Fintry Estate Wedding Venue
Old World Elegance in the Okanagan

Oh, where was this gorgeous manor when we were married back in 2007!  Fintry Estate was actually built way back in 1910 by James Cameron Dun-Waters, the Laird of Fintry, and his “dear old Missus” showing their passions for Old World stateliness and New World wilderness.  Fintry is a beautiful hidden gem in the Okanagan, situated on the western shores of Okanagan Lake halfway between Kelowna and Vernon.  It truly feels like a step back in time when you enter the area with its stately historical architecture surrounded by nature.

I was thrilled when Laura from Dandelion Willows Invitations + Stationary contacted me to be the photographer for their styled wedding to launch the estate as a premier wedding venue.  A long list of amazing vendors (below) were involved and made every aspect of this shoot a treat to photograph.  Please read on through the blog post to find out more about their amazing contributions to this shoot!

We had a dream team of stylists involved making the bride and groom look uber polished.  Chelsea from Bliss Bridal picked out the most perfect fairytale gown from Pronovias named ‘Mena’ with heaps of tulle gathered at the waist for a super amazing, full skirt and a gemstone and lace strapless bodice – so dreamy!

Bri Stein created a gorgeous, luminous look for the bride with her talented makeup skills, featuring rosy and gold tones to compliment the muted tones of the décor and florals.  For hair, Inspirado Hair Designs created two elegant looks with the ceremony hair boasting luscious curls molded into a side-swept style with a hair flower feature and the reception hair gathered in a soft and romantic updo with the flower as the centerpiece.

The trophy room at Fintry Estate was built in 1924 and features an array of taxidermy including a giraffe that was born at the Penticton Zoo (and died naturally – phew!).  The room definitely exudes a men’s smoking room and vintage feel which we thought was perfect for the groom getting ready.  Thanks to Grant King Men’s Wear from Penticton for providing the stylish suit and polka dot blue bowtie!  We love that this store started in the early 1900’s!

Dandelion Willows Invitations + Stationary created an exquisite collection featuring soft muted tones of gray and blush with gorgeous calligraphy to add an elegant and vintage feeling.  Isn’t that pretty lace tissue enclosed (‘for happy tears only’) in the ceremony program such a cute touch?  You will see much more of Laura’s gorgeous work as you scroll throughout this post!

Stage Right etc. brought together such a beautiful collection ceremony and reception décor.  The location of the ceremony was held at the end of a flagstone walkway, backed by large coniferous trees.  The swaths of bright white chiffon created a perfect contrast with the dark green background of the forest and the chandelier added an elegant and whimsical touch to this outdoor ceremony.

OK, how adorable is the flower girl and ring bearer?  Jillian Harris’ doggie, Nacho, came out to steal everyone’s hearts and be a little supermodel.  The dreamy florals by Classic Creations sent the cuteness barometer over the top!

Taking from the old European feel of the estate and the exterior colours of the grey stone building, the styling centered around bringing those soft, romantic muted tones together to create an elegant and classic look.  The florals from Classic Creations Floral Design was absolute perfection with large, luxurious creations filled with white hydrangea clouds, ruffled garden roses, eucalyptus, dusty millar, and trailing amaranthus in a palette of blush, soft pinks, peach, whites, and dusty blues.  Shorter floral arrangements were created with a more romantic and intimate asymmetrical design filled with ranunculus, roses, astilbe, lisianthus, and soft greenery.

Port Victoria Catering made the most beautiful spread of canapés for the outdoor veranda cocktail hour including BBQ Pork Mii Taco’s with avocado cream, queso fresco, and cilantro, Smoked Salmon Lox and Buckwheat Blini with herbed crème fraiche and chives, and Individual Shrimp Cocktail with tangy horseradish seafood sauce.

For the reception, we LOVED the long harvest table with rustic bench and vintage settee for seating from Stage Right Etc.  The table was adorned so beautifully with a muted floral runner and mixed metallic palate with shades of burnished gold throughout.

We are big fans of Anna’s creations from Sweet On You – Designer Cups and Cakes and the cake she made was once again truly stunning.  The gorgeous three tiered cake definitely emitted a French vibe, with a muted blue silk like finish and intricate ruffled white prettiness accents.  So feminine and pretty – we can see Marie Antoinette happily digging in!

Fintry Estate has extensive grounds to photograph within and is surrounded by Okanagan Lake.  There is even a waterfall located a short hike up the mountainside surrounding Fintry Estate!  We love this old packinghouse (seen below), plus the numerous other historical barns on site.

Chic hometown wedding in Salmon Arm & Enderby

We met Larissa in 2012 when she was a bridesmaid for her sister, Nikita’s wedding we photographed on that New Year’s Eve. So when Larissa contacted us last year to photograph her wedding in 2014, we were super excited and honoured to photograph another momentous event for this wonderful family.

In December 2013, we met up with Larissa and George for their winter engagement session at Silver Star Mountain Resort which you can view here. These two are such a sweet couple and we love that Larissa is a nurse and George is a doctor – how cute is that!?!

On the day of the wedding, Larissa and George were wed in Salmon Arm at the Deo Lutheran Church, followed by a reception in Larissa’s hometown of Enderby. We love the vast countryside and natural landscapes of Enderby and Salmon Arm which tend to be a lot more lush and green than the more desert-like areas of the Southern and Central Okanagan. A huge thanks to Hanna & Hanna Orchards in Salmon Arm for allowing us to use their beautiful property on the wedding day!

We were also thrilled to shoot in the Enderby countryside and made a special journey to the Ashton Creek Bridge to feature its industrial post and beam construction.  Keep your eye out below for an outrageous request from the groomsmen!

Larissa and George’s wedding day had beautiful hot weather and the evening transitioned into a perfect summer evening ending off with a fun sparkler exit at the end of the night. Thank you so much, Larissa & George, for having us document and be part of your amazing day! Congratulations!!!

The Groomsmen requested a photo of them being chased by a dinosaur – I replied that it was so last year, so we had the flower girl and ring bearer terrorize them instead!  Haha!  I can’t decide if I like colour or black & white better – your favourite?

We always love photographing at the stunning Sparkling Hill Resort, so when Luna and Torr contacted us to photograph their elegant wedding in March we were thrilled to be a part of it.  For those of you unfamiliar with the stunning Sparkling Hill Resort, it has dramatic modern architecture and boasts over 3.5 million Swarovski crystals throughout!  As soon as you arrive at its secluded mountain setting you feel instantly calm amidst its serene atmosphere overlooking Okanagan Lake.

Luna and Torr had a beautiful intimate wedding and their parents travelled all the way from China to be a part of it.  Their adorable doggie, Echo, was also part of the big day dressed up in a cute suit!  We’re huge dog lovers, so whenever they make appearances at weddings we get pretty excited to photograph all their cuteness.  March is still a bit chilly in the Okanagan but they happily braved the outdoors for some images showing off the amazing architecture and landscape.  After their ceremony held at the Fireside Terrace, they celebrated with cake before moving on to a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and reception.  Before the Chinese tea ceremony, Luna changed into a second stunning gown that was a beautiful deep pink colour.

Thank you, Luna & Torr, for having us be part of your gorgeous day. Congratulations!!!
