Justine + Lee’s Kicking Horse Mountain Resort wedding was nothing short of AMAZING and certainly a major highlight of last Summer. This was our first wedding at this stunning mountain resort in Golden, BC and we are so thankful we were invited to be a part of Justine + Lee’s wedding weekend. Not only did we enjoy all of the planning + design/decor involvement but Justine, Lee and all of their friends and family made us feel so welcome within a very private gathering. Since it was off season at the time of the wedding, they pretty much had the entire resort all to themselves with nothing but incredible views in all directions.
The ceremony was held at the top of Kicking Horse Mountain at Eagle’s Eye Restaurant where the views are breathtaking. Weather atop Kicking Horse can change within 15 minutes from sunshine to downpour but we got very lucky for the ceremony. The perfect amount of overcast + wind was present for what was probably the most magical ceremony I’ve ever witnessed. Simple decor touches is all we needed for such an incredible backdrop. A string quartet played for the ceremony and throughout the cocktail hour that followed on the Eagle’s Eye terrace. The amazingly fearless duo behind Two Mann Studios, Lanny + Erika, were scaling rocks and hanging off rafters to capture all of the awesome photos. Not to mention, they stayed for 3 extra hours at the end of the night so as not to miss the hilarity on the dancefloor.
Our team headed back down the mountain to add the finishing touches to Whitetooth Grill where the fruits of our labour transformed a ski lodge into a rustic dinner reception. A delicious family style dinner was served in record time by the Catering team. We worked with almost all new vendors on this wedding due to it’s location but we are so grateful Brianna Errelat + her team joined in on the road trip to beautify the entire bridal party. Knowing the bridal party was in such good hands for the entire morning allowed us to focus on all of the other many details + logistics.
One of the new and unforgettable vendors was BPM Krew, flown in all the way from Toronto. Justine + Lee had seen them perform live while on a trip in the previous year and knew they had to have them perform at their wedding – and we knew why the second they did their sound checks the night before while we were setting up. Once dinner + speeches were complete we did a quick flip of the room to create the dancefloor that would not be clear until 3AM after a choreographed dance by the entire wedding party kicked off the party. BPM Krew rocked it until the lights came on and the weekend carried on with a big brunch gathering the next day in one of the gorgeous chalets.
