Jaclyn + Keith; there are so many things I could say about these two. They were like kindred spirits from our first meeting, and after we became acquainted I awaited their wedding day like it was one of my close friends. The day dawned bright and beautiful on the spring Equinox, just as Jaclyn had hoped.
They were married at Pyramid Lake in Jasper, having their ceremony on the Island and the formalities at Pyramid Lake Resort. Their tight knit group of friends were clearly chosen for their family-like connections. Keiths band members served as his groomsmen, and they brought along their guitars to add the flavour of creativity to the afternoon. The day flew by, full of laughter and comraderie. It hardly felt like I was working at all, as sincere moments came naturally and often.
During the reception many laughs and songs were exchanged. One playful song poked fun at the newlyweds, and Keith followed up with a solo song for Jaclyn. I left the two of them for the evening on the docks of Pyramid Lake, as the last shaft of sunlight ducked behind the mountain. The perfect closure to a day of inspiring beauty.
