A Winter Wedding to Remember
The year kicked off with a stunning winter wedding in Canada that left us in awe. This February, we had the pleasure of capturing a rustic mountain wedding in British Columbia that surpassed all expectations. The warm, sunny day was an unexpected delight, allowing for an unforgettable outdoor ceremony amid the breathtaking scenery.
A Rare Winter Wonderland: The Outdoor Ceremony
Outdoor winter ceremonies are a rare occurrence in Canada, but this wedding proved that magic can happen. Set against the backdrop of Fraser River Lodge, a log building that perfectly embodies the rustic charm we adore, the ceremony location was nestled next to a majestic mountain. Matt’s aunt, an officiant from Alberta, officiated their special day, adding a personal touch that meant the world to the couple.
As the wedding day approached, rain and snow filled the air. However, just before the ceremony, the clouds parted to reveal awe-inspiring snow-capped peaks, creating the ideal setting for an outdoor wedding.
Transforming the Venue: Rustic Glamour Meets Country Elegance
The interior of Fraser River Lodge is a blank canvas, allowing couples to truly personalize their wedding day. Ally, the bride, transformed the space into a scene straight out of a wedding magazine. Her exquisite taste in décor was evident in the thousands of candles placed in mason jars and vases both inside and outside the venue. Twinkling lights adorned the ceiling and the backdrop behind the wedding party table, while gold accents complemented the rustic wood, creating a glamorous, country-chic atmosphere.
Ally and Matt shared that they drew inspiration from past weddings we’ve photographed, which was an incredible honour. Their attention to detail was evident throughout their reception, and we couldn’t help but use many of their decorative elements during the portrait session.
Capturing the Magic: Stunning Mountain Backdrops and Beautiful Moments
The mountainous landscape served as the foundation for many of our photographs, enhancing the beauty and emotion of the day. Words can hardly describe the epic nature of Ally and Matt’s wedding; from beginning to end, it was a celebration we’ll never forget.
Ally and Matt, it was an absolute joy working with you on your engagement and wedding. Your love and kindness shine brightly, and we wish you a lifetime of happiness together. Thank you for choosing Pursell Photography to document your incredible wedding at Fraser River Lodge!
