Equestrian Luxury

The Mountain Bride team was invited by Cherry Creek Estate and Luxe by Calgary Bride to produce a photoshoot for the Luxe Bridal Magazine! Equestrian Luxury was the perfect theme for this location.

Cherry Creek Estate is a new luxury wedding venue in Cranbrook, BC. It is a breathe taking property surrounded by stunning mountain views. This venue goes back to the very first wedding I planned back 10 years ago! My clients wanted a horse and carriage, and I stumbled across Cherry Creek Estate. When meeting with the owners, checking out the horse and carriage, they showed me into their beautiful Buggy Barn. A quick look around and I was convinced it was the perfect location for a barn wedding. The barn wedding trend was just starting at that time, so I pitched it to the owners. They were not having any part of weddings on their private Estate. Over the years I kept in touch with them, each time pitching another wedding clients dream to get married in a barn. But every time, with no hesitation they declined.

A couple years back I heard local rumblings that the owners of Cherry Creek Estate were considering selling. When I picked up the local Kootenays paper last fall and read about the new, ambitious owners of Cherry Creek Estate jumping right into booking weddings and events, I was so excited. Quickly I sent off an email to Alan Maudie, photographer extraordinaire, that also happens to have grown up in Cranbrook. As my luck would have it, he knows the new owners.

When Lynn from Luxe by Calgary Bride pitched the idea her and Alan Maudie were cooking up for a photoshoot at Cherry Creek Estate, and asked me to Design it, I could not say no! Beautiful mountain views, amazing respected photographer, and a gorgeous location with such a history with Mountain Bride Inc!!

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as we are so proud to show them off!
