When you have a wedding at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, you stand a very good chance of putting on a show for your guests. Keltie and Brad’s wedding delivered in spades. I feel so fortunate to count these fine people as my friends now – we had an epic day of skiing the past fall. Looking forward to many more with them!
A perfect fall day Love the individualized sandwich boards that the staff at KHMR do for their wedding couples.
I started my day hanging out with Brad down at the base of the resort. Love these black and whites – such a timeless thing imo.
Just a slight change from serious to laughing.
On the way up to meet Keltie and her crew at the top, the light was hitting the giant Canadian flag in a pretty incredible way.
Hard to beat Eagle’s Eye on a beautiful fall day.
Keltie was busy getting ready for the day when I arrived.
Classic shot of putting the earrings in.
Keltie getting tied into her dress.
The guests were starting to arrive by this point, so Keltie kept looking out the window from the suite up top to sneak a peak as guests were getting off the gondola
As with Brad, I made Keltie sit for a couple of really quick portraits. Serious to laughing. I must be hilarious! 😉
Then Keltie’s dad came to do a first look with her. I wasn’t crying either!
Heading down the stairs once the guests were seated out on the terrace.
Coming down the aisle.
I always try to get a reaction of the groom when his bride is coming down the aisle as well.
Love a shadowy shot of the ceremony
It was fun to watch Brad during the ceremony. He couldn’t take his eyes of Keltie
Exiting the ceremony with style!
An in-between frame during the family portraits
The wedding party totally thought they were in focus during this shot
Keltie and Brad were enthusiastic sign-ups for my Hiking Bride’s Club. I love, love the black and white image!
A strong portrait of Brad.
Looking back down towards Golden.
The gondola is such a signature part of the mountain that it seemed appropriate to get this shot.
A classic spot up at Kicking Horse.
Some tighter portraits. I try not to only get mountain vistas, as tempting as that can be.
I love watching my couples move from spot to spot. Sometimes that can be more interesting than the actual portrait that I am ‘setting up’
And sometimes I have them move to get a view like this.
A couple of last shots at the top before heading down to the bottom of Kicking Horse.
It was a lovely gondola ride on a perfect fall day.
I did steal them for some quick portraits at the bottom when I saw that we still had great light.
Lots of heartfelt moments during the speeches and toasts.
