Dorothy + Chad were married in Jasper, Alberta over the May long weekend (you may remember the sneak peek I shared a while back). I began working with this down-to-earth couple in February 2009, and after 15 months of planning it was so wonderful to see them enjoy the day with their family and friends in the Rockies.
The wedding reception was held at The Sawridge Inn & Conference Centre, and the day was captured beautifully by A Different Angle Photography. Guests danced the night away to tunes played by DJ Tommy of Jasper’s Alpine Music. Special thanks to Christine for assisting me throughout the day.
Dorothy + Chad’s son, Chase, is the cutest little boy! He had the important job of being the ring bearer at the ceremony.
The ceremony was held at one of the lookouts on Jasper’s Pyramid Lake Island. A handmade wooden sign pointed guests in the right direction.
This wagon pulled the flower girl and ring bearer down the aisle, while announcing the bride’s entrance! How cute is that!?
It’s tough work bearing rings!
Dorothy’s beautiful, rustic bouquet – all flowers were arranged by the wonderful team at Elysion Florals. As a surprise for the couple, I had two wooden tags made with Dorothy + Chad’s names engraved on them.
It was a chilly walk across the bridge to meet her groom, but the stunning scenery made up for it!
The ceremony was performed by Marriage Commissioner Beryl Cahill.
The beautiful bride!
Dorothy + Chad decided they wanted the reception décor to be a surprise. Here is their reaction to seeing the room for the first time!
We designed the table décor with an “Alpine Elegance” theme in mind:
- A brown lantern sat on top of a wooden slab covered in earthy elements (moss, pine cones, sticks and berries);
- Votives and candles in mason jars surrounded the lanterns to make the tables glow;
- Ivory pintuck linens, chocolate satin chair wraps and brown napkins polished off the look.
Table seating cards in a bed of moss pointed guests to their seats.
The rustic wooden table numbers were custom made by the highly talented Sharon Auld of Naturally Chic. They went so perfectly with the theme and design of the wedding!
Dorothy + Chad opted for delicious cupcakes from Bear’s Paw Bakery Jasper.
Dorothy, Chad + Chase: Thank you for trusting me with this important day! I wish you all the best as you begin this new chapter in your lives.
