  • Wedding: October 2019 - Chateau Lake Louise

My FH and I are getting married at the Chateau Lake Louise. It’s lakeshore, not beach. 

I actually decided on this venue because of some photos I saw on the Bee of an elopement at Moraine Lake. I had been through Banff about 6 months before FH and I met. I loved it so much, when it occurred to me I knew there was nowhere else I’d rather do it.

  • Wedding: October 2019 - Chateau Lake Louise

MrsBtoBe14 :  The wedding isn’t until October 😉

Lake Louise is actually carefully controlled. They only let a certain number of people up at a time. Additionally, they don’t allow access to the lake before a certain time of day, so we should have the place to ourselves for early morning photos. 

Also, early October is the beginning of shoulder season, and there are far fewer tourists there that time of year. It was part luck and part intention to have the wedding at a time of year when it would be less busy as well as less expensive.

MrsBtoBe14 :  My husband and I had the opportunity to get married in NYC. We love our pictures out and about in Times Square with all of the foot traffic rushing by, but all we see is each other 🙂

  • Wedding: January 2018

We did a domestic destination wedding at Devil’s Thumb Ranch in Colorado. We loved that everyone could stay on the property and we had so many people tell us they loved the venue and never would have come to the area if it weren’t for the wedding. Even though the ceremony was indoors it still a stunning environment.

We’re getting married in York, Maine on a harbor.  So still waterfront, but not a beach.  We’re from Colorado and FI’s family is from Massachusetts.
