I love when couples do a “first look” and get portraits done of just the two of them before the ceremony. It adds such a romantic and intimate touch and gives them a chance to spend a little time together, just the two of them (and ok, me too, haha) on a day where the bride and groom often don’t get 2 seconds to themselves.
I met Michelle and Sean a few hours before their ceremony at their wedding venue, the Harvest Golf Club in Kelowna. Sean watched as Michelle walked towards him over a cute red bridge and they were absolutely beaming at each other. It was a very sweet moment and they took a few minutes to greet each other and appreciate the beginning of their big day.
The ceremony started shortly after their portraits and the day continued to unfold beautifully after that. The Harvest always looks gorgeous for receptions whether you dress it up or keep it simple which I love. Michelle and Sean used images from their engagement session as table numbers which I thought was really cool! There were so many great speeches that had people tearing up and then taking a 180 degree turn, having them laughing their heads off. There was so much love going to the happy couple and they reflected it back to all of their guests with their super appreciative thank you speech.
Michelle and Sean are two very sincere and positive people and I already know they’re going to live to be a happy old couple together. Enjoy the journey you two!
