Winter weddings, despite some possible logistical challenges, really give a unique and different feeling to a typical wedding.  When the weather cooperates there’s a sharp & pure feeling to the images.

Sarah & Adrian’s winter wedding in Fernie was our first wedding of 2014 and was a great way to start the year!  Our day started out with them up at the Elk View Lodge just outside of Fernie where they had a nice relaxed morning getting ready.

If you’re familiar with the Elk View Lodge, you’ll know that the driveway up to it is pretty steep with a tight turn about half-way up.  Sarah & Adrian arranged a limo to move them around for the day, and it had a few challenges getting down the driveway with the groomsmen (I had already gone to the church to get ready for the ceremony)!  Sarah & Adrian took it in stride and it gave Kevan a few extra minutes to get some relaxed portraits of Sarah before the ceremony.

Their ceremony was at the Anglican Church.  In all the weddings we’ve shot, this church is still one of my favourites because the light that filters in is just perfect!

Unfortunately Adrian’s grandfather couldn’t be at the wedding in person, but he still managed to be part of the day thanks to FaceTime!

I love Kevan’s angle for the first kiss.

A shout out to the wedding party (bridesmaids in particular) who endured the cold for these pictures!  One of the girls forgot to bring warm boots for pictures, so they all suffered together and stayed in their heels!

No wedding at the Elk View Lodge would be complete without some pictures from the roof-top patio!

Tons of laughs during their speeches, especially at the emcee’s rendition of how Sarah and Adrian met!

…and there were a few tears as well.

Congratulations again thank you for including us in such a great day!
