Our Wedding Day
Together with their families,
Sarah Jane Rideout & Kristian Matthias Bogner
Request Your Presence at the Ceremony & Celebration of their Marriage
in the Mountains of Banff, Alberta
Saturday, September 24th, 2016
Sarah is a fun loving proud east coaster! She grew up sailing on the family boat with her family – Chris, Barb and big brother Tim! While she still loves the ocean, Sarah always felt the west called to her. While she didn’t know it then – she would meet Kristian and decide the mountain life was the life for her! She happily calls Canmore home, but always loves going home to Nova Scotia and Newfoundland to see family and friends!
Kristian grew up in Ontario, living along Lake Erie, playing tennis, beach volleyball and windsurfing. He got involved in the family business of photography about the age he could walk and started his own photography business at age 16. Today he is a Nikon Ambassador and one of the top photographers in the country. The only thing he loves more than photography is his amazing girl Sarah!! Kristian heard the call of the mountains and moved out west to Canmore about 15 years ago, and skiing and biking soon became his new fav sports. Kristian met Sarah at the Lake Louise Ski Hill and his life has never been the same since!!

We have arranged a yellow school bus to take everyone staying in Canmore to the Cave and Basin in Banff and then back to Canmore at the end of the night.
The Cave and Basin – National Historic Site
The Cave and Basin National Historic Site of Canada commemorates the birthplace of Canada’s National Park system, which began here in 1885. The growth and development of Canada’s national parks are celebrated in interactive displays and exhibits. Naturally occurring, warm mineral springs can be found inside the cave, and outside in an emerald coloured basin.
Transportation: We are working on arranging transportation back from The Cave and Basin to Canmore at the end of the night at 1am for all of those who are still celebrating with Kristian & Sarah til the end! We will provide final details on this soon.
*The Venue is part of the National Park so the earliest we could get it was 5pm. But we have it until 1am!! Due to the late start we have decided to make this an adult-only party. So that you can celebrate with us to the fullest!! We do love your children and are happy to discuss this individually or help with babysitting services. With love – Kristian and Sarah
