Marianne & Aaron’s July Banff Springs Hotel wedding is the perfect example of a classic, elegant affair. So often an attempt at ‘simple elegance’ comes out feeling more like ‘bare’. You can take cues from this wedding as to how to create the perfect simple yet still elegant decor! Classic details included the a string trio for the ceremony, the beautiful Chuppah with floral garland, Marianne’s soft sheath gown, a deep Blue Rolls Royce, and floral stationery from the Rifle paper company.
We also loved how they added some personal touches! The ceremony was presided over by two dear friends and written by Marianne & Aaron with Jewish wedding traditions woven throughout. The couple hired a mountie to greet their guests after the ceremony, a real treat for a group from the United States! Barry Shaw provided a jazz trio for swanky dinner music, and then picked it up in the evening with a with a full band – just perfect for a choreographed first dance and a lively Horrah!
