Courtney & Iain had planned on a lovely Fall wedding in Canmore at the Canmore Nordic Centre – Bill Warren Training Centre lodge. Of course, Mother Nature had slightly different plans as their wedding fell on the Friday just following our record breaking snow storm in September. We affectionately came to refer to it as “Snowtember” given how much snow fell and how un-Fall like it was out there!
Courtney and Iain were a fab Rocky Mountain wedding couple, taking the weather in great stride. We joked that their Banff Winter engagement session helped prep them for an unexpected Winter wedding in September 😉 While the weather meant a last minute change to an indoor ceremony, the most important thing for Courtney and Iain was being able to exchange their vows and make their lifelong commitment to one another before friends and family who’d come from around the world to celebrate!
They started off their day with getting ready at the Silver Creek Lodge suites, then met up at the Canmore Reservoir Dam where Raf designed for them a first look reveal. Then it was time for photo-fun with the wedding party and Court and Iain together before returning for the ceremony. And what an incredible ceremony it was! Everyone commented on what an amazing a job marriage commissioner and life celebrant, Barbara Parker of Threshold Ceremonies had done, crafting such a meaningful, playful, and personalized ceremony. We cannot recommend Barbara more highly!
And once the ceremony was over, everyone headed into a delicious dinner, fun and meaningful speeches, and then, it was time to dance the night away! YAY!
Here is a selection of images from their day – so many goodies – it was hard to narrow it down to just these for you!
