Emerald Lake Lodge Wedding – Yoho National Park
Robyn & Dane
When Robyn and Dane first contacted us about documenting their Emerald Lake Lodge Wedding, we knew it was going to be an amazing day. Robyn described her intimate wedding to include wilderness mountain photos with enchanted forest vibes. Something unique to the setting of Yoho National Park and definitly our style of wedding! Dane had proposed in New Zealand, so they wanted to celebrate the mountain landscape that has been an important theme throughout their relationship together.
Emerald Lake Lodge Wedding
It’s hard to find a prettier setting for a wedding than Emerald Lake Lodge. With cabins wrapped around the lake, you can have all of your guests stay on site and feel like you are in the middle of no where. No cell serive, no emails amongst all the beauty of nature. The cermony site is perched high above the bright blue water, with a postcard perfect view of the surrounding peaks. There is so much to see in the area including waterfalls, beautiful rivers and countless hikes to explore. It’s one of our favourite areas in the Canadian Rockies and we were so excited to be a apart of this wonderful day.
Robyn, an Ontario girl, met Dane, an Aussie guy, in Jasper National Park. A story we know too well. After Dane returned to Australia, he realised he would never meet a woman as special as Robyn and he returned to Canada to be with her. They had spent the past five years living in Australia and this year had returned to Ottawa to continue the next steps of their lives. Step one, get married!
With Robyn’s mom by her side as her maid of honour and Dane’s best man Shane, who he travelled to Canada with when he met Robyn. It was the perfect setting to say their vows, exchange rings and take the next steps of their adventure together. Married in the mountains where their love first developed.
After their ceremony we explored around the lake and then all jumped in our van and took a drive drive down Emerald Lake Road. We explored around the Kicking Horse river and Robyn ran through the forest in her white sneakers collecting sticks and leaves with her dress along the way. They were both down for an adventure and we had so much fun exploring with these two.
Back at the lodge, Robyn and Dane were greeted by their small group of family and friends. Gathered from all over the world to celebrate with them. Friends they had made while in Jasper when they met. As well as family from Ontario and Australia that had watched their relationship grow.
It was so special to watch these wonderful group of people come together and we feel so lucky that we were able to create all of these memories of the day. Congratulations Robyn and Dane, it was a pleasure being a part of your wild, enchanting wedding day!
