I love it when I get a chance to go back home for a weekend and photograph a Rossland wedding. Having grown up between Trail, Nelson and Rossland, I know the area and scenery very well. Every mountain, every field, every turn of the river are all so familiar… but everything changes when I look at them through the eyes of a wedding photographer. I now see details of the scenery that I might have taken for granted growing up – the colourful wild flowers, the endless flowing grass, the rugged old barns… all have a new form of beauty in this new reality.
We spent Matthew and Kelsey’s wedding day travelling all around the area, from Matthew getting ready in Trail and Kelsey in Montrose, to the ceremony in Rossland and the reception at the Fruitvale Hall. We found a beautiful field to stop and take a few images with the ski resort of Red Mountain in the distance, the place where Matthew and Kelsey got engaged. The weather was amazing, the venues were beautiful and the family and friends made the party a blast. Everything came together perfectly for Matthew and Kelsey as they celebrated the start of the rest of their lives together.
Congratulations Matthew and Kelsey and thank you for making me a part of your beautiful Rossland wedding day!
