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.

Anne and Derek chose the beautiful Cove Lakeside Resort for their destination wedding in Kelowna.  With many guests and family travelling to attend the event, it was a perfect location for everyone to gather and enjoy the best of what the Okanagan offers.  Anne opted to wear two different dresses for her wedding day – a fun and flirty short dress for her First Look and an elegant gown for her ceremony and reception.  A great option if you want to see your husband-to-be before the ceremony, but still want to surprise him walking down the aisle!

After the sweet First Look at Sanctuary Gardens in West Kelowna, we headed back to The Cove for Anne and Derek’s garden ceremony.  We love how their adorable daughter, Dayna, was included in all the festivities, from Getting Ready (sooo cute!) to the Sparkler Exit in the evening.   During the reception there was many endearing speeches, but we think the most inspiring was from Derek who spoke about embracing life and enjoying every moment.  What made it even more meaningful was that he recently recovered from a spinal injury that left him paralyzed – AMAZING!!!

At the end of the night, after the first dance and cake cutting, guests gathered outside for an exciting sparkler exit, which was a perfect finale to a gorgeous day.  Congratulations Anne & Derek – wishing you every joy in life together!

Jen & Simon – Vintage Romantic Outdoor Wedding at Apple D’Or Guesthouse in Naramata, BC

August 18th, 2013

We met the lovely Jen and Simon (who live in Calgary) over a year ago in Naramata to discuss their upcoming destination wedding which was just in the seedling stage of developing.  They LOVE the quiet vineyard town of Naramata and knew they had to get married there (Naramata is our all-time favourite spot in the Okanagan, so I’m sure we did a happy dance when we found this out).  Quickly, their wedding started to take roots and fast forward to July 20th, their big day arrived.  A month prior to their wedding, we met up with them in Naramata for their super sweet engagement session complete with their adorable son, Noah, which you can view here .

We LOVE an outdoor wedding  – is there anything more romantic than dining and dancing under the stars??  The beautiful Apple D’Or Guesthouse set the scene with its elegant rustic architecture and stunning manicured gardens and vineyards.  As guests were shuttled to the venue, they gathered on the lawn for Jen and Simon’s ceremony.  Jen emerged from the guesthouse and elegantly flowed down the stone staircase to meet her mom and dad before walking down the aisle.  We heard guests afterwards exclaim how impressed they were with Jen’s dramatic entrance and how they could have never done it in fear of falling.  After their sweet ceremony officiated by a close friend, everyone shared in a champagne toast and nibbled on gourmet appetizers created by the talented Joy Road Catering.

While guests were busy eating and drinking, we snuck off with the newlywed for a quick drive in their vintage convertible and headed down some beautiful country roads to take in the natural desert landscapes of Naramata.  Heading back to the reception, guests were treated to an amazing meal set along an elegant long table under a setting sun.  As the night darkened vintage light bulbs glowed and guests lingered at seating areas set up by the wonderful Vintage Origami and then danced the night away with the awesome indie band Wild Son.

And just when the night couldn’t get any more magical, guests started lighting Chinese lanterns which took flight into the night sky.  We are so unbelievably honoured that we were there to document and be part of this amazing event.  Congratulations Jen & Simon – you two blew our socks off with your stunning vintage outdoor wedding!!!

Jocelyn & Dustin – Rustic Elegance
Outdoor Autumn Wedding at Ponderosa Point Resort in Kaleden, BC

October 15th, 2012

We love photographing weddings in other areas of the Okanagan, so when Jocelyn and Dustin told us their wedding was to be at Ponderosa Point Resort on Skaha Lake in Kaleden, BC we got super excited.  Ponderosa Point is just that – a gorgeous point jutting out into Skaha Lake.  On this point, homey cabins […]

 

We love photographing weddings in other areas of the Okanagan, so when Jocelyn and Dustin told us their wedding was to be at Ponderosa Point Resort on Skaha Lake in Kaleden, BC we got super excited.  Ponderosa Point is just that – a gorgeous point jutting out into Skaha Lake.  On this point, homey cabins are cozied in among large towering trees transporting you back to the good ol’ days of endless Summer vacations.  Since many guests were from out of town, they were able to stay right on the property in one of the many cabins – how sweet is that?  Immediately upon arrival we felt a sense of quiet and calm, as the last details of décor were being finished and guests were enjoying the beautiful autumn day.  Jocelyn and Dustin got ready in different cabins on the property and we loved how family and friends would pop by to see how they were doing and offer warm compliments and wishes. 

The ceremony took place on a beautiful area with the Skaha lake as the background.  We loved Jocelyn and Dustin’s emotions during the ceremony which ranged from heartfelt tears to huge laughter.  So sweet and beautiful.  After the ceremony we headed down the street to the historic Kaleden hotel originally built in 1912.  All that’s left is a beautiful concrete shell worn with patina and the occasional vine clinging to its frame.  Can you tell we’re slightly in love with this building?  After some fun with the wedding party and a stroll along the lake, we headed back to the reception and as the evening emerged, guests ate, cheered, cried, and danced into the wee hours of the night.  The speeches were so heartfelt as well as downright hilarious.   At many of the weddings we photograph in the South Okanagan, we have the pleasure of enjoying Joy Road Catering’s phenomenal food which focuses on local and seasonal fare.  In fact, one of the chef’s came out and described what everyone was eating, along with informing us all that the meal had come from only 100 miles radius away.  Love that!

This was definitely a celebration and along the night there were some fun games including an impromptu puppet performance by Jocelyn and Dustin that was CRAZY funny!!!  We have never seen this done at a wedding – everyone was falling over laughing.  You’ll see photos below and know why.  The bartender, who is a long time friend to Dustin and Jocelyn, was a true rock star and worked hard throughout the night making cocktails and entertaining people with his mad skills.  What a night!  Jocelyn and Dustin, thank you for letting us be part of your wedding day – we had such such a great time and felt like we were among family and friends.  Congratulations and we hope you had an amazing time on your honeymoon in Greece!
