Fairmont Banff Springs Outdoor Wedding
As a Calgary Wedding Photographer I mostly shoot in the metro area, but this year I have been blessed with several weddings in the mountains. Yesterday was an absolute fairytale! Alicia + Daniel were married at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel on the terrace surrounded by their closest family and friends. This location is stunning and I absolutely love shooting here. They incorporated many touching tributes and special Chinese traditions, which included cutting locks of each other’s hair to bind with a ceremonial thread. The weather was absolutely perfect which made for a lovely ceremony and photographs. Alicia + Daniel are two very special people who are so lucky to have found each other. Alicia was born in Shanghai and Daniel in Beijing. They both moved to Canada with their families, where in 2011 they met and fell in love. There are so many things that must fall perfectly into place for any couple to make it to this point in their lives, and for Alicia + Daniel this was particularly true. Their wedding was so unique, but we shot in one of my favourite spots that I’ve photographed at before. Alicia + Daniel have been featured on my website before in their engagement session!
How does a wedding photographer portray the style and personality of the couple?
Their wedding reception was beautifully designed by Alicia and coordinated by the talented Calgary Wedding Planner Lisa Grosso of Mountain Bride. Everything about this fete was totally on point! Romantic soft pinks and corals were contrasted by touches of gold and crisp whites that was inspired by Pinterest. The florals were by Canmore Wedding Florist F2 Floral Fashion and absolutely stunning! Our wedding photo experience featured a long and fun hike into the forest as well as some mountain vistas. Looking in depth at Alicia’s planning on Pinterest as well as shooting their engagement session and constant communication allowed me to really understand who Alicia + Daniel are and how I was going to portray them in their images. It was important to include activities and locations that were of personal significance to them both. We had so much fun taking these photos, we didn’t want the experience to end. We are so excited to share a sneak peek with you here!
