After seeing the first couple of photos from this winter wedding we were hooked.
Kelsey and James recently tied the knot at beautiful Squamish Lil’Wat Cultural Center in Whistler, British Columbia.
Instead of letting the cold deter them, they embraced the chilly weather and the gorgeous little village of Whistler.
The bride tells us why they picked the location, “Jimmy and I are both incredibly social people with tight family bonds and long-time friendships. When it came time to make decisions on where to host our big day, Whistler Village felt like the perfect place that would allow for quality time with our favourite people even in the thick of hosting a wedding. We really treasure the amazing sense of community the village naturally creates, and anytime we went anywhere we ran into our guests. We saw friends and family while tubing at the tube park, on our many trips to Purebread bakery (reason enough to visit Whistler) and while drinking beers at apres-ski. It didn’t hurt that for most of our loved ones it was an excuse for a mini-vacation from nearby Seattle to one of the most beautiful snow-capped mountain backdrops the world has to offer.”
Kelsey goes on to say, “This same feeling of community was important for us to create at the wedding. There definitely wasn’t a theme, but more a vision to have it feel like we were having everyone over for a family style dinner with lots of great candlelight and rustic yummy bites. Little touches like our guests standing in a close circle around us for the ceremony, oysters on the half-shell during cocktail hour, and cafe lights strung behind the head table made it just that much more special.”
Congratulations Kelsey and James. You two sure know how to make the cold look mighty appealing!
