ali & phil's snowboard wedding & reception; kootenays wedding photographer

1st look in formal-wear

something old - vintage etsy snowflake pin on gown 
something new - Salomon snowboard from Phil
something borrowed - Spy ski goggles
something blue - thermal underwear - that is a first!

Post ceremony Ali and Phil shared a private snowboard down to Poochie's cabin (up Red chair, Red Mountain Resort), hand-in-hand.  They took a moment to soak in the scenery, point out their little town, hang out on the front porch and display their athletic prowess by leaping off the cabin ledge.   Ali, with frozen flowers in hand.

The couple then proceeded to The Prestige Mountain Resort to change into formal wear for their First Look - in formal wear - and walk about Rossland.  They shared a heart-shaped sprinkle cookie at Cafe Books West, paid their respects to Olas, the skier statue outside the old Bank of Montreal, and hit up RossVegas Boardshop to name a few. 

They topped off the night at The Red Room Lounge where friends and Altitude Entertainment greeted them with a champagne toast and stunning mountain-inspired wedding cake, perfectly suited for their Rossland snowboard wedding.
