A Romantic, Classic Wedding at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in Lake Louise, Alberta

Louisa Lai and Mitchell Yu took full advantage of Alberta’s natural beauty by hosting their wedding on the shores of Lake Louise.

“The ceremony had to be outdoors to take advantage of the location, and we were fortunate to have excellent weather for the entire week while we were there,” Louisa says.

The couple stuck with a color palette of muted ivory and blush hues to allow the natural setting take center stage. The décor followed a similar elegantly understated theme. For the ceremony, the couple exchanged vows under an arch draped in panels of ethereal white fabric and a garland of full garden roses, perfectly framing the crystal blue waters of Lake Louise and the surrounding snow-capped mountains.

Guests were given glimpses of the mountain landscape during the reception as well, which was hosted in the Alpine Room at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Mirroring the room’s refined feel, the couple dressed up the dining tables with gilded chiavari chairs, shimmering rose gold table linens, rose gold rimmed dinnerware and bountiful bouquets of white garden roses. Classic harp music played throughout the lunch reception, further amplifying the event’s elegant vibe.
