The awe & magic of stepping out into the winter wonderland of Emerald Lake was especially surreal having just left a snowless Calgary. I've never witnessed such a dramatic contrast before James & Christa's absolutely gorgeous snowglobe wedding day. It was a dream winter wedding setting. James and Christa's intimate wedding at Emerald Lake was filled with excitement and love. It was made especially meaningful when we witnessed James' twin brother perform their wedding ceremony. The snow fell softly all around them like nature's confetti.

We started their day with a First Look.
