Almost all of Megan & Mike's wedding guests traveled from out of town to attend their Kelowna destination wedding at Summerhill Pyramid Winery. We were a bit nervous of the dark clouds but thankfully they stayed in the distance until their reception was starting and they provided some stunning landscapes for us to capture.
Here is their story:
Mike and I met while attending school in Thunder Bay Ontario in 2001. I spotted Mike from across the room and it was love at first sight. It took a few more weeks of me asking our mutual friend to introduce us before we finally met for the first time and fell in love.
We went our separate ways for a few years while Mike started working in Vancouver and I moved to Ottawa for school before we were reunited and picked up right were we left off. We have been inseparable ever since.
Kara & Chris traveled in from Calgary for a Kelowna destination wedding at Summerhill Pyramid Winery. Since they were from out of town we didn't get to shoot their engagement session until only a few days before their wedding, but it was still a great way to get to know our clients and let them become comfortable in front of our cameras before the big day.
We started out while they were getting ready at Sunset Waterfront Resort and then proceeded to Summerhill for their late afternoon ceremony. We only had a few hours until the reception started so we just stayed at the winery and utilized all the great and varied scenic locations that Summerhill has to offer.
Here are some images of Melissa & Dayton's storybook wedding album. For this album the couple went with the 11"x13", 50 pages, with a black leather cover and a custom name stamp. The quality of these albums is just top notch and we hope they will cherish it for generations!
We met up with Carrie & Dustin at upper Mission Creek in Kelowna for their engagement session last week. The clouds played nice and let some sun through and we got some wonderful light down by the creek. We headed back through the fields and then headed to a nearby orchard so the couple could enjoy a glass of wine in amongst the trees. We are so looking forward to photographing their wedding this fall!
We photographed Melissa & Dayton's Trash the Dress session right after all the formal portraits were finished on their wedding day. We found a great location hidden in the middle of Waterfront Park that really suited the couple (thought the original idea of a water fight would have been awesome as well!). As we were walking back to the limo the bride and groom spontaneously dared each other to take a dip into the dolphin's fountain. Good thing they had a change of clothes for their dinner that night!
