Wow! This wedding was super glamorous and had us in awe the entire time. When Sarah & Jamie told us they were getting married at Sparkling Hill Resort, Katherine and I were over the top excited. The newly built Sparkling Hill Resort is located in Vernon and boasts 3.5 million Swarovski crystals throughout the hotel (hence the sparkling). Not to mention panoramic lake views, gourmet cuisine, and a gigantic spa with 9 different steam and sauna rooms. Warning – you may never want to leave this place! The wedding day started out with Jamie and his groomsmen playing golf at Predator Ridge Golf Club, which is located just below Sparkling Hill. The weather was absolutely perfect all day – beautiful blue skies and Okanagan heat. After photographing Sarah & Jaime’s engagement shoot, we definitely knew that these two know how to dress. Yet, we were totally blown away when Sarah emerged with her gorgeous Lazaro gown and Jamie sported his custom-tailored, uber-mod suit. After both parties got ready, Sarah & Jamie met in the Serenity room for their first look. We loved how Sarah was slightly veiled by long strands of ivory material as Jamie came to meet her. It looked completely ethereal and dreamy. The outdoor ceremony that followed was stunning, taking place on a deck that jutted out into the Okanagan landscape, with a view that was completely unobstructed and seemed to go on forever. Afterwards, a fun cocktail hour ensued, complete with a martini ice sculpture (definitely a popular attraction) and followed by an amazing reception that was beautifully decorated. There were so many amazing photos that we captured through their day that what you see below is only a sneak peak. We definitely have to thank Sarah & Jamie for allowing us to pull them away quickly a few times in order to capture the endless dramatic architecture and sparkling crystals that always caught our eye as the light changed throughout the evening. This was such a gorgeous wedding and we were so honoured to be a part of it. Congratulations Sarah & Jamie, we had such a great time getting to know you both over the last year!

As soon as we arrived, we knew this was going to be a gorgeous wedding. Jenn & Jeff who had come all the way from Regina, Saskatchewan planned a beautiful ceremony and reception at Linden Gardens in Kaleden. The outstanding vintage décor provided by Yuriko from Vintage Origami set the stage for a whimsical, fun, and charming day. Jennifer has the most stunning red hair and blue eyes and looked absolutely beautiful in her vintage inspired wedding dress, while Jeff had an equally awesome suit, complete with contrasting blue pinstripes and an antique pocket watch. Jenn’s son, Landen, was the most comical and adorable child we have ever met and had us (and everyone else) laughing throughout the day. I seriously would not be surprised if he becomes a famous comedian or actor when he grows-up! After the ceremony, we ventured down to the Kaleden Hotel, which was built in 1912, but became abandoned shortly after. We made use of its patina and dramatic architecture, while also capturing some dreamy beach images down at a nearby dock. Back at the reception, the night unfolded with touching speeches, amazing gourmet food from Joy Road Catering, fun music & dancing, and to top it all off – an awesome vintage inspired candy table. Before we left, we whisked the bride and groom away to capture some enchanting night time images in the garden, with even the clouds parting temporarily to reveal a luminous full moon. Thank you, Jennifer, Jeff, and all your family for including us in this beautiful day!
