Banff Winter Elopement at Tunnel Mountain

This Banff Winter Elopement at Tunnel Mountain was one of the warmest winter weddings we have photographed in a long time. The sun was shining and the weather was perfect for this dreamy mountain elopement at one of our favourite outdoor ceremony locations in the area. This was Hana and Nikk’s first time visiting Banff. They had come out from Maryland, USA for a winter trip with their snowboards and wedding gear ready for an adventure. 

Their Story

When Hana and Nikk first got in contact with us we instantly knew they were our kind of people. They met working at a rafting company, their first date was at a climbing gym and they wanted none of the hoopla involved in a big wedding. Just them, the mountains and a story to write home about. There were so many beautiful details in this elopement, we hardly know where to begin. Nikk is a talented graphic designer and custom made the best little Yeti mugs for them both. The logo he designed had elements that represented their adventures together up to this point in their lives. He also handmade Hana’s hairpiece which matched his boutonnière by carving wood and painting it to make it look like bone. 

An outdoor winter ceremony in the mountains

Hana tied up her winter boots by the fire and walked out in the snow to meet Nikk. The sun lit up her beautiful white dress but not nearly enough to distract from her smile! Klaus led them through a lovely intimate ceremony and they both shared their favourite things about each other. Afterwards, we took in the amazing view as we soaked up all the afternoon winter sun. We went on a little adventure through the woods for some more photos and then went back to their room at Hidden Ridge Resort to warm up by the fire with a hot chocolate. We feel so lucky to have shared this amazing day with this positive and fun couple and we hope you enjoy a look into their winter wedding in the mountains!
