Imagine shooting a wedding in Narnia with a magical couple that wanted to go everywhere you wanted to go despite lower than zero temperatures and walking on frozen lakes and waterfalls. The Fairmont Springs in Banff is exactly such a place and Kenton + Lauren are exactly that magical couple. This place is completely indescribable. It literally takes your breath away. As a California based couple, Lauren and Kenton had seen the venue rather randomly on Instagram back when they were dating and Kenton had suggested on the spot they be married there.. except they weren’t engaged yet. So Prince Charming had his castle and his princess and only one thing left to do… (told you they were magic) was GET ENGAGED.
Honestly it is strange to think how it all came together so well. The venue was absolutely perfect, it not only looks like a castle but they make you feel like royalty too. The weather, having been a bit snowy off and on had us on pins and needles, we really had no idea what to expect. After a quick first look we all hopped into a car heading to some of the couples favorite spots from previous visits. We literally could have spent days just shooting, laughing and having the best time… but reluctantly we made our way back to the venue to deliver them for wedding time (with all our fingers and toes despite feeling as though we had lost a few).
A beautiful wedding and brilliant time dancing, sharing stories and laughs and celebrating these two would be had the remainder of the night. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day and story book ending at that.
We would be remiss if didn’t also mention just how grateful we were of Lauren and Kenton’s choice of vendors but specially need to mention their planner. Aimsley (info at bottom) did an absolute bang up job making us feel welcome in Canada, being a package sherpa for us, arming us with the best spots one could imagine and generally being an absolute treasure. Flowers, Make-up, Cake, DJ etc.. all were equally talented and helped produce a magical day.
Anna and I wish you both the absolute best in life and love!
