Last weekend we officially ended our season with back to back weddings in Banff.  We spent Friday with Victoria & Ken and their families and friends at the Buffalo Mountain Lodge.  They are both geologists, and that seemed to be the theme woven throughout their day.

Ken’s cuff links.

Victoria & Ken decided to do a first look right before their ceremony.


Ken’s reaction as Victoria came down the aisle.


Geology fact – the rocks at the top of Mt. Rundle (left) are about 364 million years old.  I learned this during their vows.

Solid first kiss.

The next two shots were taken at the same time.  A good example of the benefit of having two photographers.


Here’s another great example; Kevan’s angle… …and mine.

After their pictures it was back to the Buffalo Mountain Lodge for their reception.

The tables were named for different geological periods.


Sam, the Master of Ceremonies.  He came as a well-dressed field geologist.

There was a rock & mineral display as part of their guest-book table.  Seemed fitting to use one of them for their ring shots.  I can’t remember what it was called, but it looked cool (I have no future in science or as a geologist).

The back of their cake layered for the different geological periods.


The dance floor was packed!  Geologists know how to party!

I’m not sure what was going on here.

Usually it’s the groomsmen who lose their shirts at the reception.


Thanks Victoria & Ken for including us in your wedding!
