EDITOR’S LETTER

Oh, Canada! As one of the few born and raised Canadians on the Rocky Mountain Bride team, I feel profoundly honored to represent the Canadian Rockies and the talented creatives that make weddings and love stories in our region pure magic. The landscape that makes up the Canadian Rockies is as diversely beautiful as the creatives that call it home, and I am so blessed to have been able to travel throughout Alberta and British Columbia to see some of the very best our country has to offer the wedding industry.

timeless & romantic c a l g a r y, a l b e r t a

This magazine is a culmination of so much heart, talent and passion. From curated soirees to touching love stories and honeymoon adventures, I hope these pages help you to find inspiration for your own wedding day, and encourages you to reminisce on your own extraordinary Rocky Mountain love story. Happy planning! xx

Taylor + Nicholas k o o t e n ay l a k e , b r i t i s h c o l u m b i a


cover story

Kara Hockley captured the dreamiest part of Nicholas and Taylor’s wedding day. As the pair stood on the edge of Kootenay Lake for their first look, they shared their intimate vows in a moment they will remember forever. Straight from a Nicholas Sparks novel, the two spent a sweet summer together at 16 and found themselves back in each other’s arms eight years later. Soft touches of navy, blush and gold, along with the bride’s captivating Made with Love gown, set the bohemian tone for the special day. “Drunk in love,” read the little bottle of La Marca prosecco that adorned each guest’s seat. Truly a day to remember, the new Mr. and Mrs. said their “I dos” and danced under the stars as they started their very own forever.

“My favorite moment was when Nick and I read each other our own written vows at our first look. We wanted to share something special before the ceremony.�

Kelsey + Greg banff, ab

Picture a beautiful ceremony, set with the backdrop of snow-dusted mountains and brilliant blue skies. This was Kelsey and Greg’s wedding day, situated on the Whyte Museum Grounds of the Canadian Rockies in beautiful Banff, AB. Tall trees cascaded behind the couple as they said their “I dos” in front of those closest to them. The pair wanted to showcase the breathtaking beauty of the Rocky Mountains, a place that they have loved visiting throughout their relationship. Kelsey and Greg always dreamt of dancing the night away with their guests in the shadows of the mountains under the stars. Now, the Rocky Mountains will hold an even more special place in their hearts as it holds memories of their most perfect day.

ADVICE FROM THE BRIDE

“We really tried to make the day as relaxing and enjoyable as possible for ourselves as well as our guests. We worked hard to streamline the day so that we got to spend as much time as possible with each other and our guests.”

FROM THIS MOMENT ON The couple’s first look was the most memorable of the day. Greg remembers standing amongst the trees with his back towards Kelsey. As she walked up behind him, a strange silence fell over everything. Greg couldn’t help but cry as he heard the approaching footsteps of his soon-to-be wife. The moment personified all of the love, happiness and joy that would exude from their special day.

ADVICE FROM THE BRIDE “Stay true to you and your vision every single day throughout your planning process, and continue to discuss what is important to keep it in the forefront of your mind! On your actual wedding day, make sure that you choose three moments to spend as just the two of you…it’s so important to take a step back and soak it all in!”

Elizabeth + Daniel fa i r m o n t h o t s p r i n g s , b c

Elizabeth and Daniel’s story began at the Royal Mayfair Golf Course in May 2015. What started out as a simple round of golf turned into a picturesque fairytale. The couple’s new chapter began where everything first started, on a golf course, followed by some celebratory margaritas. Their Rocky Mountain wedding came together beautifully, rooted in the Columbia Valley, with the help of Mountain Bride planner Lisa Grosso. The soaring mountainscape and dainty details set the stage for the perfect alpine wedding. Guests danced the night away under the moonlit sky at the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort, and capped the night off with his and hers chocolates of salted caramel and orange flavours.

A POCKET FULL OF DAISIES

The bride’s exquisite Made with Love gown and cathedral length Blue Willow veil added a touch of romanticism to the rugged setting. The groom’s botanical tie, made by Dazi, matched the greenery and lush landscape of British Columbia. To tie everything together, The Romantiks created floral masterpieces, including a one-of-a-kind arch adorned with pastel-coloured roses and peonies.

Kayla + Tony kelowna, bc

S

Kayla and Tony always dreamed of getting married in the Okanagan. It’s one of the most beautiful places in the world and somewhere the couple continued finding themselves coming back to. Nicole Lavroff of Dreamy Events made everything possible for the happy couple, during a crazy year of wedding planning, house purchases and relocations out to the West Coast. Traditional Ukranian ceremonies, heartfelt speeches and a yummy midnight snacks made for the idyllic beginning to the couple’s forever.

Kathryn Bass Bridal, BHLDN and Vera Wang helped to suit the entire bridal party in the gowns and suits of their dreams with a hint of Old Hollywood glamour. Walking into the candlelit set up at Summerhill Pyramid Winery and seeing each other for the first time was made more special by a quote the couple holds dear. “I love you for all that you are, all that you have been, all that you are yet to be.�

Jessica + Braydon calgary, ab

A small rain storm cleared the smoke for Jessica and Braydon’s idyllic wedding at Bow Valley Ranche in Calgary. The breathtaking landscape of Fish Creek Provincial Park provides the venue with a rustic feel, instilling a genuine comfort in the hearts of the couple’s guests. There’s no better location to remind the bride and groom of what the future holds - a home and life full of warmth and joy.


ab real wedding

SOMETHING BORROWED Jessica’s bridal details featured a family heirloom - a veil from her older sister that has been passed around the family three times. Her Theia Couture wedding dress from Pearl & Dot was feminine and charming with intricate lace, cream tulle and a satin bow tied in the back. Maison Birks earrings from Jessica’s mother and Manolo Blahnik heels completed the outfit, exuding an air of storybook elegance.

S T O RY B O O K E N D I N G Jessica and Braydon envisioned a whimsical, dream-like wedding full of intimacy, fun and warmth. The couple’s parents found handwritten notes on their seats as an expression of gratitude. Jessica walked down the aisle to her brother-in-law’s rendition of “Lullaby” by the Dixie Chicks. To top off the night, the entire venue was filled with the sounds of guests singing Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” It all culminated into a day that Jessica and Braydon would never forget.

Debbie Wong Design put the finishing touches on the couple’s wedding, with dreamy calligraphy that evoked a tender feel. Fall for Florals had every guest swooning with the designer’s arrangements of pastel-coloured roses and pretty greenery that adorned the venue. The DIY donut wall fulfilled everyone’s wildest dreams and late-night cravings.
