VENDORS:

Photographer: 6:8 Photography
Officiant: Shannon Tackas
Ceremony: Lost Boys Cafe – Fernie Alpine Resort
Reception: Lizard Creek Lodge

Recap:

Cailyn and Ian currently reside in Australia but met at Fernie Alpine Resort years ago when they both worked there during the winter.  We were first contacted by Cailyn’s sister who was looking for photographers in Fernie and proposed to us the idea of the small, intimate wedding at the Lost Boys Cafe (located at the summit of the Timber Chair) with their families and then doing the pictures right on the hill, snowboarding right to the bottom.  An opportunity to shoot a wedding in our ski boots and ski down the mountain after?!  Sure!

Cailyn had everything prepared for her winter wedding all the way down to a custom-tailored wedding dress / hat / and hand warmer.  Her dress was so vibrant it made the snow look dirty!  Following the ceremony we took the chair up to the top of the White Pass and, while doing some portraits right around closing time, the ski patrol came over and told us we had to get off the mountain immediately.  Apparently there was an inbound helicopter that was going to be doing avalanche control!  We finished our pictures at the ski hill, they snowboarded down in style, and we spent some time exploring around Fernie with them prior to their reception.
