Rimrock Resort | Banff Wedding Photos

Kerri & Darryl celebrated their love with a fantastic wedding ceremony overlooking the amazing Banff National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The location could not have been more perfect, on top of the Rimrock Resort Hotel on their ideal outdoor terrace (Suite 900) that looks out over the entire townsite of Banff, the Canadian Rockies, and is nestled in the valley separating Mount Rundle and Sulphur Mountain. The terrace is an amazing location for an intimate wedding ceremony, with nearly 360 degrees of spectacular views.

Kerri and Darryl were surrounded by close friends and family, who helped celebrate this beautiful day. The weather was superb and we couldn’t have asked for anything else on this great day, we were so happy to be a part of their wedding. For photos, we went to a few different spots around Banff, including Surprise Corner and the gorgeous meadow on Tunnel Mountain, along with Lake Minnewanka and the Bankhead ruins.

A cute part of the ceremony was Kerri & Darryl’s  dog coming down the aisle as the ring bearer, delivering the rings when called.

The Cochrane Ranchehouse Wedding

Cassandra and Dustin are such wonderful people, perfect for each other, and their wedding was a beautiful celebration made up of close friends and family. We had the honour of photographing their wedding at the Cochrane RancheHouse in picturesque Cochrane, Alberta. Considered a frontier town of the Old West, Cochrane is a great location to get married set amoungst the rolling foothills and with the Rocky Mountains as the backdrop. We previously captured engagements photographs of Casey & Dusty in Bragg Creek last year, which were also featured in the November issue of Weddings in Alberta Magazine, and both of these locations have special significance for the couple. The Cochrane RancheHouse is a beautiful wedding location, and we also went with the wedding party to do photos at McDougall Memorial United Church near Ghost Lake in Morley, Alberta. We had a lot of fun working with Casey & Dustin, and we wish them the very best for their future lives together.

Eagle Ranch Golf Course Wedding | Julie & Barry

Julie & Barry’s wedding took place on a beautiful autumn day in the East Kootenays at Eagle Ranch Golf Resort in Invermere, BC. The venue is absolutely incredible, nestled in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and the Purcell Range. The ceremony was held on a windy bluff overlooking the vast Columbia Valley, which provided an incredible backdrop for their wedding. We took photos at various locations around the golf course and the staff were so helpful and accommodating. Overall this was a wonderful spot for a wedding in British Columbia.

Casey & Dustin Engagement Session | Bragg Creek Engagement Photos

We met up with Casey & Dustin in Bragg Creek to do their engagement photos. We started off at a small lake in Bragg Creek Provincial Park and finished the session at Elbow Falls. It turned about to be a beautiful day! The Bragg Creek area and Elbow Falls are great locations for an engagement photo session. We are really looking forward to photographing Cassandra & Dustin’s wedding next summer at the Cochrane RancheHouse.

Tanah & Kieren’s Kananaskis Wedding | Nakoda Lodge Wedding

The wedding of Tanah & Kieren was a true celebration of love and touched the lives of family and friends alike. We were honored to be a part of this joyous day and to meet such incredible people. Nakoda Lodge, being quite an incredible venue, was a perfect match as the location for their ceremony. Surrounded by family and friends, nestled in the heart of the Kananaskis, and with the Rocky Mountains as their backdrop, Tanah and Kieren were married on a beautiful summer’s day in July. Tanah is from Calgary and has traveled the world studying and volunteering. She was studying at YWAM bible school in New Zealand when she met Kieren, who is a New Zealander. They both had an instant connection and through time they knew that they were destined for one another. When they decided to marry, they made a vow not to kiss for an entire 16 months prior to the wedding, so their kiss at the end of the ceremony was extra special. We had such a great time getting to know Tanah & Kieren and some of their friends and family.

The wedding reception was held at the Valley Ridge Golf Course in Calgary and the theme was all things New Zealand & Canada. Their guest favours were Kiwi fruits adorned by mini black bow ties with the couple’s name and wedding date inscribed. At the reception, there were numerous events such as table questions featuring New Zealand trivia, team relay races in which everyone had to finish a spoonful of Marmite, and timed quizzes to figure out the names of New Zealand sports clubs. Perhaps the most powerful moment, aside from the very touching speeches, was when the guys from the wedding party and a few unsuspecting volunteers from the audience performed a Haka dance for everyone. The Haka is a sacred traditional dance of New Zealand’s indigenous Maori people that has become a symbol for all of New Zealand. The Haka has been adopted by New Zealand’s rugby team the All Blacks, and performed before matches in front of the opposing team. Kieren, his brother, and friends from New Zealand, being devout fans of the All Blacks, and true Kiwis themselves, wanted to perform the Haka for the wedding guests. It was quite a spectacle. Having been to New Zealand for our honeymoon, and seen the Haka danced by Maoris in person, we can fairly say that Kieren’s rendition was very powerful and moving. You can see below we have put a short video clip from the wedding with the groomsmen performing a Haka dance.
