As I walked into the coffee shop, I saw them right away. I don’t second guest it, I know they’re my wedding couple! Hayley and David have this understated fashion style that I automatically detected. Within minutes, we were like old friends, laughing and getting excited about ideas for their wedding celebration at the Fairmont Whistler and the SLCC.
Hayley had a vision but the main goal was to make sure that her wedding celebration turned into a great family and friends party. Right from the start, this was going to be a family affair. In this family if you don’t have a good sense of humour, you don’t survive. So needless to say, I blended right in knowing that I may have just met my match as far as wit goes and our new friendship began. Within months, we were coming up with stylish ideas that we used for their E-Session. I have never seen so much dry paint go into someone’s mouth!
As the months progressed, with the help of Roxanne from Celebrate Events, the vision began to come alive. It was a winter wonderland wedding with all the gorgeous scenery that Whistler offers in the winter.
I knew about these Christian Louboutin Glitter purple shoes upon our first meeting, I had been told that these were going to be the wild factor and Hayley rocked them!
They had thought of everything from the warm blankets to little hand warmers as favours it was perfect. The roof top terrace at the Fairmont Whistler is an awe-inspiring setting for winter weddings.
After the ceremony, we quickly escaped for a private sleigh ride to embrace the scenery and capture some quiet moments.
The look on Hayley’s face when she first saw the reception decor was one of my favourites. This was her vision coming to life.
Hayley’s father surprised the couple with a blessing from the Lil’wat Nation.
Hands down, best dancing I have witnessed at a wedding, there was not one person sitting.
As I am blessed to create great friendship with my couples, I now know that Hayley and Davis will be welcoming their first child in early February and trust me, this gorgeous belly of hers has not slowed her down one bit in keeping her strong fashion sense. Great job hot mama-to-be!
Thank you for welcoming me in your family.
