It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and if you’re anything like us, it’s festive everything from here on through the end of the year, so when this winter wonderland wedding captured by Justine Milton landed on our desk, you bet we were all kinds of giddy. Think rich shades of red, a beautiful bride in an elegant Watters gown, an enchanting castle in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, and a fresh coat of snow. Yup – pretty much holiday wedding perfection.
From the Bride… We based our wedding theme around the location and season. The Banff Springs Hotel speaks for itself – it is a timeless and traditional castle located in the breathtaking Canadian Rocky Mountains – and we knew we had to pay homage to that with an overall elegant theme with some rustic touches. We chose a winter wedding and picked warm, rich colours to complement that: golds and creams with some splashes of burgundy and French blue.
We met in high school, but we didn’t actually start dating until we reconnected at a bar in our hometown. We went on a couple of dates and the rest is history! We got engaged on a trip to Hong Kong – we were having a cocktail at a bar on the 118th floor of a high rise, and he completely surprised me when he got down on one knee as we were looking out at the spectacular cityscape. I couldn’t believe he flew all that way with the ring, but we both love traveling and it is something that brings us together, so it was perfect!
