Rocky Mountain Helicopter Wedding

Vanessa and Nathan’s wedding day was one of the most amazing experiences we have been a part of, with their wedding ceremony at the Mount Robson amphitheatre (360 degree mountain views!), reception at the Tete Jaune Hall, and a helicopter trip to Mount Terry Fox for their wedding portraits at the top of the Rocky Mountains.

The girls were getting ready at the Glacier Inn near Tete Jaune, with lots of laughs and happy moments throughout the morning. Shauna even got to share her love of vintage jewellery with Vanessa and her bridesmaids, as many of them had beautiful heirloom antique rings that Shauna was more than happy to take photos of for them.

Meanwhile, the guys were getting ready at the Valemount Retreat, but not before heading out to Mount Robson to put up the wedding signs to help make sure the guests could find the ceremony location at the Robson Shadows Amphitheatre. There was low lying clouds on the day of the wedding, so Mount Robson wasn’t visible in the background, but it didn’t take away from a truly amazing location with mountain views in all directions.

After their wedding ceremony we headed down the hill to the Fraser River for some bridal party photos which was a beautiful clear mountain green-blue – a fantastic backdrop for some wedding photos. From there it was a quick trip back to Valemount where we met our pilot at the Robson Helimagic helicopter base for the flight up to the top of Mount Terry Fox. It had snowed a few days before and while it had melted down along the highway there was still snow on the ground at our photo location, which only added to the beauty of it all. Other than the wind it was completely silent up there, and with views in all directions it was definitely one of the most amazing experiences we have been a part of. We all took a moment at the end to soak it all in before heading back down.

By this time all the guests had arrived at the Tete Jaune Hall for the wedding reception, and were waiting outside for the grand helicopter entrance as we descended upon the hall. From there it was time for dinner, and then on to the wedding speeches which involved a number of heartfelt moments during speeches along with a very entertaining freestyle rap from the bride’s sisters. Before we knew it the dancing began and everyone had a great time dancing the night away. Here are some of our favourite photos from a truly fantastic wedding day. Thank you so much to Vanessa & Nathan for having us there to be a part of your day!

Tete Jaune – Valemount BC Mountain Wedding

Alyssa and Nick’s wedding took place with the scenic Rocky Mountain backdrop of the Tete Jaune, Mount Robson, and Valemount areas on a beautiful fall wedding day in September. We always have such a great time with out of town weddings, and this was one of those wedding days that reminds us why we love being wedding photographers. Such a happy couple, with supporting and loving families, in a magical setting where there is just not enough time to take all the photos we would like to. We seriously could have kept going for days and days, but of course there is always next time! Congratulations once again to Alyssa & Nick, and thank you so much for letting us be a part of your amazing wedding day!

The day started early for the girls with a trip to the Unique Boutique Salon & Spa in Valemount for their hair & makeup. From the salon the girls headed over to The Glacier Inn to finish getting ready. What a perfect location it was with an open floor plan and huge fireplace.

Meanwhile, the guys went for a relaxing breakfast before heading back to the wedding ceremony location at the Tete Jaune Lodge along the banks of the Fraser River. There were still a lot of last minute details to work on at the ceremony site, and they did a great job putting the finishing touches on the decorations and arbour. Such an amazing scenic backdrop for a wedding!

Here are some photos from their beautiful mountain wedding day:

From there it was time for the newlywed couple photos – which is always our favourite part of the day. We had scouted ahead of time around the Tete Jaune area looking for the perfect wedding photo locations. They had provided lots of time and wanted to try out a few different locations for their photos. Our first stop was a beautiful field with an amazing view of the Rocky Mountains in the background. The wind was blowing and we could see the clouds moving in fast, but it all just helped add to the amazing atmosphere of the day.

With the rain moving in we had to make a quick change of plans, so decided to head towards the Mount Robson, with a few stops along the way in an enchanted mossy forest along the river, an amazing wooden wall, and then to the site of their romantic proposal during a previous camping trip. But by this time the rain was coming down pretty good, and it was time to head back towards Tete Jaune for the reception. But on the way back the skies started to clear and the sun came out. Someone had just made a comment that it would be awesome if we could see a rainbow, when suddenly it appeared behind us in the car mirror! We were very excited to pull over, and ended up capturing some of our favourite photos from the entire summer. What an amazingly perfect mountain wedding scene it was!

Their wedding reception was held at the Tete Jaune Community Hall, which is the type of wedding venue we always love to photograph in. It’s a decent sized venue with plain white roof and walls. And they did a great job draping fabric under the lights to make a great diffused light atmosphere. It was the perfect location to cap off an amazing day, and DJ Ant had the place rocking as everyone danced the night away.
