Hotel Georgia wedding 1

Last year, I had the privilege of planning Narmin and Aslam’s Ismaili wedding at The Jamatkhana Center with a beautiful reception to follow at the historic Rosewood Hotel Georgia. The Jamatkhana Center is one of the most tranquil places in the city and I feel so honored every time I am able to do a wedding ceremony there-it is a very special place. Narmin and Aslam both live in Calgary so planning their wedding was a result of bi-weekly calls and Skype meetings spread out over a yeah and a half. Each call was filled with with many laughs and stories of their love of shopping and all things designer. One of the best things about Narmin and Aslam is there ability to make others laugh, while laughing with each other. I really looked forward to each of our meetings together.

The day itself was filled with so many small, thoughtful touches. Narmin + Aslam hand wrote thank-you notes on cherry blossom cards, designed by Love by Phoebe, and we placed them on each place setting at the reception. As an alternative to a guestbook, their guests were asked to write a note on a small wooden puzzle piece and place it in a bowl for the couple to assemble after the wedding. When it came to their wedding cake, it needed to be four things. It needed to be red velvet, it needed to have pink flowers, it needed to be mini and it needed to be naked! The final result was beautifully deigned and delicious thanks to Sweet Thea. The reception was concluded with an incredible dance number by the Lucky Aces who really got the party started!

Looking back on this wedding gives me so much happiness. Narmin and Aslam were such a pleasure to work with and I wish them so much love and joy for their future.
