Vivian and Ray travelled all the way from California to get married along the shoreline of Lake Louise and they were rewarded with a beyond beautiful day. Their heartfelt ceremony written and performed by Vivian's sister was full of moving moments and laughter. it was an incredible testament to the love and commitment they have shared as a couple and an absolute joy to get to witness. This tight knit group of loved ones were thrilled for Vivian and Ray and it was so much fun to be around their excitement. Getting to witness the connection that Vivian and Ray share was touching and a reminder of why I love my job so very much. I was so happy that the mountains decided to show off for them on their wedding day.

This is now my favourite first kiss photo because I love how excited Vivian's sister got when pronouncing them husband and wife.
