Fidelma and Daniel contacted us just two weeks before their wedding to see if we would be able to film their elopement at Emerald Lake Lodge, in British Columbia. We’ve always wanted to see Emerald Lake as we’ve heard some much about it, and were really excited that we could make it. It did not disappoint! Emerald Lake is a quiet, rustic, rocky mountain lodge hidden from busyness of the world. The Lodge is nestled alongside of Emerald lake and surrounded by incredible mountain ranges and glaciers. When we arrived there was over a meter of snow in some places! I walked off the marked trail at one point and sunk down in snow up to my waist!
Fidelma and Daniel had a quiet and intimate wedding ceremony in Yoho Lounge, with a spectacular view. After the ceremony, Fidelma surprised Daniel by singing a beautiful Irish folk song. We were blown away! They also performed an incredible Waltz for their first dance. Both Fidelma and Daniel treated us like we were the closest of friends.
We worked alongside our good friends Kirstie and Kevin, from Orange Girl Photography. Nobody knows the Rockies like Kirstie does! She also seems to have a magic power over sunlight, as whenever she went to take a picture, the sun appeared! Be sure to check out her incredible images over on her blog.
