Real Wedding: Tessa & Kyle, Whistler, BC

The other day I was out for a walk, and I felt that first crisp chill of winter air. The type of chill that makes you want to cozy your shoulders right up next to your chin, tuck your hands in your pockets, and motorboat your lips - ya know? I looked at the snow covered mountains in the distance and thought to myself, “Oh yes, winter is near”.

I felt all the exciting feelings of a new season, new aesthetics, new weddings, new cravings, movie releases, and holidays sweep over me.

And then I got all excited to share these winter weddings with you over the next couple of weeks! Winter weddings are in a league of their own when it comes to romance, especially when you’re tucked in the shelter of the mountains. Whistler is arguably her best in the winter months offering world famous ski runs, mountain top chalets, cozy bars to sip your favourite glass of something warm, hot tubs, and memorable apres parties!

Talk about giving your guests the ultimate experience! This is what our team if here for - helping you find the perfect venue, creating the most memorable itinerary, and locking in a schedule of events that feels most like you.

How will Whistler help you tell your love story? Let us help.

In the mean time, get cozy and inspired with this winter wedding from last season.

All the cozy vibes,

Robyn & Cailey


REAL WEDDING: Tessa & Kyle

Venue: Squamish Lil’Wat Cultural Centre

Photography: Kevin McAlary

Day of Coordination: Blue Violet Events

Florals and Decor: Styled by Blue Violet Events, DIY’d and collected by the bride

The Story:

Tessa and Kyle really used their wedding as a way to tell their story. To connect with their guests on an intimate level, and it showed in every detail throughout their day - the vows, the flowers, the place settings. Not a single thing wasn’t intentional, and I loved setting their table for that reason - everything had a story, and it belonged just to them.

The look: Winter Boho Chic

The colour palette for this wedding was everything! Neutrals with pops of deep winter green, burgundy, and copper/metallic accents.

The florals:

Tessa and her bridesmaids put her florals together the day before the wedding all by themselves! We love the idea of getting your girls in the same room, popping some bubbly, putting on your favourite playlist, and playing with flowers! The outcome was beautiful.

The Reception:

Have you ever stepped foot in Istken Hall at the SLCC? It’s a room everyone walks into and says, “WOW”. You instantly feel embraced by nature and hugged by the warmth of the room. It’s a circular room of windows offering beautiful natural light (that your photographer will love!), and the view of trees isn’t terrible either ;)

Tessa and Kyle had their guests seated at round tables outlining the shape of the room, creating an elegant and simple floor plan that really showed off the space. Their tables were dressed with copper accents, vintage vases in white milk glass and clear cut crystal, soft ivory napkins, and textured watercolour place cards to direct guests to their seats.

Simple elegance at it’s finest.

PS. We’ll be at the Vancouver Wedding Fair this January 12-13th with the Squamish Cultural Lil’Wat Cultural Centre, and we’re giving away a FREE 3 HOUR STYLING SESSION that will give you everything you need to create your dream wedding!!! We’re so excited to meet all of our 2019 brides and hear all about your visions.
