The best 16 wedding photos from 2016

16 Best Fernie Wedding Photos of 2016 We are already 1/9th of the way through 2017, but I thought I’d take a second and look back at 2016.  What a great year! I worked with loads of awesome couples who planned some really special weddings.  We had our fair share of weather woes (I had 4 weddings with helicopter flights scrapped as a result of the weather), but, you can’t control the weather.

How to make lemondade in the mountains..

Sometimes, the weather doesn’t always go as planned, or hoped for… Jesper and Ashley’s wedding was planned to be an outdoor ceremony with the three of us taking off on a helicopter flight afterwards for portraits, and landing at the base of Fernie Alpine Resort for their grand entrance to the Rusty Edge for their reception.  Instead, Mother Nature forced the ceremony indoors, and required that the heli flight be cancelled.
