This Lake Louise elopement was an absolute dream and such a wonderful display of Reid + Becca’s love for each other. Despite stunning details, the simplicity of the day kept their commitment to each other the focus. Becca spent the afternoon sipping champagne in her Chateau Lake Louise room and opening a series of thoughtful cards and gifts from Reid. She snuck a peek and grinned from the window as Mitchell and Reid left the hotel and began their walk to their first look location.
With family and the commissioner stuck in highway traffic, Reid + Becca were able to spend some quiet moments together before their ceremony. Words cannot describe the look on Reid’s face as he turned around and saw his bride for the first time (you will just have to look at the photos + film).
Their ceremony was short and oh so sweet. They were surrounded by a handful of immediate family and their two beautiful dogs in a little clearing overlooking Lake Louise. Their vows seriously tugged on our heartstrings, and when it came time to exchange rings, Becca was in for a little surprise. In addition to pulling his and her bands out of the bag, Reid pulled out a simple rose gold band that Becca evidently wasn’t expecting. In that moment there was no other option but to kiss mid-ceremony, and it was perfect. The rest of the evening was spent wandering around the lake, avoiding the crowds of tourists and celebrating their marriage.
We had such a wonderful time with Becca + Reid, and are forever grateful for the opportunity to be a part of their day. It was so refreshing for our creativity and the intimacy of the day truly kept their relationship at the core of the celebration. Not everyone can or wants to elope (it didn’t make sense for us, we understand), but if you are strongly considering it, let us know. We would love to explore and celebrate with you!
