Danial & Shelbee | Grande Cache Wedding | Kayla Lynn Photography

When I first met Danial and Shelbee, they told me one of the sweetest proposal stories I have ever heard.  After a long hike up Mount Hamel, Danial had Shelbee look over a cliff to take a photo.  When she turned around, there was Danial on one knee, asking him to marry her!  Then they proceeded to tell me that they were going to get married on top of a mountain for their wedding day, in Grande Cache.  How sweet!  As you can imagine, I’ve been looking forward to their big day since we first met, last year… and I feel so honored to document their special day for them.

Although their wedding plans were drastically altered due to the virus, I am so thankful they chose to get married this year, regardless of the circumstances.  They had a beautiful wedding with their closest family and friends, enjoying their day to the fullest in so many ways.  Right before the ceremony, Danial & Shelbee shared a first look in front of the glowing lake, mountains surrounding them then they enjoyed a fun canoe ride and picnic for two at Grande Cache Lake! 

As we drove closer and closer up the mountain for their ceremony, the views just kept getting better.  I could smell the fresh smell of pine trees, we saw layers of snow layed among the paths and mountains started to appear from left to right.  Then we were finally there… their ceremony site with a beautiful mountain view.  This immediately gave me goosebumps because of how breathtaking the ceremony view was.  The best part?  This was no ordinary mountain view.  As you scroll through the images, the mountain you see as their ceremony backdrop is Mount Hamel, the same mountain where Danial proposed to Shelbee.

To celebrate the reception where they had their toasts, they also shared their first dance and so much more.  Just photographing their reception alone, I could see how loved Danial and Shelbee are!  As I captured the rest of the evening, I couldn’t help but think how much of an honor it is to spend the day with all these sweet people! 

Danial and Shelbee, thank you placing your trust in me to capture your beautiful wedding day!  I wish you both nothing but the absolute best, as you start this new adventure as Mr. and Mrs. Ambrose.  Enjoy a few of my favorites from your big day!
