These two left the warmth and sunshine of Australia for their winter elopement in Whistler. They were super excited to surprise their family with their secret wedding - everyone thought they were here to hit the slopes! Given that it was summer in Australia, the bride took to Etsy to find the perfect winter accessories for her custom-made dress. That dress...how divine! It was even more stunning in person. And that braid! Kerry Waring took her talents to new heights. Knowing that all the wedding details were taken care of by Sea to Sky Celebrations, they were able to relax and really enjoy ...

When couples plan a winter wedding in Whistler, they're usually hoping for a bit of fresh snow to add that perfect wintery touch. Sometimes though, they get a full blown snow storm like these two did. And it couldn't have been snowing any harder than this! This couple left all the organizing and details up to Sea to Sky Celebrations by booking one of their "Small is Beautiful" elopement packages. They took shelter from the storm in a pretty little cabin for their ceremony. After that it was all about getting out in the snow and having fun! ...

This lovely intimate Whistler wedding was so perfect! The couple had such a calm and loving energy which paired beautifully with the scenery. With the help of Sea to Sky Celebrations, as part of the Small is Beautiful Service, the private dining room at Nita Lake Lodge was transformed into a romantic spot for their ceremony and dinner. With their parents watching, these two said "I Do" to personalized vows elegantly delivered by Jeremy from Whistler Wedding Pastor. Thanks to technology, some family who couldn't make it to the wedding got to enjoy everything as it happened. With the rain falling lightly, we ...

There was so much laughter! All of us, all day long. I don't know the last time I laughed so hard. The day didn't start off so smoothly though. I experienced a small amount of panic when I showed up to the couple's room at the Four Seasons and realized I would be the one tying up the bride's dress. Sure, I've seen it done before...lots. And I've learned a number of tricks along the way that I have happily shared with others when they're faced with the same task. But coaching someone to do it and actually doing it myself ...

When Rachael from Sea to Sky Celebrations initially contacted me about this wedding, she mentioned there would be a Star Wars theme. Specifically, the officiant would be dressed up as a stormtrooper. For real? Sounds like a fun couple! It turns out the groom had really wanted them to get dressed up as characters from Star Wars, but the bride wasn't as keen on the idea. So, the bride arranged to have the officiant get dressed up instead as a surprise to her groom. Jeremy Postal (Whistler Wedding Pastor) was totally up for it and secretly got into costume using the ...

We absolutely fell in love with this couple! They somehow managed to maintain their easy-going, laid-back personalities throughout their entire wedding day. They brought their family and friends back to Whistler, far away from their Aussie roots, where they'd spent a year together almost a decade ago. The sun came out and it was an incredible day. These two are so in-tune with each other that they actually had the exact same vows! Yes, they had a little help from Google, but they were several pages down and they still picked the same ones. And in case you're wondering where Teegan got her ...

This gorgeous New Year's Eve wedding was a blast.  The couple organized a lot of it by text on the plane trip over here - a first for me!  All I knew was that Kerrie had fallen in love with our work and absolutely had to get a photo with the Inukshuk at the top of Whistler.  Perfect, we can do that! We started the day out with a little bit of cloud and the sun came out by the end of the ceremony.  The bride had a classic Hudson's Bay Company blanket to keep her warm.  She opted for the scratchier (but ...

This pretty Whistler elopement was a long time in the making.  The couple had been together for years and finally decided to leave their warm Australian summer for a winter wonderland wedding in Whistler.  The Rainforest Suite at Nita Lake Lodge was the perfect spot to have their intimate ceremony.  The only guest was their daughter which meant that we were officially their witnesses (you'd think we'd know how to fill out the paperwork by now, but the marriage commissioner had to give us a little reminder!)  The bride's stunning Vera Wang gown in a very pretty champagne colour looked gorgeous ...
