Brooke & DavidSky Bistro – Banff Gondola Wedding

Sky Bistro Wedding Banff Gondola

 

This year a beautiful new wedding venue opened on top of the picturesque Sulphur Mountain: The Sky Bistro. I was fortunate enough to be one of the first wedding photographers to document a wedding there and couldn’t wait to check it out. The ceremony took place on the rooftop, complete with a backdrop of mountaintops, followed by the reception inside the stylish Bistro. There are other wedding venues in British Columbia with similar mountain-top settings, but The Sky Bistro is the first in Alberta with easy access via the Banff Gondola. I look forward to documenting more weddings there!

Brooke and David not only had a unique wedding venue, but they also ended up with a rather unique day as it was right when all the forest fires started. The whole day smelled like a camp fire and by the late afternoon smoke began to fill the valley providing some interesting diffused light. There has to be some poetic symbolism somewhere in the parallel of the new life and fresh start that the fires bring to the forests and these two beginning their new life together as husband and wife. Despite the challenges of the smoke and forest fires, the day was perfect!

Amanda & KevinLake Louise Wedding Photographer

It’s not uncommon for couples to come to Lake Louise or Banff on their honeymoon. It is such a gorgeous place to relax, hike, and enjoy good food.  Lately I have had a increase in the number of inquires I get from couples who are bringing their wedding attire with them and looking to book a wedding photographer.  I have loved working with couples who are doing this. Not everyone is able to elope or have a destination wedding where they would like, so this has been a great opportunity for couples to get some amazing wedding photos done in a picturesque place. If you recently stumbled upon my work and are coming to Banff or Lake Louise on your honeymoon, I’d love to connect!

Here are a few of the images captured for Amanda and Kevin while they were passing through Lake Louise on their honeymoon.

Jennifer + Mike Bow Lake Wedding | Banff National Park

Jennifer and Mike had a warmth about them that they must have brought with them all the way from their California home. It came in handy when the weather refused to cooperate for their planned destination wedding in Banff National Park; even though the raindrops fell a-plenty, Jennifer and Mike’s smiles never left their faces.  Their cozy and heartfelt outdoor ceremony took place at Bow Lake with some additional photos to follow at Peyto Lake, where the majestic scenery did its best to act as an adequate backdrop to capturing this beautiful couple’s chemistry and love for each other. They then concluded the day by heading back to the Banff  townsite with their closest friends and family to an evening at the Park Distillery in the glow of a new chapter, a new beginning, and twinkling candlelight.
