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: 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!

Lake Louise Wedding Planner: Jodie + Chris

Living in Alberta we are so lucky to have the Rocky Mountains as our “backyard.” More and more Edmonton couples are opting to take advantage of this local splendor by having a Rocky Mountain destination wedding.

I worked with Jodie + Chris for just over a year to plan their fall-inspired wedding weekend at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise – one of the most breathtaking locations in Canada. Jodie + Chris are very detail-oriented and thought carefully about each component of their day. It was this consideration and their personal touches that made guests feel so taken care of throughout the weekend. By planning a welcome reception the night everyone arrived to a “Sunday Hugs” breakfast the morning after the wedding, Jodie + Chris were able to spend a lot of time with their family and friends who had travelled from across the country to celebrate with them.

The ceremony took place on the Victoria Terrace at Chateau Lake Louise. We lucked out with a beautiful, clear day and unseasonably warm weather for late October! The reception followed in the Fairview Dining Room, and after an extraordinary gourmet meal the party went into full-swing with some unique entertainment. Two highly talented duelling pianists – Lindsey Nagy and Jesse Peters – performed a variety of hits (including the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air rap!) and kept the dance floor full all night.

Eric Daigle Photography did an amazing job capturing the day! Check out the beautiful images of Jodie + Chris’ wedding below, and pop over to Eric’s blog to see all his recent work.

Special thanks to Ewa for assisting!

Jodie + Chris opted to give functional “his and hers”  favours to their guests. The ladies received warm pashmina shawls in the wedding colours to wear during the outdoor ceremony, and the guys were given Swiss Army Knives etched with the wedding date!

The tables were dressed with rich burgundy pintuck linens, gold charger plates and chocolate brown satin napkins. Tall cylinder vases with curly willow and burnt orange cymbidium orchids helped complete the look while adding a subtle touch of  “fall” to the reception décor.
