These two got married at the top of the mountain! But it seemed more like they got married inside of a cloud. No complaints here, I love the white on white. And they stuck around long enough to see the skies clear, the sun set and rise again, the full moon overhead during their overnight in the suite at the Eagle's Eye atop Kicking Horse. I missed out on the views, but so glad Wayne and Megan got to see them all before heading home to Australia.
All parts of Dustin and Vicki's wedding day were pretty great, from the ceremony in the meadow at Heather Mountain Lodge to the photobooth antics (provided by SnapShot). But a real highlight, pun intended, was the heli excursion into the surrounding mountains. Alpine Helicopters took this wedding shoot to new heights.
Looking forward to seeing these two wed later this summer! So is their daughter Mackenze.
Rain and love, laughter and mud, friends and family, orchids and umbrellas. It was that kind of day when Tina and Mike got married in Invermere a couple weeks ago. Both utterly un-phased by the weather, they joked that they may as well have had a January wedding in their home city of Vancouver. But I'm glad they came out this way, to celebrate in the mountains, to share their love with folks from near and far.

I’ve been accepted into The Arctic Circle Residency, a three week program on a boat sailing around Svalbard, Norway in October. It’s an exciting opportunity for me, a chance to make art at sea, to be in a very special and rapidly changing part of the world, and to connect with a new network of international artists.
I’ll be working on a multimedia project (combining photographs and audio recordings) while in Norway, and shooting lots of still images to incorporate into that work. Some of these images will also become prints and/or be integrated into mixed media work with encaustic wax, photo transfers, and paint. I can’t know exactly what the imagery will be like, but I’m anticipating subject matter that would include ice and icebergs, ocean, fjords, and perhaps even a polar bear or two.
In order to help fund the residency, I’m offering pre-sales of original art work that will arise from this adventure. If Arctic-inspired items for your wall sounds appealing (along with a chance to be a patron of the arts), pop on over to my [other] website (clairedibble.com) to weigh the options.
