Holly & Marco B.
July 29, 2019
How They Met
On Tinder! (It can happen, keep swiping right!)
Holly and Marco had actually planned their elopement before they got engaged. In fact, Holly told us that, “Marco was running out of time before the elopement we had already planned.” In the end, their engagement was casual and cozy. “We got engaged when I had one too many beers at Field House Brewery with some friends.”
The biggest difficult facing the couple while they planned was keeping everything under wraps. The couple had to keep everything a secret so that they could have a non-traditional and intimate ceremony, the celebration with family and friends happening later on.
Their Big Day
Their wedding was photographed by the talented Katey Mac Photography, and she captured the dreamy Whislter glacier they got married atop. You heard that right, Holly and Marco got married on top of an actual glacier in Whistler, BC, that they flew to on a helicopter. The walk down the aisle was tricky for Holly. “It was pretty rocky considering we were on a glacier. But I was very excited and knew that the way I was having my ceremony was the right decision for us.” When Marco saw his bride standing there before him, he admitted that, “Time stopped and everything stood still in the moment.”
The couple only invited two guests to the ceremony, and other than a handful of people no one knew they were getting married. Marco had actually left the engagement surprise so close to the date that Holly told us, “We were only engaged for 16 days before getting married, and the whole thing was planned before we got engaged.” They did still have a reception, but it was a few weeks after the ceremony took place once everyone had been informed of their elopement.
Unique to Them
They got married on a glacier!
Holly did add that another unique and fun experience of their wedding was the surprise element for everyone else. “Eloping and seeing all of our friends and families reactions when we posted the photo on Facebook and Instagram that same day. All of the photos turned out better than I could have imagined!” Thanks, Katey Mac Photography!
