Lauren and Andrew came to us with a crystal clear vision of what they wanted for their wedding day. As Whistler locals, they were super excited to showcase the mountain town they call home. And just to make their day a little more adventurous, they decided to put all their favourite people on a bus and take them to an incredible place in the middle of no where with 360 degree mountain views and not a living soul in sight (except for the grazing cows in the neighbouring paddock).
Their wedding was absolutely stunning in the most understated way, with an emphasis on people, food, and celebration! In our opinion, all the things a wedding should be about.
All the feels rather than all the things.
The Red Barn in Pemberton is a one-of-a-kind venue, and surely worth a look if you're newly engaged! Open fields provide a blank canvas for your dream ceremony, and the natural landscape creates an incredible feast for the eyes. Every time I return to this venue, I am taken aback by the raw beauty that is BC.
Lauren and Andrew made this day their very own with earthy details and an unruffled West Coast vibe that cannot be reproduced! I read this quote recently and immediately their love came to mind:
"You remind me so much of life's simple pleasures and everything effortless and sweet in the world. A good read. Fresh, clean sheets. A quick dip in the sea. A cozy, rainy Sunday morning with a hot cup of coffee and no place to be." - Beau Taplin
Lauren and Andrew - I know your wedding was a small preview of how fun and authentic your entire lives will be lived. Thank you for letting us witness this type of love and take a little piece of your story with us on our journey. You taught us that simplicity is divine.
