We had a wonderful time helping our couple plan and design their rustic, Emerald Lake Lodge summer wedding. The couple had the talented international wedding photographer, Jesse Hisco take their stunning photos. Jesse does mountain weddings in the summer in Canada and then photographs in Australia and around the globe the rest of the year.
The couple decided not to let a little drizzle dampen their spirits on their most special day and they decided to have the ceremony on the patio outside of Cilantro on the Lake at Emerald Lake Lodge. With the stunning mountain views and beautiful emerald green waters, Emerald Lake Lodge is such a special place for a wedding!
As our beautiful bride was getting ready Jesse took photos of the essential wedding details. Here’s the bride’s classic, elegant dress.
The beautiful boutonnieres and wrist corsages were created by the amazing Sarah Mayerson Design. I loved her use of blackberries in the corsages.
The groomsmen relaxed outside their cabin as the couple readied for their ceremony.
The groom is ready to go.
And the bride is also ready with her beautiful updo complete. Hair and make-up was by local talent Stephanie Roy.
I love the natural, organic bridal bouquet created by Sarah Mayerson Design.
The scene was set with beautiful ceremony arrangments on rustic wood pillars and the lovely harpist Jacqueline Dolan performed for the waiting guests on the Cilantro on the Lake at Emerald Lake Lodge.
Harpist Jacqueline Dolan also has an amazing voice and she sang beautifully during the signing of the registry. It was a beautiful touch to a beautiful ceremony.
The wedding reception took place at Cilantro on the Lake at Emerald Lake Lodge (one of our favorite venues for weddings!). We love working with all the many talented wedding professionals on this wedding as it makes our job so much easier!
Sarah Mayerson Design’s never fail to “wow” and these gorgeous, reception natural florals were no exception.
We loved designing a natural, rustic wedding for the couple at Emerald Lake Lodge as our decor complements the rustic beauty of the venue.
As usual we made most of the wooden details for the decor, including the wood table numbers, log place card holders and the wooden “Mr and Mrs.”signs.
For the couple’s cake table we used the iconic buffet hutch in Cilantro on the Lake. The lovely cake was designed by the oh so talented Barbara Laberge from Cake Creations. Their favours were jars of jam and preserves made exclusively by the Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts in various flavors. We covered them with burlap fabric, twine and a tag we engraved from wood veneer. We used rustic detailing including our wood slices to complete the entire look.
This cute cake topper was hand-made by our friend and wedding day assistant Melanie Frank!
For the couple’s seating chart, we made it out of walnut wood veneer that we engraved with the guests’ seating arrangments. We also made a custom wood card box from reclaimed oak for the couple.
Finally, here are a few snap shots we took of some of the details.
We also made all the stationery for the couple including their invites, menu’s and place cards. Here we used some real wood detail for the menus.
Thanks for stopping by and viewing one of our favorite Emerald Lake Lodge summer weddings with us!
