Destination ‘I Do’ Wedding Series: Banff, Alberta

We have had the pleasure of planning a few weddings at the amazing Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel which is set amongst the beautiful alpine forests of the Rocky Mountains. The town has an elevation of 4,537 feet, making it the highest town in Canada and was also Canada’s first national park established in 1885. We love Banff Alberta for many reasons including…

  • Weather: Banff has an overall mild temperature, with July being the hottest month averaging 16°C and the coldest is January at -11°C.
  • Hotels, restaurants, shopping: Banff has 90+ hotels, 100+ restaurants and countless premiere shops.
  • Banff restaurants serve a unique and authentic Rocky Mountain / Canadian menu which includes trout, venison, elk, moose, and bison.
  • Activities(Recreation) + Attractions: Many things to do year round. Popular attractions include Banff gondola, hot springs, lake cruises, cave tours, skiing the big 3, hiking the more than 1,600 km or trails.
  • Mount Stephen Hall medieval characteristics are a unique backdrop for any wedding.

Lake Louise Wedding Planner: Kaylee + Zach

Surrounded with snow-capped mountains and set on an expansive lake, The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is truly a winter wonderland. Family and friends from 26 states and 3 provinces travelled to Lake Louise to celebrate Kaylee and Zach’s wedding. As most guests had never been to Canada let alone the majestic Rocky Mountains, the bride and groom wanted to showcase the natural beauty of the region while providing their loved ones with a quintessential Canadian winter experience.

  • Upon arrival guests received welcome packages in their hotel room which included Canadian scarves or mittens from Hudson Bay Company.
  • On Thursday evening, a VIP rehearsal dinner for the bridal party and close family was held at the cozy Deer Lodge.
  • Friday morning Zach and his attendants hosted an ice hockey game on Lake Louise.
  • Later that evening all guests attended an outdoor welcome party complete with bonfires, a hot chocolate bar and s’mores.
  • The wedding festivities were held on Saturday, beginning with the ceremony in the beautiful Victoria Ballroom.
  • After exchanging vows, the newlyweds took photos while all 180 guests departed on horse-drawn sleigh rides around the lake.
  • In the early evening, everyone returned to the ballroom which had been transformed for the reception.
  • An after party in Alpine Social was held following the reception to extend the festivities into the early morning!

As you can see, this was quite the wedding! We are honoured that it was chosen to be featured on the WedLuxe blog, and was the recipient of two wedding industry awards:

Parfait Productions put together this incredible highlight film of the wedding day, and the images below by Stoffer Photography are so timeless and beautiful. Enjoy!

Edmonton Wedding Coordinator: Stephanie + Matt

Stephanie + Matt blended a traditional church ceremony with a modern, all-white reception at Renaissance Edmonton Airport Hotel.

After hair and makeup at Carrie’l Salon & Spa, the ladies enjoyed bubbly and got dressed in the Onyx Suite at Matrix Hotel. Stephanie’s eight bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning in their mismatched white dresses. They joined up with the dapper groomsmen to take photos at Renaissance after the church service at St. Joseph’s Basilica.

The reception design was monochromatic and minimalist, with geometric centrepieces and lighting, and white florals including hydrangea and calla lilies. Amidst the all-white reception décor was a colourful rainbow candy table with Henri – Fabloomosity’s infamous boxwood elephant – overlooking the display.

Right before the final speech, Stephanie’s sister initiated a surprise flash mob that filled the dance floor with guests singing and dancing. This was the biggest and best one we’ve seen executed at a wedding! Stephanie’s jaw dropped and she was blown away by this surprise.

Jade Gabrielle did a wonderful job capturing this stylish day!
