This kind, funny & close-knit family travelled from Seattle to make the love & commitment they have shared for many years official by becoming Mr & Mrs on the shoreline of a frozen lake with mountain views and evergreens as their witnesses. Their vows were heartfelt, funny and uniquely them. The vows they shared inspired both tears and laughter and were my favourite part of their day. I LOVED loved loved Darlene's rose gold sequin wedding dress which looked beautiful sparkling and moving in the wind. Julie from Rocky Mountain Weddings helped them plan their destination mountain elopement so they could show up and enjoy their time in the mountains as a family. Kake by Darci created an elegant tiny wedding cake to be enjoyed at their dinner in Canmore. I so loved our time with these 3 and left with cheeks hurting from laughing.
