mily and David had a stunning blue sky winter day for their mountain wedding at Emerald Lake Lodge. They have friends from all over the world so they decided to create a wedding week-end so they could really spend time with everyone. They chose the "rent your own island" option at Emerald Lake Lodge which meant they had the lodge to themselves and their guests which created an intimate atmosphere with lots of opportunity to visit with everyone over s'mores, card games and drinks by the fire.
Emily's uncle made this directional sign that marked the distances that everyone had travelled to celebrate with Emily and David.
I was in love with the romantic flowers that Sarah Mayerson
created for Emily.
Emily had each of her bridesmaids choose their own black gown to wear and then she gifted them each a unique pair of emerald coloured earrings to wear on the wedding day.
Their ceremony was made more personal by having a friend play music for them.
Emily walked down the staircase of the main lodge of Emerald Lake while her father waited for her at the bottom of the steps to walk with her down the aisle. It was a great entrance.
I love that Emily and David came prepared with matching his & hers Sorel winter boots so we could walk out on the frozen lake for photos.

It was an unbelievable clear blue sky day for Emily and David. Just gorgeous!
A huge thank you to Emily and David's wedding party who were super fun and up for anything. The bridemaid on the right wore 3 inch heels and walked on the snowy lake without any complaints. I was amazed at her heel skills.
I loved the hand knit scarves the bridesmaids wore.
I have been lucky to photograph some really stylish grooms this year. I loved David's suit which featured a emerald green liner with a playful dog print. Emily brought some delicate beautiful cream coloured mittens that went beautifully with her romantic lace gown.
Mount Burgess was caked in snow and looked stunning.
One of the things that stood out to me at Emily and David's wedding was how many details were lovingly made and assembled by friends and family. Emily's sister made each of their table "numbers" each table depicted a different mountain peak burned into the wood with it's name hand stamped below, a friend played guitar during their ceremony, family assembled to decorate the table and the lodge, the bridemaids wore hand knit scarves. There were so many ways that people came together to express their love for Emily and David.
I loved their favours that were carefully wrapped with twine and custom tags. A teeny tiny glass vial filled with red topped matches and a fir scented candle. Such a cozy romantic idea for guests to enjoy in their cabins.
While we were out taking photos guests were invited to hang out at the lodge to enjoy hot chocolate, beers and cards. There were cozy lounge areas set up throughout the lodge that encouraged guests to visit. It would of been an amazing wedding to be a guest at.
I absolutely wanted to take this bear couple home with me with their handmade outfits.
On our way home we were really excited to see a big herd of elk standing in the creek by Field.
