It’s becoming more and more rare that we get to photograph weddings close to home. Kelsea and Scott’s wedding took place about 3 minutes from our home in Canmore, at the Silvetip Resort. Holy man, was it worth sticking around for! From the design, to the speeches, to the rocking party, this wedding was one for the ages.
When Lanny dropped me off in the morning to join the girls getting ready, I was in for a treat. The house in which they were getting ready was beautiful, with so many different angles and perspectives to shoot from. But more importantly, Kelsea and her bridal party were full of laughs, smiles and emotion. There is nothing more satisfying to a photographer than photographing genuine emotion, and this morning was full of it. On more than one occasion, Kelsea’s entire bridal party would break out into song and seranade her. It was so special to document this part of the day.
Meanwhile, Lanny joined Scott and his entourage at the driving range. Scott has such a sweet and caring personality. He’s always checking in, making sure everyone is doing okay. He also has a very quirky and cute sense of humour. This came out in his personalized vows, which started with “Kelsea, I like you…. a lot.”
Their sweet little ceremony took place under a blazing sun, surrounded by beautiful mountains and loving friends and family.
After some bubbly with the bridal party, and some bushwhacking with the bride and groom, we headed back to the reception venue, which had been transformed into a visual masterpiece by Julianne Young and her team. We’ve shot at this venue several times, but had never seen it look quite like this. It was pure magic in there. I dare say Kelsea and Scott had “the dream team” for their wedding with Julianne Young Weddings on design and coordination, Parfait Productions on video, Crush Photography on the Photo Booth, and Sugar Rush, who kept the party rocking all night long.
Kelsea and Scott, thank you so much for including us within your dream wedding.
