Kristen & Dylan so obviously adore each other and it's very sweet to get to witness in person. They are lovely to be around. They have known each other since high school. Kristen and one of her best friends from high school had always said that one day they would go to Banff together...little did they know back then that their dream trip to the mountains would come in the form of a magical winter wedding. Kristen and Dylan invited their families and close friends from California to meet them in the mountains where they said I do in front of snow covered trees and Mount Burgess. It was a day filled with a lot of love and laughter and one I feel very lucky to have witnessed.

We showed up in a bit of a blizzard as Kristen's make-up was being finished but then just before it was time to walk down the aisle blue skies and sunshine made an appearance to show off the freshly dusted snow. It was a dramatic transformation.

Instead of a champagne toast Kristen & Dylan treated their guests to hot chocolate with the option of Baileys. Perfectly fitting for a winter wedding!
