from a stop at the excellent Mercer Tavern to the dreamy dusk-lit images amidst the pyramids of the Muttart Conservatory, Lyndsey and Jordan’s wedding day was simply sublime and full of local goodness. these stunning photos tell the story of this laid back couple’s special day, and they were happy to answer a few of our question about their relationship and their wedding day. enjoy!
how did you meet?
the short story is that we met in university. our paths kept crossing…first in engineering and then in business. once we started dating we knew that we had something special; something that we wanted to share with each other for the rest of our lives.
what was the proposal like?
we aren’t the most extravagant people in the world so there wasn’t an elaborate proposal. it was a beautiful morning, and we were enjoying a coffee on our balcony. when Jordan popped the question, Lyndsey responded with “you’re joking, that box is empty!” she was pretty happy once she realized it wasn’t a joke!
tell us about the planning process!
we thought that having a small wedding would make things easier, but in reality the to-do list was still pretty long. we had some great vendors and some helpful family and friends that really eased the planning process.
was there anything you were worried wouldn’t work, but turned out awesome?
the seasonal pavillion at the Muttart is changed several times a year so when we booked we only had some basic information about what the pavillion would actually look like for our wedding day. a couple weeks before our day the pavillion was ready to be viewed and once we saw it, we were thrilled, it was absolutely stunning. the staff at the Muttart were also very helpful and accommodating.
what was the best moment of the day?
during the ceremony there was a miscommunication in the script and Lyndsey was not given the opportunity to say her vows. Lyndsey raised her hand and in her kindest voice said “excuse me, i have something to add” all of the guests had a good laugh, it was the perfect way to bring some humour to the event.
got any advice for someone planning an edmonton wedding?
the most important part of our wedding was that we were getting to marry each other. we were pretty easy going about details and were more interested in having a good day. try to have fun and embrace the love that you are celebrating!
