happy new year, edmonton!
it has been such a joy running yegwed.com – i have met so many great people since we launched in July, and have loved showcasing some of edmonton’s best talent in the wedding industry. i’m pretty pleased with our success by the numbers, too – we’ve had 20,000 pageviews in the past six months, our twitter following is nearly at 500, and we’ve got a facebook community of over 200 fans! however, yegwed.com would be nothing without the amazing images and interviews that come our way from our awesome edmonton wedding vendors and couples.
wondering what has been the most popular content? well, here are top five lists of two categories, so you can check out yegwed’s most-loved content and vendors.
top five posts of 2014
our first round-up of unique wedding venues in edmonton is our all-time most-viewed post. with gems like the Art Gallery of Alberta and the Edmonton High-Level Bridge Streetcar, it’s hardly a surprise that it’s popular – but if you’re still on the hunt for your own wedding venue, be sure to check out the full post as well as part two that was published in December!
argh- i can’t get enough of this adorable photo outside of Block 1912 on whyte ave – and apparently, neither can you! Kellie + Kyle’s winter wedding was our second-place post, and the most-viewed real wedding we’ve published! check out their wedding for amazing wintery details, and a couple that is smiley and smitten. kudos to Julia James Photography, for being the master behind these images.
forget kim kardashian, our interview with Jordan Broom-Hall broke the internet (well, at least our corner of it!) – on the day this interview was published, our site traffic was the highest it’s ever been. ranking at number three of our top posts this year is an interview with the owner and creative genius behind Atmosphere Weddings – one of edmonton’s premiere wedding planners. check it out here!
what started as a simple solution for sore feet during a wedding reception has grown into an international brand – Sara and Jeni’s story behind the creation and growth of Rescue Flats has our fourth-place spot. Check out this interview for some inspiration in business, as well as a fantastic wedding favour idea for your lady guests.
submitted by star wedding planner, Hevin Mueller of Story Weddings and Events, Danielle and Tim’s wedding at the stately Magrath Mansion comes in fifth place, and our second-place real wedding of all time. click through to the post for an incredible team of vendors and an all-round beautiful wedding.
