This summer we were super excited to fly out to Canada, to be a part of the wedding of our very close friends Matt and Lara. To them, the mountains have always played a big part in their lives. Living in British Columbia, Canada, both enjoy snowboarding and spending time outside. So, when choosing their wedding location, it seemed only natural to marry in Whistler, B.C. to use their surroundings and the majestic beauty that was right at their doorstep.
Matt and Lara decided to have a first look prior to their wedding ceremony. They felt that sharing that moment alone, instead of waiting to see each other at the venue, really helped calm them. This encounter made what was to come ahead for the day that more special because instead of coming into it as two separate people they felt they were completely on the same wavelength.
There were many moments from this day that stand out in the minds of Matt and Lara. From the first look to the moment when they were pronounced husband and wife and their dog started barking even the dance party that ensued after dinner. But above all, the biggest highlight for this wonderful couple was having their friends and family all together in the same place at one time which they felt was truly the most memorable.
For those who are currently planning for their wedding, the couples advice would be to enjoy every minute of it! Being with everyone you care about and being able to share this precious moment will truly be the best day of your life.
Bride & Groom chose our Moonlit Invitation Series for their wedding stationery.
