This Elopement in Yoho National Park proves your ‘Plan B’ wedding can be just as amazing as your “Plan A”! Chelsea and Sarah originally planned a destination wedding in Hawaii, but when those plans didn’t work out, they weren’t going to let COVID-19 stop them from getting married. They decided to elope somewhere new, to keep a sense of travel and adventure in their day.
After their ceremony at Takakkaw Falls, Film and Forest Photography guided Chelsea and Sarah on a hike around Emerald Lake where they found a serene lakeside location for portraits, bubbly, & cupcakes! We’re in love with their matching bouquets by Golden Floral Co., which offer the perfect pop of colour against the mountain backdrop.
From the Photographers:
For sunset, we hiked along Emerald Lake to the far end of the shore. Emerald Lake is bustling with visitors and landscape photographers, but hiking to the far end meant we had the place to ourselves!
This was the first time these two had been to Yoho, and it was so special to be able to document that experience for them. In the times of COVID, you can still find an adventure of a lifetime right at your own back door.
