Excerpt from WedLuxe: Nawel and Graeme wished to be married in a romantic garden! Thus, they surrounded themselves with pink flower petals, glimmering candlelight, and greenery beyond belief on their wedding day. They even used emerald green linens and miniature terrarium centrepieces at the reception to give tables an extra lush, outdoor feel.

Vancouver couple Taranted a peaceful retreat for their guests to celebrate their wedding on June 3, they found exactly what they were after at the Nita Lake Lodge in Whistler. The brides vision was one of white, gold and of course green. The selected the talented Logan Swayze as their photographer and as you can see from the photos below, he captured the big day in a clean and contemporary style that was perfectly suited for the couple. It was such a pleasure for us to work with them on this beautiful wedding, not to mention, a tonne of fun.
This imaginative and creative couple said I Do in the most unconventional way, and we were so thrilled to be part of it!
Last fall, Steph and Dan tied the knot at Nita Lake Lodge with a backdrop of Whistler’s beautiful autumn leaves and majestic mountain tops. This a-typical wedding began like most others do – getting ready, preparing speeches, toasting to days to come, and searching for handkerchiefs… What sets this couple apart from the crowd was the specific day they chose for their wedding… October 31st… Halloween!
Embracing the holiday spirit, the couple encouraged friends and family to trade in their traditional wedding attire for daring costumes and stylish masks, allowing everyone to truly let go for the night and celebrate. The table decor was inspired by "Harry Potter" with potions, witches brew and haunting reminders of Hogwarts. The evening’s atmosphere held a spooky yet glamourous feel, with planning execution and décor efforts made possible from our Weddings by Bluebird team, and décor rentals from Blue Violet Events.
Below are some of the magical moments, caught by the talented Crystal Brown.
This week, we had the pleasure of checking out one of Whistler’s latest, most exclusive spots in town, The Cellar by Araxi. Located downstairs from Bar Oso in the heart of Whistler Village, this intimate and secretive dining room of 40+ seats showcases an incredible selection of wine in a romantic setting.
After our tour, we were swooning about this romantic venue, perfect for a smaller wedding reception or a private rehearsal dinner. Not only is this venue warm, elegant and private, but it is also equipped with a full modern kitchen, a private bar and of course an extensive and very impressive wine list.
For dinner, we dined at Araxi and were mesmerized by a superb five-course tasting menu Chef James Walt had prepared for us. We were seduced by an amazing tuna tartar, a sumptuous risotto, perfectly cooked duck and venison. This was followed by an impressive black forest cake with a black and white chocolate mousse-a most decadent dessert. This combination of a beautiful space, top notch service and a well-executed, beautiful meal has made The Cellar THE new hot spot for an unforgettable Whistler wedding. Thanks to Araxi and Chloe Marshall for great night out for the Weddings by Bluebird team!
