You may remember Kristen & Spencer from their Peyto Lake Engagement session. This week-end we all got to meet up in Banff for their intimate mountain wedding at Buffalo Mountain Lodge. We started their day off with a first look at Lake Minnewanka and photographs at the lake so that they would be able to join their guests who had travelled from all over for cocktail hour. We were given a stunning day! The smoke moved in a couple days later hiding all of those gorgeous mountain views we were able to experience on their wedding day. The highlight of the day for me was the personal vows that Kristen & Spencer shared with each other during their tunnel mountain meadow ceremony.

Make-up Mel & Dawn Bradley Hair got Kristen wedding ready.

Kristen loves coffee. Kristen's father roasted a special blend of coffee to give everyone as a wedding favour. Darci from Kake by Darci created the cake which included flowers made out of sugar!

Shannon Valente Weddings made sure everything was set up and ran smoothly so that Kristen & Spencer and their families could enjoy the day. She even arranged to have the room set up early enough that the newlyweds could get a sneak peek of it before guests joined them for dinner.
