SILVERTIP RESORT WEDDING, CANMORE
Jessie and Scott were high school sweethearts, and together they had enjoyed many adventures…but the one that was most significant was their trip to Bali. In the most picturesque setting, Scott surprised Jessie with a proposal, and in typical Jessie fashion, she said YES with enthusiasm! Coinciding with their love of traveling together, they opted to host a destination wedding, exchanging vows with Alberta’s Rocky Mountains as their backdrop. Nestled atop a mountain in Canmore, Silvertip Resort lent itself as the perfect venue for Jessie and Scott’s wedding day — they shared vows underneath an outdoor gazebo, fitting for a rustic inspired celebration. As their friend performed live music, Jessie and Scott sealed a vintage wine box filled with love letters they wrote for each other and a special bottle of wine — which they plan to open on their fifth anniversary.
LOVE IN THE ROCKIES
While family and tradition were at the heart of Jessie and Scott’s wedding, they beautifully embraced traditions with their own unique flair. To suit their theme, they hired a vintage 1952 Bentley to travel throughout the mountains for the day and created DIY projects, as well as incorporated special vintage décor items. From the cake box to the mason jar centerpieces, and the handmade wooden signs and table runners, Jessie and Scott considered every detail. Jessie’s favouritE projects though were the welcome bags which included some of their favourite things: homemade wine made by the father of the bride, homemade maple fudge by the mother of the groom, popcorn, starburst candy, chocolate covered almonds, and information brochures about the Rockies — all of the things they wanted to share with their guests.
FUN FAMILY WEDDING TRADITIONS
It was touching, all the little personal details that they included in their celebration…many of them family heirlooms. Jessie wore family heirloom earrings that were owned by her great great grandmother — earrings that have been passed on from one generation to the next and have been worn by the women in her family on each of their wedding days. At their reception, they also displayed antique wedding photos of their family members’ weddings. As guests arrived, they were invited to type words of wisdom and congratulations on Scott’s grandmother’s typewriter. It was a great way to honour their loved ones and keep the good wedding karma flowing from generation to generation.
