We’re beyond excited to share Chanel & Chris’ beautiful Banff wedding with you that’s featured in the Summer/Fall 2015 issue of WedLuxe Magazine on newsstands today! The couple were married in the spring of 2014 at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, Canada’s “Castle in the Rockies.” Derek MacDonald from Boom Goes The Drum provided event design and full-service planning for the elegant yet modern, fairytale-like celebration.
Chanel wore an exquisite Elie Saab haute couture gown purchased in Paris. Calgary-based fashion retailer Courtney Kos of Ette has an existing relationship with the acclaimed fashion house and assisted with the process. The soft peach-coloured ball gown featured sheer detailing on the arms and was embellished with sequins, beads, and floral appliqués. The couture creation left our team in total awe! Her lace pumps and clutch were also custom-designed by Elie Saab, and Designing on the Edge created her composite flower bouquet made with over twenty ivory vendela roses.
One of our favourite details of the celebration was the playful set of inflatable swan that were included in the wedding party photos—from Taylor Swift to Khloe Kardashian, the swan floats are currently having a major moment on Instagram! Chanel mentioned to photographer Phil Crozier of Photophilcro that she always dreamed of having swans at her wedding as a little girl—an almost impossible task at a spring wedding hosted in Alberta. As a surprise to the bride, Phil brought the blow-up swans as a fun, editorial twist on her childhood dream.
You can learn more about Chanel and Chris’ day in our current issue, the ultra-luxe wedding is featured in both the Eastern and Western Canada editions.
