It was the perfect day for a Sleigh Ride
Elopement Wedding at Lake Louise.
The ceremony took place at the back of Lake Louise
with the Chateau Lake Louise in the background.
Christine & Barry chose a Simply Wonderful Sleigh Wedding,
intimate and very romantic!
Love this photograph of Christine and her beautiful veil - Stunning!
When we arrived at the Post Hotel, the room was full of laughter as
Suzanne was preparing Christine's hair and make up.
Barry was relaxed as he watched his beautiful bride get ready for their special day.
The ladies were having fun.
Barry's turn to get ready and Sharon (the wedding planner) pinned in his boutonniere.
Christine's fresh flower bouquet was hand tied by Forget-Me-Not Flowers in Banff.
In the lobby of the Post Hotel, Alex interviewed Barry for their wedding video.
The vanilla wedding cake was beautifully displayed,
to be enjoyed in their room later with a glass of champagne.
Meanwhile, back in the hotel room, Christine was ready to put on her dress,
and Sharon assisted by lacing it up.
Christine looked Fantastic!
She was perfect like a princess.
Barry patiently waited in the comfortable lobby for his gorgeous bride to arrive.
It is a very special moment when a groom sees his bride for the first time.
The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season.
Christine & Barry made their way out to the sleigh and meet the rest of the wedding team.
Harp Angel - Deborah Nyack had carefully loaded her antique Harp onto the sleigh
and Rob White our marriage commissioner was assisting us in ensuring it had a safe ride.
Brewster Adventures at Lake Louise offer hourly sleigh rides all winter long.
Off we go into the Winter Wonderland - so romantic!
Christine & Barry snuggled together, relaxed and enjoyed
the moment leading up to their wedding ceremony.
When we arrived at the back of Lake Louise we had an amazing view.
Behind the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise
you can clearly see the Lake Louise Ski Area.
Deborah is a world Class Harpist and a good sport.
Her vintage harp is over 100 years old and I am sure
it was the first time it had been to the back of Lake Louise.
As Christine & Barry made their way from the sleigh to the ceremony area
we had a lovely view of the frozen waterfall behind them.
Rob White performed a beautiful outdoor ceremony,
surrounded by the majestic mountains at Lake Louise.
Deborah added a magical touch to the ceremony with her beautiful harp music.
Christine looked so vibrant and happy, of course,
she had just married the man of her dreams!

Our married couple gets ready for the ride back to the Chateau Lake Louise.
Wishing Christine and Barry a lifetime of love and happiness together.
Thanks for letting us be part of your special day!
