My sister got married!!! My older sister Catherine has made it official, marrying her main squeeze, Jason, in a beautiful west coast wedding in Black Tusk Village, Whistler. The setting was gorgeous…a quiet community of homes and cabins nestled amongst the forest on the outskirts of town. As Cat’s maid of honor, I was on the other side of the camera for a change, but was happy to relax and enjoy the day with my family leaving all creative control to Krista! My younger sister Ashleigh was also a bridesmaid and we were excited to be there with our sister on this very special day. Catherine and Jason decided to see each other prior to the ceremony, so we arranged for them to have their “first look” on a little wooded trail near the water. From there we took advantage of the amazing scenery, shooting their photos amongst the woods, train tracks, cliffs and trails of Black Tusk Village. Their nuptials followed on the bank of a river with mountains serving as the back drop, a spectacular location for a quaint outdoor ceremony. There were a few laughs during the ceremony when Jason pledged to be ‘faceful” instead of “faithful” and Cat put his ring on the wrong hand! But, apart from that, the ceremony was perfect – short and sweet. A tented reception followed where speeches were tearful (for me and the best man!) and we were entertained by my brother Marc-Andre’s impromptu guitar interlude where everyone sang and clapped along to a montage of cute love songs from The Beatles and other artists. Dancing followed in the clubhouse and the party went on all hours of the night…so I was told! A very special thanks to Krista and her dear friend, Sabrina Henry, who did an amazing job capturing the spirit of the day.
To Cat and Jason…congrats! I’m so happy for the two of you; I was honoured to be such a big part of your wedding day.
