Angela & Sidney travelled all the way from Australia to elope at the beautiful Post Hotel in Lake Louise. The Post is my favourite place in Lake Louise because the service & food are amazing and I love that it is private and more of a hidden gem away from the tour buses and crowds. The Post Hotel is particularly romantic in winter and I was thrilled that Angela got the snowy day she had wished for. It was warmer than the freezing cold we had leading up to their day which was perfect for these Australians braving an outdoor ceremony and walking on a frozen Lake Louise for photos. My favourite part of their day was by far their personal vows to each other. I was amazed that they both memorized their vows and shared them without so much as a peek at a written word. Angela & Sidney met rock climbing which was an appropriate start for these adventurous souls. Their playful way of being together was joyful to be around.
