Moraine Lake Wedding Video in Banff

At first she didn’t think he liked her

Alan and Lacy’s magical Moraine Lake wedding in Banff was the final act in a story that began far to the south, in Tennessee. They met when Lacy spotted an attractive guy in her class from California. At first, she didn’t think he liked her. But a love of the outdoors and Harry Potter parties soon changed everything.

Getting Ready and First Look in Banff

Travel, the outdoors, and adventure. All three are very important in the lives of Alan and Lacy. The pair loves to get out and explore as often as they can. For their intimate wedding, they wanted to explore somewhere new. A Moraine Lake wedding in Banff seemed like the perfect choice. September at high altitudes in the Canadian Rockies is a much different environment than hot, humid Tennessee… They brought along immediate family (and a couple of furry friends). Having us their meant they’d have a wedding video to share back home.

Alan and Lacy both got ready at the the Rundlestone Lodge in Banff. We filmed a little with each in separate rooms, including short video interviews to capture a little of their story and thoughts on their big day. Once both were dressed and ready to go, we shifted just outside the lodge to a nearby park to film their First Look.

At first, the weather wasn’t looking too promising at the higher elevation of Moraine Lake. Cloudy with a possibility of rain and snow. We departed Banff and headed up the highway to Lake Louise. We met up with the officiant Patrick Smiley there. Everybody boarded a bus that would take us further up the mountain to Moraine Lake. Private vehicles are no longer permitted. In a way, this has actually helped us. No more worries about parking!

No doubt the temperatures lakeside were a little chillier than the folks from Tennessee and California were used to. But they were all troopers, and stood alongside Lacy and Alan as we filmed them exchanging their vows. There were a few flurries, but nothing too bad. Thankfully the clouds parted to reveal spectacular views of the spectacular wall of mountains around Moraine Lake.

Photo/Video Creative Session at Moraine Lake

With the ceremony and group photos complete, family and friends explored the lake or warmed up in the bus. Beth of ENV Photography went with us and the couple to the top of the rockpile that overlooks the lake. It’s a relatively easy climb up a path and stairs. We spent an hour or so with Alan and Lacy, capturing video footage of the pair of them in their natural environment: the outdoors.

With everything done, we headed back down the path to rejoin the others at the waiting bus. Lacy and Alan headed off for a family dinner to celebrated, and we packed up our gear and went home.

How We Protect The Video Footage We’ve Captured

As always, the first thing we do on return is make two local backup copies of all audio and video footage captured on the day. We film with cameras that record simultaneously to two separate cards. This makes sure that even if one card were to fail, we’d still have footage. The next thing we do is backup all footage offsite to online storage. This ensures every couple’s precious memories from their dream day are well protected.

Thanks to Alan and Lacy for including us in your special day. All the best with your dental practice in Nashville and future married life!
