A Modern Mountain Wedding at Lake Louise

Cara and Keith’s wedding at the Chateau Lake Louise was a chance to celebrate their New York City love story with the bride’s massive Albertan family and introduce the beautiful Rockies to the couple’s urban guests that had flown in mostly from NY, SF, London, and Hong Kong for the occasion. The couple wanted to create a warm and celebratory atmosphere that would both complement the beautifully lush mountain setting and reflect the understated modern elegance of the newly updated Victoria Ballroom where the reception was held. For the waterfront ceremony on Victoria Terrace, they let nature take center stage, enhancing the blue of the lake and skies with pops of blue in the fuschia, pink and peach bouquets.

For the reception, they were determined to have long feasting tables –the longer the better, to create a sense of togetherness and facilitate conversation amongst old friends and new. Lush grey-green garlands of Eucalyptus ran down the center of the tables, bringing the natural theme indoors and providing a muted backdrop to the roses that seemed to bloom from the garlands. The low florals ensured that revelers could see and hear each other clearly, and the ivory pillar candles dotting the length of the tables ensured everybody was cast in a romantic, flattering glow. The silvery napkins provided a modern contrast to the light gold linens. Rose gold sequined linens added a touch of glamour to the head table. The couple infused personal touches throughout, from handmade magnetic gold animal place-card holders to reflect their joint love of wildlife, to tables named after the 9 separate cities that they lived in until they met, to a dessert table laden with the couple’s favourite treats –mini cupcakes in creative flavor combinations, a towering croquembouche dusted in icing sugar like snow on a mountain top, macarons in rose, mango, and green tea, lemon meringue tartlets, and mini smore cookie sandwiches to tie back to the welcome bonfire-and-smore reception held the night before on the shores of the lake.

A Winter Wedding in Lake Louise, Alberta

From the bride, Trina: Our wedding location was out of a fairytale, The Fairmont Chateau in Lake Louise. The sun broke at the most perfect time of the day to shine into the ballroom during our vows. I looked and felt exactly the way every girl should feel on their wedding day, like a princess marrying my prince, the man of my dreams. The vows we wrote made the day so incredibly special, because it was our words expressing the love we have for one another. Everything after was icing on the cake!

Engagement Shoot: Winter Bliss

Evergreens dripping with fresh snow, jagged mountain peaks covered in white, and crystal clear water created a romantic winter backdrop for this engagement shoot by Photography by Ginevre.  The couple is getting married in the Dominican Republic this summer and wanted a winter engagement session that would be completely different from the wedding.  Their photographer found the perfect setting at Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies.Luxe Mountain Weddings Luxe Mountain Weddings - Canada Luxe Mountain Weddings - Canada Luxe Mountain Weddings - Canada Luxe Mountain Weddings - CanadaLuxe Mountain Weddings - Canada Luxe Mountain Weddings - CanadaLuxe Mountain Weddings - Canada
