Brent and Darus’s had a heart-centered wedding in Banff, Alberta, surrounded by family and friends. It was everything you’d expect from a rustic wedding in Banff: tall trees; beautiful mountain scenery, and a charming lodge.

The intimate ceremony took place in the Wainwright room at Buffalo Mountain Lodge. The room features high ceilings and exposed wood beams. The couple chose simple, rustic decor to complement the space. With smiles from the grooms and the adorable ring bearer and flower girl, not much else was needed!

For the reception, the space was tastefully decorated with dark wood chivari chairs that contrasted the light wood timber beams of the Wapiti Longhouse. Wildflowers in mason jars with wood tree slices were used for the centrepieces. I love that the couple personalized the wedding with their love of wine, by making table numbers utilizing wine bottles. Saved corks became their initials. Their cleverly designed “guest book” was made from reclaimed wood and personalized with a plaque with their names.

As always the photographs from Modern Photography are stand outs! With a mix of fantastic outdoor portraits of the couple and their wedding party, and candid images capturing the love and emotion of day. You won’t want to miss this one!

From Modern Photography

“The day was relaxed and casual and I really liked that it seemed very fitting for these guys. They wanted a party and they wanted to celebrate with their friends and family. Brent and Darus and their wedding party wore custom suits and the grooms had monogrammed shirts.
The ceremony was held inside the lodge and officiated by the lovely Nomi Whalen accented by trees and an arch provided by Special Events Rentals in Banff.  I think picking a venue with its own wine cellar and an amazing menu was a superb choice. Buffalo Mountain Lodge in Banff, up on Tunnel Mountain is simply stunning. Minimal decorating is required as the simple elegance of the lodge is perfect the way it is.
One of my favourite parts of a wedding is the speeches.  I love hearing stories and seeing the connections. Darus and Brent’s family and friends certainly delivered and I think we were all wiping away tears. What followed was a mass exit to the wine cellar to sample some beverages and a wild night of dancing.” ~ Sarah | Modern Photography
