THEY WANTED IT ALL!
I asked Amy and Todd Why they chose Whistler, Sea to Sky Gondola and Callaghan to host their beautiful intimate wedding
And these are the wonderful answers I received
“ So why Whistler....
When we got Engaged and started talking about what kind of wedding we would want to have, it became very clear, very quickly that we wanted to do a small, intimate destination wedding. Now in the beginning we had big dreams of an Italian, Mediterranean sea side wedding, or a grand French Castle. We then realized how difficult it would be for family and friends to be able to join us, So, we decided to save that adventure for the honeymoon! (and I'm so glad we did!) Then we immediately turned our sights turned to the obvious choice, Whistler. Amy grew up coming up there, at all times of the year for every long weekend, school break, and summer vacation. Todd had also had a few family and friend adventures up on the slopes, and was able to join Amy and her family on many trips up in Whistler over the last 9 years! We both have such a great love for not only Whistler, but the outdoors, and the adventures that it brings! We are always happiest when we are outside, weather that be a mountain or forest, an ocean or body of water, or a city. We just love to get out and explore!
Why Sea to Sky Gondola…
Those VIEWS! That BRIDGE! Need I say more!? We instantly fell in love with the dramatic, stunning views, and the idea of the suspension bridge being our aisle! We also loved the idea that we would be giving our guests an adventure! We learned afterwards, that a few guests had never been up a gondola before! It was so fun for us to be a part of!
Again with the breathtaking views! So many great points about this property. The 360 views were the obvious first impression. The fact that the Olympics were held there was another really cool thing to see, we loved the set of rings and the stone man on the property. We loved how remote it was.The Facility was the most beautiful blank slate, that went so well with our organic secret garden theme. The deck was the biggest draw, we saw ourselves dancing all night under the stars and market lights instantly! The staff was so wonderful to work with! They made it easy to turn this space into the most perfect place for the most perfect night.
Thank you for everything! You have been so fantastic to work with! We are loving what we have seen so far! looking forward to looking at them all tonight! Just wish me and Todd could look at them together, but I cant wait a week!!! Let me know if you need anything else from me! Thanks again for everything, you are amazing! "
