Cole + Greg| Rimrock Resort Wedding | Banff, Alberta, Canada

Cole called us just 3 weeks before his & Greg’s wedding at the Rimrock Resort in Banff. After looking at all of the logistics, they realized how much better their experience would be if they had professional event managers onsite! We were able to work with Cole to get all of the details confirmed and finalized, and I think you can tell from the photos these two had an amazing wedding day. Cole & Greg did all of their own design work – and we were especially excited to see a Gatsby styled wedding at the Rimrock ( perfect fit don’t you think??). One thing I especially adored from this wedding was the ‘pay it forward’ favour board. Instead of gifting their guests favours, Cole & Greg asked each guest to share a charity that was personally meaningful, and they’ll be donating to each of them. Charities like the Foothilsl NICU, the Calgary Humane Society, and Doctors without Borders will all be receiving donations! A special thank-you to Stephanie Couture for taking the time to share these lovely images with us!

Time to plan your Banff Christmas Party!

So, with Snowtember in full force ( if you’re not in the area you may not be aware that we’ve received over a foot of snow in the past 24 hours) , we thought it would be the perfect time to remind you that we plan seriously unique Banff Christmas Parties. If you’ve been wracking your brain for something a bit different this year, you’ve come to the right place!

Our Holiday party planning services have lots of similarities to what we do best with weddings – creating really unique mountain experiences that fit your style and budget. Instead of the same dinner and dance, what about creating a skating party complete with a gourmet hot cocoa station, followed by a fondue evening? Or a dogsledding adventure in the mountains complete with a winter picnic? If you’ve got a staff full of foodies we’d love to bring in a sommelier to sabre a bottle of champagne followed by a 5 course tasting menu! The ideas are endless!

Our party planning services include full concept creation and logistical execution. We’ll work with you to find a venue, organize transportation, plan any activities, select menus, and find entertainment fits your concept.

It’s time to start planning holiday fun in the mountains – get in touch with us today at hello@postcardweddings, or at 888-959-2656!

Thanks to the lovely team over at One Edition Photos for letting us steal this snapshot this morning!

Banff Christmas Party

 

Jana + Glenn | Moraine Lake Elopement | Lake Louise, Canada

Jana + Glenn had seriously the most picturesque Moraine Lake Elopement this July. 2014 feels a bit like the year of the elopement at Postcard Weddings & Events. We’ve done a few in the past, but this year I have fallen hopelessly in love with Elopements & Intimate weddings. You might be thinking ” the whole point of an elopement is to keep it simple, why the heck would you hire a wedding planner?”. Well, Jana & Glenn are the perfect example of how we can make your elopement a walk in the park ( in theis case, a National Park!).

Jana contacted us at the end of May, and after a chat to get a really good idea of what was important to her & Glenn, we had a proposal to her within the day. That means instead of Jana spending weeks googling and trying to figure out who to hire, and how much it would cost, we had those details to her in less than a work day! Once they had booked with us, we had a meeting and chatted all about locations, dates, marriage comissioners, photography, hair & make-up, flowers, welcome gifts, timing & logistics. For some items we sent Jana & Glenn some options, and other elements we knew right away who the best fit would be. Jana sent us images of some of the design elements we discussed, and we were off to the races. In a little over a week, the majority of the details for Jana & Glenn’s wedding were booked ( umm, thats right, a week planning a wedding!). Over the next few months we connected on little details, and right before the wedding we confirmed all vendors, got a timeline to Jana & Glenn, and prepared the most awesome welcome baskets for their parents.

The night before the wedding Krista got in touch with the hair & make-up artists to let them know Jana’s room number. Krista was onsite for their wedding, she delivered flowers and the welcome baskets. She was also able to pow-wow with Raf from One Edition and Robin White to go over a last minute location decision ( of course it was raining!). All Jana & Glenn had to do was arrive and enjoy themselves!

We were just so smitten with how sweet and simple Jana & Glenn kept their wedding. I’m sure you’ll agree that the Moraine Lake location they selected was seriously SPECTACULAR. Jana’s gown was stunning, Jenna at Canmore Banff Make-up Artistry, and Jordanna from JK Hair Design pampered Jana with professional hair & make-up services, and the vibrant bouquet from Willow Flower Company was such a beautiful element. Jana & Glenn really connected with Meg & Raf from One Edition Photography, they really were the perfect match. And Robin White did a warm relaxed ceremony on the shores of the Moraine Lake.

We had originally booked Jana, Glenn & thier family dinner reservations at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Fairview Dining room, but upon arrival they discovered they had been upgraded to the spectacular Belvedere Suite, so they chose to have a cozy in room dining experience. Calm, casual, relaxed, stunning scenery and a seriously awesome team of wedding vendors. It was the perfect day!

If you’re thinking of eloping at Moraine Lake (or anywhere in the Canadian Rockies) get in touch at hello@postcardwedding.com ! We’d love to chat about how we can work with you!

Alison + Jay | Silvertip Resort Winter Wedding | Canmore, Alberta, Canada

At this Silvertip Resort Winter Wedding, the mountains were once again perfect for the bride and groom’s wedding day. Beautiful weather, amazing views, and two awesome personalities kept the day exciting, personal, and full of love.

Alison and Jay loved the idea of having lots of their friends and family with them to enjoy their special day! They wanted their wedding to be fun, relaxed, and filled with decor with a natural feel. Flower Artistry‘s Lyn Chapman really captured this with the gorgeous centerpieces; lanterns and tall vases filled with moss, thistles and peonies. The fabric flower bouquets by Down the Well Designs were perfect for a winter wedding. They can last through all the photos and weather! Instead of the traditional wedding cake, Alison and Jay decided to have a chocolate sculpture, beautifully made by Le Chocolatier, adding their personality to their wedding. Their friends and families were very important to them, and played a large role in their wedding day. Jay’s father made them an amazing card box with horseshoes propping the lid open, and a family friend did Alison’s and her bridesmaid’s make-up. This carefree, non-traditional couple had tons of fun, and their long head table made certain that they could see each and every one of their guests who came to celebrate with them.
