Aliana and Matt came from Vancouver to the sunny Okanagan for their fairytale wedding held at Elysium Gardens and Hotel Eldorado in Kelowna, BC. Aliana is a true romantic and has such an attention to detail for styling, which we discovered when planning and photographing their AMAZING bed on the beach engagement session which you can view here.
On the wedding day, the pretty pink whimsical details were complimented by Aliana’s gorgeous lace gown and the most romantic bouquet created by Stage RIght etc. The day started out with their private first look at the Casorso farm in front of the historic log house with creative portraits to follow, which was so sweet and adorable to witness. With a garden ceremony at Elysium Gardens, followed by a surprise ice cream truck snack for guests before boarding a cute yellow school bus (in homage to her career as a school teacher) to Hotel Eldorado for their lakeside reception, this wedding day was filled with fun and lots of LOVE! We are so thankful and honoured to be chosen to photograph your dream day and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
Aliana & Matt planned a surprise treat for their guests after the ceremony – an ice cream truck!!! How cool is that?!? It was an instant hit with everyone (and was fun for photos too), so if you’re considering doing something similar for your own wedding, we hands-down agree. Your guests will gush about how awesome your wedding day was!
Aliana & Matt have now come to have many kitty fur-children – even though they couldn’t attend the wedding, they were well represented by the amazing cut-outs! I think the following photos best represents their relationships with their fur babies – haha, Matt!
And here’s a little sneak peek of their gorgeous 8×12” horizontal Italian Seamless Designer Album with Crystal Glance cover and metallic photographic pages with satin fine art lamination. Aliana & Matt’s first comment after seeing the album in person was “The book is beyond anything we’d been dreaming of- WOW!! We honestly couldn’t have made a better choice for our photographers. Every step of the way you have impressed us and delighted us. Thank you! ”. I can seriously say, I have the BEST clients – thanks again you two for allowing me to document and be part of your day!!!
