Willow Drive Outdoor Wedding in the Crowsnest Pass [Sheridin & Ian]

Sheridin & Ian, Willow Drive outdoor wedding in the Crowsnest Pass

Sheridin and Ian based their wedding around the mountain landscape of their hometown. Their Willow Drive outdoor wedding, entirely held at Ian’s brother’s place, provided sweeping views of the mountains in the Crowsnest Pass and made it easy for so many family members to be there.

This wedding was a celebration of the life Sheridin and Ian have already built together. After meeting in high school, education and work pulled them in different directions for many years while they successfully maintained a long distance relationship. They have finally been able to build a home together and were ready to have a party to celebrate that fact!

After getting ready at their own home and having a backyard first look, we headed to Willow Drive for portraits. Having their wedding there made it so easy to hop between the amazing views in the field and at the Starcreek Falls trail.

They really wanted to center the reception around their love for their families. The heartfelt speeches resulted in so much laughter and crying (sometimes both in the same breath).

Congratulations, Sheridin and Ian!

St. Mary Campground Wedding [Cherilynn & Austen]

Cherilynn & Austen, St. Mary Campground Wedding

Cherilynn and Austen had their intimate St. Mary Campground wedding surrounded by nature and their closest friends and family. Family played a very important part in their day by having all of their siblings in the wedding party, as well as their own daughters.

Using the private group area of the campground at the St. Mary Reservoir meant no tourists crashed the wedding, but allowed a few extended family members to swing by to congratulate the couple. It also gave a clear view for people to drive over the dam and honk their congratulations! Cherilynn tried her best to wave at everyone who did so even if they couldn’t see her.

They combined their cultures in a fun way by having a bagpiper introduce their spiritual First Nations ceremony. After their ceremony and family photos, they opened up their outdoor dance floor to party under the night sky. Outdoor receptions are so gorgeous and everything was perfect… minus the mosquitoes (who were a bit much for everyone there!).

Congratulations, Cherilynn and Austen!
