Romantic Wedding at the Banff Springs Hotel

Throwing a luxury wedding in the Rocky Mountains isn’t as easy as it sounds. After all – no matter what you’re doing, you’re competing with some of the most amazing views on earth. It’s a part of human nature – our eyes are drawn to the jagged peaks drawn in the sky. But with the right vision, the right planner, the right photographer – a luxurious rocky mountain wedding is possible! Today on the blog, we are thrilled to show off Amber and Wayne’s incredible Real Wedding, photographed by Rocky Mountain wedding photographer Kim Payant Photography and planned by Calgary wedding planner Lynn Fletcher Weddings, Amber’s dress is absolutely ENVIOUS (not a phrase we take lightly!!) and exquisite decor details make this wedding one for the record books. Hear more from the bride and meet the entire Creative Team after the jump!

From the bride:

Our wedding theme was “old world Arabesque” and our colours were gold and blush pink. Amber chose that theme because we met in Kuwait, where Amber lived for 9 years and Wayne lived for 3 years. I love the Arabic décor and design and gold plays a central part in Arabic weddings and blush pink matches well with gold. I also paired that with an ‘old world’ theme, as Amber loves history and we were getting married in Canada’s castle, the Banff Springs Hotel.
