♥ Emerald Lake Wedding - Megan & Bobby ♥
e had an absolutely gorgeous day for Megan & Bobby's destination mountain wedding at Emerald Lake Lodge. They travelled with their closest friends and family to say I do in the mountains. I loved that they went out in a canoe for photos and Megan wore flats so we could hike to the back of the lake to take photos with that stunning wedding day sky.
Megan wore the garter that all of the women in her family have worn on their wedding day.

♥ Banff Elopement - Emily & Christopher ♥
mily & Christopher had a magical elopement in Banff that was a highlight for me to witness this year. We started the day off with a first look followed by photos around Banff. They were chauffeured around Banff in the vintage 1952 Bentley from Highland Executive Chauffeur before arriving in a mountain meadow where an officiant and a solo guitar player waited for them. With Mount Rundle as their backdrop they said I do before sitting down to enjoy the picnic that LFW Weddings had set out for them which included a cake for two that matched the bride's dress custom made by Kake. Emily kicked off her Louboutins and sat down with her husband in the meadow to take in the views and eat cake together while Andrew Ibanez played guitar. We took a few photos before hugging goodbye as the Bentley drove them to dinner at The Rimrock.

♥ Poppy ♥
had the honour of photographing John & Christine's engagement portraits and their wedding at the Banff Springs. When they asked me if I would photograph their daughter Poppy's first birthday portraits I happily said yes. John & Christine have spent a lot of time hiking in Kananaskis together so it seemed like the perfect place to take family portraits. Poppy charmed us completely with her sweet spirit. It was an inspiring morning spent in the mountains. I love getting happy updates from couples whose weddings I have photographed and this day was exactly that.

♥ Silvertip Wedding - Emily & Ross ♥
mily & Ross share a connection that is inspiring to be around. They greet everyone with immense kindness and have a kind of grace and elegance that feels like old world charm. Their personal vows to each other moved everyone to tears. I was grateful that the fall colour showed up early just in time for their day.

I asked Emily to write about their wedding day for me and she shared these words with me:
Ross and I met in Nashville but now live in Calgary, Alberta. With family & friends coming from Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky, Massachusetts, and across Canada, we chose to have the wedding in Canmore as a beautiful destination for all of our guests (many who were seeing the Rockies for the first time), and a close enough location for ease of planning, and for grandparents to be able to join.

We never started wedding planning with a "theme", but instead throughout the process gathered details that felt personal and special to us. Ross is very classic and traditional, which came through in the palette of navy and blush, rose-centric florals, and our 1952 Vintage Bentley. I am more girly and whimsical, which is why my A-line dress with its flowy, slightly blush skirt and cathedral veil were the perfect mix of classic and fun. Music is very important to us both, so we selected a string trio for the ceremony, with a special performance by two of my talented bridesmaids, and a great, jazzy band for the reception that kept the dance floor full all night. One of our best friends is a singer-songwriter in Nashville, and wrote a song called "Geronimo" that has mutually been declared our song, and was playing when Ross proposed. She played it live for our first dance and we took two-step lessons and I donned my cowboy boots. My parents also surprised us with beautiful string lights hanging from the rafters that cast a romantic glow and reminded me of Nashville, and how we fell in love dancing to country bands at the honkey tonk bars.

The day was perfect, and the perfect reflection of us. Every photo is filled with joy and love, and that is exactly how I want to remember it.
