When people think of destination weddings, they usually think of sunny beaches, mojitos, and pools. For Brooke and Joel, they envisioned something completely different, and I couldn't be more thankful that they brought me along to capture it all.

They chose to get married at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, in beautiful British Columbia, 7,700 feet high on top of a mountain. This venue is the highest elevated venue in all of Canada, and the gondola ride itself up the mountain side was breathtaking in itself.

With over 50 of their family and friends who made the trip out, it was such a great crew. With sight-seeing built in over the 3 hour drive from Calgary Airport, to group skiing, sledding, and meal nights, it was such a great experience to watch everyone enjoy how much this area had to offer.

Despite a few "bumps" leading up to the wedding, they were able to pull it off and have the dream they've envisioned. Everyone helped bring supplies and decor up the gondolas, to the sweetest wedding vows and speeches, it will truly be one I will always remember.
