Out of all the multiple things we rave about at Winter weddings (see two previous blogs about Winter weddings here and here) one of our favourites is the adventurous couple who choose to go downhill following the ceremony. And we mean that literally.
A number of our Winter wedding couples have chosen to switch out heels, snow boots or shoes for ski and snow boots for a run down the slopes, accompanied by vigilant planners and photographers.
And we love it! Other skiers and riders on the slopes love it too. After all, everyone loves to see a bride, and a bride in the full fig of white wedding dress zooming downhill on skis or board, is something that everyone stops to watch. Our skiing and riding couples always get applause and cheers from other riders and skiers, delighted riders on the chairlifts, and the lift crews. Talk about feeling like celebrities.
There’s no need to be nervous with the Sea to Sky Celebrations crew at hand either. One of our planners is a veteran professional level 3 ski instructor and level 2 coach (when she’s not at weddings) and three other planners are qualified instructors. The photographer who took all the photos in our gallery is a former member of the Canadian national freestyle ski team, no less. Other photographers are accomplished skiers or boarders, and all of our team are savvy locals who know their way around our mountains blindfold. We know exactly where to guide our Winter wedding couples for the best photo opportunity spots whether on the slopes, on the Peak, or in the snowy forest glades.
You might almost call us the royalty of on-slope Winter wedding planners.
If you plan a Winter wedding, check out our all-inclusive packages (S2SC is the proud home of the original, prototype all-inclusive wedding packages) and take a peek at our gallery for inspiration, if you think you might brave a Grande Finale downhill run after your ceremony. Oh and of course if time allows, it goes without saying that we know the best places to convene for apres ski libations.
