I’m thrilled to share with you this amazing Canadiana wedding inspiration by Cory Christopher. He’s a top Canadian designer, community supporter and philanthropist. (Yay for giving back :)) based out of Edmonton, but spends much time in the beloved mountains creating and designing weddings & events.
We were honoured to be chosen to work with Cory for an inspirational photo shoot to be featured in the latest edition of Luxe magazine (by Calgary Bride). Cory designed the concept, decor and florals, and I think you’ll agree it’s absolutely amazing, eh? 😉
Since the theme is Canadiana, the shoot took place at the super-Canadian setting of Lake Louise. Truly, does it get more Canadiana then Lake Louise? It’s one of the most iconic, bucket-list lakes in the world. We’ve so so lucky to live nearby and be able to photograph our couples in such a truly AWEsome (in every sense of the word) location.
Cory’s been sharing these photos over on his Instagram so be sure to head on over and follow his page for these and other inspirational ideas. The man’s creativity and talent knows no end!
The stunning cakes are by Cake Sensations. Seriously, the birchwood looks sooo real (you’ll see). Just incredible. Justine Ma of Justine Ma Design & Hand Lettering provided the gorge hand lettering you see in the ‘stationery’ (aka rocks and wood). Again, does it get more Canadiana?
Side note: I took a calligraphy course with Justine and not only is she one of the sweetest, kindest and awesomest people I’ve met, but also, is she ever an incredible teacher! Check out her workshops.
The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Victoria Terrace offered a perfect setting for the stunning table, as did the woodland around the hotel. The view from inside the Victoria Ballroom completed our Canadiana adventure at Lake Louise, with the lake itself featuring prominently, of course!
Cory and Raf had lots of fun finding ways to incorporate the lake too, getting all creative with ideas to float things and play around in the glacial waters of Lake Louise. (There may have been a bit of off-camera falling in the lake, too, as they got so into their creative play zone!)
Thank you, Cory, for your beauty vision for this wonderfully and delightfully Canadiana wedding inspiration at Lake Louise. Thank you to the amazing team, and thank you Luxe by Calgary Bride. #Canadiana
