elopements intimate weddings & vow renewals

for the adventure(ish) & wild at heart

Emerald Lake & Natural Bridge Adventure Session | Cedar Lane Weddings

Emerald Lake is seriously one of my favourite places in the whole world – so much so that when I get married I will be eloping there!
My family helped settle the area (a small mining town nearby called Field) over 180-200 years ago so I was THRILLED when Brenda & Jim agreed to meet with me here for their adventure session – right before everything froze this fall!

It was a whirlwind of a trip as I was in Victoria BC and actually changed my flight home to be back in time as I had to fly from Victoria to Calgary and then drive from Calgary back into BC to Emerald Lake! But so so worth it. Have you ever been to either Emerald Lake or the Natural Bridge before? I highly recommend it!

And take note to my future life-partner! When we elope, this is where it will be <3

Here are a few of my favourites from my time with these two amazing people who are eloping at Lake Tahoe later this summer! I hope you love them as much as I do!



Thank you for visiting my Blog, I am Melissa – the girl behind Cedar Lane Weddings! Are you planning your elopement and looking for someone to help guide you through process?

There’s nothing I love more than helping couples create an authentic intimate wedding day of your dreams, where you conquer an amazing adventure together, and have the privacy & safety to truly be yourselves. Elopements bring the focus of a wedding day back to you two as a couple, and don’t have the “performance” or “production” vibe of a normal, traditional wedding day. You can design the best day for the two of you, from start to finish, and at some point in your grand adventure, be in a gorgeous & unique location and commit your lives to each other.
