Katie & Sam's winter wedding in Canmore was EPIC! They were married by a dear friend and shared their personal vows in front of a view of the Three Sisters. The sun came out in full force and we witnessed spring melt right before our eyes. They didn't get to have everyone they wanted to invite with them on their day but the people who were there came to help them celebrate and were there in full support as they witnessed these school sweethearts make it official. It was a heartwarming day I will never forget. Katie & Sam hiked through glacier waters to dance on a frozen creek with the sun setting in the mountains as The Tragically Hip played for their first dance.

This was such a sweet wedding gift. When Katie goes to Sam's family cabin she takes to chopping wood and stocking the woodpile. Katie's new father-in-law made this axe just for Katie in a custom pink and even had it engraved with her name.

I was truly amazed at how fearless Katie & Sam were walking through glacier water for photos. Sam in leather shoes no less.
