Happy #WeddingWednesday lovers! We’re excited to share this beautiful Leduc Stone Barn wedding in Edmonton, Canada. Photographed by the collective Moments by Suria, the gorgeous multicultural wedding kicked off with an outdoor ceremony at the picturesque Leduc Stone Barn and followed up with an indoor ballroom reception at The Oasis Centre. Bride Jennifer had the opportunity of planning her wedding from start to finish (not an easy task!) so she took advantage of inserting various ideas and themes as she pleased.
I knew I wanted some rustic elements mixed with moderate elegant hints, some enchanting feels and a sprinkle of vogue. We initially wanted an outdoor ceremony + reception, with fantasies of dancing the night away under moonlit stars but chose not to play it les risque, as Edmonton is widely known for its indecisive weather. Sure enough, it rained right after we finished up with our bridal party photos!
Our outdoor wedding ceremony took place in the city of Leduc’s Cultural Village and Stone Barn Garden. The open, unfinished barn was the perfect backdrop for our happily ever after.
Setor is from the Ewe tribe in Ghana and I am from the Edo tribe in Nigeria. By default, our wedding festivities were richly infused with aspects from both cultures. We celebrated our traditional engagement 2 days before the wedding at my parents’ house in Edmonton, AB. The atmosphere was very vibrant and colorful as the room was transformed by guests dressed in kente, coral beads and the traditional Nigerian gele. We performed some rites of passage as we would normally do if we were back in the motherland and exchanged gifts from both sides of the family. The neighborhood echoed with sounds from both Nigeria and Ghana as both families came together to celebrate and dance the night away.
