Robin & Eli – Emerald Lake Wedding

What a stunning winter wedding! Robin & Eli are from Seattle currently, but decided to bring their friends and family out to Emerald Lake Lodge for their big day and it was spectacular! They are such a fun, laid-back couple and I had a great time getting to know them a bit better. The whole day they couldn’t stop smiling and laughing at each other, (which makes my job easy) – it was fun to get a peek into their future. Trust me, they’re going to have a blast ;)

The flowers came from Forget Me Not Flowers in Banff – and they stood out so well in the photos (and also matched Robin’s awesome purple rain boots, which she wore under her dress during the day). Their lovely commissioner, Kim Chapman (250.343.6441), came out from Field to do their ceremony, under the (coolest) Chuppah. It was created out of Eli’s sister’s Bat Mitzvah cloth & held up by skis in the snow. It is meant to symbolize the home they will build together (Eli, correct me if I miss anything in the meaning of the traditions I mention!). At the end of the ceremony, they also included the breaking of the glass. It was neat to see how their families were included in the ceremony also – I think it’s so important not to rush through a ceremony but take time to include those parts of your history & family that have brought you to that day. Anyway, it was really fun to be able to be there! I’ve got lots of images to put up, so I think this will be the first of two posts this week :)
