Marie-Claire & Andrew’s Whistler Wedding

Marie-Claire & Andrew’s Whistler wedding was phenomenal. It was our first time photographing a wedding in Whistler and we really enjoyed having new locations and views to photograph. It is just so pretty there. Two things that we learned from working in Whistler is that it is pretty windy and there are lots of mosquitos. Thanks, Sinead, for saving me from being eaten alive!

Marie-Claire & Andrew are a lovely couple. When we were heading to the church, Our Lady of the Mountains, I asked Andrew why they decided to have their wedding in Whistler. He said that they wanted a destination wedding that was still close enough to Vancouver so Marie-Claire’s grandma would be able to be there. Marie-Claire & Andrew love Whistler and spend lots of time there so it made sense to them to get married in such a beautiful place. Marie-Claire and Andrew had friends and family fly in from all over the world for their wedding from Australia, the Phillipines, Switzerland, Ireland and on and on. It was amazing to see.

Flowerz as per usual did an incredible job with Marie-Claire & Andrew’s flowers. Their creations were absolutely amazing. We’ve never seen such a beautiful and unique bouquet as the one they made from Marie-Claire.¬†We loved too the gorgeous green bridesmaids dresses that looked like they were from the Mad Men¬†wardrobe. Marie-Claire’s bridesmaids looked so elegant in the Whistler setting.

After taking portraits with Marie-Claire & Andrew and their wedding party around Lost Lake and the Whistler Village, we headed to the Westin Resort & Spa in Whistler for their reception. Marie-Claire & Andrew had their reception in the Aubergine Grill in the hotel so that their guests could enjoy the beautiful deck and stunning views.

One of my favourite moments of the day was when Marie-Claire’s cousin and maid-of-honour, Sinead, gave her speech. In the middle of it she broke out into a dance and then all of their cousins joined in too. It was such a joyful celebration. Sinead told me later that she put a video of herself doing the dance onto YouTube which she sent to all of their cousins so they could learn the dance. Love it!

All in all, Marie-Claire & Andrew’s wedding day was one that we won’t forget for some time. Thank you, Marie-Claire & Andrew, for sharing it with us. Congratulations!

Isn’t Marie-Claire so beautiful?

I’m so glad that we found this patch of wildflowers which were blooming late this year.

Marie-Claire & Andrew had a beautiful first dance.

I love Sinead in this picture, ducking away from the bouquet after Marie-Claire threw it.

    The photographs were amazingly beautiful especially how gorgeous my daughter, Marie-Claire looked and how dazzingly handsome my new son-in-law, Andrew, was captured on the pictures. I was also so amazed how I look on the pictures and now know how great photographers can work their magic. The facial smiles and laughs were incredibe and this album will surely be one to keep forever. I just hope that whoever has videos of Sinead and the flash mob would post it on YouTube and Ellen or Ophray should invite Sinead to their shows.

I remember playing with a new little baby in Winnipeg,have fond thoghtsof visiting them in B.C. in 1988(especially Flinstone Park!!) and so appreciated Mr. &Mrs. Dy coming out to Manitoba for my wedding three yeas ago. Our families have kept in touch over all the years, but it's been a long time since I've seen Marie Claire. And now look at you! So elegant, all grown up and married. I wish you all the best in your new journey together as husband and wife.
