As promised, it is time to give you the private tour of Whistler, British Columbia as a wedding destination. The Four Seasons resort is nestled between the Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, a breath taking “Sea to Sky’ panorama of mountain and valley vistas.
Right when you walk in, the lodge-inspired lobby at the Four Seasons Whistler features timber-beam peaked ceilings, and I especially liked the fireplace, highlighted by its floor-to-ceiling stone hearth.
During a private tour of the resort, we were impressed with the amenities available for weddings and receptions. Here are some of the highlights in my view – The Harmony Ballroom, with its sparking dance floor, is great for up to 250 guests and has a pre-function foyer and a heated outdoor terrace for peak views. The outdoor Alpine Cabana offers a whimsical, courtyard setting and is ideal for smaller groups of up to 100. Spectacular forests, glistening glaciers and alpine lakes surround the resort, making it a wedding photographer’s heaven.
For the culture-seeking couple, the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre offers over 30,000 square feet of culture rich function space for up to 500. This space is adjacent to the Four Seasons and is an authentic, First-Nations venue that is spacious yet intimate. And, for the adventure seekers, tanaRi can help together a summer lakeside reception, mountain meadow cocktail party or champagne toasts on a glacier which are perfect spots for a magical and picturesque wedding.
Coming back indoors, we fell in love with the honeymoon suite which perfectly spacious and romantic. The gorgeous fireplace and bathroom complement the suite to make it a relaxing sanctuary for a couple.
From rehearsal dinners to pre-function cocktail parties and wedding receptions, Four Seasons offers a wide range of cuisines from Italian, Indian, and Mongolian BBQ, to name a few. In addition, they also serve regionally inspired cuisine, including prime beef from the grill and spit-roasted game matched by fine local wines.
From what we saw, weddings in Whistler are stunningly beautiful, no matter what the season. In short, Whistler is a location definitely worth creating your love story. tanaRi would be honored to be part of that unforgettable celebration.
