Janae + Kevin's Elkwater Wedding | Cypress Hills Wedding Photographer

Elkwater weddings can provide such a calm, relaxed atmosphere for your wedding day. It's another reason we enjoy photographing weddings in Cypress Hills. Wedding venues such as Elkwater Lake Lodge, Community Hall and Camp Cookhouse are within easy access from each other and the photo opportunities are endless. Your wedding day will be well spent with your family and wedding party basking in the beautiful scenery of Cypress Hill Interprovincial Park. And that is exactly how we felt at Kevin and Janae's wedding!

This group of bridesmaids and groomsmen had the best chemistry of any bridal party we have ever photographed. Everyone got along so well with each other. There was so much laughter as we explored the park. We were highly, highly, highly entertained by this group and hope all of their guests had as much fun celebrating with Kevin and Janae as we did.

We would like to join these newlyweds in commending Camp Cookhouse who catered their reception. The wedding supper was absolutely superb! We have never seen a family style buffet served at a wedding, so guests could bond while eating delicious food all at the same time - no waiting for your table to be called. Fantastic!

Matt + Shelby's Elkwater Wedding | Cypress Hills Wedding Photographer

Let's just say we were obsessed with Matt and Shelby's fur babies! And we were not the only ones as these two were gently passed around to anyone wanting puppy cuddles before the Elkwater wedding. Cutest little wedding pups we had ever seen. Both had their own wedding outfits to match the bride and groom!

Now, those pups were cute, but one of the best moments during Matt and Shelby's wedding would have been during the actual ceremony. Everything had gone so smoothly until it came time to sign the wedding papers. The bride's expression when she realized they did not have the papers was priceless! Fortunately, the papers were only left at a cabin close by, so the father of the bride sped off to save the day. When he returned it was as if he had ran a marathon and everyone was offering him water as he ran down the steps of the Elkwater Amphitheater. It was such a great sight to see a girl's father jumping to the rescue - especially on her wedding day.

This lucky couple also had the talented Taking August play at their wedding. How cool!
