Letting the natural beauty of Waterton Lakes National Park shine, Joanne and D’Arcy’s mountainside elopement was a breathtaking display of romance and majesty. The landscape, intimate exchange of vows, and sweet serenade shots were photographed by David Guenther. As self-proclaimed hopeless romantics, this couple’s elopement was authentic and beautifully heartfelt.

The Couple: Joanne and D’Arcy

The Wedding: Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada

The Inspiration: Although we love that earthy bohemian feel, we also opted to keep everything natural and simple. We looked at having big floral treatments, the veil dancing in the wind, the runway dress, the Pinterest-perfect decor… and quickly realized that quality photographs of two people very much in love were all we needed. The beautiful view spoke for itself; the love that we share with one another was definitely the star of the day.
