Waterton United Church Wedding [Jared & Jessica]

Jessica & Jared, Waterton United Church wedding

Jared and Jessica put together the perfect wedding they had dreamed of: a romantic mountain getaway that focused on their families coming together and the amazing connection they share. They even opted out of having a wedding party so they could spend more time and attention on their families.

We started the day at their Waterton United Church wedding, which was a perfect mix of sweet, touching moments and their nieces and nephews being adorable.

After the ceremony, we headed to the Prince of Wales Hotel (their favorite viewpoint in the park) for all of their portraits. Both Jessica and Jared were bursting with excitement all day and so full of joy to be marrying their soul mates. Even in the freezing wind, they couldn’t stop grinning!

They finished off their day with a private dinner (and a good shot of whiskey!) at the Waterton Lakes Lodge.

Congratulations, Jessica and Jared!

Kevin & Ashley, autumn Waterton Lakes wedding

Kevin and Ashley chose an amazing time of year for their autumn Waterton Lakes wedding; the park was nearly empty, beautiful fall colors lined the mountains, and it was still warm enough to get married outside. Even the crazy wind couldn’t spoil their perfect day! With each gust, Ashley cheered like she was on an amusement park ride because she was so happy to be marrying the man of her dreams.

There was so much joy throughout the day, especially at the reception. The speeches were full of laughter and they both had the hugest grins during their first dance. They are so perfect together!

They held both their ceremony and reception Waterton Lakes Lodge with photos taken throughout the town site and at Cameron Lake.

Congratulations, Kevin and Ashley!

Waterton Winter Wedding [Tawnia & Chance]

Waterton winter wedding photos

Tawnia and Chance contacted me a few days before their last minute Waterton winter wedding, and I jumped at the opportunity. I love surprises like that! Plus I was already biased to like her since her name is so close to mine :)

They had their ceremony at the Waterton Lakes Resort, and with it being off season in the town, we had full run of the venue and the entire town site.

However, the weather in Waterton was a little less than desirable. After a beautiful sunny drive in, I was shocked to arrive to a blizzard, with blowing snow and white out conditions! Very few of the mountains were even visible from within the town, which says a lot when the town is at the base of the mountains.

After we did the family photos indoors, we braved the snow for the outdoor photos they really wanted in spite of the weather. These were tricky because when the wind blew, I couldn’t even see them! Tawnia was super brave going outside with bare arms, and she barely showed her discomfort (I think Chance looked more cold than she did, hehe!). It was worth all the pain!

All of their closest friends and family were in attendance at their beautiful, intimate wedding and despite the weather outside, it was a perfect day :) (more…)
