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!
