It’s hard to believe there could ever be a more breathtaking backdrop than the Alberta Rockies. These uber-gorgeous (+ seriously majestic) mountains are awe-inspiring in every which way – and they add an insane amount of pretty to every wedding they come in contact with. So, when I saw them peeking out from this beautiful Canmore affair, there was an instant smile on my face. One that could only be brought on by nature’s beauty, an adorable duo and fabulous images captured by Karmen Meyer Photography. See them all here.
From the Bride… Picking the right venue was one of our top priorities as we started to plan our wedding day. We fell in love with Canmore in our years of dating and the trips we would make there each year. With the gorgeous mountain views all around us we couldn’t have been happier with the setting! We were also grateful that Mother Nature was looking upon our day as we had such warm and sunny weather… a rarity in the Alberta Rockies for the time of year. With the sun beaming down and as we both said our “I Do’s” it was such a magical day!
The theme for our wedding was natural and elegant, incorporating branches and rocks for several of the decorations and centerpieces. We chose charcoal grey and accents of yellow and white to dress our lovely wedding party, flowers, as well as the linens inside the venue. The Canmore Golf and Curling Club provided us with a great backdrop of the mountaintops with floor to ceiling windows around the room. It was important that we kept traditions for the wedding but also added in our own unique touches. Thanks to numerous wedding blogs and internet hunting we managed to pull off quite a few DIY projects. We made a wishing tree for our guest book, letting our guests add a leaf or two about marriage and fun memories they had from the day. Also to let our guests get a glimpse of our lives before the engagement we had a slideshow playing on the TV’s around the room.
The day was so fun and flew by before we knew it! We all danced our feet off and made so many memories that will never be forgotten. Looking forward to the years of love and marriage yet to come!
