Winter Wedding at The Four Seasons Resort, Whistler – Raven and Lanny

May 22, 2012 | admin

For two Texans, a winter wedding at the beautiful Four Seasons Resort in Whistler, Canada was the perfect way to celebrate! Raven and Lanny created a wedding day that featured gorgeous nature-inspired decor; a cozy, comfortable setting for their guests; and a snowy winter wonderland that was wildly different than their Texas home. The whole day (including the furry movie star that popped in to their late-night photo booth!) was beautifully captured by Anastasia Photography.

What were the top three priorities for you in planning your wedding? Decor, food and comfort!

What wedding traditions or cultural traditions did you incorporated into your wedding and what did they mean to you? We didn’t follow many wedding traditions or cultural traditions. We pretty much just did what we wanted and incorporated both of our unique tastes to make the wedding suit our personalities.

Were there any places where you broke the rules in your wedding planning? Why and how did you do that? We decided not to have a wedding cake. We had 56 guests, so rather than have a small cake, we had the Four Seasons make individual portions of desserts to be served at dinner.

What was your biggest wedding planning success? Having our florist, Rembrandt Designs Co. cut trees for the seating at our ceremony!

What was the most important thing that you learned through the wedding planning process and what would you tell other brides-to-be? Hire a good wedding planner. The day of the wedding was so easy and stress-free because Roxanne Cave, of Celebrate Events took care of everything! Also hire a great photographer…pictures last a lifetime!
