Lauren & Brett – Summerland, BC Wedding

What a knock-out of a day! Every detail was so gorgeous and Lauren and Brett and their friends and family were such an awesome, fun group to capture. Lauren and Brett chose to have their wedding at Brett’s parents property in Summerland, BC. It is a stunning spot and Created Lovely really did it justice with her beautiful, complementing decor. There were so many unique touches like the amazing custom-made stage the family had built for the ceremony. Amazing!
I loved the colours and styling of the bride and bridesmaids so much. I was definitely a little blown away when I walked into the girls getting ready to see 8 equally stunning ladies in front of me. It was a big, fun wedding party that listened to my direction to boot, so I loved them all right off the bat. : D Thanks very much to Simone Wittenberg for second shooting/assisting me for this wedding!
There was so much love surrounding Brett and Lauren for their big day. Everyone put so much thought and heart into their speeches and I’m glad Limelight Studios was there to capture them as they were all worthy of being enjoyed again. I was so in love with the clear tents used for the reception. The light was perfect for photos and the beautiful evolving sky, showing through the roof of the tent, created such a fantastic effect for photos as the night progressed. Le sigh. I was a click-happy girl. So happy for these two that they had such a perfect wedding day! I don’t think it could have gone any better.

Check out Limelight Studio’s video post of the big day. They did such a fantastic job. Grab the Kleenex!

Dirty Laundry is one of my favourite vineyards to visit – amazing grape arbor patio and such cool, fun branding (look at the clothes-peg gate posts!).Dirty_laundry_vineyards_wedding_0032 Dirty_laundry_vineyards_wedding_0033 Dirty_laundry_vineyards_wedding_0034 Dirty_laundry_vineyards_wedding_0035 Dirty_laundry_vineyards_wedding_0036 Dirty_laundry_vineyards_wedding_0037Summerland_bc_wedding_0038Summerland_bc_wedding_0039 Summerland_bc_wedding_0040 Summerland_bc_wedding_0041 Summerland_bc_wedding_0042 Summerland_bc_wedding_0043 Summerland_bc_wedding_0044 Summerland_bc_wedding_0045 Summerland_bc_wedding_0046 Summerland_bc_wedding_0047 Summerland_bc_wedding_0048Lauren and Brett rented a gorgeous vintage car to serve as the place to put presents.
