cody and kellie had a stunning destination wedding in front of a waterfall at grizzly ridge, a private acreage owned by goldie creek estates just outside of invermere, bc.

it was a beautiful day in a gorgeous location and they did a great job of setting up the space for the perfect ambiance. i loved how the chairs were nestled into the trees and the aisle that kellie walked down extended down the long winding path that lead through the forest.

kellie looked so beautiful… i loved her floral crown and sparkly flats. cody was all in black and looked like some sort of cowboy rockstar… it suited him perfectly. cody and kellie’s son mason was in a little suit as well… the bowtie didn’t fit since he’s growing like a weed but you didn’t even miss it with the vest and the shoes. it was just too much! i was excited to see everyone again after their engagement session earlier in the season. mason had been an absolute doll and i knew he was going to be a bit of star at the wedding!

after the ceremony we stayed on the property since there were so many beautiful spots right there for photos. ground covered in moss, trails through the forest, waterfalls… you really can create a beautiful image anywhere here!

the reception was held back at copper point resort and the space looked beautiful. cody and kellie had antlers as bouquet holders on the head table, a danish wedding cake with rings that you twist to determine how many children you will have (i think they got 5 or 6???) and lots of other unique and lovely touches. one of my personal favourites was the c and k letters filled with succulents.

thanks so much for sharing your beautiful day with me cody and kellie! i wish you a life filled with joy and laughter, surrounded by those you love and adore.

joe and tealka are getting married this weekend at eagle ranch resort and i am so excited to spend their wedding day with them! we got together earlier this summer for their engagement session after chatting about their ideas and plans for their big day. they brought along their absolutely sweetheart of a dog  skip and we all trekked out into the wetlands for one of my favourite evening shoots!

i love how easy going and lovely these two are with one another and with their beloved dog. they want to open a rescue sanctuary some day to help animals in need and i can hardly wait until they do, because i can tell how amazing they will be with those little souls. these are the kind of people you remember hanging out with fondly and look forward to having the chance to be around more… they’re inspiring, good people.

i don’t think any of us stopped giggling throughout this entire shoot. joe is hilarious and tealka is the focus of all his love, antics and affections. it’s really amazing to see how they look at one another and how a laughing fit can suddenly turn into a tender moment.

joe and tealka… i loved splashing around in the water, the mud and exploring the shoreline with you two! see you soon!

mike and taylore are a really sweet couple. they celebrated their wedding at radium resort this fall and picked a perfect day for it. we had a forecast for rain on the wedding day all week and then just before the ceremony started, the sun came out and it was a gorgeous day. i just love the mountains for their quick shifts and romantic parting of skies for dramatic effect.

taylore’s mom patty is the amazing woman who takes care of perfectly printing my line of lucent imagery art cards at our local invermere print shop palliser printing. when she contacted me to say that her daughter was getting married i was thrilled to be the one who would capture their day. mike and taylore live in alberta so getting together before september wasn’t possible, but i knew based on my connection with patty that it was going to be a great wedding with a great couple.

the ceremony was sweet and seemed perfect for who these two are and what they are all about… there were some fun moments and a few sweet jokes followed by a great party. the best man popped a bottle of champagne he had gifted mike and taylore years before, stating it had to be saved for their wedding day. at the reception there were touching tearful speeches from people who so clearly love and adore this couple and there were moments that moved the entire room where not a single word was uttered as a father and daughter said everything with a kiss, a hug and a raising of glasses. sometimes there’s so much to share you can’t say a thing.

mike and taylore… i love your obvious joy for life… by the end of the day with you i couldn’t help but feel inspired by the way you live so passionately. it was an honour and a pleasure to spend some time together and i wish you a life fillled with the same energy, excitement and tenderness that i witnessed at your wedding.

jordan and kayli chose panorama resort in the columbia valley for their destination wedding this august. the ceremony was held at the riverbend site near toby creek and despite having a bit of rain, it was a stunning day and we captured beautiful moments of jordan, kayli and their son chase with all of their family and friends.

it was a pleasure spending the day with this group… kayli was an absolute vision in her dress and all of her bridesmaids were lovely. jordan and his guys looked great and enjoyed keeping everyone entertained throughout the day with their playful jokes and commentary. the colours for the wedding were gorgeous as were all of the details and decor. evelyn clark weddings did an amazing job creating the perfect day for jordan and kayli. it was fabulous working with them and seeing how it all came together. little chase was adorable in his suit and melted everyone’s hearts when he walked up to mom and dad as they were signing the registry. i think he managed to get a quick drawing onto the paper before jordan and kayli were announced.

the reception was held at the great hall and looked beautifully transformed. the speeches were amazing, i think everyone laughed and cried… and the room seemed totally captivated by each person who got up to share their stories and best wishes for the bride and groom.

jordan and kayli, congratulations on having a wonderful celebration with an amazing group of people. it was so much fun to spend the day with you and help create these lasting memories!

ckwpe_01_kyla_brown_photography_engagement_destination_invermerecurtis and krista are getting married this coming weekend at panorama resort. their destination wedding will be held outdoors at riverbend near toby creek, surrounded by the beautiful mountains and fresh air of the columbia valley.

i first got to meet these two for their engagement session earlier this summer where we spent the evening roaming the earth with their adorable dog ‘blue’ and looking out over columbia lake. it was windy up there and it made for some dramatic mountain photos. all three looked like super stars with their beautiful curly hair.

i loved that they were camping for the weekend and arrived looking spruced up yet relaxed… it was easy to put themselves together for a session that was all about celebrating their love and hanging out in a place that they enjoy. i also loved that blue went from clean and fluffy to super muddy and totally joyful about it. adorable.

curtis and krista were game for anything as we headed down to the shore for some ‘toes in the water’ shots, ‘climb into the foliage’ shots and ‘meander down the tracks’ shots. it was awesome to be capturing the connection between krista and curtis as they laughed together… eyes sparkling with life. i can hardly wait to see that again this weekend. i suspect the entire day will be filled with moments like that.
