Canyon Ski Resort Wedding
This couple choose a unique location for their ceremony at Canyon Ski Resort. The guests rode the chairlift to the top of the hill for their ceremony with a stunning backdrop of the Red Deer river valley.
Take the Chairlift to the Wedding Ceremony
The best man gave some last minute marriage advice to the groom on the way up the hill.
Mother of the bride and the groom provided some last minute prep to make sure he looked perfect.
Wedding Photographers and Good Light
So wedding photographers are always looking for great light. Canyon Ski resort is one of my favourite wedding venues in Red Deer because there are little pockets on interesting light everywhere. From hard light at the top of the hill, to some shadows in the trees at the bottom, there is always somewhere new to create a great portrait. One of my favourite spots is along the road near the little shack by the river. The trees frame the road nicely and provide some open shade to keep everyone comfortable and soften the light. There are a few other secret treasures around the resort as well.
After plenty of time for portraits at Canyon Ski resort, it’s off to the reception to get the party started with the guests. The best thing about a resort wedding, is everyone get’s to stay and hang out. The bar was open for cocktails right after the ceremony so there was no need to change locations, or worry about finding something to do between the ceremony and cocktail hour. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, resort weddings are the best! Whether it’s local or destination, a private resort is the best way to tie the knot and Canyon ski resort is worth checking out!
