Hotel MacDonald Wedding | Drawing Room
This past August Kristy & Jason were married at the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald in the Drawing Room. They both got ready in suites at the hotel before their ceremony in the Ladies’ Drawing Room. There ceremony was sweet and we spied a few tears in the room (we won’t say who!) before it was all official and the couple snuck away from a little post-ceremony alone time while we assembled the family on the terrace for family photos. Following family photos, we stayed on the Hotel MacDonald grounds for wedding party and couples photos. It’s such a pretty spot and you do get some pretty nice river valley views when you aren’t looking at the hotel. Once we wrapped photos, the couple snuck away again while we got some detail photos in the Ladies Drawing Room for their reception. Kristy & Jason entered the reception and went right into their first dance. It makes for a grand entrance and it’s something I think more couples should do! Here’s the story of Kristy & Jason’s Hotel MacDonald wedding in the Drawing Room!

What was the song you chose for the processional? Walked down the isle to “Here comes the Bride” . The kiss and walk out the ceremony song was by Randy Travis “Forever and Ever, Amen”

How did you choose your colour scheme/theme for the wedding? I wanted a simple style with a vintage feel for the wedding. I love jeweled colors so I went for a sharp cobalt blue with green and purple tones.
Where are you going for your honeymoon? We went to Canmore and Banff right after the wedding.
Thank you to Chelsey for being my awesome second shooter!
