Whistler is an iconic location for good reason: it’s truly stunning. Nestled between soaring, snow-capped peaks and the emerald ocean, lush with cedar forests, this mountain town is home to a jaw-dropping landscape.
And the truth is, it also gets a lot of rain.
There’s the possibility (here, and anywhere!) of at least a little drizzle, and at most a big storm, happening on your big day. And here’s the thing: rain on your wedding day is a good thing.
Misty and majestic. Soft and romantic. There’s a reason the most iconic cinematic kisses happen in the rain! We’re absolutely certain that your photos are going to be absolutely stunning.
Not only that, but your photographer will be delighted to shoot in the rain. The overcast skies and soft lighting are actually ideal for gorgeous photos, the circumstances are much easier for your photographer to work with compared to bright, sunny skies.
And, fingers crossed, we may even catch some rainbows!
Get ready to swoon: rain creates an atmosphere that’s cozy, elegant, and romantic. Don’t you just love the sound of rain on a roof? We can light some candles, cozy up in a luxurious sweater, and enjoy the ambience.
Not only that, but a storm draws people together with a shared story, so your guests will feel a joyful camaraderie with each other.
No wilted flowers for you! Heat and humidity can really shorten the lifespan of your bouquet and centrepieces, meaning droopy or less-than-lively flowers by the late afternoon.
Not on your watch! The cool, damp, drizzly air will keep those gorgeous flowers perky and vibrant all day and all night long.
Because of the cooler temperature, your guests are going to feel so at ease! Instead of sweaty, overheated, and stir-crazy, they’ll be comfortable and happy.
Not only that, but during allergy season, rain can reduce pollen and other airborne allergens. This means no red eyes and noses in photos — not to mention that you and your guests can comfortably enjoy yourselves!
Your Whistler Wedding Collective photographer will come fully prepared for a beautiful drizzly day: we’re fully stocked with elegant clear umbrellas for you and your wedding party, gumboots for both you and us, and a whole lot of excitement to be shooting in such gorgeous, ambient, and romantic weather.
Oh, and haven’t you heard? Rain on your wedding day means good luck for your lifetime ahead!
