Hillside Lodge Elopement in Golden BC
This Hillside Lodge Elopement in Golden BC was such a beautiful intimate wedding! When we met Cindy and Charles they were on the hunt for an intimate venue. Somewhere surrounded by trees deep in the mountains. They wanted somewhere quiet and secluded where they could enjoy some quality time with their family. When they came across Hillside Lodge at Chalets just outside of Golden, British Columbia they knew this was just the spot!
Hillside Lodge and Chalets – Rustic Mountain Wedding Venue
Hillside Lodge and Chalets is one of our favourite venues in the mountains. Perched up on a hill overlooking the Blaeberry River, this venue has it all! Their ceremony location backs into a forested area where the guests get an incredible view over the valley. There is a beautiful rustic barn for receptions and a firepit to roast marshmellows. There are cabins spread out on the property for your guests to stay at and fields of daisies to skip through. Ok, we could go on forever! Let’s just say when they opened their doors this year to intimate elopement bookings we were stoked!
River Strolls, Forest Adventures, Lawn Games and a Food Truck!
Cindy and Charles planned the most amazing day. They enjoyed a slow morning getting ready in their separate cabins. Cindy’s neices and nephew popped in and out, excited to see their Aunty walk down the aisle in her beautiful white dress. Their ceremony was simple and beautiful. Having all of their family stay on the property made for such a relaxed day. Everyone was able to wander around the property and enjoy each others company. This made whisking Cindy and Charles away for a few portraits by the river easy. Along the way we found the perfect little stump in the woods and Cindy and Charles were right up for the adventure to get there. From their recent hiking engagament session we knew we could throw pretty much any idea to them and they would be down!

We then headed back and captured some candid moments of this beautiful family playing games. Storm clouds hovered around us but the sun still shone. It had threatened to storm all day but we didn’t feel a single drop until we went inside the barn for dinner. Just another reminder to us to never trust the forcast in the mountains! We had such an amazing day celebrating with Cindy and Charles and we hope you enjoy a look into their amazing elopement day.
