Brandon and Nina were married in snowy and beautiful Banff, Canada. They choose the Warner Stables and picked March to ensure a snowy wonderland! Love Actually Foto made sure the dreamy backdrop was in every single photo and captured the excitement and love of their wedding day perfectly!
“Brandon and I have always loved to travel. So, when we got engaged we knew right away destination was the way we wanted to go. It was a matter of finding out where… Brandon threw out Banff, being the big skier he is. I had no idea where Banff was, but when I looked it up, it was a no brainer. I also have always loved winter weddings! The mountains, snow and fur will turn your wedding into a fairytale and that’s exactly want I wanted.
I looked for a lot of inspiration from social media and took little things I liked from pictures to make it my own. One thing I didn’t want to fall short on was flowers!! The greens against the snow are breathtaking. Carly Rivas from Chickweed Cottage knew exactly what I wanted.
I thought living in Minnesota and having a wedding in a different country was going to be extremely tough. With social media and Skype it made things really easy! Another thing that Brandon and I did was went with a DJ that played music we enjoyed. We got extremely lucky and came across High Sobriety when we were in Banff looking at different venues. He was playing at an event and we knew he would be a perfect fit!
Weddings can be overwhelming and you’ll have a lot to do. The best advice I can give is to pick all the things you and your partner love and incorporate that into one big day filled with love and joy! I wasn’t able to see our reception before our wedding day and when I did I couldn’t stop crying. It was because I was so grateful for all of the amazing vendors and people supporting us. With their hard work and ours we were able to make something magical that we will remember for years to come!”
From Nina’s stunning Enaura gown, to the ruby red Vow to be Chic bridesmaid dresses and the horse-drawn carriage the bride and her father road down the aisle in, this best day ever was full of magical winter decor and moments. Congratulations on the first day of the rest of your lives together!! Welcome to Married Life!
