Joined by their kids, it was more than just the union of Jacinta and Stephen and they wanted to ensure the kids were there for the two days we had planned. It all started with a serendipitous discovery of a captivating video by Rachel King Films, which showcased the magic of a Whistler elopement.

I could see the excitement in Jacinta and Stephen’s eyes as they conveyed how important it was not only to celebrate their love but also to keep their children entertained. This desire led us to the stunning Rainbow Glacier, where the couple embarked on a thrilling helicopter ride and exchanged heartfelt, unscripted vows. It was a truly magical moment that I knew I had to capture in its raw and emotional beauty.
For Jacinta and Stephen, this two-day adventure was about more than just their union; it was about merging their families and creating cherished memories together. Every activity, from the helicopter ride to the snowmobile tours, was a testament to their love and commitment.
