Fintry Estate Wedding Venue
Old World Elegance in the Okanagan

June 24th, 2015

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.

Lakeside Country Engagement Session in the Okanagan

Karlee and David journeyed back to Karlee’s hometown of Kelowna from Edmonton for their farm-romance inspired engagement session.  David actually proposed at The Caravan Farm Theatre in Armstrong last New Years Eve.  If you haven’t been to the this outdoor winter theatre event, which includes multiple sets spread across the farm that you travel to on horse drawn sleigh, you must experience this!  I couldn’t imagine a more perfect place for a proposal.  They love the outdoors, nature, and time on the lake, so chose to experience their engagement shoot at Fintry Provincial Park, which has the most amazing barns, heritage manor, and lakeside packing house.

Upon arrival at Fintry, we experienced a torrential downpour, but it soon let up to sun breaking through clouds and steam rising from the barn.  We found out that David loves to two-step, so they danced up a storm in the dreamy, golden field before we made it to the beach for the final rays of sunset light.  We look forward to photographing their lakeside wedding just down the road from Fintry at Lake Okanagan Resort on July 18th, 2015!

Free-Spirited Beach Engagement Session in Kelowna, BC
Tammy & Will

June 18th, 2014

We headed to a park in West Kelowna literally steps away from Tammy & Will’s house, where they are always heading with their three ADORABLE dogs: Ziggy (big German Shepard), Uva (black lab cross), & Chili (little brown cross).  Tammy and Will have such big hearts and have rescued Uva from Costa Rica and Chilly […]

 

We headed to a park in West Kelowna literally steps away from Tammy & Will’s house, where they are always heading with their three ADORABLE dogs: Ziggy (big German Shepard), Uva (black lab cross), & Chili (little brown cross).  Tammy and Will have such big hearts and have rescued Uva from Costa Rica and Chilly from Mexico – aww!  The three dogs love constantly playing with each other and have heaps of energy.

Tammy and Will probably have one of the most unique weddings planned – both avid musicians, they have a lineup of three bands playing at their reception including a band they are playing in!!!  So, it only seemed right if they brought along their guitars for part of the photoshoot.  We love these laid back photos showcasing what Tammy and Will love doing best – hanging out with their fur family, playing music, and having fun.

Tammy & Will, we can’t wait to photograph your wedding at the end of June!!!

Fondue on the Beach Engagement Session at Bertram Creek Park in Kelowna, BC – Jennifer & Adrian

Jennifer and Adrian came out from Edmonton for their Okanagan engagement session and we headed to Bertram Creek Park in Kelowna for its pristine natural beauty and lakeside location.  These two are seriously in love!  Adrian’s father is a goldsmith in Ecuador and made Jennifer’s engagement ring – how romantic is that!?!  We thought it was super cute that a few of their favourite things are having fondue night together, so we headed down to the pebble beach for some fondue at sunset.

These two both have such great smiles and exude heaps of joy, that you can’t help but smile along with them.  Thanks for being such naturals, Jennifer & Adrian!  We look forward to photographing your wedding this August at The Harvest Golf Club in Kelowna!

Some really cute creatures came out to say “Hello!” including marmots and chipmunks.  Jen was hilarious because she kept asking Adrian, “If I catch one, can I take it home?”  Haha!

Lakeside Camping Engagement Session in Okanagan, BC – Caitlin & Chris

December 31st, 2013

Caitlin and Chris love camping and the magnificent Okanagan lake, so we ventured out on a November day that was bridging the gap between Fall and Winter and captured some beauties of these two on a pebble beach framed by the shoreline and trees shedding their last autumn leafs.  We loved their cozy plaid flannel clothing they wore and even their adorable dachshund, Rosie, matched the outdoorsy Fall theme with her beautiful brown colours.  Being self-proclaimed Harry Potter nerds (umm…we love Harry Potter too!), they brought along their Harry Potter mugs for coffee and Baileys.  Rosie is hilarious and you’ve got to watch her because that doggie was all over the coffee and Baileys!  Staying till dark, Chris lit a fire and they roasted marshmallows on the open flames.  We love how our makeshift canvas tent looks in the photos especially at night when it was glowing from within.

What makes this engagement session a bit unique is that Caitlin and Chris are actually already married.  Last Summer they went to Las Vegas with friends and Chris popped the question and they immediately headed off to a chapel and got married!  Although Vegas was spontaneous and fun, they wanted family and friends to be at their wedding, so they are having their big wedding on July 4th, 2014 – exactly one year later after that fun Summer day in Vegas!  Caitlin & Chris, we are super excited to photograph your wedding this coming July at Summerhill Winery in Kelowna!!!

Kelowna Beach Engagement Session – Shannon & Dean

November 25th, 2013

Shannon and Dean brought their adorable dogs along for their beach engagement session in Kelowna.  We’re huge dog lovers and can’t get over how cute these two fur babies are (and how well they posed!).  Shannon and Dean definitely wanted to incorporate the beach into their photos, which makes sense since Dean proposed to Shannon […]

 

Shannon and Dean brought their adorable dogs along for their beach engagement session in Kelowna.  We’re huge dog lovers and can’t get over how cute these two fur babies are (and how well they posed!).  Shannon and Dean definitely wanted to incorporate the beach into their photos, which makes sense since Dean proposed to Shannon barefoot on the beach in warm Bermuda where he used to live.  Although the Okanagan is not as hot as the Caribbean, this late summer evening was beautiful and we lucked out with some amazing golden light at sunset.

Thank you Shannon & Dean for coming out from Calgary for your engagement session – We are looking forward to photographing your wedding  at Sparkling Hill Resort on August 17th!

Jennifer & Simon – Long Days of Summer: Beach Family Photoshoot and Winery Engagement Session in Naramata, BC

July 2nd, 2013

We first met Jen and Simon last summer in Naramata at a winery to discuss their wedding photography.  Immediately, we felt like old friends, due to Jen and Simon’s laid-back and friendly demeanor.  Being from Calgary, Alberta, they are planning their destination wedding in one of their all-time favourite places – Naramata.  We couldn’t agree more; this is hands-down our favourite place in the Okanagan!  It looks nothing short of Napa Valley with its quaint country roads and heaps of amazing wineries covering the beautiful landscape.

Jen and Simon have the cutest 1 year old baby boy, Noah, who we loved photographing for the first part of the photoshoot.  We don’t get to photograph kids that often, so it’s always fun, especially when cherries, sandcastles, and beaches are involved!  We are very proud to say that we gave Noah his first cherries…and he LOVED them as you will see in the photos below!  Thank you to Sun n’ Sup for renting Jen & Simon the awesome cruiser bikes for meandering around Naramata’s quaint town.  And a huge shout-out to Shades of Linen Clothing Store for spontaneously gifting us the beautiful flowers for Jen’s cruiser bike basket – how sweet!  After the beach, we headed to the spectacular La Frenz Winery for a vintage inspired picnic complete with props from the lovely Vintage Origami Wedding Décor Rentals.  We’re in love with the amazing, glowy, golden photos at sunset.  Sunset + Vineyard = Magic!  Thanks you two for being awesome, fun & just downright gorgeous.  We can’t wait until your wedding later this month at Apple D’Or in Naramata!!!

Breanna & Al – Views, Wine, & Laughter: Orchard and Beach Engagement Session in Okanagan Centre, Lake Country, BC

Living in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Breanna and Al are planning their destination wedding in Kelowna this August at some pretty amazing venues: Summerhill Winery and the historic Laurel Packinghouse .  For their engagement photoshoot, we took them to one of our favourite places in the Okanagan Valley, Okanagan Centre in Lake Country.  It truly is a teeny tiny gem home to wineries and orchards  and little else, which in our minds, preserves the charm and beauty of this area.  We are incredibly grateful to have been granted permission to photograph at the spectacular Dorenberg Orchards which grows ambrosia, gala, and sunrise apples as well as grapes for the nearby Grey Monk winery.  Thank you Marc for your hospitality!!!

When we pulled up to the orchard it was pouring rain, but within 5 minutes it was gone and didn’t come back until right after we finished the shoot.  Talk about luck!  After the orchards, we traveled down to the lake and made use of the serene waters.  Breanna and Al are such warm, light-hearted, and fun people – we had a great time with them and can’t wait to photograph their upcoming wedding in August!!!

And for a little behind the scenes fun – here I am captured by my talented wife, photographing the lovely Breanna & Al (yes, that is a huge grin behind the camera), as well as the happy couple with the owner, Marc, of the very beautiful Dorenberg Orchards in Okanagan Centre!
