We had our first snow storm of the season over the weekend, and it got me in the mood for all things winter. And winter weddings? Well, they are some of my favorites. Particularly when they happen to be as stunning as this one designed by Jennifer Bergman Weddings at the beautiful Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. It’s picture after picture from Sharon Litchfield of pure winter perfection, and you can see it all right here.
From Jennifer Bergman Weddings…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 and James chose to marry 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 and beautiful sounds of cello and violin filled the room.
Outfitted in timeless black and white, the gorgeous wedding party braved chilly air for picturesque views prior to returning to the ballroom for cocktails. The reception design was classic with a dash of whimsy. We incorporated mixed metallic decor elements – pewter frames, silver julep vases, gold chiavari chairs and charger plates – to enhance the elegance and formality of the space.
Jenny and James added personal details to their wedding to make the celebration even more meaningful:In lieu of favors, the couple made a donation to the Humane Society as they have a shared love for animals. A family member recited a special poem during the ceremony. 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.
