♥ 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.

♥ Emerald Lake Elopement - Jo + Chris ♥
hristopher and Jo planned a dream trip to the Canadian Rockies from the UK. They have been in love and dedicated to each other for 10 years and somehow in the midst of their trip planning they decided it would be the perfect place to elope! So they got married in the middle of their epic trip and brought along their wedding cake to share with friends who were meeting them later in the week to go rafting.

I was in love with Jo's gorgeous gown and stunning heels. I loved the thoughtful personal details that they brought along. When I remarked how much I loved their Ladybug Husband and Wife books that they brought along with them from the UK they gave them to me. That is the way they are...kind and generous people who welcomed us into their day. I feel so very lucky to have witnessed the moment they made their love official by saying I do.

We had a bit of everything for their day rain, sunshine and snow....yes snow!

♥ Emerald Lake Elopement - Brook & Chelsie ♥
t had been calling for rain for weeks. Brook & Chelsie told me that they were prepared with umbrellas and they wanted to try for an outdoor ceremony so they could be surrounded by the mountains, lake and trees. When we drove from Canmore it was pouring rain but when we reached Emerald Lake it was calm. We somehow managed to miss the rain and the sun even came out during Brook & Chelsie's vows. I was thrilled that were able to have the outdoor ceremony that they wished for.

Emerald Lake was the perfect place for Chelsie & Brook to elope surrounded by nature. It was a day filled with happy tears and laughter and I feel lucky to have witnessed it.

♥ Emerald Lake Emerald - Robin + Joshua ♥
obin and Joshua travelled from California to elope at Emerald Lake Lodge. Emerald Lake offers an amazingelopement package where they will arrange for a cake, flowers, a 3 course dinner and a bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate, a cozy cabin and breakfast for two. I can't think of a more beautiful place to say I do.

I loved that Robin came prepared with a pair of blue Hunter rainboots in case of rain. We managed to dodge the rain for the most part which meant that Robin & Josh got to have their ceremony by the lake outside and even get in a canoe for photos.

Robin and Josh were so incredibly kind and made us feel welcome immediately they even brought us presents from San Diego on their wedding day!

♥ Emerald Lake Elopement - Karenna & James ♥
arenna & James flew in for their destination mountain wedding. They chose to elope at Emerald Lake Lodge and I felt honoured to get to document the moment they became Mr & Mrs so they can share photos with loved ones when they gather this summer to celebrate. It was a quiet, calm and warm beautiful day at Emerald Lake. I loved that Karenna & James helped each other get ready and walked each other down the aisle. I've always felt that a couples day is about them starting a new chapter together so I loved that they started their day together.
I was excited to get to work with Karen from Field who did a stunning job on Karenna's hair & make-up. One of the advantages of booking Karen is not only that she can do both hair and make-up but because she lives in Field a 10 minute drive from Emerald Lake Lodge you don't have to pay any travel fees.
When you elope at Emerald Lake Lodge they arrange to have flowers delivered, a wedding cake, a 3 course dinner for two, sparkling wine to celebrate, breakfast for two, and a cabin with a fireplace in the room for you.
