An Intimate Fall Wedding In Banff

For their big day, Leanne and Reed decided to keep things intimate and invite only close family and friends. “Our amazing wedding planner had the idea to do one long harvest style table which was fantastic. Everyone got to sit and mingle together so it worked out perfectly,” Leanne says. “One of my favourite details was that instead of doing traditional place cards, we had a little vase with a single flower. Attached was a beautiful water coloured place card done by Art & Alexander.”

The pair chose to keep their colour scheme as deep and romantic as their day. “We did a Moody Romance theme with marsala, blush and sandstone. We wanted something dark, romantic and intimate,” Leanne explains. “For the table I wanted lots of greenery–we used Italian ruscus versus high centrepieces so the ambiance was much more intimate.”

As a non-traditional twist, the couple used three bottles of wine instead of a guestbook. “We’ll drink one on our first, second and tenth wedding anniversary,” Leanne remarks. “It’s the little details that make everything so special and memorable.”

One of the major highlights of the day was the after dinner dancing. “I think when you have a smaller wedding everyone is a little worried that things will die down a lot quicker,” Leanne explains. “This was definitely not the case for us–we shut the room down!”
