Today’s inspiration shoot is set against the beautiful backdrop of Lake Louise in Calgary, Canada and features a rich berry colour palette teamed with drop dead gorgeous florals and pretty details galore.
J’adore Decor Styling & Event Planning shares the inspiration behind it:
“The nature and beauty of our location was what assisted in the inspiration of our shoot. The Château is elegant yet aged, warm and is surrounded by the most beautiful views in Canada! With the colder weather sneaking up on us, we wanted to incorporate warmer and deeper colour tones, as well as keep within the natural greens and browns of the forest.
The colour scheme and the prevalence of fresh roses from Jess at Willow & Whimsy is carried throughout the shoot.
Like the ceremony we wanted to pull from the natural elements surrounding the Fairmont which are displayed not only in the breathtaking floral arrangements provided by Willow & Whimsy, but also in the natural wood of the display box and the leather runner. The hand-dipped rose gold utensils and candlesticks, patterned china and enchanted mauve wooden chargers, help to portray that feeling of timeless elegance that the Château Lake Louise embodies.
Overall the day of our shoot was incredible! The weather although at first was a little scary and uncooperative, it eventually was a blessing in disguise and was a calming and complimenting effect to the already beautiful scenery of Lake Louise.
Fur and leather played a large role in the masculine yet warm and cozy feel, where as rose gold adds that touch of elegance and glamour. Laura from Cozy Cottage Interiors, helped us achieve our vision by providing us with various antiques that were present in all staged areas.
From the invite and menu to the name cards and signage, Kimberly from Paper Panache encompassed all of the elements in our vision for the stationary. Masculine touches are really felt in the sun room off of the main hall where a scotch and cigar bar was set up. From the mini cake favours to the fudge pops and scotch & cigars, there are elements of fun for all guests.
The Victoria Room at the Fairmont has the perfect stone patio area for an outdoor ceremony with the natural beauty of the Canadian Rockies and the crystal blue Lake.
The arbour we made from aged logs and our vision for a floral string backdrop, as well as the corner arrangements, were brought to life by our florist, Willow & Whimsy. We wanted to incorporate wood to compliment the forest surrounding the venue, as well as marry the simplicity and nature with it’s breathtaking scenery.”
