You want us to photograph your wedding where?  
Oh, local historic building, central to Rossland's downtown with ornate plaster ceiling, arched windows taller than any human, stone fireplace, old rad's, wood floors ...
... hmmmm, alright. 

In their own words:
Chris is an electrician and I am a Financial Services Rep.  We spend all day doing work or managing other peoples lives. When it comes to our own lives we like to spend time at home when we can to wind down, until I get stir crazy and insist we go out somewhere, anywhere to occupy our time. Disadvantage to living in a small town: you roam around and buy things you don't need. We are both really good at this.  I would say it almost is a hobby of ours. Like buying wine cause it has a really cool label or movies that we rarely get around to watching. We are both outgoing people and love spending time with our friends. We travel quite a bit through summer with our friends going to ball tourney's/camping, or family trips to Vancouver, Calgary, Seattle and the island for my "City Fix" and were able to take a trip to England and Spain last year to visit my parents. It was our first big trip together with our daughter.  We love the beach and touring the markets and taking photos of all the old architecture and churches. This winter we will be going away to Mexico over New Years with 10 couples. We will be making it sort of an unofficial honeymoon for us. We love watching and playing sports together- we are both very competitive and Chris has the annoying trait of being good at everything...hard to compete with but we have fun doing it. We take time to be goofy with one another and especially Sofia.
