Nicole & Brett had the honour of having the first winter wedding ceremony to be held on the terrace of The Banff Springs. With the help of Julie from Rocky Mountain Weddings they planned their destination mountain wedding in 5 weeks. I was thrilled to see fresh snow arrive just in time for their wedding. Banff was a total winter wonderland. They braved the freezing outdoor temperatures to get married outside with their loved ones cheering them on and snow falling all around them. 

Nicole & Brett had the very first winter wedding ceremony on the terrace of the Banff Springs. So while everyone got ready upstairs the grounds crew of the Banff Springs was busy removing the snow and preparing the aisle for the wedding ceremony.

There were fleece blankets placed on every seat for guests and hot chocolate available for everyone.
