♥ Emerald Lake Lodge Winter Elopement ♥
T
here had been a Yoho Blow in the early hours of the morning that left Field without power and had blown the snow out of the trees so when we approached Emerald Lake Lodge we were surprised and delighted to discover it was a living snowglobe for Casey & Jen's elopement. The soft falling snow was absolutely gorgeous and made it feel magical. There were so many moments where we were the only people outside or in the lodge which felt so peaceful and exactly what I would wish for an elopement.

I always tell brides that colour really photographs well for winter weddings so I was delighted to see Jen's stunning outfit and accessories which looked beautiful with the fresh snow. Kevin and I were honoured to get to sign as their witnesses and left feeling inspired.

♥ Chateau Lake Louise Winter Wedding ♥
A
lasdair & Erin planned their winter wedding at the Chateau Lake Louise often living in separate cities for work with the help of Lynn Fletcher Weddings. They both really cherish their families so they were excited to have everyone in one place for ice skating, dog sledding and walks around the lake. The boy's kilts looked stunning against the snow and the newly renovated Victoria Ballroom was beautiful for both their ceremony and reception.

I loved their touches of whimsy like the Star Wars & lego themed cake by Kake that also referenced the New York Public Library and their favourite books. Erin's brother designed a gorgeous set of invitations with beautiful illustrations of Lake Louise and bookmarks for every place setting for guests to take home.

The wind was fiercely cold that day but Alasdair & Erin braved the cold for photos and keep laughing throughout.

♥ Emerald Lake Lodge Winter Wedding Laura & Nick ♥
L
aura & Nick hosted an intimate winter wedding with just their families present at Emerald Lake Lodge. Guests enjoyed the hot tub while we were taking photos before the ceremony and popped up out of the hot tub to say hello during their first look. I knew it was going to be a fun wedding.

Laura's girlfriends took her shopping at Nordstorms to find her stunning sparkly dress and elegant cape which both looked gorgeous against the snow.

After the ceremony guests were given glasses of champagne and shared dinner in the President's room together followed by karake in the Yoho Lounge.

♥ Angus Room Wedding - Karin & Charlie ♥
K
arin has always loved winter and so when Karin and Charlie began planning their intimate wedding they knew it would be a winter wedding. After searching for winter weddings they fell in love with Banff and booked their wedding for the Castle in the Rockies. They travelled with their family and the priest from their family church in Texas and held their ceremony in the Angus Room at the Banff Springs.

I have always loved the southern tradition of the bride surprising her groom with a groom's cake which is typically created to represent something the groom loves. Kake did a wonderful job of creating a Star Wars themed cake for Karin to surprise Charlie with.

♥ Canmore Winter Wedding - Lindsay & Matt ♥
L
indsay & Matt have always cherished their time in the mountains so when it came time to plan their wedding they knew that Canmore was where they wanted to hold their winter wedding. They originally planned to elope but when their families heard they flew from across the country to be there to celebrate with them in the mountains. They held a ceremony at Quarry Lake and then joined everyone to celebrate at The Iron Goat.
Lindsay wore her Grandmother's dress for a few photos.
Lindsay and Matt gifted all the men in attendance a tie clip with mountains on it and the women all received a mountain necklace to remember their day by.
