This modern Canmore mountain wedding is special to us at Canadian Mountain Chic. You might remember, Breanne and Tristan from their fun, picnic engagement session we featured last year.

Breanne and Tristan are a super sweet, awesome couple and once again they teamed up with Banff wedding photographer, Kim Payant Photography, and Canmore wedding planner, Naturally Chic. The result was a gorgeous day for this amazing couple! This pretty wedding is loaded with wedding inspiration for modern mountain wedding.

Breanne is an event planner with a penchant for modern aesthetics. The Grande Rockies Resort in Canmore, Alberta was a perfect fit for her modern Canmore mountain wedding. Breanne wanted to a little glam too and the Grande Rockies Penthouse suite fit perfectly for her pre-wedding activities.

The couple chose shades of purple and ivory for their wedding couples. Breanne wanted the room to look elegant, so chose two different table cloths that had a touch of shimmer. She used small touches of purple with the menu / thank you card and centerpieces. The space looked elegant and classic without being overly purple.

From the Bride:

CMC ” What were your top three moments of the day?”

Bride: – “Our first look. It was a really special moment because it was just the two of us. Being such a busy day it was so nice to have a few minutes just the two of us could share. It was also the perfect opportunity to show Tristan that I had his ring engraved with our wedding date and our song, Better Together.

When my veil flew off during the ceremony. It was a windy day and I had trouble keeping my veil on during our photos but really wanted to wear it as I walked down the aisle. Mid way through the ceremony it came off and flew towards our guests, thankfully someone caught it. Everyone laughed and I joked that this was in lieu of having a bouquet toss. It was a funny moment and helped us to relax.

Reception dance. We had the best dance party. Everyone was on the dance floor the whole night. It was so much fun. The floor was packed until it was time for the music to turn off.

Our wedding song.  Jack Johnson, Better Together. This was the song that Tristan chose to play when he proposed.” ~ Breanne

CMC – What were your top three wedding details?

Bride: “Centerpieces. I thought they were so beautiful. I told our florist I wanted a mix of succulents and flowers in shades of purple and white. Our wedding coordinator made wooden boxes and gold table number signs. I was so impressed how it all came together.

Sweets table. The sweets were delicious and the table looked great. I had ordered a mix of cookies, cupcakes and a small wedding cake that matched our colours. After a three course dinner I wanted to offer our guests an opportunity to have something little sweet if they wanted.

My dress. I love my dress. I had been looking for something fitted at the top with a full skirt and just the right amount of sparkle. When I found this dress I knew it was perfect. I bought the dress in Winnipeg before I moved to Calgary, so the dress has extra special significance because I bought it with my family in my hometown.”

CMC – Tell us about your wedding professionals:

Bride: Photographer – ” Great to work with and very talented. Love our photos, I would highly recommend.”

Dress Boutique – ” 7th Avenue Fashions is a great shop, very friendly and helpful staff. They always remembered us when we came in and went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of and happy. Highly recommend.”

Cake/Sweets – “Really delicious treats and lots of options to choose from and ways to personalize.  ”

Wedding Planner – “Great to work with had lots of ideas to help me achieve my vision.”

DJ – “Awesome DJ. Played great music that kept our guests dancing all night, the dance floor was packed. ”

From Modern Photography:

“Julie and Doug’s gorgeous winter wedding was held in Canmore at Murrieta’s. Although it was a cold November day, it was perfectly workable and provided for some magical moments.

The anticipation of the ‘First Glance’ is always a great way to start the day. From there we made our way to several of my favourite spots around Canmore. Most noticeable was a completely unexpected scene. Any time I see fog or mist, I always think about how lovely it would be to shoot a session in it, but rarely am I that lucky. But on Julie and Doug’s special day, we were all that lucky. To top it off, the mist rose from the river just as the sun was setting, giving way to a glorious pink and purple sky.

Once creatives were finished, we headed to Murrietas, which is fast becoming one of my absolute favourite venues in Canmore. Most of the weddings I do there utilize the cozy, casual vibe and do food stations to encourage movement and mingling. I can always tell that the guests really, really enjoy it. Plus, the food is just the best! It’s Murrietas after all. The night was capped with a hilarious, perfect bride and maid flash-mob to “teach me how to dougie”. It was difficult to remember to shoot. It was highly entertaining and one of my all-time favourite wedding moments for sure.” ~ Sarah | Modern Photography

Canmore Winter Wedding

This Canmore winter wedding from Jennifer Bergman Weddings is simply perfect! We’ve come to expect some amazing weddings from JBW and this wedding is no exception.

Maureen and Tyler were married in the beautiful Canadian Rockies town of Canmore. With a fresh dusting of snow and bluebird skies, the scene was set for some spectacular photos from Midnightea Photography.

The couple’s dream was to have a timeless, elegant winter wedding reflective of the mountains. They chose a neutral color palette of nude tones and blush paired with metallics. The rustic mountain venue, complete with wood beams and stone fireplace, provided the foundation for the perfect, cozy winter wedding. Add in wood harvest tables, romantic details, the most adorable dog, an ice cream sundae bar and gorgeous flowers from faBLOOMosity and you know it’s going to be fabulous!

Maureen and Tyler’s wedding weekend started with a cocktail reception at the Grande Rockies Resort penthouse and culminated in a gorgeous affair at the Silvertip Resort.

“Canmore is such a magical place in the winter and played a perfect backdrop to celebrate our day. Our wedding was the perfect representation of us as a couple and we re-live it daily through our stunning photos and vivid memories.

Best advice: You only get to do this once, so do it your way. Make it your perfect and never lose sight of why you’re so in love.”

Today we’re featuring a beautiful Canmore wedding from Kim Payant Photography. With classic mountain, fall scenery and lot’s of DIY elements, Breanne and Eric’s wedding was picture perfect. The bride, Breanne, is also a graphic designer so doing her own stationery was a must! I love when couple’s interject their personalities into their wedding, and what better way than with lots of DIY! I’m also a huge fan of intimate weddings with your closest family and friends present. This wedding has it all!

Canmore mountain wedding from Kim Payant Photography (www.kimpayantphotography.com

The couple wanted a rustic mountain wedding but wanted to avoid the typical fall colors of red, orange and brown. Instead they decided on a color palette with hints of jewel tones; emerald green, sapphire blue and deep purple. The colors perfectly complemented the surrounding Canmore mountain scenery.

“We’ve always loved what we call “Northern” decor such as exposed wood, mountains, pinecones, plaid and burlap. Because of this, we easily settled having a destination wedding in Canmore, AB to be surrounded by the beautiful nature we love so much.

After seeing photos online from another wedding, The Bear and Bison Inn was a no-brainer – this was exactly the place we had been looking for!

From the Couple:

What were your top three wedding moments?

“The View/Location: After seeing photos online from another wedding, The Bear and Bison Inn was a no-brainer – this was exactly the place we had been looking for! Although we knew what beauty was in store, nothing compares to actually being surrounded by it in person. I always have people telling me how lovely our photos are an how it looks like we’ve been photoshopped into the landscape.

Saying I do: One of our top moments has to be saying “I do” to each other. After years of waiting, finally being married to the one we love was the most special part of our day.

Having our Family Share Our Special Day:  We knew that having a destination wedding meant that not everyone we would liked to have come to the wedding could make it. To have our close family be able to join us on our special day really made us feel at home even though we were so far away.
