Kananaskis Wedding Photography at Nakoda Lodge
Back we go to June 2010 for this awesome wedding at Nakoda on the Lake in Kananaskis at the foot of the Rocky Mountains on the way to Canmore that I second shot with John Boccabella Photography. UPDATE – this venue is no longer available for weddings, what a shame! It was a super windy day as I drove toward the mountains after leaving Calgary. Luckily the weather didn’t get anymore unruly, although I think the kids definitely struggled with trying to walk around in the wind! The ceremony was outside the lodge on a huge lawn overlooking the lake and the mountains… beautiful! The reception was inside the rustic lodge and was beautifully decorated for Mike and Kaliegh’s reception. I got to take lots of detail shots, so that was pretty awesome and I got photograph the guys getting ready, which was super fun!
Here’s the classic watching-youtube-trying-to-figure-out-how-to-tie-a-windsor-knot shot… it’s not so easy!
The best man had some pretty awesome cuff links!
Check out the guys in the background with their shirts pulled tighter with gaffer tape… that stuff is a life saver!
The winds were so intense during the ceremony I thought the poor little ringbearer and flower girl were going to get blown over as they walked down the aisle!
The maid of honour had a fun job of trying to keep Kaliegh’s veil under control in the winds!
It’s a hard job being in the wedding party… can’t blame the little guy for getting sleepy!
Can you tell by the look on Mike’s face that the best part is coming up next?
Yup, it’s the kiss!
The kids had lots of fun blowing and chasing bubbles after the ceremony.
This little one was so cute all dressed up, that the kids couldn’t resist trying to pet her!
Kaleigh’s bouquet was gorgeous, but wow, was it ever huge! Got a bit heavy after carrying it for a while!
Such pretty rings! Even better without that pesky ant crawling all over it!
More awesome flowers at the reception!
And check out the cake! It was fabulous!
Ok, so this was the view I got when I drove back home to Edmonton after the wedding. It’s pretty, but not as pretty as the mountains!!
Mike and Kaliegh had such a great wedding, I’m so happy John let me tag along to capture it with him!
