Luxurious letterpress stationery featured the couple’s contemporary monogram, which was also displayed on the DJ booth and custom Violet Chocolate Co. favours.

A dessert bar featured Charlotte + Frantz’s favourite sweets, including Nanaimo bars and locally owned Moonshine doughnuts. Fat Franks hot dog truck served delicious late night eats – a perfect way to fuel up for more dancing!

Before perusing the gorgeous photos by Gabe McClintock, you MUST watch this incredible video by Capture the Moment Media based in Vancouver. They filmed both the December ceremony and June reception – it’s such a wonderful depiction of Charlotte + Frantz’s love story.

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Charlotte + Frantz, Part 1

Charlotte + Frantz were married in an intimate ceremony at The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. They wanted to exchange vows in front of their immediate families, sharing the sacred moment with their most important supporters. They recited their own vows, which were so beautiful and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. I feel so honoured to have shared in this special moment with them.

Months later, they would celebrate with an ultra-modern reception at the Art Gallery of Alberta – more to come in Part 2!
