This gorgeous newlywed couple came all the way from Switzerland to marry at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. Claire and Matthias celebrated not only one, but TWO fabulous wedding receptions! One wedding took place in the groom’s hometown of Schattdorf, Switzerland, and the other, in the bride’s hometown of Edmonton, Alberta. Their love story is quite adorable indeed.
One night while out with her girlfriends, Claire happened to walk by a cute guy on her way to the washroom. When she returned to her table, she said excitedly to her friends, “I just saw the man I’m going to marry!” Claire managed to say a few words to Matthias, and chapter one of their love story began…
After a few summers of enjoying a long distance relationship, Claire’s parents surprised her with a trip to Switzerland, and the love story continued on.
I received a message from Claire in December of 2014. She was coming for a visit to Edmonton and she and Matthias needed everything planned as quickly as possible.
Claire and Matthias wished for an intimate and elegant celebration that included Claire’s favourite colour of purple as a feature colour. During Claire’s 7 day visit to Edmonton, we booked everything from invitations, to decorations, and everything in between. It was a whirlwind of planning and deadlines, but everything was completed just in time. The wedding day came before we knew it.
Provided is a sneak peek behind the scenes video of the set up for Claire and Matthias’ wedding day!
Congratulations once again to Claire and Matthias!
