Banff National Park 5 Year Anniversary

Banff National Park 5 Year Anniversary Session | Cedar Lane Weddings

June 21, 2019. Brittany & Nate came all the way from Alabama to celebrate their 5 Year Anniversary in Banff  at Lake Minnewanka!

What better way to honour & reflect on your own love story, than to get dressed in your finest and have an amazing sunset session during the summer solstice?

Brittany & Nate shared the sweetest most intimate promises with each other. And Canada’s showed off some of our most beautiful scenery we have to offer. We saw a grizzly bear driving up to Lake Minnewanka & what a truly Canadian way to welcome them to Banff National Park! We had the whole lake to ourselves! & stayed out photographing past 10:30 to watch the sunset on the longest day of the year.

Watch this amazing video of their gallery, or take a look through some of my favourites from their session below!
