Take a crazy cool setting like The Fairmont Banff Springs and add one of the prettiest weddings you’ve ever seen from Sheryl Boury of Lynn Fletcher Weddings and it’s a ballroom extravaganza that is out of this world pretty. A rustic backdrop meets elegant details sort of pretty that perfectly merges lush blooms from The Nosegay with amazing photography from Adrian Photographers. See it all here.
From Adrian Photographers… Located in Banff National Park you find Canada’s “Castle in the Rockies,” The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. These two couldn’t of looked more elegant in Mt. Stephen’s Hall where they exchanged vows. It was such a great privilege to photograph them and hope you enjoy their stunning images.
From Lynn Fletcher Weddings… The Wedding was held in the Gorgeous Banff Springs Hotel, amidst the Rocky Mountains! With the Ceremony located in the Stunning Mt Stephen Hall, from the Cocktail reception in the Riverview Lounge, and the Dinner and Dance in Cascade Ballroom and Conservatory, guests were able to experience all different ballrooms throughout the Hotel. Colour palettes of soft blush pinks and vibrant Watermelon were in accent tables and centerpieces. Flowers consisted of Spring-time buttery yellow tulips, fluffy pink garden roses and gentle greenery. Reception Tables were duo-tones of silver and pewter linens, with ivory and gold accents throughout. The evening for the wonderful couple was completed with a 16 foot custom monogrammed Ice Bar and a one of a kind dessert buffet made with love by the Bride’s mom!

You know what goes so very, very good together? A glittery gold dress and a snow-filled forest. Together they make one crazy beautiful combination, and when they are all wrapped up in two sweethearts who are, let’s face it, the epitome of awesome we call it “engagement session perfection.” See every last lovely moment captured by Jacqueline Elizabeth Photography right here.
From Jacqueline Elizabeth Photography… The day of Rachèle and Beau’s engagement session there was a heavy snowfall warning in the mountains. We went back and forth about whether or not to reschedule, and decided to go for it and I’m so glad we did. Even though we had to drive through a blizzard, this is one of my favourite engagement sessions to date. Not only did she wear a gold sequin dress (have I mentioned my love for gold sequin dresses!?), but the two of them together are ridiculously cute. Definitely worth the embarrassingly high amount of times we all fell in the snow, haha.

I adore this vow renewal for SO many reasons – it’s gorgeous, of course, and inspired by my favorite move of ALL time, Love Actually, but it is also a fabulous reminder of what marriage is all about. The ups, the downs, the not so pretty parts that make you stronger and stronger year after year. This couple encompasses all of that in their stunning, “all them” renewal planned by Birds & Honey Events, and every gorgeous image captured by Katch Studios is waiting for you here.

From the Bride…Where do I even begin? This is a bit of a long one ladies so please bear with me. 2013 was a year of many ups and many downs. It was also the year my father passed away so sometimes the downs get a little too much to deal with. The one thing that has always been constant in my life is my relationship with my husband. It is a relationship that I cherish more than anything in this world. It is a relationship filled with unconditional love, respect and support. It isn’t a cheesy relationship by any means. It is full of color, depth & emotion. We have days like anyone else where we don’t want to be in the same room and the very sight of the other person just makes you want to scream. We have days where we are sitting in silence, watching TV and holding hands and cant help but blush when the other glances over. We also have days where one of us falls apart and completely breaks down into darkness…this is where the other acts as not only a spouse but a true angel. For me, my husband has been that angel…constantly saving me from this darkness. The darkness that I speak of has been a life long, turbulent relationship with my father and when he passed away the world seemed to just come at a stop for me. My husband saw sides of me that I never wanted anyone to see. He never judged me, he never forced me to just “get over it”. He held my hand through it and showed me what the meaning of love was. Love doesn’t just happen on your wedding day. Love is a constant reminder we experience on a regular basis every day in our lives.
When it came time to our wedding anniversary my husband told me he wanted to renew our vows. This A) shocked me to the core because my husband is a bit of a manly man and B) We had only been married for 3 years. When I asked my husband why, this is what he told me: “Mona, It may be 3 years of marriage, but this date also represents the 10 years we have been together as a couple (our wedding anniversary is also our dating anniversary). Our wedding was full of pleasing everyone else. It wasn’t what we ever wanted. I just want it to be me and you kissing under a tree” When I heard this, I couldn’t help but tear up. Happy tears of course. I am always on edge about what people will think about us but I decided to just go with the flow without any worries in the world. I could care less what others thought of us because we only get one shot in this world, and we should spend it doing what makes us happy and my husband makes me very happy =) being a wedding planner I could have easily gone all out with flowers galore and even a new wedding dress but I didn’t want an actual reenactment of our wedding day, I just wanted the quiet setting I had always dreamed of. Something along the lines of a romantic elopement, Maybe with some balloons as our backdrop and some hand written vows like in the movie Love Actually. I wore a custom made tutu and a vintage sweater..topped it off with some gorgeous heels and I was ready to go. My hubby rocked a Hugo Boss suit and looked even more handsome than on our wedding day. Weddings and vow renewals at the core are such a sweet and intimate moments and sometimes you just need to listen to your heart and go with the flow. Everything else with fall perfectly into place.
