Laura and Ryan’s Intimate Winter Emerald Lake Lodge Wedding

We are seeing more and more couples opt for an intimate wedding over a big soiree. We think that intimate weddings are an up and coming trend in the wedding industry. But truth be told, we hope it’s not just a trend.  We think it should be the norm.

Laura and Ryan’s intimate winter Emerald Lake Lodge wedding was the stuff dreams are made of. Having a small group of people with you to celebrate your wedding day is so special. With a hundred guests or more, you can easily feel overwhelmed. There’s never enough time to say hello to everyone and the day just ends up flying by. When you choose to have an intimate wedding, things really slow down. You end up having more time to spend with your guests. You have more time to spend with each other and you end up enjoying yourselves a little more.

The other great thing about an intimate wedding is that you have lots of time for portraits. That is such a great thing! You don’t have to rush through photos and can really get comfortable  Laura and Ryan had the most beautiful light for their photos. We went out at golden hour, when the light is the prettiest. That time of day happens about an hour before sunset and it truly is beautiful. Sometimes those are our couple’s favourite pictures from the whole day. It’s just the perfect time to slow things down and take a few moments to appreciate each other. When you’re in the moment like that, magic can happen.
