Jessica + Mike: Squamish Lil’Wat Cultural Center

I’ve been dying to share this wedding since the day it took place last July because it includes many of my all-time favorites. From the amazing couple, stunning bouquet designs + one of our favorite venues to the delicious family-style dinner + outgoing band that rocked the night away, this Whistler wedding was unforgettable. The cherry on top is that Tomasz Wagner was there to capture it morning to night – and when he has the couple climbing up rock faces in heels, you know it’s going to be sooooooo good.

The natural beauty of Whistler, wood-filled venue as well as the bride’s love for herbs + request for lots of greenery with a pop of yellow inspired all of the decor + floral. Marcie from Bliss Events outdid herself designing one of the most beautiful + unique set of bouquets that we have ever seen. Their luscious overgrown look is stunning and the colours managed to make the bride’s beautiful blue eyes stand out even more.

To keep the feeling of “having a big dinner party” with their closest family + friends, we opted for family-style dinner service which worked perfectly for the menu which is one of the best meals I have ever had. Jessica + Mike are major foodies and their love for a big plate of various hearty salads and a lesser amount of meat was ideal for the hot mid-July wedding day. Whistler Cooks customized the menu with the most delicious pasta salad, quinoa salad, chopped salad + mediterranean tomato salad alongside sage dusted chicken + herb dijon potatoes. I still crave this dinner every day.

As always, the day goes by in a flash but when you have a ridiculously awesome band to rock the reception into the wee hours, the day seems to go on forever – in a good way. Guests were having to hang their shirts out the windows to dry the sweat/cool off and the rest of the guests had ties around their heads or were singing at the top of their lungs to classic tunes such as Journey brought to life by The Last Scene. One heck of a party.

Other highlights included refreshing custom strawberry cocktails served to guests post ceremony, talking the venue into letting us use an old fish drying rack as the ceremony altar which subtly tied in the artifacts showcased within the Squamish Lil’Wat Cultural Center as well as Tomasz’s extremely popular polaroid photobooth which captured some pretty hilarious moments.

Kind words:

“Jessica was always incredibly responsive to all our questions and made our whole wedding something we could enjoy rather than worry about. From finding us our wonderful photographer that perfectly fit our style, to coordinating our venue and our caterers, she did it all. She and her team made the day so easy and memorable, and Jessica had all the little things covered before we ever had to think of them. It was so smooth and stress-free, our parents even thanked her in their wedding toast for making sure we could all enjoy such a special day. We highly recommend that anyone who is considering a planner for their wedding should hire someone, and we can’t recommend Jessica Minnie and Petite Pearl highly enough.”
