Beautiful Wedding Inspiration for the Mountain Bride

With the romance of Cinderella playing at the theatres right now we couldn't help but begin to dream of fanciful weddings at castles, gorgeous blue ballgowns and fairytale endings. With all of those dreams running through our head we turned to luxury wedding planner, Stacey of JoyFoley Weddings to share her own collection of curated images and tips that will hopefully inspire your own fairytale wedding and a life of happily ever after.

1. If Cinderella was married in the Rockies what venue would you choose for her?

There are so many great options when it comes to venues in the Rockies however based on design and style I would definitely have to say the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. Nicknamed the "Castle in the Rockies" this Scottish baronial style castle would be a perfect fit for Cinderella. The Banff Springs has an abundance of charm and the perfect ambiance for a romantic and luxurious princess wedding.

2. What kind of accessories should a princess bride or Cinderella wear for her wedding?

I LOVE the pretty details and everything that sparkles! A princess bride would be someone who likes dramatic and statement making pieces.

From the invitation they not only learn the location and time of our wedding but more importantly they get sense of the style, expectations and attire requirements. A Cinderella bride focuses on classic, clean and elegant invitations that say "Our wedding will be elegant, glamorous and timeless".
