We first met Mallory and Dave back in June for their engagement session which took place on Mallory’s family homestead in Vernon.  Needless to say we were immediately blown away by the beauty of this historical property and how easy going, relaxed, and fun Mallory and Dave are.  You can view their engagement session here.  On their wedding day, we got to go back to this amazing property along with the wedding party and close family to take more photos!!!  YES!!!

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves, let’s start at the beginning of the wedding day when Mallory and Dave got ready at The Delta Grand Resort in downtown Kelowna.  The beautiful ceremony took place on the outdoor lakeside terrace at The Delta Grand.  After the ceremony, they drove off in Mallory’s Great Grandfather’s restored lumber truck.  We loved the addition of the trailing cans and just married sign – so cute.  We drove to the nearby mill to get a few lumber inspired photos and switched vehicles before heading off to the homestead in Vernon.  Getting to the homestead is only via country roads so we climbed the hills in trucks passing cows along the way.  It was really special photographing Mallory, Dave, and their family in such a meaningful location.

Afterwards, we headed back to The Delta Grand where everyone feasted and danced the night away.  It was a super fun evening and great ending to a phenomenal day.  Congratulations Mallory and Dave!!!  We were so honoured to have photographed your wedding.  Hope you two are having an amazing time on your European honeymoon!

We love how all of Mallory’s family came up for group photos at the homestead – we couldn’t imagine a more meaningful place to photograph them.

Family on Mallory’s side initiated Dave into his new life via a Scandinavian tradition by cutting the toes off the groom’s socks right after the first dance.  Mallory and Dave had no idea this was going to happen so Mallory looked a little freaked out when a group of guys dove on Dave, turned him upside down, ripped his shoes off, and proceeded to cut the tips off his socks.  This tradition is to symbolize the change in status from being single to married.  We also read that it alludes to the newly married man now having a wife to mend his socks.  Whatever it means, it was pretty funny and the first we’ve ever experienced at a wedding.

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 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.
