Chris and Andrea | sylvan lake winter wedding

Sometimes winter in Alberta can be cold and brown or even warm and brown but Chris and Andrea had one of the most beautifully snowy winter days ever.  Yes, it was cold at -30 degrees celsius for the whole day but it was worth it for the beauty.  I totally expected some complaining to be going on as we trudged through the snow and cold but with hand warmers, toe warmers, the girls in boots and the chapel close by for warming up in the wedding party gave it all they had.  🙂

I loved the choice they made for the wedding venue.  Andrea’s family grew up spending summers at Camp Kuriakos in Sylvan Lake so what better way to spend time with family on your wedding day.  Many of the guests came a few days early to stay in the bunk houses and cook together in the kitchen for meals.  To me, spending time together is what weddings are all about and on the wedding day it is often difficult to find the time to visit so this was perfect!  We could tell during the speeches that these 2 families value the company of their loved ones and seemed to fit together perfectly. Chris and Andrea are very fortunate.

A special thank you to my friend Gabe of Perspectiveye who volunteered last minute to help out when family circumstances prevented my other friend/photographer from being able to make it.
