This winter wedding styled shoot at the Sky Bistro in Banff captures some stunningly perfect moments of winter, warmth, and romance.
We fell in love with the rooftop ceremony on the Banff Gondala terrace, displaying stunning views of not only the picturesque bride and florals, but the snow-capped mountains behind as well. Featuring hues of toffee, dusted rose, and black, this moody palette is the perfect complement to the stark white snow and pale blue sky of winter.
“We had our hearts set on a venue 7,510 ft above sea level named Sky Bistro at the top of Sulphur Mountain. I absolutely could not wait. Sky Bistro is the perfect blend of romance & luxury and is just oh so Canadian. Plus, doing a wedding inspiration shoot on the top of a mountain is pretty crazy! I opted to go for a moody colour palette of blush, vintage lavender, plum, champagne and ivory to contrast against the blue skies and epic views of the snow-covered mountain range that Sky Bistro overlooks. The rooftop terrace of the Banff Gondola is the perfect location for a ceremony and can seat up to sixty guests. We wanted to showcase beautiful florals by Flowers By Janie without distracting from the amazing 360-degree views so rather than an arch we complimented the glass balcony that surrounds all of the Banff Gondola summits with clear pillars and stunning ceremony arrangements filled with roses, lisianthus, scabiosa, ranunculus, and greenery. The wind was perfect and blew the Daphne Newman veil and Jenny You bridal gown so beautifully for some amazing film and still shots.”

Table For Two
“We moved into Sky Bistro, the restaurant on the third floor of the summit, that had expansive views of the Rockies, with a lot less windchill! (Remind me why I picked middle of February for a mountain top inspiration shoot, it was at least -25 at the top!) The tablescape had pops of gold with a stunning raw silk runner down the middle of the dark wood. It was elegant but fit so perfectly into the luxury ski chalet vibes Sky Bistro’s decor has.”
