Ashlea & Trevor – Vintage & Pretty Vineyard Wedding at Summerhill Winery, Kelowna, BC

August 12th, 2012

We met Ashlea and Trevor for the first time back in May when we photographed their engagement session which you can view here.  They are super-fun, sweet, and have great style to boot.  Since Ashlea and Trevor are from Calgary, this was a destination wedding; however, a large amount of their guests at the wedding […]

 

We met Ashlea and Trevor for the first time back in May when we photographed their engagement session which you can view here.  They are super-fun, sweet, and have great style to boot.  Since Ashlea and Trevor are from Calgary, this was a destination wedding; however, a large amount of their guests at the wedding were from even farther away – Newfoundland!  Trevor is from Newfoundland and they incorporated a few traditions into their wedding.   OK, we’re kinda in love with the East Coast of Canada and have been itching to check out “The Rock,” so we super excited when we found this out.

To start the wedding day off, Trevor, his groomsmen, father, and soon-to-be father-in law headed over to Plan B for straight razor shaves rockin’ out to Trevor’s favourite heavy metal music.  Ashlea and Trevor both got ready at the stunning lakeside Mission Shores.  We loved Ashlea’s vintage inspired dress with yards of tulle and birdcage hairpiece – so classic.   They had beautiful hot Okanagan weather for their wedding and as always, Summerhill Winery boasted spectacular lake views.  Paying homage to Trevor’s Newfoundland roots, during the reception guests had to kiss a fish in order for the couple to kiss which was super hilarious.  This was our first time seeing this – ever.  It kept everyone laughing the whole night.

Ashlea & Trevor – we had a great time at your wedding!  Congratulations!!!

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!

Janie & Hagen–Windswept romance
winery and beach engagement session in Oliver & Summerland, BC

May 26th, 2012

When we were brainstorming ideas for Janie and Hagen’s engagement session, we knew one thing – that we couldn’t come close to the amazingness (of course that’s a word) of their actual engagement proposal which goes a little like this:  On a typical Sunday evening, Janie and Hagen set out to have dinner with family […]

 

When we were brainstorming ideas for Janie and Hagen’s engagement session, we knew one thing – that we couldn’t come close to the amazingness (of course that’s a word) of their actual engagement proposal which goes a little like this:  On a typical Sunday evening, Janie and Hagen set out to have dinner with family in Richmond, BC (which also happens to be home to Vancouver’s International Airport).  Just as Janie thought that Hagen made a wrong turn, she suddenly realized that they were in the long-term airport parking lot!  Not only did Hagen surprise Janie with a romantic getaway to New York, he proposed on the lake in Central Park in a gondola!!!  Our jaws dropped as we read their proposal story and we seriously think it’s one of the most romantic proposals we’ve ever heard.

To showcase their romantic style and pay homage to their love of wine and the Okanagan Valley, we met up at Road 13 Winery in Oliver, BC where Janie and Hagen tasted wine in the ultra modern executive tasting room.  Road 13 Winery is family owned and we had the pleasure of one of the owners, Joseph, pouring the wine.  Thanks Joseph for accommodating us, making us laugh, and being an awesome host!  After the wine tasting we headed outdoors to wander around the newly green vineyards and capture the beautiful expansive valley.  Janie and Hagen brought a super big pink balloon that we thought might carry them away during this windy day.  Road 13 Winery also has a castle building for their wine tastings and we love the way it looks in the background.  So fairy tale romantic!

On our way back we all stopped at a gorgeous beach in Summerland, BC for a picnic.  Although the day was overcast and windy, we LOVE the way these images turned out.  We think the slightly muted tones of the sky totally added to the dreamy beachside look we were going for.  Thanks Janie and Hagen for surviving the slightly cold and windy day.  Did we mention we loved your outfits?  We couldn’t imagine anything better than Janie’s ultra romantic flowy skirt at the beach.

Even the sky was on our side – it didn’t start to pour until we were all done and in our cars headed back to Kelowna.  A perfect day.  Janie and Hagen – you both rocked this shoot and we can’t wait until your wedding in September at Sparkling Hill Resort!!!

Alejandra & Jeffrey– mountain vineyard wedding
at See Ya Later Ranch in Okanagan Falls, BC

We were super excited about photographing this wedding because

a) we had never met the couple beforehand (they came all the way from Ottawa) and

b) we had never shot a wedding at See Ya Later Ranch.

Well let me tell you – both the couple and location blew us away. As we started to ascend the mountain to get to See Ya Later Ranch we felt like we are on some great adventure to a secret location. When we reached our destination we were greeted by the cutest historical stone house which dates back to the early 1900’s and jaw-dropping views of the Okanagan Valley.

We instantly were enamoured with Alejandra & Jeffrey who are super sweet, funny, and happen to have impeccable style.  During our time with them we discovered they are high school sweethearts…awww.  We loved how Alejandra, who is a graphic designer, made all the stationary, décor, and flower arrangements herself. Jeffrey is within sight of the finishing line for his career as a medical ER doctor (hehe…slight pun, since he also competed in the Ironman triathlon a week after the wedding in Penticton).  As soon as we saw Alejandra’s Vera Wang gown, we nearly fell over from its sheer beauty. Jeffrey perfectly complemented her in his classic Hugo Boss tuxedo. After the most beautiful ceremony, we started the photoshoot with the couple and wedding party around the vineyards while guests were treated to a sparkling reception featuring See Ya Later Ranch’s own sparkling wine and h’orderves. Tamsin who is the event coordinator from See Ya Later Ranch was so accommodating and even let us use her beautiful vintage car, a white Alpine Tiger, for a romantic photo-op nestled within the vineyard overlooking the stunning sunset backdrop.

We thoroughly enjoyed the wedding party entrance into the reception, with Michael, the best man and brother of the groom, doing a Canadian rendition of the Kenny Powers ‘Real American’ entrance from the show Eastbound & Down, complete with sparklers and cape that got everyone laughing (see slideshow).  As we left the reception, while the party was still going, we looked up at the starry night sky and saw the most amazing display of the Milky Way, which Kevin captured and is displayed as the last image on this post.  Thank you so much, Alejandra & Jeffrey, for including us in your stunning vineyard wedding.

Julia & Dale – luxury vineyard wedding at Vaseux Lake and Hester Creek Winery in Oliver, BC

We are always excited when weddings take us out of our home base of Kelowna.  So when Julia & Dale informed us that their ceremony would be held on the shores of Vaseux Lake at their parents property and reception held at Hester Creek Estate Winery in Oliver, we were uber excited because both these locations are incredibly beautiful and really capture the magnificence of the South Okanagan.  Julia got ready at The Villas at Hester Creek Winery in the morning and looked absolutely gorgeous in her Pronovias gown designed by Manuel Mota and her sparkling Jimmy Choo shoes.  Julia is such a thoughtful and sweet person, she even bought all her bridesmaids Gucci shoes.  Meanwhile, the guys were getting ready at the lakeside property and the stage was being set for a beautiful beach ceremony. After the ceremony, a champagne toast and appetizers followed beachside, allowing guests to mingle in a relaxed environment.  We even managed to get Julia & Dale’s beloved cats in for a photo-op (although the large body of water aka the lake was slightly freaking them out).  While we continued on to Hester Creek for photos with the wedding party, Julia & Dale made sure their guests would be entertained before the reception by sending them on a wine tour.  We love how all of Julia & Dale’s images have a Tuscan feel to them – from the vineyards to the fountain.  The reception that followed was perfect, with elegant decor, amazing gourmet food, and phenomenal wine.  We knew that Julia & Dale definitely love their sweets when we saw their awesome candy table (which was hugely popular with guests) and their gourmet wedding cake which was brought up from Vancouver (that’s serious dedication!).  The whole day flowed flawlessly and was truly unforgettable.  Thank you Julia & Dale for letting us photograph your magnificent event.  Congratulations!
