Nadia + Brian | Kananaskis Elopement


The Vibe
Where do we even start with these two, other than to say they are absolutely lovely, so sweet and were so excited to get married! Nadia + Brian live in the US and came to Kananaskis for a true elopement - just the two of them and the mountains.

The Design
We’ve said it many times before - but we have the best clients! N+B let us lead the design for the day and we were so excited! We added a bit of color into the tablescape, some deep pops of purple and even a plate with a pattern (who even are we right now?!).

The Planning
We focused on giving N+B the best ‘reception’ we could imagine - an intimate picnic in the mountains for two. After their ceremony in the forest, we set up a picnic in the banks of a small river for them - complete with a charcuterie board, champagne, custom cake and personalized place settings. They snacked and cheers-ed while us, the photographers and videographers oohed and awed them (totally normal, right?) before we took off and let them have some time on their own :)

The 'We'll-Remember-This-Always' Moments
It was a real smoke show the week of the wedding (and we’re not just talking about N+B). The forest fires were at their height and the mountains were full of smoke. We remember crossing our fingers that the smoke would clear for these two, but the haze couldn’t keep spirits down and the day was perfect as is.

Runner up: We heard a rumor that B changed his tie because he thought a different one would go better with the tablescape…. a groom of our dreams!!

The Wrap Up
We absolutely loved getting to know these two! After just spending five minutes with N+B, we immediately wanted to crash their wedding ceremony, just to spend more time with them. We were so glad they came to the mountains for their day and we loved being part of it.
