BEHIND THE BRIDAL BLISS, SAMANTHA NICHOLAS
Gibbons Whistler has been hosting and planning for events of nearly ever kind for years, and just over a year ago officially entered the wedding industry. Samantha joined as principal planner and division director. She brought previous wedding and event planning experience to the table and it’s evident through her work that she is passionate about what she does and is undoubtedly in the right industry. We caught up with her to ask about all things Gibbons Wedding recently. Samantha shared that her favorite and most rewarding part of her role is “to make sure that every one of their couples, has the most special day and goes to plan gracefully.”
WHO IS A GIBBONS WHISTLER BRIDE
The expert, Samantha, tells us that the Gibbons bride is a fun-loving person who doesn’t take things too seriously and likes to do things a bit differently for their wedding. “The bride doesn’t really care about how perfect the wedding is, rather just plans on having a good time and saying “I do” to the love of their life with friends and family around.” Most of the brides are from larger cities such as Vancouver and Seattle that are escaping to Whistler for a destination wedding experience or locals from the Sea to Sky who are familiar with Gibbons Hospitality Group and want that similar treatment that aligns with the company.
