Amanda + Alex - March 7, 2015 - Jasper National Park

The most incredible thing happened to us while we were driving to Amanda + Alex's wedding in Jasper National Park; partway through our drive we were both silenced in awe as a bald eagle crossed our path and flew directly overhead as we travelled down the highway. It wasn't until later that evening during their wedding reception that we learned that in Native American culture, the passing down of Eagle feathers is regarded as a highly sacred and intimate tradition. Amanda and Alex were given eagle feathers by their family members on their wedding day, and I truly believe that having our paths crossed by an eagle earlier that day--especially in the winter--was certainly not a coincidence. kaihla_tonai_intimate_wedding_elopement_photographer_0945
