Vintage Elopement Inspiration at Lake Louise |  Lake Louise

This shoot has a vintage flair and is based on the concept of eloping. Vintage, classic, and timeless were used to describe the couple’s style. I have always wanted to photograph an intimate elopement and be on the water for a shoot. I always take pictures of couples with large wedding parties. It was fun to explore the idea of a bride and groom sneaking away to start their love story just the two of them. The bride is wearing two different dresses.ย 

The green wedding dress is handmade from a 1960’s pattern with a pencil skirt and long train. The florist added vintage taffeta to the base of the bouquet to continue with the theme. She also created a display of rich colors to match the emerald look specifically. Keeping with traditions from this era the bride wears a “going away dress”. I love to hear of couples who were married during this time period and the significance of this type of dress as well as their bridal gown. I also liked the idea of a separate dress because it makes this portion of the elopement more significant and memorable. Starting a journey together is just as monumental if not more in the long run than the ceremony itself. At this point the newlywed’s exit straight into the Canadian Rockies in a canoe on Lake Louise. We learned it is very rare to be allowed to photograph on the boats like this. ย We were thrilled to get these last images unobscured by lifejackets, tourists, or bad weather.ย
