Michelle and Mark...The Wedding

Mark and Michelle were married in picturesque Banff, Alberta on July 18, 2009 joined by their family and closest friends.  Their ceremony was held at the Tunnel Mountain Reservoir, also known as the Meadow.  It is an absolutely stunning backdrop for a wedding ceremony.  If you are planning a wedding in Banff this is definitely a ceremony spot worth checking out!  I was relieved on their wedding day to see such beautiful sunny skies after threats of rain earlier in the week.  Here are some photos I snapped of details on their day.  Enjoy!

Their custom aisle runner was a huge hit and added a nice pop of colour!  We nailed it down with colour coordinated pegs, which was a good thing considering the amount of wind we were dealing with (as you can see from the picture above).
They had classic harp music playing during their ceremony.  It was the perfect elegant accompaniment to their wedding ceremony.

Mark and Michelle chose a sand ceremony and made sure to include their mothers to honour the special roles each had played in their lives thus far.
Mark and Michelle enjoyed an intimate reception at the divine Buffalo Mountain Lodge.  Michelle and her mother worked hard to create personalized touches throughout which definitely didn't go unnoticed by their guests.

Cuba...the country where they first met.  I always love learning about the love story of the couples I work with.  Michelle and Mark's family and friends clearly love them very much and their love story was nothing short of what Hollywood movies are made of.

I love planning weddings in Banff, Canmore, Kananaskis, and Lake Louise.  If you are planning to get married in one of these fabulous locals and are in need assistance along the way I would love to hear from you!
