I was a little worried when I left Calgary to drive in to Lake Louise for Nyla & Chance’s wedding at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. It was only early October and it was cold and rainy and I knew once I got past Banff it would just get colder driving into the mountains. I got to the hotel (and wow, is it ever spectacular!) and the temperature was hovering just above ) degrees and I was afraid it was going to be too cold for photos outside. I wandered in to catch the boys getting ready in the awesome suite where the ceremony was to take place and then went over to hang out with Nyla and her sister as they were getting ready. There we lots of pretty details for me to play with too. After the getting ready we headed over the Belvedere Suite where the ceremony was going to take place on the Balcony overlooking Lake Louise and the mountains beyond…
It was a small gathering of close family and friends. I followed Nyla as she snuck toward the suite and then I ran upstairs to capture her entrance! It was a sweet ceremony. Afterwards we braved the cold and rain and took photos outside on the hotel grounds before heading back to the suite for a few more shots. Just as we were packing it up for the day, the sun broke though and we took some of my favourite photos of the day!
Don’t be deceived… it was darn chilly in Lake Louise that day!
I’m not sure if this is a ring shot… or me trying to show off the view from the room… either way, gorgeous!
Ok, this one, however, is ALL about the rings! Look at them! Wow!
Pretty shoes, pretty dress, sparkly earrings… I’m in love..
Such pretty sisters.
Every princess needs someone to put her shoes on for her! Especially on the wedding day.
A little money under the shoe is good luck!
I love how excited Nyla is!
A little toast to get things started!
