Cindy and Bryan drove all the way from Washington to get married in a mountain meadow in Banff. What's even more amazing is that they drove all that distance with a wedding cake that Cindy made! Talk about nerve wracking. I'm happy to report that their wedding cake arrived in perfect condition and that they were given a stunning day to say I do in front of Mount Rundle. These kind people share a beautiful connection and getting to be present when they shared their personal vows with each other was inspiring. The falls below were roaring and the wind was being rowdy so their vows were private and shared only with each other. I'm so happy we got to share their beautiful day in the mountains.

I loved seeing how close these sisters are. Cindy wore her sister's veil for her something borrowed.

We started their day with a first look at Surprise Corner. Cindy and Bryan chose to share their personal vows with each other before their ceremony with their loved ones. The falls were roaring from below and the wind was rowdy so only the two of them could hear their vows to each other which was perfect.

I loved this moment of Cindy as she prepared to walk down the aisle for the ceremony.

The views from the Ivor Petrak room gave guests a stunning view to admire for the reception.
