I’m so excited to finally share Jake + Krystal’s beautiful Island Lake Lodge Wedding in Fernie, BC. This wedding was one of our highlights of the 2018 wedding season. From the majestic mountain views, to the laughs we shared getting know Jake + Krystal’s nearest and dearest, to all the genuine love and emotion, every part of this wedding was out of a dream.
Since Jake + Krystal reside in Chicago we initially chatted over FaceTime about their Island Lake Lodge wedding and instantly loved what they had planned and their relaxed approach to their day. We were pretty surprised we hadn’t ever come across the Island Lake Lodge in Fernie. With friends and family in the area we are in Fernie all the time, we have camped there countless times and thought we knew most of the tucked away gems the area has to offer.
We were so excited to start our planning for this Island Lake Lodge wedding so we headed down for a location scout before their wedding. We were totally shocked by the rain forest vibes you get as you drive through the 800 year old cedar forest to get to the lodge. It’s completely hidden and tucked away in the wilderness with insanely beautiful views of the rocky mountains. If you’re wedding venue hunting and looking for a venue with mountain views, accommodation for your guests and gourmet cuisine, the Island Lake Lodge is amazing.
The entire day was so full of love and laughs … and games, cards, chess, croquet … An intense round of cards even broke out on the dance floor. Thanks so much for having us Jake + Krystal!
