Canadiana Boho Mountain Winter
Boho Winter Wedding is Featured on Wedding Chicks and Canadian Mountain Chic
The iconic Lake Louise, one of the most photographed lakes in the world, was the location for this boho-chic, winter wedding inspiration. A talented team of local wedding professionals collaborated alongside Naturally Chic including Willow Flower Co.; Mountain Beauties; Canmore + Banff Makeup Artistry and Whippt Desserts + Catering Inc. and photography by Darren Roberts Photography.
I had long dreamed of an outdoor inspirational shoot set up directly on the frozen iconic lake. Lake Louise is surrounded by several mountain peaks, with stunning views of the majestic Victoria Glacier. It’s an incredibly beautiful location in both summer and in winter, and I couldn’t get the thought of shooting there out of my mind. For several years, this idea stirred in my mind. It wasn’t until sitting down to dinner with a few colleagues, that the thought began to take form.
Although I wanted bohemian influences in the design, I still wanted to keep the overall look a casual chic, with elegant touches. To me this meant, having a cohesive look and not going too eclectic with patterns and colors. I knew Kailee (our florist) would be incorporating some rich and varied tones in the flowers, so the color palette for the table was kept decidedly neutral with various shades of browns and turquoise for small pops of color.
I incorporated rich textures such as wood, leather, fur, and natural shed antlers, as well as more refined elements such as the glassware, silverware, and candlesticks. I included some faux furs as a nod to the history of the area (once a trading place for furs), but also because it’s appropriate for winter! I included an assortment of leathers and juxtaposed it with engraved acrylic stationery (menu and place cards) for a more modern look.
Naturally Chic made everything from the napkins, napkin holders, chair covers, and log place card holders, to the menu and place cards. We even specially made the table and the benches just for the shoot as we wanting something that was easily transported out to the lake!
