Sweet, simple, and stylish, Christine + Struan's Whistler wedding is clean and fresh with a mix of nautical and bohemian inspiration--perfect for a wedding near the water in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Relying on natural elements for inspiration as well as for decor, nothing seems out of place in this open-air wedding, which is exactly what Vale + Vine celebrates. There were a lot of DIY elements incorporated into the wedding as well -- everything from the bride's bouquet to the florals designed to lend elegance and charm to the bridge. And of course Lani Elias brings the ideal photographic approach to the documentation of Christine + Struan's big day, which results in a blend of informality and romance that the couple clearly appreciates. I love mountain weddings, and can't wait to see more featured here on Vale + Vine, so if you know of one that fits the aesthetic of this blog, I would be more than happy to consider it for publication!
