Just a few photos from J&M’s Kicking Horse Mountain Resort Winter Wedding
The snow fell softly all morning, covering the evergreens in a blanket of white. There was a chill in the air but warmth in everyone’s hearts. Guests piled onto the Gondola at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort , making the 20 minute trek up into the clouds. Reaching the top, we dodged skiers and snowboarders headed down the mountain as we made our way to the ceremony site. Guests cozied up in chairs together, cupping a hot chocolate in one hand and their ski goggles in the other. They were ready for J&M’s Kicking Horse Mountain Resort winter wedding.
It truly was the perfect day to be married on top of a mountain. J&M planned the perfect way to celebrate their first day as husband and wife. A mountain top ceremony followed by apres ski burgers and beers with their nearest and dearest. They even strapped on their snowboards for a quick run down the slopes of Kicking Horse as husband and wife.
Tanis and Josh’s gorgeous Banff Rocky Mountain Resort Wedding
Tanis and Josh are adventurers – just like us. They have a fire in their soul for travel and new experiences. So, naturally, we felt a connection to them right away. Currently, they are teaching English in Macau, China and they’ve got a list of travel spots Andrew and I need to catch up on. Bali, the Philippeans, Thailand, Malaysia … the list goes on. We are seriously swooning just looking at some of their travel photos online.
As worldly as these two are, they couldn’t imagine a better place to be married than Banff Alberta. This little mountain town in the heart of the Canadian Rockies will always be home to them. Tanis grew up in the Rockies as a competitive ski racer. She couldn’t imagine planning a wedding without mountain top views and the wilderness. As luck would have it, nature pulled out all the stops on their wedding day. It rained most of the morning and things were looking a little touch and go. They were hoping for an outdoor ceremony at Tunnel Mountain reservoir and kept waiting to make a decision. They stuck to their guns and just as their ceremony began the skies cleared and an epic fog rolled in. The views were spectacular. You just can’t plan for anything better than that.
Canadian Rockies Golden Civic Centre Wedding – Alycia & Scott
Alycia and Scott chose beautiful Golden British Columbia for their wedding because it holds such a dear place in their hearts. They recently purchased a plot of land just outside of town and plan to build their future home there. We were immediately on board. They couldn’t wait to visit their property and make photos that they could commemorate their wedding day memories with. (Even if there were approximately 1,000,000 mosquitos waiting to greet us).
This ended up being the most perfect day. There were so many personal touches that made this day unique. Alycia’s mom handcrafted her wedding dress and bridesmaid skirts from scratch! They wrote personal vows to one another for their ceremony and we promise you, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. (That’s the kind of stuff that gets us in the feels … and makes for the best photos).
