I’ve shot a lot of weddings. I shot the majority of them in Fernie. I thought I had seen it all when it came to locations for having the ceremony… but Holly and Lisa’s location probably takes the cake as the most scenic and amazing location I have ever shot. Situated out on a gravel bar, not 100m from their back deck, the views afforded from their ceremony location were absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend any future couples looking to get married in Fernie find out more about this location as a possibility for their own ceremony (***note to couples****… as this is in the middle of a river, the spring runoff can drastically alter the waterways and gravel bars, so it may not actually be feasible to plan for such a location).
To make the day their own, they held the reception held in their back yard. They received special permission to shut down the sidestreet next to their property, set up some event tents, and held one hell of a wicked awesome street party. There were games, bonfires, a shed converted into a bar, and a fantastically catered taco feast.
