Caitlin and Bruno were married on July 29th, with a ceremony and reception at the Island Lake Lodge in Fernie, British Columbia.

Since both Caitlin and Bruno value the outdoors, this beautiful mountain setting was perfect for the two of them. They kicked off the day with a morning yoga session led by Caitlin’s cousin—starting the day off right with all their family together and supporting each other.

Bruno is a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), so he wore his red serge for the ceremony. One of my favourite images of the whole day was of Bruno in his uniform with his back turned to Caitlin as we staged the first look. The colours of the day were so vibrant, and with such a contrast to the red serge, it simply looked stunning.

The bride and groom wanted to take pictures with their wedding party at the start of the day to be able to spend the rest of their time focused on their wedding, friends and family. So, they wanted to do something special for their first look. To give them their special moment, I staged Bruno with his back turned until Caitlin reached out to take his hand. It was a beautiful, intimate moment. Caitlin, afterward, said it was her favourite part of the whole day.

After the first look, we went adventuring out into the woods to take a few pictures through the trails and trees before Caitlin was canoed to the ceremony site by her uncle, where her brother and her father were waiting for her at the end of the aisle. What an entrance! Caitlin has grown up camping and canoeing with her father, so it perfectly fit her personality, too.

The ceremony itself was held at the I Dew Point, with the mountains and lake as the perfect backdrop before a bubbly celebration and light-hearted reception. Two of Caitlin’s cousins were the MC’s for the day, and they were absolutely hilarious. At one point, they had the guests sing a love song to the newlyweds, with the promise that the better the song was, the better the kiss would be. Some pretty daring guests got up to sing everything from Celine Dion to Backstreet boys to Louis Armstrong. Bruno’s father, a true Italian, even got up to sing a song in Italian.

As sunset approached, I was able to steal these two away for some pictures down by the lake. There, we took my favourite image of the whole day: the two of them dancing alone together as the light from the setting sun perfectly illuminated them. I loved the connection these two shared—as well as their willingness to trek out into the woods with me for some adventurous pictures.

When I think of some of my favourite days as a wedding photographer, this one is right up there as one of the best (other than the moment I dropped a brand new camera in the creek right in front of Caitlin and Bruno, but that’s a story for another day). I had an amazing backdrop and a couple who is deeply connected to each other as well as their family and friends.

Bruno & Caitlin, thank you so much for a spectacular day. It really was an honour to tell your wedding story. I can’t wait for you to see the album that we’ve built together!

get people interested about everything’ve got to say.
Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.

When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a
comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet
will be a lot more useful than ever before.
