♥ Emerald Lake Wedding - Carissa + Thomas ♥
T
he word that comes to mind when I think about Thomas and Carissa's wedding day is gratitude. They are a couple who are filled with so much gratitude for having found each other. They are madly in love and laugh easily and often with each other. It was so joyful to be around.

I was in love with Carissa's style. It looked amazing against the snow at Emerald Lake Lodge. I was excited that they chose to have their photographs taken before their ceremony so we could take advantage of the natural light.
Their pops of colour looked stunning in the snow!
I love when couples include things that have personal meaning for them. Thomas brought along this Hudson Bay blanket that once belonged to his mother. It was the perfect thing to cozy up in and a beautiful way to remember her on their wedding day.
This was my favourite detail from Thomas and Carissa's wedding day. When guests arrived a friend handed out his and hers cozy scarves for them to wear during the outdoor ceremony. It was such a thoughtful and sweet way to welcome everyone.
One of my favourite moments was after their first kiss when Carissa realized she had covered Thomas in her bright red lipstick. Such a great moment!

♥ Emerald Lake Wedding - Danielle + David ♥
D
avid proposed to Danielle on the trail that leads to the Lake Agnes teahouse overlooking a beautiful view of Lake Louise. They knew then that they wanted to return to the mountains to share their experience with their loved ones. They planned an amazing destination mountain wedding with friends and family joining them for dog sledding before their outdoor winter ceremony at Emerald Lake Lodge.

I absolutely loved their style. Everyone was so kind and welcoming to Kevin and I. It was a beautiful day to get to witness.
Danielle came prepared with her something blue being these great thermal long johns to keep her warm under her dress and her bright red boots.
I absolutely loved the groomsmen style!! I have never seen it before and I think it's perfect for a cozy winter mountain wedding.
We started their day off with a bride reveal and this photo is one of my favourites from their day.
I love love love the wedding party style!
I really loved that David and Danielle walked each other down the aisle. It was so romantic.
I adored their llama cake toppers that Danielle customized with a veil and top hat.

♥ Canmore Wedding - Stacey + Jon ♥
S
tacey and Jon had a romantic wedding in Canmore with their closest friends and family with them. They had planned for a snowy winter wedding but we had an unseasonably warm winter which meant no snow and it rained on their wedding day. I have always loved rainy weddings because they say whenever it rains you will be reminded of your wedding day and for me I get to create some unique images. Stacey and Jon were so tough in the freezing cold rain and howling wind and really focused on their excitement to be getting married.

We started their day with a bride reveal before heading out for photos. It was one of my favourite photo sessions because everything looked so beautiful with the falling rain and Stacey and Jon were so present with each other it felt as though they didn't even notice the rain.

We headed back to the inn to warm up and get ready for their outdoor ceremony. Guests were welcomed with Baileys and hot chocolate for their dusk mountain ceremony. I loved every minute of their day.

After their ceremony everyone joined the newlyweds inside for an intimate sit down dinner.

♥ Mount Norquay Winter Wedding - Suzie + Cam ♥
S
uzie and Cam's wedding day was full of laughter! It was important to them that everyone have a good time as they had friends travel from all over the world to celebrate with them. It was the first wedding that I've photographed at Mount Norquay and I was thrilled that Suzie and Cam were up for riding up the North American chair for photographs to take advantage of the stunning view.
Suzie asked Forget-Me-Not Flowers to create a bouquet without any flowers. I love the use of succulents and pinecones with thistle.
The back of Suzie's dress was stunning!
Suzie braved the cold for photographs on the top of the mountain.
Julie from Rocky Mountain Weddings made sure everything ran on time and set up the decor so that Suzie and Cam and their families could just enjoy their wedding day.
Suzie's dear friend was asked to be her bridesmaid but her baby ended up being due the week of the wedding. Suzie and Cam ordered a lifesize cardboard cut out of her so she could be present and Suzie's brother attached it to a remote control platform so she actually walked down the aisle. It was hilarious and so sweet.
Their Star Wars cake topper was a huge hit.
If guests wanted Suzie and Cam to kiss they had to roll the dice. If they won Suzie and Cam would kiss but if they didn't then whoever rolled the dice had to kiss a groomsman.
Cardboard cut out bridesmaid was a hit on the dancefloor.
Mount Norquay did a fantastic job with the reception.
