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: 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!

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…
