There is a certain grace about Ellie that I just love. A down to earth girl (with style) who looks after her second love Macy, her beloved horse (I think Kirk made his way to the top by the time the wedding took place!) Our connection came with such ease. I remember meeting Ellie and Kirk over coffee and I think the actual wedding talk lasted about 5 minutes and then we surprised ourselves by how fast we started talking about life, love and all it’s beauty. I tell you I just love meeting couples, it always make me discover new things, new habits and great core values.
So we connected, we did one of my sexiest/romantic E-Session to date. From that moment on, I knew I was in for a treat for their wedding day. It was elegant, yet casual. Romantic with the proper dose of steam! And all of it surrounded by their closest friends and family at the ever so gorgeous Edgewater Lodge. Thank you Ellie & Kirk for making me a part of your wonderful celebration and for your kind friendship.

If you follow our blog, you’ll have just enjoyed Joanna and Dave’s E-Session. I’m so happy now to finally be able to share their wedding day photos. It was such a fun day and their little girl was so precious.
Thank you for letting me be a part of such an important day. Congratulations to you and your growing family.
Be sure to read some wise words from Joanna below!
How did he propose?
Dave proposed on Valentine’s Day on top of the STORY BRIDGE in Brisbane whislt I was 14 weeks pregnant. We were featured in the 7 oclock news as a Valentines Special. Ever since I moved to Australia we knew we never wanted to be apart.
How did Whistler become your number one choice of where to tie the knot?
We first met in Whistler and really liked the area. We also needed an excuse to get his family and friends over to experience Whistler and the Canadian snow/ mountains. What better way to get them over! We also wanted a wedding that was different than a beach wedding everyone does here in Australia.
What was your criteria when looking for your dress and how did you know once you found it?
I had a budget. I wanted something nice but simple because I was planning on wearing a cape. I didn’t really know that I wanted that particular dress- but loved it once all the pieces were together.
What was the number one piece of advice given to you while planning your wedding and what would you pass on to newly engaged brides to help them in the coming months?
Keep the guest list small, you don’t want to spend your day talking to everyone and feeling pressured that you need to make the rounds. A larger guest list doesn’t mean you will have a better time. It’s the quickest day in your life so make sure there is plenty of time for everything and time to reflect, relax and enjoy every moment. Time is key…
What girl doesn’t appreciate stylin’ shoes? In my line of work, shoes are always photographed and these days, they’re getting funkier and bolder. Or drop dead gorgeous! Take a walk through my top 5 from 2011.
5th Place: Cat in the hat!
4th Place: Keeping it real with a new twist on the old faithful.
3rd Place: A girls best friend…sexy diamond lace.
2nd Place: A little green apple and a whole lot of personality.
1st Place: If there was ever a day to justify this splurge, it’s on your wedding day. Go girls go!
I have to say 2012 is shaping up pretty nicely. Here’s a strong contender for the top 5. How not to sacrifice comfort for fashion or fashion for comfort. The best of both worlds which this lovely bride was so thankful for given that it was a mere -17 degrees at the top of the mountain!
Luxe Mountain Weddings, how exciting! What a great way to start the morning … to download an email saying they loved the Whistler real wedding and wanted to share it with their readers. Thank you so much for the great kick off to 2012. Swing by their totally awesome blog for the rest of the story and other great real weddings.
Amanda and Joey set out to design the eco friendliest wedding they possible could and this led to some very innovative decisions and a very cool wedding. To start, their ceremony, reception and accommodation were all at the Squamish Campground and their invites were custom designed and hand made by Amanda. As was the paper that they were created on. Now that is dedication!
I would say that in the end their shared love for our earth took in every consideration to leave as small a carbon footprint as possible and they definitely succeeded!
Shoes, shoes, shoes. Who doesn’t love them? Especially when they’re this cute.
