Emerald Lake Elopement

Looking through the images of this Emerald Lake elopement, I’m sure you can see why this stunning place is named the way it is. When Larissa and Tyler were searching for that special spot to elope they knew they had found the perfect place after walking through Emerald Lake Lodge.

Eloping at Emerald Lake Lodge

Emerald Lake Lodge is located in Yoho National Park, BC, just outside of Banff, Alberta. Famous for its secluded shores and vivid water, it’s definitely on the list of somewhere you have to visit when road-tripping through the spectacular Canadian Rocky Mountains.

Not only does Emerald Lake offer incredible scenery, but it also offers unique cabins to stay in and a beautiful restaurant right on the lake. This year they have begun offering all-inclusive elopement packages, making the planning process so simple for couples interested in a small, intimate day.

Sun Showers and Misty Mountains

When the weather forecast calls for sun, cloud and rain, you know that you’re in for something special. These days in the mountains are so beautiful to photograph with low clouds drifting through the mountains and ever-changing light.

Larissa and Tyler got ready in a cabin on the point which has a large balcony that wraps around the shores of the lake. It’s the perfect place to watch the clouds drifting through the mountains and people canoeing on the lake. They invited a few of their close friends and family to share their day with them and when it was time, we all made our way out to their ceremony location.

An Intimate Ceremony Followed by Adventure

Tyler’s brother led them through their intimate ceremony and we all celebrated the newlyweds in front of the perfect backdrop! Afterwards, we went exploring around the lodge for their portraits. We took some time to hike around the lake before heading to a secluded area by the river. Meandering through the forests and along the rocks while taking in all that this beautiful area has to offer.

We hope you enjoy looking through this amazing elopement day in the mountains and we loved every moment of documenting this special day.
