jayce and casey had a beautiful fall wedding this past october at eagle ranch resort in invermere. it was a lovely day for their celebration… refreshing in the morning and perfect by the time the ceremony started. as it was a destination wedding with local connections, i visited casey and her girls at her parents vacation home in windermere where they were busy getting ready. the guys had a room nearby at copper point resort, so we popped back into town to find them suiting up just in time for some photos. everyone looked handsome and jayce was all smiles. by the time i got back to see casey she was ready to get into her dress… she was absolutely aglow and radiating like only a bride can.
there was ample entertainment for the wedding guests as the flower girl and ring bearer made their way down the aisle… nothing quite so sweet as two little ones all dressed up for a special day. there was a potted tree ceremony that the mothers came up the gazebo to participate in, followed by jayce and casey. i really like the idea of acknowledging something like a sapling or a tree on the day of a wedding… knowing that the energy and intentions of the day are being infused into it’s roots and branches, and that the tree will grow as a reminder and a symbol of that precious connection.
after the ceremony we took some family formals, which meant that jayce and casey’s dog gunner couldn’t be forgotten. he was just as excited and full of beans as he was at the engagement session but managed to sit still for a few photos with his mom and dad.
for the newly wed photos we started off at lake enid, a local spot not too far from invermere. the fall colours were reflecting on the still water and it was absolutely stunning. the temperature was feeling a bit cool near the water so the girls huddled together under a blanket until the last minute while the gentlemen sipped their drinks and seemed impervious to the cold. we captured some beautiful photos of jayce and casey on the dock from across the lake that look almost painterly… i love how quiet everything gets in the fall.
the reception was held back at eagle ranch and everything looked amazing. the cake was gorgeous and the ambiance was so joyful… everyone was laughing and enjoying themselves… the speeches were sweet and the dancing was lively. it was a great end to a memorable day.
congratulations jayce and casey… i wish you all the best in the future!
