Naleesa and Tanner are such a stylish, sweet couple who we had the pleasure of meeting last year and photographing their stunning Autumn engagement session with their adorable dogs, Memphis and Dacati, which you can view here . Their beautiful July wedding was a perfect day, not too hot and not too cold with brilliant blue skies. Tanner and the guys wore plaid bow ties with pink accents and matching pink socks – how awesome is that? It’s all in the details. Naleesa looked absolutely glamorous in her beautiful gown and super sparkly pink heels.
For those of you not familiar with Sparkling Hill Resort, it’s a stunning luxury hotel boasting over 3.5 million Swarovski crystals, panoramic views of Okanagan lake, an amazing spa with 7 different themed sauna and steam rooms, and phenomenal gourmet food. If you haven’t been, you’ll need to go pronto! The same day, the Canadian Bull Run also made it’s way to Sparkling Hill parking loads of exotic cars at the entrance, making the resort even more flashy.
After a beautiful ceremony on the outdoor terrace overlooking the lake, we headed to a nearby property with soft country fields and a striking red barn which is such a contrast to the ultra modern architecture of Sparkling Hill. We love the contrast of the two spaces. After guests wined and dined , we headed outdoors for a sparkler exit which capped off the most perfect day! Congratulations Naleesa & Tanner – we loved being part of your wedding day and hope you had a fantastic honeymoon in Jamaica!!!
Tanner’s mom surprised Naleesa with having everyone from their side of the family come up and each gift Naleesa a shell in symbolism of welcoming her to the family and wishing them a long and loving marriage. Aww…we were even tearing up during this.
