Emily & Riley – Garden Party Wedding at Private Residence & The Harvest Golf Club, Kelowna, BC

July 31st, 2012

We met Emily and Riley back in February up at Silver Star Mountain Resort in Vernon for their engagement session which you can view here.  They are fun, easy-going, adventurous, and totally in love.  They met at medical school where Riley was Emily’s support group leader and also leader of the outdoor club which Emily […]

 

We met Emily and Riley back in February up at Silver Star Mountain Resort in Vernon for their engagement session which you can view here.  They are fun, easy-going, adventurous, and totally in love.  They met at medical school where Riley was Emily’s support group leader and also leader of the outdoor club which Emily attended often; however it wasn’t official until Riley went to a party they were both at dressed up as a Spartan warrior from the movie 300.  Love it!

They had their wedding at Emily’s parents private residence where she grew up.  It’s a stunning property with beautiful gardens, huge pool, and horses.  The most amazing cello music played before and during the ceremony by Emily’s talented musician brother from New York along with a beautiful duet with his girlfriend Annie during the recession.  After the garden ceremony they headed to the back for a poolside cocktail party and champagne toast.  We can say with all certainty that we have never photographed a wedding with so many doctors in attendance!  Not only were tons of their guests doctors, but also their entire wedding party.  Needless to say, we felt very safe! 

Backing the private residence is a neighbour’s lavender field that was in full bloom.  YES!!!  We have been wanting to shoot in lavender fields for a long time, so as you can imagine how super excited we were.  We absolutely love the images of Emily and Riley amidst the dreaminess of the lavender with the tall dark forest behind them.  And then it get’s even better…we went to see the horses!  We didn’t hang out with the horses for too long because in all honesty I think they were totally freaked out about Emily’s wedding gown, but we again love the images created in that short amount of time. 

Emily and Riley had their reception at The Harvest Golf Club in Kelowna and we hung out with them and their wedding party in the orchard until we all headed back for their entrance.  Guests had to get up and share a story about Emily or Riley in order to get them to kiss, so we learned more about how awesome these two are.  Emily & Riley – thank you so much for letting us capture the story of your wedding day.  You both are truly amazing, compassionate, and beautiful people – we wish you a lifetime of happiness and love!

Jessica & Jordon–Elegant & Vintage Vineyard Wedding at Summerhill Winery in Kelowna, BC

We officially met Jessica and Jordon back in April when we photographed their engagement session amidst a gorgeous cedar forest which you can view here.  We loved hanging out with them – they are such a sweet and genuinely nice couple.  They are also high school sweethearts…aww.   Living in Edmonton, they decided to have their destination wedding here in Kelowna, BC at Summerhill Winery.  On their wedding day, it turned out to be an amazingly beautiful and hot day here in Kelowna.  Before their ceremony they had a First Look on a private heritage property among a row of apple trees and afterwards we headed inside the heritage house to escape the heat and absolutely love the images that were created.  After their beautiful vineyard ceremony, they celebrated Napoleon-style by sabering off the tops of Summerhill’s sparkling Cipes Brut with a sword.  Their celebration continued well into the night with delicious food & wine (of course), crazy  games, and loads of dancing.

Check out Jessica’s phenomenal Pnina Tornai dress and veil!!!  We loved the intricate floral jewelled lace and vintage feel of it.  Let’s be honest, their whole wedding was stunning, with beautiful flowers and decor.  And Jessica’s wedding ring made our jaw drop – AMAZING!  Thanks you two for letting us be a part of your super fun and stylish day – we wish you a beautiful life together!

Back in April we had the opportunity to photograph Sarah and Bryce’s engagement session in downtown Kelowna, which you can view here.  They are a super fun and playful couple and their wedding was just as lively.  During the ceremony at Summerhill Winery it poured, but Sarah, continued to beam and stated that she was going to have a long and happy marriage.  Amazingly enough, the sun came out after the ceremony and the rain stayed at bay until the reception which was held at The Delta Grand.  Yay!  

This group of guests know how to party!   When the lights were dimmed there was some major dance action going on.  The Delta Grand has a huge dance floor area and we saw everything from dance renditions from the movie Grease to full on professional moves with girls being flipped over every which way.  We’re positive the party continued well into the night after we left!  Sarah & Bryce, we wish you an amazing life together – thank you so much for including us on your big day!

We had such a great time getting to know Polly & Simon during their engagement session back in September which was featured on Style Me Pretty.  When their wedding came about in May, we were so excited because it was our first time photographing a Chinese Tea Ceremony.  We absolutely loved every part of the tea ceremony and vineyard wedding that followed at Summerhill Winery in Kelowna, BC – so incredibly beautiful!

We are VERY excited that Polly & Simon’s wedding was hand selected to be published in the Fall/Winter issue of Real Weddings magazine (due out in October).  We couldn’t resist posting a few images to wet your appetite, but you’ll have to wait until the magazine is out to see the full story including their amazing décor, details, and the phenomenal vendors who made it possible.  Enjoy this sneak peak and check your newsstands in October for the unveiling!

Sana & Logan – Wild and Free
Ultra Romantic Horse engagement session in Vernon, BC

We have been excited about this engagement shoot for a while.  When Sana told us she wanted to ride a horse bareback in the water as part of the engagement shoot we nearly jumped for joy.  Yes!!!  They made the excellent location choice of Cosens Bay in Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park.  It was our first time there and wow, what an amazing location.  It’s huge, wild, and rugged.  The fields were bursting with yellow wild flowers and as were setting up the picnic scene, a young bear made it’s appearance and kind of circled from a distance.  I think he was smelling the baguette, so we got the shots we needed and then packed it up!   Logan mocked up a picnic similar to the one they had in Paris, France under the Eiffel Tower when he proposed that day.  Aww…How romantic is that?!

After the picnic, the horses came thanks to Mary-Ellen and her assistant who rode them down to our location for the photoshoot.  A huge thank-you!  The horse and lake photos were so fun – the horses were such good sports even though the hoards of mosquitoes drove them a bit nuts at times.  We don’t blame them, hoards of mosquitoes can drive anyone temporarily insane.  As the sun set behind the mountains, Sana and Logan braved the extremely cold waters and took the plunge.  Thanks you guys for being up for anything and for being so crazy in love.  We can’t wait to photograph your wedding this August in South Langley (fun fact of the day: Langley is horse capital of British Columbia)!

When we asked Logan to kiss Sana’s cheek, Indy decided to get in on the love too!  Is that not the most adorable thing ever?!  We love Sana’s burst of laughter right after the double kiss and Indy’s quizzical look.

Mallory & Dave – Take Me Home, Country Roads
Sweet and Beautiful Homestead Engagement Session in Vernon, BC

July 3rd, 2012

Anyone that knows us can attest to our unabashed love of heritage buildings, vintage objects, and other treasures from years gone by.  So when, Mallory suggested we use her family’s homestead property complete with the original house built by her great-great Grandfather you can imagine how excited we were.  It is so rare to find […]

 

Anyone that knows us can attest to our unabashed love of heritage buildings, vintage objects, and other treasures from years gone by.  So when, Mallory suggested we use her family’s homestead property complete with the original house built by her great-great Grandfather you can imagine how excited we were.  It is so rare to find homesteads still owned by the original family and we loved the idea of using something so meaningful and significant for their engagement photoshoot.

Since this property doesn’t have an exact address, we met them on the side of a road in an approximate location and started the walk up the pasture to get to the homestead.  We were immediately blown away by the natural rustic beauty of it all.  High up on a hill sits the original house nestled in front of a pristine expansive forest and overlooking pastoral rolling hills and lakes below.  We felt like we were in the Swiss countryside with an occasional cow and green fields that seem to go on forever.

Although the buildings have seen better years, we were immediately charmed by their rustic patina.  If those buildings could talk, we’d love to sit there all day listening to stories of old.  Mallory and Dave made it out from their homebase in Quesnel, BC for the photoshoot and we had such a great time with them exploring the property and getting to know them as a couple.  We’re super excited to photograph their wedding this September in Kelowna and we even get to come back to the homestead on their wedding day for some more photos!!!

One of our favourite moments of the shoot:  When a weathered antique spoon was found outside.  We joked around that her great-great Grandfather could have ate from it.
