elopements intimate weddings & vow renewals

for the adventure(ish) & wild at heart

Icefields Parkway Adventure Session | Cedar Lane Weddings

When Banff National Park is still half frozen, where do you to take Australians on the hunt for open water?

Kate found me through Facebook during their recent trip from Australian and we met in the Icefields Parkway for their Adventure Session.

I knew from our discussions that Kate & Dave really wanted two things:

1. Fun and unposed images
2. Open (unfrozen) water

If you haven’t been to Canada, or the Rocky Mountains before, then you may be surprised to learn we still have snow and our alpine lakes are mostly frozen, even in the middle of May! I knew this could provide a challenge for us, but I thought the best way to get around it would be to roadtrip through my favourite part of Canada – the Icefields Parkway! Each adventure session is so different, and I love that about them! For this session, we just hopped in our cars and drove until we find something new and exciting; jump out and I guided them into playful actions instead of poses. And then in a whirlwind of trying not to get smooshed by other travellers and cars, we’d pack up and it was onto the next location!!

Here are a few of my favourites from my time with these two amazing people. 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.
