Wedding Testimonials & Albums
Thanks so much for the wonderful services provided on Saturday. Your staff are talented and friendly and very professional as well.
We had a wonderful day but it all started with our experience in your salon in the morning!
Thank you so much for all that you did for me!!! I loved my hair and make up.
I have to thank you sincerely for being so professional to work with. There’s so much to keep track of on the big day and Cassandra arrived early and worked hard all afternoon. She was very kind and I must admit that my hair didn’t turn out how I originally wanted from the picture I had showed her. But my hair was also very different from the model in the photo and I never invested in a full consultation with Cassandra as practice. But she clearly knew what she was doing, keeping the style elegant and simple because there was so much detailing in my dress and jewelry. The end result ended up being much more perfect than what I originally was looking for :). My MOH and bridesmaid were very impressed with their hair as well. And I danced ALL night long and my hair didn’t fall out at all so great job, Cassandra
We had a perfect wedding day thank-you very much. The ladies were amazing from the trial run to the actual day..they made us feel so comfortable and I was so nervous for hair and makeup as I don’t usually have it done..it’s out of my comfort zone so to speak and they made me feel so at ease. They did an amazing job.
I just wanted to say thank you for organizing my hair and make up for my wedding yesterday! I don’t think I ever caught the name of the lady that did my hair and make up but she was awesome [Stylist – Hilary]! I loved the final result and didn’t feel like I was wearing make up at all and my hair stayed up perfectly even with the skiing!
I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help doing our hairstyles for my wedding on 19th December. The bridesmaids looked phenomenal and I loved my hairdo, which still looked great when my huge headpiece decided enough was enough! Thank you so much again.. everything was so perfect!
I booked makeup for my Matron of Honour and myself for my wedding this past summer at Brew Creek Centre. The whole team was amazing right from the time I initially inquired right down to the after service. They suggested Clare who was one of their most experienced makeup artists and I went for an initial trial. The makeup was done a bit too light for my taste but we discussed this and she completely understood. She asked me to send some example of the look I wanted. She came to Brew Creek the day of my wedding and she was so professional, patient and fun! She absolutely nailed it! I loved the makeup she did as it was dramatic but not artificial looking in anyway. Everybody remarked on how great our makeup looked. I would highly recommend Farfalla and I will certainly use them in the future.
I cannot speak highly enough of the entire team at Farfalla. The communication with the salon manager, Joanna, was fantastic and she was able to arrange services on very short notice for myself and three bridesmaids (as well as styling for the groom!). Due to my silly schedule I wasn’t able to arrange a proper trial, and like a typical bride I was very anxious about my hair and makeup not turning out as I had hoped. The talented stylists and estheticians absolutely over-delivered. They were prompt, professional, and had us all looking amazing. They created exactly the look that I was hoping for and I was absolutely ecstatic. I can’t thank the ladies at Farfalla enough! And I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. (Stylist and makeup artist team: Genevieve Dubois bridal hair stylist, Rebekah Manley stylist, Clare Priestland makeup artist)
Once again thank you for an incredible day – the ladies did an outstanding job and we all felt so beautiful.
Cassandra and Hayley were fantastic. They were pro, calm and did an amazing job gettin’ us all prettied up!! I’m so glad I paid the extra to have them come to Drumkeeran as it just made the flow of the day so much easier! That is a pretty great service you guys provide.
It was such a great morning followed by a wonderful day – your services were incredible and I felt so beautiful 🙂
The Farfalla team was friendly, professional and fun to be around on the wedding day. I was very impressed with the quality of services and attention to detail. Everyone looked their very best and the hairstyles survived the evening despite the rain and mist! Special thanks to Genevieve who was outstanding, and whom I would definitely work with again for any events in Whistler.
Thank you so much. It was so beautiful and the girl that did our makeup (I completely forget her name!) was phenomenal. We looked amazing thanks to you.
Thank you again,
Thank you so much for your amazing work! Make up and hair was perfect!
Everyone at the wedding was very impressed!

Thank you for my hair and make up on my big day yesterday. Hilary was lovely and did a great job, exactly what I wanted. Thanks very much, and I’d happily recommend Farfalla to anyone based on my experience.
All the very best,
I was extremely pleased with the services provided by Cassandra and Emily on the day of my wedding, as well as the Farfalla wedding team during my planning stages. Both ladies were very professional, listened to me and my maid of honour’s wishes and delivered exactly the look each of us was hoping to achieve. They really helped to make the preparation part of the day more relaxing and we could not have been happier with the outcome.
All the best,
- Corrine Harris, from Whistler
I was really happy with the way my makeup looked. It wasn’t too heavy or too light. I felt like it was a much better version of how I normally wear my makeup, which was exactly what I wanted. I didn’t want to look at my photos later and think “hmmm, that’s not really me.” This was perfect!
I had an amazing day, thank you for being a part of it 🙂
- Christine & Daniel
My wedding was like a fairy tale; picture perfect in every way. Thanks to your team who did an amazing job. My hair stayed in place even following the ceremony when 60 + of us skied down the mountain.
We had the most wonderful day. Genevieve did an amazing job with my hair. It held together perfectly till the end without being uncomfortable – not an easy task considering the challenges we faced with my volume of hair (although it did take a rather long time to remove the pins 🙂
Thanks again – especially to Genevieve. She was so patient.
Hello Farfalla team,
I did have an unforgettable wedding by having your assistance giving me the wonderful help on my bridal hair and make up – special thanks to Hilary & Emily for the amazing work they have done (I hope the names are correct?!)
Thanks again for your great assistance & service!
- Tiffany - 2013
Thank you for all your help during the planning process 🙂
I was so pleased with how all of our hair and makeup looked! I’ve cc’d our wonderful photographer Tomasz and he’ll provide you with a good quality photo you can use.
Please feel free to discuss with him directly. And thank you for the hair and makeup styling!
All the best,
The day was a huge hit and so was the hair & makeup (by Cassandra and Clare)!
The hair held-up all night, and I didn’t have a headache from the dozens of pins.
The makeup smudged slightly under the eyes but that was an easy fix with some q-tips, but the rest of the face held up all night as well.
Thank you again for your help.
Thank you so much for doing my hair and make-up for my wedding day. Everyone in the salon was so gracious and accommodating. I especially appreciate you accommodating our additional family members on such short notice. I really loved how my hair and make-up came out ((by Cassandra and Clare). It was exactly what I wanted, subtle, soft and beautiful….not too much but not too little…perfect. Thanks a million times over for everything!
- Angelique Rogat
My friend Kathy had her hair and makeup done at Farfalla early Saturday for her wedding. I was there with her… your team was amazing! It was a wonderful day.
Just a quick note to say a big thank you to you and Cassandra and Emily for the amazing hair and makeup on my Wedding day. The girls were very professional and did a fantastic job. The hair and makeup held up all day despite being out in the wind and snow. We very much appreciated the fact that you were so understanding when we had to change the date of our wedding.
Thanks again for doing such a great job!
Yes we had a wonderful day, it was truly amazing! Every time we are up at Whistler (for ski season) we cant help but think of our wedding day.
Feedback: I was very pleased with your services, Cassandra and Clare were fantastic! Everything played out seamlessly on the day. Both were punctual, and timing for hair and make up took as long as advised. I am glad I had the hair and makeup trial prior to the wedding and would recommend it if future brides were trying to decide.
Your girls were very professional, put me at ease throughout, and I was very happy with my hair. I have very fine thin hair and it’s a challenge on a regular to make it look nice, but your stylist used all her tricks ( and Bobby pins ) to create a hair style that both suited me and my dress!
My skin was flawless and the make up looked fresh all through the evening with no touch ups.
I look forward to not only recommending you but also using your services again, for both hair and make up.

I just wanted to first say how grateful I am for the beautiful hair and makeup that was done for my wedding!! I felt so beautiful and my hair and makeup lasted all night, thanks to the amazing staff at Farfalla!! Please let Cassandra know that I loved what she did to my hair and was receiving compliments on it all night:)
- Dana & Derek
The wedding was fabulous…I couldn’t have asked for anything better! Whistler is such a perfect place to get married!
Not knowing what the weather was going to do, my hair stayed in place pretty well which was one of my concerns. My hair comb came out a few times while dancing, but besides that I had no problems.
I know that my mother was very pleased with her hair also! You guys did a fabulous job to make both of us look and feel beautiful that day! Thank you so much for all that you did to make my wedding perfect!
- Sara Meissner (formerly Knab)
My girls and I were completely thrilled with the services and experience at Farfalla. The stylists were professional and knew exactly what to do (which is great, because none of us had a clue) and my makeup by Clare was AMAZING. I felt gorgeous! Even better – I felt like a bride! I wish I could look that way all the time. My now husband was duly impressed with how I looked on our wedding day and commented on how natural yet amazing the makeup looked on, instead of looking like I had far too much makeup on. And the updos on all us girls – perfect, perfect, perfect! I appreciated that we were able to vaguely communicate what it was we wanted, and the stylists were able to take that and make it reality.
Also, thank you for squeezing my mom in for a last minute makeup session. She had been fighting me on getting makeup done (she’s very particular) when I’d offered to book it for her. After she saw mine, she immediately called downstairs for an appointment and you lovely ladies made it work. Thank you thank you!!

Sorry that it has taken me awhile to get back with you… after the wedding and getting back into “real” life has been nothing short of difficult. Cassandra and Emily were incredible.
I cannot thank you enough for employing such talented ladies. Me and my step-daughter met with Emily and Cassandra the evening before the wedding for a brief consultation. They asked us what styles we liked, suggestions we had and how we usually wore our make-up. Emily worked with me especially since I left my favorite lipstick in the States and was desperately looking for another one for the wedding day.
The day of the wedding, the girls arrived to Nita Lake, on-time and supplies at hand. They were professional, friendly and timely – not once did I feel rushed. These gals took their time and made me and my stepdaughter beautiful!!! I was sooo stunned when Emily handed me the mirror to take a look at my make-up – I could not even believe it was me! She made me look natural and truly brought out my inner beauty.
Cassandra also did an amazing job with my hair! She pinned it up, sprayed it well and the style stayed throughout the entire wedding. I did not need to touch-up my hair nor my make-up the entire time. From start to finish – I looked incredible due to these ladies 🙂
I would recommend their services to anyone – either coming in to Whistler for a wedding or local Canadians looking for a make-over. I cannot thank them enough for putting their heart and soul into their work, and making me feel so very special on my wedding day!

Hi there Joanna & Emanuela,
I have attached some photos of my wedding day, you are welcome to use them for your portfolio. My experience at Farfalla was great, the girls were so nice and I was really happy with my hair and make up. I adored my individual lashes, I even babied them so they lasted for a couple days! My make up was a bit heavy, but it worked well for the black and white photography. My hair looked perfect and I absolutely appreciated the offer to get my curls retouched later in the day. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to go back in. The bobby pins held it fine, but family members’ hugs constantly tugged at my veil and the pins eventually fell loose. Luckily my sister was able to help me pin it back at dinner. Being at the peak of Whistler, on a foggy, windy day also played havoc on my hair, by the time we got down to the Village, my curls were gone. If I could make a recommendation to another bride, I would say: Go with an Updo for a mountain top wedding!
Farfalla was specifically recommended by my photographers, Tallevi Studios. I would also recommend your salon. Thank you so much for taking care of me on my wedding day!
- Kelley & David
Thank you so much to your team for our beautiful hair and makeup for my wedding last Friday, we were really happy with the results and your team’s expertise:) I will be commenting positively on Yelp!
Farfalla is recommended by Sam & Geoff Wallace on the blog today:
The bride says she had fun at your place, is ok with sharing the two images and will email you a note upon return from honeymoon.
- Matt Murray
I have some photos for you to use in the salon or online. I was pleased with my updo for the most part. I had hoped for a bit more volume or thicker curls but, seeing as I hadn’t done a trial prior to my wedding I was still pleased with the result, and will refer to you in the future!
Thanks again for everything!
- Shannon Hickey
Here is the link to our wedding photos. You have my permission to use them for your portfolio in-salon or on-line. I was very pleased with how our hair and make-up turned out. Please thank Emily again for me, she did a fantastic job on my makeup. It was exactly what I had in mind.
Thanks again for making our wedding day so special for us!

Joanna & Emanuela,
I just wanted to say thank you to your staff for everything they did to help me, my maid of honor and my mother get ready for my wedding.
Our make-up and hair all turned out beautifully! Meyranie and Cassandra worked very hard and did a fantastic job on all of us. I was very pleased. Thank you to Meyranie for taking the time to fix my mother’s hair as well. It looked much better when she finished with it.
My French manicure (by Lindy) even lasted a couple of days. I always have trouble with nail polish staying on my fingers.
Sally was very sweet dealing with all of us as well. Thank you for all of her assistance.
The day was perfect and everything went very well!
Thank you all again!!
- Lorna & Steve

I am so pleased that I chose Farfalla to do my bridal party’s hair. We all loved the intimate feel that the salon gave us and everyone was so professional and always welcomed us with a friendly smile. Emanuela really helped me in agreeing for my make-up artist to use/rent their space in the salon which helped us greatly and certainly put any tension to rest. It worked out just perfectly on the morning of my big day. My Mum, Bridesmaid, Maid of Honor and Flower Girl just loved their hair do’s and looked so gorgeous all day and night. I adored what Kirstin did with my hair and I received lots of wonderful comments. I honestly felt like a princess throughout the day and of course into the evening. Thank you to everyone there for making us all look so beautiful. I will definitely recommend your salon to others.
Our photographer did an online wedding album for us that you can see via this link http://www.sandrasteier.com/chris+caroline/

Thanks again for helping make my perfect day!
I had such fun in the salon yesterday during my trials and enjoyed all the attention. I’m really happy with how my hair is going to look – Kristin is just awesome. Emily, the lovely girl who did my make-up was also super and wonderful to work with. We took photos and I’m really happy with how it all came together. It was so wonderful to go out last night with my hair and make-up all done….I’m still smiling.
Thanks so much for your email. The whole experience with your salon was lovely and very professional. Everyone was so friendly and chatty and upbeat. And I can certify that you provide bungee-resistant hairdos! There wasn’t a hair out of place after we jumped!

Hello and thanks to everyone who helped with my hair and makeup for my
wedding on Feb 3rd out in Whistler!!!
We’ve just got back to England after a lovely fortnight’s honeymoon in
Whistler and I thought I’d drop you a line to share my wedding photos with you and say thanks again for the beautiful hair you gave me (it withstood a lot of abuse with the snowball fights and snow angels!) and the makeup which lasted all day long. Perfect!!
