From Gemini Photography Ontario…Sarah and Dean took a little cruise on Dean’s parents’ boat and I was lucky enough to capture all of the romance (I was definitely reminded of that one particular scene from The Notebook)! The late summer sun was JUST RIGHT and gave everything it touched a golden hue. After they dipped their toes in the water, they snuggled up by a fire and watched the sun go down.

Having grown up just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Canadian border, I spent much of my childhood + teen and early adulthood falling in love with our neighbors to the north. There’s just something about the breathtaking Canadian landscape that grabs ahold of your heart the very second you lay your eyes upon its beauty… and never lets go. So to say that this Whistler wedding from Anastasia Chomlack has me all kinds of swooning? A serious understatement. It’s Canada perfection with a big ol’ dash of pretty and you can see it all right here in the full gallery.
From Bliss Event + Design… Working with Emma and Aaron was so much fun! They are two very special people, intelligent, fashionable and full of laughter. As many couples do, they came to Whistler for their destination wedding to celebrate their love for the outdoors and each other. Being B.C. home grown they knew that Whistler, and the Four Seasons Resort, would combine the natural beauty of the mountains with the elegance that reflects their style.
Emma was WAY ahead of the game when it came to all of her wedding planning including flowers and decor styling. As she was getting ready to attend business school in New York, looking at a crazy busy year and wouldn’t be with Aaron to discuss wedding details, she hit the planning road early to make sure she could relax and know the details were looked after way ahead of the big day. The day was planned a year in advance. No detail left unturned. It was an amazing day of family and fun, what more could you ask for. Some of my favourite details of the day were the incredible Ceasar bar, the wonderful elderly hotel guest who commented on how handsome the groom’s party was (and said the bride better be beautiful!) and Emma’s speech about how her and Aaron finally found each other years later after meeting in junior high. Such a story!
Emma and Aaron’s white, blush and wood wedding was held at the Four Seasons Resort Whistler. The stunning images were captured by Anastasia Photography. It was incredible to re-live the special moments through their gorgeous photos! Bliss Event + Design created the lovely flower arrangements and ceremony and reception decor. I love the beautiful Japanese inspired paper (I told you she had style!) for the stationery designed by Seulo Creations. Emma’s one desire was to have dark wood harvest tables with chivari chairs. She was uncompromising in this wish (of course Aaron finally gave in!) and what a difference it made. Reflecting the beautiful wood accents from the outdoors. Every detail was perfectly selected to ensure the wedding was beautiful and fun, including a Caesar bar during the cocktails!

There’s a reason that I happen to love fall weddings, and that reason is glaringly obvious in this sweet Saskatchewan affair. Soft fall hues, crisp, cool weather and a crazy gorgeous “I do” celebration? That’s what I call a guaranteed day of lovely, my friends. And when that lovely day is combined with some fabulous fall stylings (think DIY paper florals and mason jar centerpieces) and a bride and groom who could NOT be cuter? Even better. See it all captured by Prairie Lane Photography right here.
From the Bride… Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. From the ceremony through to the final dance, we were filled with joy and surrounded by love. The décor, which was such a true representation of both of us, came together effortlessly. The fall weather cooperated and made for a warm afternoon in the sun with our fantastic bridal party. It was a blessing to have all of our friends and family there to share in the celebration – we were overwhelmed with the love and support of our guests. It truly was the happiest day of our lives!
Noah and I first met more than ten years ago when he was playing CIS volleyball with my older brother. My family often went to watch his volleyball games and I knew Noah as the tallest boy on the team. He came to live at my parents’ farm to work in the summer of 2007 and I didn’t think much of it. He was done with university and I was still in high school; I was his buddy’s little sister and he was my brothers much older friend – nothing more. He was a great family friend and sparks didn’t fly between us until three years later when I was finishing university. I ran into him one evening at the bar, gave him a big hug, and introduced him to my friends as “Noah, the boy I’m going to marry!” We soon began dating and two years later were engaged to be married.
I bought Noah tickets to see George Strait for Christmas 2012 and the concert was in North Dakota so we planned a quick weekend trip to the States. We were on our way back home and had to pass through the tiny town of Rugby, North Dakota. Noah had done his research and realized this small town was actually the Geographical Centre of North America. We stopped to take pictures at the landmark and it was there that Noah proposed!
My best moment of the day was after supper, during the program, when one of our groomsman surprised us with a song he had prepared. I listened to him sing and was brought to tears as I stopped and took in that special moment. I looked around the room and realized that every person we loved was there with us, and all of our preparations had finally come together to create the most wonderful day of our lives.
My favorite wedding detail was the décor. From the mason jars to the antique wooden doors to the antlers, it was all such a true representation of Noah and me.
