Snowy Elopement at Mount Engadine Lodge

Photographing this spontaneous snowy elopement at Mount Engadine Lodge was such a joy! Aliya and Nadim got in contact with us the week before their day with their last-minute plan to elope in the mountains. We were so excited to make it happen!

These two fun adventurous souls live in Toronto but grew up in Alberta and were home for the winter visiting family. After postponing many times they decided why not get married at home with their family and friends around to celebrate with them! A few days before they had a traditional ceremony in Aliya’s family backyard and then decided to celebrate with an adventure elopement day at Mount Engadine Lodge a few days later. They invited a few of their closest friends out and spent the afternoon making the most of the Spring weather in the mountains. We experienced snow, rain, sun, wind, you name it!

From Snow to Sun and an Incredible Sunset in the Mountains

We watched the wild weather blow through for their ceremony on the picturesque balcony overlooking the mountains. Their friends all took turns in saying a few words which celebrated the beautiful relationship they had built so far. After their ‘I do’s’ and ring exchanges we all wandered down the snowy path to take some fun portraits. The amazing staff at the lodge then built us an outdoor fire and we all toasted to the couple and enjoyed an incredible three course picnic lunch by The Kinetic. The sun came out for us and it was a beautiful afternoon filled with socially distanced laughter and delicious cake!

Their friends then made the drive back to Calgary and we hopped in our cars for a little road trip to get some sunset portraits. As the changing weather drifted through the valley we witnessed the most amazing light in the mountains. It’s always such a beautiful experience right after a storm when everything calms down. We feel so lucky to have created these memories for Aliya and Nadim and we hope you enjoy looking through the images from their intimate day.
