Sarah & Michael planned an intimate mountain wedding with their closest loved ones joining them in Canmore. Their wedding was to be held on the first day the new Catholic Church in Canmore would be hosting weddings with dinner to follow at Creekside Villa in Canmore. Then Coronavirus hit hard and their wedding plans were a series of roller coaster bumps. Their 34 person wedding was required to downsize to 15, the church wasn't sure if they would be allowed to open their doors at all and Creekside Villa had been told they couldn't host indoor weddings. 

Through it all Sarah & Michael handled the ever evolving changes with grace and rolled with it. Plans were made & cancelled numerous times over with every new announcement. And then miraciously it all came together in the most incredible way. The church was allowed to open their doors and their wedding date could be kept. The permitted guestlist was raised to 50 and Creekside Villa could once again host their loved ones in Canmore. They got to be a part of a little bit of history being that It was the first day of weddings at the Catholic church in Canmore.

Sarah & Michael were given an amazing mountain day. It was so joyful to get to see them have their dream wedding.
