When we arrived in Field the Yoho Blow was a howling, the flags were whipping in the wind and the temperatures had dropped to frostbite levels. As we drove the beautiful road that leads to Emerald Lake the temperature in the car showed that it was getting warmer. Emerald Lake was showing off with a brilliant blue sky and a peaceful calm day. It was beautifully quiet. The tall piles of snow were impressive and dressed up perfectly for a winter wonderland wedding. Jamie & Melissa were joined by their parents for an intimate wedding at Emerald Lake Lodge. They said I do amongst the beautiful hand-hewn logs of the historic Yoho Lounge. After officially becoming Mr & Mrs they celebrated with champagne & cake. It felt amazing to celebrate their joyous day with them.
