Kathleen & Garett's romantic wedding was the perfect blend of classic design with contemporary details.

Like something out of an ethereal dream, Mount Stephen Hall at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel was cloaked in ivory, with abundant roses and transparent ghost chairs. A visage of a wedding reception fit for royalty.

Kathleen & Garett epitomized elegance, and were a wonderful couple to work with that had a beautiful vision for their wedding day. Achieving a refined, classic and luxurious affair with thoughtful details suited them to a tee, and what better setting to tie the knot than the lovely and traditional St. Mary’s Catholic Parish in Banff, with a formal reception to follow at the majestic Fairmont Banff Springs.

Guests made their way into Mount Stephen Hall, where pristine ivory tablecloths with clusters of ivory and white ohara and garden roses, ranunculus, anemone, and light greenery sat adorning each table in varying heights among rows of warm candlelight. The long head table dividing the room perfectly accentuated the grandness of the ballroom, and the clear chairs almost appeared to be levitating in the heavenly ballroom. Contemporary details were perfectly added with Louis ghost chairs and custom marble charger plates at each table setting – One of our most loved details. Subtle gilded details throughout acted as additional luxurious and refined accents. This wedding was perfectly luxurious but tastefully unique.

The formal black-tie affair was set with a traditional escort card table lined with ivory tented place cards, framed with a thick garland of sumptuous florals interspersed with twinkling candlelight in Monet vases. The best impression to a magical evening celebrating the well-loved couple.

Thank you to the talented team who made this spectacular wedding come to fruition.

Julianne Young Weddings planned our three-day wedding event in Banff. Words cannot express how amazing Julianne was throughout the entire year and a half planning process and how grateful my husband and I were to have her and Aimsley at our wedding. When we were looking for planners, it only took a short skype phone call for my fiancé and I to fall in love with her energy and enthusiasm. My fiancé and I were living long distance and knew we would need her to plan almost every aspect of our wedding. From the get go, she offered us the flexibility to tailor her services to exactly what we needed and this separated her from all the rest. When we started planning, I had a vision in my mind of what our wedding would look like. When Julianne showed us our décor inspiration board for the first time, we were shocked at how she not only brought that vision to life but she elevated it to another level and made it more spectacular than we could have ever imagined. She always made a point to help keep things within our budget which was very important to us and all the vendors she recommended to us exceeded our expectations. This allowed us to put our complete trust in her and made the whole process so much easier. On our last skype meeting a week before our wedding, she reminded us that if we had any issues or concerns pop up, to let her know and that she will take care of it. She wanted to make sure that we enjoyed all the days leading up to our wedding day and not to stress. This one comment meant so much to us. On the day of our wedding, Julianne and Aimsley were on top of everything and so professional. Our bridal party kept telling us how amazing they were. During our room reveal when I looked at our reception decor for the first time, I burst into tears. It was so beautiful! I still tear up just thinking about that moment! You can tell Julianne lives and breathes beautiful weddings and this is absolutely what she was meant to do. She has all the elements of a perfect planner with intense organizational skills, creativity, and style. I promise, if you choose JYW to help with your special day, you will feel as thankful that you did as we do.
