Ann Marie + Marco

Whistler Mountain Wedding
January 29, 2015

I don’t even know where to start with this wedding…I know I’ve used the word “epic” to describe this wedding before and it totally fits.  From the couple’s personalities to the mountaintop ceremony, everything about this wedding was epic!

Ann Marie and Marco are beyond sweet and full of spunk.  We hit it off the moment we met.  It’s like we were meant for each other…seriously!  I knew they had this incredible vision for their Whistler Mountain wedding, a place that has special meaning to them since Marco proposed here.  The logistics around getting them up the Whistler gondola to do a first look didn’t phase them.  And neither did the trip up the Peak chair with their wedding party.  I don’t think they were completely truthful with their bridesmaids and groomsmen about the actual plan for photos – the ride up the chair, the dusty walk to the most perfect spot ever for photos and then the steep hike back up to the Roundhouse.  They must have some good karma points built up because the weather couldn’t have been better.

The day started out with a special visit by a couple of the groomsmen to Ann Marie’s room.  They read a note written by Marco that brought me to tears and made me think he had picked up a new kitty from our local shelter (WAG) for the start of their new life together.  Turns out it was in fact a stuffed donut cat and not the real thing. Everyone was laughing!  The cat even made an appearance at the ceremony and the reception.

Since this wedding was so (yes, I’m going to use “that” word again) epic, it’s going to take me more than one post to tell the story.  Here’s the first half of the day from getting ready, to the first look and the wedding party photos.  More to come later!
