We are always excited when weddings take us out of our home base of Kelowna. So when Julia & Dale informed us that their ceremony would be held on the shores of Vaseux Lake at their parents property and reception held at Hester Creek Estate Winery in Oliver, we were uber excited because both these locations are incredibly beautiful and really capture the magnificence of the South Okanagan. Julia got ready at The Villas at Hester Creek Winery in the morning and looked absolutely gorgeous in her Pronovias gown designed by Manuel Mota and her sparkling Jimmy Choo shoes. Julia is such a thoughtful and sweet person, she even bought all her bridesmaids Gucci shoes. Meanwhile, the guys were getting ready at the lakeside property and the stage was being set for a beautiful beach ceremony. After the ceremony, a champagne toast and appetizers followed beachside, allowing guests to mingle in a relaxed environment. We even managed to get Julia & Dale’s beloved cats in for a photo-op (although the large body of water aka the lake was slightly freaking them out). While we continued on to Hester Creek for photos with the wedding party, Julia & Dale made sure their guests would be entertained before the reception by sending them on a wine tour. We love how all of Julia & Dale’s images have a Tuscan feel to them – from the vineyards to the fountain. The reception that followed was perfect, with elegant decor, amazing gourmet food, and phenomenal wine. We knew that Julia & Dale definitely love their sweets when we saw their awesome candy table (which was hugely popular with guests) and their gourmet wedding cake which was brought up from Vancouver (that’s serious dedication!). The whole day flowed flawlessly and was truly unforgettable. Thank you Julia & Dale for letting us photograph your magnificent event. Congratulations!
