Whistler wedding...

my first wedding of the year! and what a special one it was.  my bride and groom, Samara and TJ are one of the most unique and special couples I have had the pleasure of working with.  these two were meant to be together, and one look at how they make each other smile confirms it.  their jobs in the U.S. Army brought them together and they quickly fell in love... rather than eloping, they decided to exchange their vows and share their wedding day with a small group of family and friends in Whistler.  every aspect of their day was meaningful and intimate, yet full of love and laughter and an honour to be a part of.  to add to the pleasure of it all, was the company of my very good friend, the uber-talented and all round fabulous photographer, Patricia Lyons who came up from Virginia to shoot it with me and hang out for the weekend in Whistler. it wouldn't have been the same without her! 

I love a bride who wears Uggs on her wedding day!

the very handsome and happy groom, who rarely stopped smiling all day.

the ceremony was held in front of the stone fireplace in the Wine Room of the Fairmont Chateau Whistler. could there be a more romantic setting?

the happy couple... as avid snowboarders, you can see why a destination wedding in Whistler was an easy choice!

the intimate reception was held in the Chalet at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler. the entire day was flawlessly coordinated by my favourite wedding planner in Whistler, the talented Roxanne of Celebrate Events.

one of my favourite aspects of the evening celebrations was a horse drawn sleigh ride with Outdoor Adventures in Whistler. what an incredible night for a moonlit sleigh ride!

Samara and TJ, I wish you both a lifetime of love and laughter... stay safe, be well and keep smiling!
