For those who don’t know me, I was born and raised in Camrose, Alberta so when Paige and Sean first got in touch with me about planning their wedding in Camrose I was ECSTATIC! Sean is the owner of the Norsemen Inn in Camrose so it was only fitting to host their big day in a space that was so near and dear to his heart. After a few meetings with these two, their vision was a lavish, elegant wedding reception that would completely revamp the Norsemen Inn’s banquet space into something it has never been before which you will certainly see as you scroll through their photos! The end result was absolutely extraordinary to the point where guests asked “Are we still in the Norsemen?” and “We’ve never seen this space so transformed!”…I’d say mission accomplished!
Paige + Sean’s ceremony was held at the Church of God by Pastor Brian Krushel where all of their closest family and friends sat in beautiful wooden church pews and witnessed their I do’s!
An elegant wedding set with navy, ivory and gold accents including soft florals and lush greens to augment the remaining decor were the focus of this receptions design. A full perimeter draping in the reception was installed to soften the walls and brighten the space along with hanging string lights to create the delicate glow of being beneath the stars. Instead of using a traditional round or rectangle table seating plan we designed their guest tables in the shape of an “x” to maximize the floorspace and add a new level of dimension. In each “x’s” middle was an incredible four foot floral centrepiece to round off the luxurious elegance that we were after. Guest tables were dressed in rich ivory and navy sequin linens with gold beaded charger plates, flickering tea lights, and fresh garland greens.
Being that the Norsemen Inn has a microbrewery located in the hotel, guests sipped on Sean’s favourite brew the Longship Blonde Ale and Paige’s favourite cocktail, the Cosmopolitan Martini. Friends of theirs had their own band called The Brown Paper Bags where guests flooded the dance floor all night long–to say this dance was bumpin’ would be a total understatement! Tracey and Mark with Crown Photography documented Paige + Sean’s wedding day magic so perfectly and we absolutely LOVE that they made time for Paige + Sean to spend a few private moments with one another in this beautiful space before all of their guests arrived. To Paige + Sean, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day, huge congratulations again to you both!
