From Spread Love Events...When Jana asked Spread Love Events to help style her wedding we were thrilled. This gorgeous bride and dear friend of ours was marrying her university sweetheart and we were honored to be part of this special day. Working with Rebecca Amber Photography was amazing and as the photos show!
Jana and Colin are university sweethearts both originally from Ontario who began their love adventure while studying at the University of Victoria, then moving to Whistler B.C., Maui, and are now based in Vancouver, B.C. With friends and family traveling from across Canada and the world, Whistler B.C. was the natural gathering place for them and their guests. They were married at the base of the mountain in Creekside and the reception took place in the famous (and their favorite) watering hole Dusty’s.
Alongside Jana, Spread Love Events dreamed up details to enhance their celebration. We wanted to create a rustic and romantic atmosphere that would dress up the venue and reflected their personal style, while remaining true to the character of the space and their desire to cut loose. The ceremony took place at the base of the mountain and cocktail reception on the upper patio of Dusty’s. Guests enjoyed signature cocktails and a giant Jenga game while mingling before dinner. Dinner took place inside Dusty's, where the space was transformed by intimate long tables and flickering mercury glass candle light. As they’d hoped, like many night’s before, Jana and Colin, and their friends and family danced into the night to the sweet tunes of the Hair Farmers.
From the Bride...When we were planning for our wedding we knew we wanted to get married somewhere that was special to us. After spending a few ski seasons bumming around Whistler, B.C. in our post-university years it seemed like an obvious choice! As for the venue, we chose our favorite local watering hole - Dusty's. It is the perfect mix of rustic and romantic. Not to mention, it is nestled right at the base of Whistler Creek with a gorgeous view of Whistler mountain. What was most important to us was to have a casual venue in a beautiful place - we wanted our guests to feel comfortable and ready to cut loose. We wanted a celebration and that is exactly what we got!
As for all the details, Spread Love Events helped us soften the look of our venue with romantic florals and personal details. It's one thing to dream up the vision you want for your wedding - imagining all the little decor details coming together and being perfect, however it's another to have this actually come true. Sarah and Ashley of Spread Love Events made our wedding beautiful beyond words. Everything was thoughtfully placed and considered, but not at all overdone. From the florals, to the ribbon wands, our guest book table, to dessert layout, you name it....absolutely beautiful work. Our wedding was truly an amazing day and exactly as we’d hoped. We were so grateful to our friends, family and talented vendors who helped make it possible!
