Mallory & Dave – Elegant & Fun Lakeside Terrace Wedding at The Delta Grand Resort in Kelowna, BC

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.

Stephanie & Mathew – Ultra Sweet & Charming Vintage Wedding at Summerhill Winery in Kelowna, BC

September 4th, 2012

When Stephanie first contacted us about photographing their wedding over a year ago we had to let her know we were already booked for another wedding.  It was much to our surprise when she contacted us back saying that she was considering changing her date, but wanted to see if we were available first.  Luckily we were and the rest is history!  We met up last Fall for a fun, creative engagement photoshoot at a movie theatre and an autumn farm complete with a corn maze and hay ride.  Stephanie and Mathew are such easy going, friendly people.  We knew their wedding day would be fantastic.

We love ourselves a vintage themed wedding and Stephanie and Mathew created such a sweet and beautiful wedding day full of vintage cuteness and charm.  Stephanie is super creative and scoured high and low for the best details for her wedding.  We especially loved the vintage blue Ball glass mason jars (which is adorable since her last name is Ball), colourful depression glass teacups and saucers, retro cake topper, and fun candy table.  Everything was beautiful and meaningful, even the glass windows used for the table seating cards were from Stephanie’s parents cabin.

Stephanie is starting her first year as a teacher this September and we loved how she wanted to infuse a school theme into the photos.  She purchased a vintage school desk and we finally got to use the awesome heritage yellow and brick school buildings at the end of the street we live on for the First Look before the wedding.  We totally love the vintage school theme and with all the kiddos young and old alike starting a new year of school it’s the perfect time of year for these photos!

Summerhill Winery provided the perfect vineyard location for their ceremony and we had an awesome time hanging out with their super fun family and friends throughout the night.  Stephanie is so ridiculously adorable, gorgeous, and has a great sense of style – what more could photographers want?  She’s a self proclaimed “cry baby” and was tearing up throughout the day which was so sweet and heartwarming.  Stephanie and Mathew – you guys are quite possibly the sweetest people we’ve ever met!  Thank you so much for including us in your amazing day.  We are so honoured and had a great time hanging out with y’all.  Congratulations!!!

We loved how the wedding party played up their high school personas on the shoot with Stephanie acting as their teacher.

Nikita & Byron – Literary Dreams
A Fairytale Romance Engagement Session in Kelowna, BC

August 9th, 2012

Flashback to February when Nikita and Byron started discussing their ideal engagement session with us.  After we mentioned some concepts, they emailed back saying  they actually envisioned something more ethereal and dramatic inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Edgar Allen Poe, and Tim Burton.  When we read the email I think we actually squealed with […]

 

Flashback to February when Nikita and Byron started discussing their ideal engagement session with us.  After we mentioned some concepts, they emailed back saying  they actually envisioned something more ethereal and dramatic inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Edgar Allen Poe, and Tim Burton.  When we read the email I think we actually squealed with joy.  We love super creative shoots and this was our chance to go to town.  We also love how this shoot pays homage to Nikita’s degree majoring in Literature.

We knew one thing , this engagement session needed a story.  So we created one – with images….  Get yourself an icy cold beverage or a warm cup of something if it’s cold where you are in the world and escape from reality for a few minutes.  Enjoy!

A huge, huge thank-you to Yuriko and Eric from Vintage Origami for providing us with amazing props and being so patient in the mosquito filled forest!  Also, thank-you, thank-you, thank-you to Christina from Classic Creations for creating such a phenomenal ethereal hair wreath and bouquet.

Once upon a time…

Two lovebirds went walking one day on a warm and beautiful day in Summer.  They talked and laughed so much they lost track of where they were and found themselves in an unfamiliar place with a peculiar old building.  Curious they peeked in…

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits04_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits05_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

…and couldn’t resist exploring to see what they could find.

Just when they saw everything there was to see, suddenly they noticed a strange collection of beautiful items in the corner of a room.  Dusty and forgotten, from another time.Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits13_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits10_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits11_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits14_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits15_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits17_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits18_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits12_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits16_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

So many interesting things they found – books of old, keys belonging to mysterious doors and locks, a broken down chandelier, even a withered flower wreath.

Opening a little cabinet they found an old elixir of some sort.  They wondered what it was; surely it was just wine or port.  Doesn’t that just get better with age?  Remembering their parents advice, they knew it wasn’t safe to drink unknown substances.  But being the curious people they were, they couldn’t resist. 

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits21_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits22_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

A little scared and a little excited, they drank the whole glass down.

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits23_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits24_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

And then felt very, very sleepy…

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits25_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

…and awoke in a very strange and beautiful forest.

They suddenly realized that all the same objects they found in the old house were among them, but all bright and new.  Even the withered flower wreath had come back to life.  How strange! 

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits35_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits36_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

Everything was beautiful.  The temperature was perfect.  The air smelled like the most delicious roses and there was the most beautiful sound, but they couldn’t tell if it was someone playing a violin or songbirds signing in the morning sky.  True to their nature, they started exploring.

For a while, they got separated as they explored and as Byron sat down to rest he realized their was something in his pocket…and pulled out the most beautiful ring.  He thought about how much he loved Nikita and how he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her, but decided to wait until the perfect moment.

Suddenly Nikita came dancing through the forest.

Hearing the distant sound of waves, they followed their ears to find a picturesque pebble beach.

And then the moment was perfect.

Sleepy-eyed they woke up in the old house exactly where they dozed off.  It must have been a dream.

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits26_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits27_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

However, when they looked down they found the exact same ring from the dream and realized it wasn’t a dream after all.

We look forward to photographing their “happily ever after” at their upcoming  New Year’s Eve winter wedding.  Woot woot!

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!

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.
