Whistler Gay & Lesbian Weddings


Planning the most momentous day of your life is not something we take lightly. Since same-sex marriage was legalized in Canada in 2003, the open arms and accepting vibe of Whistler has put us on the map as one of the premiere locations for gay and lesbian weddings.

LGBTQ sports enthusiasts, gay and lesbian travel enthusiasts, and same-sex wedding planners flock to the resort town, making Whistler a top same-sex marriage location for couples from all over the world.
