This wedding was an ABSOLUTE DREAM! I got to take photos of such an adorable couple (who by the way are head over heels for each other, I mean cmon’ look how they look at each other!!) all while getting some extra turns in at the Kimberley Alpine Resort. I absolutely adore the idea of doing what you love on your wedding day. It’s clear that for Petra and Sam, skiing and snowboarding have a special place in their hearts.
Petra and Sam have had quite a wild ride leading up to their wedding. With the main chair at Kimberley Alpine Resort being burned down, it’s been a tough season for the community of Kimberley. Our town has really pulled together to make the most of a very unfortunate event. As you can imagine, Petra and Sam’s original wedding plan to ride the chairlift up for their ceremony and photos was effected by the fire. Having to roll with the punches, these two decided to make the most of the situation and take a cat ride up for a few turns after their ceremony. We’ve been really fortunate that Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, Castle Mountain Resort, and Revelstoke Mountain Resort lent K.A.R. their cats as an alternate way for skiers to get up the hill, especially for those skiers donned in wedding attire. I was super giddy after this wedding, knowing that I got to spend the day with such lovely people all while doing what I love, skiing and taking the raddest photos of the coolest couple.
Feeling inspired by this rad cat ski wedding?! I would LOVE to photograph more weddings on my skis. Like I said, dream friggin’ job! Backcountry touring, inbounds, or by cat I’m sooo down! For more info, reach out by clicking here!
