Erin and and Brandon on top of Whistler Mountain back in the fall. It was a beautiful crisp day for a Whistler Elopement.
I had a busy season this winter and spring for elopement weddings. Couples came from Australia, Mexico, the UK, from all over the US, and even one from the suburbs of Vancouver, come for a Whistler wedding.
After we came down from the top of Whistler, I grabbed Erin and Brandon and we headed for some nice sunset shots around the Whistler area.
Australians Amanda and Tim come to check out the shores of Green Lake in early December.
Becky, from the UK, e-mailed a photo she had found of a couple surrounded by sparklers and asked if I could do something like that. It’s something I had never done before, but I thought we could give it a go. Linda Marshall of Whistler Wedding Planners went out and bought a huge pile birthday sparklers, and we got a couple of wedding guests to run around them while I kept the shutter of the camera open. The first couple of photos didn’t work because they held the sparklers too high and it blocked Becky and Darren’s faces. Since the shutter was open for 45 seconds, the moving guests with the sparklers didn’t register in the photo, just Becky and Darren, who were under strict instructions not to move.
Emma and Dave came from Australia, along with their three awesome kids, to get married on the Whistler Peak2Peak Gondola.
Michelle and Cesar, from Guadalajara Mexico, wanted to get married in the snow by Whistler’s Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church. The temperature dropped to -15 C along the shores of Green Lake, but they loved it.
Diane and Pranjal, from the Seattle area got married in Whistler’s famed Stone Circle. The Stone Circle has become the go-to location for summer elopement weddings, but it’s still a pretty cool spot in the winter.
Gabby and Tim, from Australia, had a beautiful spring wedding on Nita lake, with officiating from local pastor Jeremy Postal
We went out to my favourite spot along Green Lake. A week earlier, the lake had been frozen over.
