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!
