Unlike a traditional big wedding, planning a mountain elopement doesn’t take a ton of time. It might seem crazy, but you can plan a mountain elopement in a month or three! Having a great mountain elopement planner like Something New Weddings certainly helps (and is easier), but it’s also something you can do on your own too. The most important things to take care of first is your officiant, the venue where your ceremony will take place & your photographer. After that it all falls into place, easy! Book hair & make-up, order flowers, arrange for dinner plans and you’re rolling! It also helps if you have access to something awesome to wear too, but there’s are plenty of places that you can get formal wear that doesn’t take 6 months! Marigny & Dustin traveled from the Southern US to have a mountain elopement at Emerald Lake Lodge mid-October. Weather in the mountains changes fast and it was chilly and quite windy on their wedding day, even though it was far more pleasant weather-wise the day before. It’s just too hard to predict what Mother Nature is going to throw at us! They toughed out the cold and wind for their outdoor ceremony and we wandered around Emerald Lake Lodge & the natural bridge for photos. I love October in the mountains, it’s just beautiful and not as busy as the summer. These are some of my favourite photos from Marigny & Dustin’s Emerald Lake Lodge mountain elopement!
Are you newly engaged, overwhelmed at the thought of a big hometown wedding & are thinking about a mountain elopement?? I would love to photograph your wedding in the Canadian Rocky Mountains! Please get in touch for more information on Banff elopement wedding packages or for other outdoor wedding destinations like Canmore, Kananaskis, Emerald Lake, Lake Louise, Peyto Lake or Moraine Lake. If you aren’t looking for a wedding photographer, I also do vacation portrait sessions in the area!
