I knew it was going to be an extraordinary day when on our way out to Marti & Matt's wedding at Emerald Lake Lodge we spotted a very handsome huge grizzly bear. An incredible start to an incredible day! Being around Marti's excitement was contagious. She was giddy about every part of their day. Marti & Matt want to start travelling together so choosing to have a destination mountain wedding was the perfect start to their marriage. They couldn't of chosen a more perfect setting for their intimate wedding to share their love of nature with their closest family & friends. June is sometimes unfairly nicknamed "June Monsoon" in the mountains but despite threats of rain Marti and Matt's wedding day was absolutely stunning. The kind of perfect day in the mountains that you hope for.

The Point Cabin at Emerald Lake Lodge offers a stunning view of the lake. I love that Marti & Matt woke up early on their wedding day and cuddled under a duvet on the wrap around porch to take in the morning and the view together.
