Oh how excited Rob & I were to come back to Alberta to photograph weddings after spending nine months in Dominican Republic! This one would be our first Canadian wedding of the summer and was set in one of the most magical towns of the Rockies – Banff. Nearly all of Phuong & Ben’s wedding guests came from Toronto, Ontario – so it truly had that special destination wedding vibe. Banff’s Rimrock Resort was the perfect wedding venue, with its stunning mountain views, luxurious rooms & decor, fabulous food and … one of the most breathtaking ceremony sites we’ve ever had the pleasure to capture.

The highlight of the day was our gondola adventure to the top of Mount Sulphur – what an unforgettable experience!

Phuong & Ben met through a mutual friend more than a decade ago; where (according to Phuong) Ben fell hopelessly in love with her and she can’t seem to shake him ever since! 🙂 Although Ben might have a slightly different point of view of what actually happened, here they were 10 years later, planning to tie their lives together forever in their favourite place in the world; BANFF!

Rob & I first met Phuong & Ben in Punta Cana this May at Connie & Arto’s wedding, which made us even more excited to document their love some months later – they seem to have a ‘love language’ of their own, at times tender and most caring, at others – playful and endearing. In their love, they are believers that actions speak louder than words (although I bet the words are all there, in the whispers not intended for foreign ears :))

This blog post, as always, is crafted with a whole lotta love. Go on, feel it – for this amazing couple, and this ah-mazing place.
