A Canadian Mountain Wedding at The Fairmont

Today, we are so thrilled to be sharing this epic Canadian wedding with you all. Jenny and Josh were married at the top of Whistler, in Roundhouse Lodge.This mountain wedding will make you swoon!

They got ready at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler, and had their first look out in the gardens at the base of Whistler Mountain. They went to Rainbow Lake for their portrait session, because it’s one of the best locations to get a full view of the mountain landscape. Jenny had a long, pink veil which added a special touch to her attire! Their ceremony was outdoors, on the patio of Roundhouse Lodge, and they had a live performer sing music while they walked down the aisle together.

Everyone headed down the gondola to their reception at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, in Whistler. Their reception was in a round room in the cultural centre. Josh is an RCMP so he dressed in uniform for their first dance, where they also had a live band, Soul Stream, singing up a storm and keeping the dance floor full all night.This sweet couple planned a fabulous, fun party!

Vintage Purple Outdoor Wedding in B.C.

Today, we are falling head over heels for Tess and Ed’s stunning outdoor wedding. Nestled within the mountains of British Columbia, this serene lakeside setting is a bit of heaven on earth.

Their intimate evening wedding incorporated only their closest friends and family. They also made sure to include an array of thoughtful details in their wedding decor, and even had an adorable vintage theme that set the tone for their big day. We are swooning over the various purple, teal, and creamy white hues displayed within their theme. Everything about Tess and Ed’s special day feels so romantic. We are loving these colors for spring! They used our wedding invitations to match their elegant vintage vision.

You can tell from the wonderful wedding photography, just how much this family loves one another. Their wedding toasts were all filled with so much laughter and sweet tears. This joyful bunch capped off the night with their favorite Dairy Queen ice cream cake, and enjoyed each others company until the early morning.

Cool Toned Outdoor Wedding Inspiration

Today, we are thrilled to share this outdoor wedding inspiration with you. These newlywed’s big day incorporated cool tones like greens and blues, along with gorgeous bouquets and boutonnieres. The outdoor location took advantage of the green landscape that nearly melted into every photograph captured by Eileen K Photography. How cute are the personalized bride and groom koozies for the reception? Scroll right on through so you don’t miss a thing from this outdoor wedding.

From the Photographer…

Mallory and Bryan’s wedding was nearly all DIY. The bouquets and boutonnieres were put together by the bride and her family, table center pieces had flowers from the Mother of the Brides’ garden, the brides dress was second hand and all the bridesmaids wore unique dresses.

We love how simple and intimate this destination wedding is.
