Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Wedding Coordinator: Grace + Shane

Along with 150 of their favourite people, Grace and Shane travelled to the majestic Rocky Mountains for their winter destination wedding at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.

As most guests were visiting the area for the first time from the US, Grace and Shane hosted a welcome reception the evening prior to the wedding. They shuttled their guests from Lake Louise to wine and dine at the The Bison and experience the world-renowned Town of Banff.

The wedding day itself was mild as far as Canadian winters go, and the happy couple were able to exchange vows outdoors in front of the icy blue lake. After dinner and toasts, they danced the night away in the Victoria Ballroom to old and new hits covered by Five on the Side Band!

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:

Lake Louise Wedding Planner: Erin + Adam

Living in Alberta, winter is something you must embrace, or you’re in for a long 5 – maybe 6, sometimes 7 – months! Erin and Adam chose to do just that by holding their February wedding in one of Canada’s most spectacular destination wedding locations: Lake Louise. Their two main priorities for the wedding were to extend the festivities over the course of an entire weekend, and to provide guests with a quintessential winter experience in the Canadian Rockies.

The weekend began Friday morning with a chartered motor coach driving Edmonton guests to The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Following a delicious rehearsal dinner in the Alpine Room, guests gathered for hot chocolate and s’mores by the lakeside fire pits and ice bar. On the morning of the wedding, Adam and his groomsmen hosted a pick-up hockey game on the frozen lake, while the ladies enjoyed a leisurely morning in their suite getting ready for the big day.

Weddingbells Magazine CoverAfter exchanging vows in the Victoria Ballroom, the newlyweds went off for photos with their wedding party while guests departed on horse-drawn sleigh rides! Our team spent the next few hours transforming the ballroom with long wooden tables, lush greenery runners, tons of candlesticks and gold accents. The party continued in the Glacier Saloon where late night snacks including poutine and sliders were served, and dancing in hotel slippers went on until the early hours of the morning.

This truly stunning winter destination wedding is featured in the Spring / Summer 2017 issue of Weddingbells Magazine, so grab a copy and enjoy the images below captured by the very talented Brittany Esther Photography.

Destination I Do: Lake Louise

While we’re based in Edmonton, Alberta, we’ve had the pleasure of planning and designing weddings in many beautiful destinations – both in Canada and abroad! This series will showcase some of our favourite locations including information for couples considering a wedding away from home.

+  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +

Destination ‘I Do’ Wedding Series: Lake Louise, Alberta

Nestled in the Canadian Rockies and just a short 40 min drive from Banff, Lake Louise is truly a unique mountain escape. The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise (CLL) has a rich history dating back as early as 1911 when the General Manager of the Canadian Pacific Railway constructed a one-story log cabin on the shores of Lake Louise – a glacier fed lake with stunning emerald hues. CLL has hosted many famous guests and Royalty including Marilyn Monroe, Christopher Reeve and Queen Elizabeth II, to name a few.

Chateau Lake Louise offers several different event spaces to host your wedding festivities no matter the size – from an intimate gathering of 20 guests in the Lefroy Room, all the way up to 600 guests in Mount Temple Ballroom. One of the most popular wedding spaces is Victoria Ballroom, which has recently completed renovations in September 2016.

You can see from our weddings below that no matter the season, The Chateau’s views will not disappoint!

Lake Louise Wedding Planner: Tess + James

Planning an early May wedding in Alberta is always a gamble in terms of weather, but when you’re getting married at one of the most picturesque locations in the country, you really can’t go wrong! Driving to The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, the roads were clear and the sky was blue. As we approached this renowned retreat in the Rockies, the snow began to fall and we woke up the next morning to the most gorgeous view – it felt like we were inside a snow globe peering out!

Tess + James’ vision for their mountain destination wedding was to host an intimate celebration full of warmth and romance. With nods of Tuscan influence, organic greenery and an abundance of lush florals covered the tables, while gold candelabras added formality and elegance to the beautiful Victoria ballroom. A dramatic king’s table set in front of the stone fireplace hosted the 14-person wedding party.

As always, Kelly Redinger did an incredible job capturing the day!

Inspiration to Reality: Tess + James

Tess + James’ vision for their Lake Louise destination wedding was an intimate celebration full of warmth and romance. With nods of Tuscan influence, an abundance of lush, organic florals in tones of blush, pink, peach and crimson covered the tables, while gold candelabras and candlesticks added formality and glamour to the elegant Victoria Ballroom.

Lake Louise Wedding Planner: Jenny + James

It’s the middle of the summer and the last thing you want to do is think about snow. But today’s Real Wedding post will make you want to welcome winter with open arms!

There’s something about The Chateau Lake Louise that makes it such a special place to visit. There’s an atmosphere of serenity like you’re removed from the busyness of the everyday. Add snow-capped mountains and crisp blue sky and it’s winter wedding perfection!

Jenny + James chose to get married a few days after Christmas so that visiting family members from the UK could be in attendance at this special occasion. Both their ceremony and reception were held in the Victoria Ballroom, where a warm stone fireplace served as the backdrop for their nuptials while beautiful sounds of cello and violin filled the room.

Their gorgeous wedding party, outfitted in timeless black and white, braved the chilly air for picturesque views prior to returning to the ballroom for cocktails. The reception design was classic with a dash of whimsy. Gold chiavari chairs, pewter frames, silver julep vases and gold charger plates developed the mixed metallic palette, adding to the elegance of the space. The wedding cake design was based on Jenny’s grandparents’ cake and a photo of the original was placed on the cake table along with it.

Sharon Litchfield never ceases to impress with her stunning photography. Enjoy Jenny + James’ love story from behind her lens…

Lake Louise Wedding Planner: Shelley + Stewart

Style Me Pretty CanadaWe had the pleasure of working with Shelley + Stewart to plan their beautiful Rocky Mountain wedding. With a stunning turquoise lake as a backdrop, The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise was an obvious choice. It started drizzling right before the ceremony but this didn’t phase Shelley one bit as she made her way down the aisle on her father’s arm. It actually turned into an adorable photo-op as both fathers proudly held umbrellas over their children as they united in marriage! Following the ceremony, guests congregated indoors for a champagne reception. Bel Canto Strings played beautiful classical versions of the bride and groom’s favourite songs by Coldplay and Snow Patrol.

The Victoria Ballroom was decorated to enhance its rustic yet elegant ambiance. Table centres featured beautiful wooden lanterns surrounded by candlelight and mason jars filled with green hydrangea, cotton, ivory roses and scabiosa pods. A comfortable lounge seating area was setup near the dance floor where guests enjoyed warm beverages from a specialty coffee bar. The next day, before departing on their Croatian honeymoon, Shelley and Stewart treated their guests to an experiential brunch at Lake Louise Ski Hill.

Photographed by the insanely talented Phil Crozier, it’s no surprise this wedding was recently featured on Style Me Pretty Canada!
