A Laid-Back Winter Wedding In Kananaskis, Alberta

  |   By Kate Mendonca

A Laid-Back Winter Wedding in Kananaskis, Alberta - Bride & Groom

To surprise Jody with a proposal, Chris enlisted the help of her best friend, who flew from Vancouver for the occasion. When he was about to pop the question, Chris planned for the friend to "bump into them" and capture the entire moment. It was especially romantic since the proposal took place at the zoo—the same spot where the couple had their second date.

"We wanted to have a relaxed and easy-going wedding to match our personalities," Jody says. "In tribute to all the stunning nature surrounding the venue, we used wooden accents to create a rustic vibe—they were also a nod to the woodworking company my dad and I own." To accompany their rustic and relaxed vibe, Jody and Chris went with a palette of navy blue and blush, with hints of rose gold to match the bride's engagement ring.

The couple chose to have a first look prior to their wedding ceremony, but that didn't stop the two of them from anticipating their moment at the altar. "Once Chris and I were at the altar, it was as if no one else was in the room," recalls Jody. "Even though we had just seen one another during the first look and pictures, we both had butterflies."

Another highlight of the day for Jody and Chris was seeing the finished product of all the stunning floral arrangements and décor coming together, so that family and friends alike could enjoy it after months of preparation. "Between the rose gold cutlery, marble chargers, candles, rose blooms and greenery, it was absolutely gorgeous. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect!"
