We loved Erin and Nick’s Fairmont Chateau Whistler wedding photography! It features everything we love: snow-capped mountains, forests, lakes, pretty much everything in nature! Whistler is one of the reasons why we made the trek in our little car across Canada from Ontario 8 years ago. The chill vibe of the ski town draws us in all the time, and brings us back to ski multiple times a year.
Fairmont Chateau Whistler Wedding
The beauty of Whistler is what drew Erin and Nick to this town to have their wedding at Fairmont Chateau Whistler! Erin is from Georgia, Nick is from Ontario, and living in two different cities, in two different countries, they decided a destination wedding in Whistler was the best option for them. They both got ready in Fairmont Chateau Whistler with hotel rooms facing Blackcomb mountain. They wanted to do a first look overlooking the mountains, so they met at their ceremony location on the Fairmont Whistler Golf course, where there was a 360-degree view of snow-capped mountains.
Secret photo spots around Whistler
They wanted to do portraits first, so they could enjoy all of the events with their guests. It was the Whistler Ski and Snowboard Fest that weekend, so the couple wanted to find a nice quiet place away from the festivities happening in the village. So we took them to take their wedding photos at Green Lake Park. It’s a tiny park, with an epic view of the mountains and lake. While we were doing photos there, a nice couple actually offered their backyard for us to use for some portraits while they were gone for dinner. So we hopped in a car and went to their backyard not knowing what to expect. It was amazing! They had a really beautiful dock, and their view was phenomenal! It was my dream home (come on lottery don’t fail me now…big win!).
Fairmont Whistler Golf Club Wedding Reception
We then headed out to the Fairmont Whistler Golf Club, where they had an intimate ceremony with their closest friends and family (and dog) who all flew in to celebrate this event. The sun was out, it was warm, the harpist was playing, people were in tears, it was gorgeous. It was followed by their reception in The Chalet at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Clubhouse. Erin and Nick’s wedding planner, Celebrate Events, did a great job at decorating the entire event and keeping the day on track. Guests enjoyed a campfire under the bright starry sky, while DJ Pemberton had others dancing up a storm inside. We took the couple out to get a photo at the end of the night, and later found out that the staff was going beyond the call of duty, and actually chasing off bears from approaching the venue…which in my opinion is pretty awesome!
