Well, I've been sitting on this most beautiful Whistler wedding for some time now. The challenge to pick photos from my stack was challenging, to say the least. A 120-photo blog post might have been a tad bit over the top! So this past week I dug my heels in, sat down with a nice glass of wine (which I know these 2 would approve of!) and picked the best of the best. The incomparable Crispin Cannon made it almost impossible, thanks Crispin!, but here it is...one of my favourite weddings from summer 2014 of two unique and extraordinary humans and their awesome wedding. Two people that I'm now lucky enough to call friend.
Averil & Andrew were married at Cedarstone Estate in Whistler surrounded by their closest friends and family. Everything about this wedding made sense if you know these two. From Averil's custom head piece tucked into those beautiful locks styled by Brenda Bakker to the most stunning wedding dress I have ever seen! From Andrew's father's custom stationary designed by the man himself!, to the fairy (that's right a fairy!) to entertain the kids, including A + A's cutie pututie daughter T. And I'm still so in LOVE with the peacock colour palette. Definitely a tribute to Averil's sense of style and out of the box vision.
There was laughter, tears, games, wine, fabulous food by creative chef John Ferris owner of The Collective Kitchen. As the lead planner and designer I was lucky to be on the journey with A + A from picking the venue to the gorge flowers on the tables created by our in house florist Megan. I just can't imagine what my summer would have been like without getting to meet and gab with these two. Averil and Andrew, it's wedding couples like you that are the reason I do what I do. You make life just a bit more fun and challenging (in a very good way). Like they say, never a dull moment!
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me experience your day and letting me be part of your life. So looking forward to a glass of wine on your dock this summer!
