ara & Mark decided to elope in the mountains and chose Storm Mountain Lodge for their wedding location. A week before their wedding was set to take place the Alberta floods happened and their home was badly flooded forcing them to postpone their wedding plans and work on ripping out their flooded basement.
What moved me was that Tara and Mark kept a really positive attitude throughout it all and we reset a date for September. September is one of my most favourite months in the mountains and I was thrilled that Tara & Mark were given an absolutely stunning wedding day.

Tara and Mark love to mountain bike together and do most of their grocery shopping by bike in the city so it was appropriate that Tara gifted Mark this awesome set of cufflinks that she found on Etsy of bike chain links.
We started their day off with a little bike ride of course. I was impressed that Tara could ride in her wedding dress and heels.

Walking down the forest path to their ceremony together.
Tara and Mark wrote personal vows to each other and they were so moving. I was in tears and then laughed out loud. A truly memorable ceremony because it was so personal.
