Brittanie & Maxwell – Kelowna Wedding

From the start of their day Brittanie and Maxwell and their wedding party had me laughing non-stop. Such a fun group – I could really feel the love. : ) They had their ceremony at a stunning private residence on the lake and continued to the Harvest Golf Club for their reception. It started raining towards the end of ceremony for a couple of hours but no one let it faze them. : ) The rain cleared up halfway through portraits and stayed clear the rest of the day. Thank goodness because they had surprise fireworks planned for their guests and the rain would have hindered that. The fireworks were such a cool addition to the day!!! I felt spoiled getting to photograph their wedding and watch a private fireworks show. : D Great day!

Thanks so much to the always superb Carley Bortolin for her second shooting/assisting skills!

An & Jakub – Evolve Cellars wedding, Summerland, BC

An and Jakub are such a fun pair. Jakub makes me laugh non-stop and An’s absolutely lights up a room with her smile and fun spirit. They’re both very sweet and it’s easy to see why they are perfect for each other. I loved seeing how their two families have embraced each other so much too. Everyone seemed so close the whole day was such a lively celebration. I was also so excited to be photographing another wedding at Evolve Cellars winery (formerly known as Bonitas Winery at the time of this wedding) in Summerland, BC. It’s a truly stunning property and I’m so happy it has opened its doors to weddings.

I feel lucky to have been part of such a fantastic day. : )
