I love the winter wedding. Especially when both the bride and groom are serious winter enthusiasts. Such was the case for Ryan and Kristen. They met while sliding on snow. They come from families of ski patrollers. They followed their love of snow out to Golden to spend a season riding Kicking Horse together. So it seemed appropriate to tie the knot here as well. It was a glorious day, full of sunshine and crisp snow after a week of storms. It was also remarkably cold (like -18°C cold). Their entire posse of friends and family were completely unphased. Too full of love for these two to let the cold get them down.
