It might have been a gamble to marry in the mountains in late autumn, but mother nature smiled on Andrea and Kelly's nuptials and blessed them with the last spectacularly beautiful day of the year. Early sun was shining on their morning ceremony while mist still blanketed the valley below. It was a glorious day to tie the knot.
In this beautiful setting, at the Delta Lodge at Kananaskis, Andrea and Kelly hosted family and friends for their daytime wedding that kicked off with a morning ceremony, followed by a fabulous brunch and reception. Due to the relaxed style of their day, they were able to spend quality time with guests from near and far during the formal portion of their day, venture outside in the afternoon light for portraits, take a short rest, and then rejoin their loved ones for an unofficial hangout that evening. Can you imagine a more laid-back way to celebrate your wedding day?
Andrea and Kelly, thank you so much for inviting me to document your day. It was a joy and a pleasure, and I'm so thrilled you found each other. I know you will be deeply happy together, always :) Andrea, thank you also for the exquisite handmade quilt you gave me for my baby on your own wedding day. I still get teary eyed every time I look at it, touched by your kindness and talent. Kelly, you know this already, but you've found a truly remarkable partner. I've admired Andrea since the first day I met her at McGill University eight years ago, and quickly thought of her as a mentor. She is a natural born leader, a kind soul, and a woman who gets things done. The two of you make an amazing team and lead a life full of adventure and laughter. I wish you all the very best!
