A Beautiful, Elegant Wedding In Edmonton

A swipe to the right was all Isaac and Jihan needed to start their modern love story. “Isaac was working in the military out of town while I was a nurse working shifts,” Jihan says. “We spent the next years travelling back and forth to see each other and making new memories.”

Their wedding day was also a reunion since Jihan was originally from New Jersey and Isaac from Ontario. “Most of our guests flew from other provinces and countries,” she explains. “We had family and friends fly in from Montreal, Ontario, British Columbia, New Jersey, and California as well as New Zealand, Australia and Scotland. It was a wedding and a reunion all in one day.”

The couple opted for a simple and neutral wedding colour scheme. “The ballroom we had chosen for the reception had a cool grey tone with some details in cream such as the ceiling and the drapes,” Jihan says. “I was set on having my favourite café au lait dahlias and large bloom roses for my bouquet to add a pop colour to the very black and white look that we had. The subtle shades of cream and blush were also used for the head table’s garland and the entourage’s boutonnières and corsages.”

Isaac and Jihan had fun with their first dance and picked two songs instead of one, “We decided a routine that wasn’t too formal would better suit us. We both liked James Arthur’s ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’ but was little too romantic for us,” Jihan explains. “We thought dancing to a throwback boy band song would get our guests’ attention and make it more fun and lively, so we transitioned the song to ‘As Long as You Love Me’ by The Backstreet Boys!”
