I drove out to the Fairmont Hot Springs the morning of Jolyn and Ryan’s wedding. It was such a beautiful drive. There wasn’t any traffic at all on my drive from Calgary to the Hot Springs. Jolyn and Ryan were in the wedding party of Katelyn and Taylor’s wedding. I had gotten to know them at Katelyn and Taylor’s wedding and I was absolutely thrilled when they asked me to be apart of their wedding as well. I arrived at the house where all the girls were getting ready. Everyone was in high spirits for the day and excited to get to the ceremony. Jolyn and Ryan have 4 kids and some of my favorite photos are of Jolyn helping them with their coats before heading off to the ceremony. They just have the sweetest smiles while looking at their mom.
It was a little chilly on the mountain at their ceremony but with the stunning views you didn’t feel the cold to much. Jolyn and Ryan had a beautiful ceremony with all their family and friends to share it with. The four kids ended up signing the marriage certificate as well. That was the first time I had seen that at wedding and I do hope to possibly see it at more weddings! We explored the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort after the ceremony for a few photos. Jolyn didn’t care to much about having to trek through the snow… as long as she got into a great photo spot for photos with Ryan. She even convinced Ryan to go down the steep hill, so she could get a few photos by the rocks and river. It was perfect!
They spent the night dancing after the speeches at the reception. Here are a few photos from their special day!
