What a wedding! My heart was so full after photographing this beautiful intimate wedding. There is something about small weddings that makes my heart sing. I couldn’t help tearing up during the father-daughter dance because I was so touched by the love of this family after spending the day with them. Tracy and Eric invited their immediate families to share their beautiful wedding at Sanctuary Gardens and Quails’ Gate Winery in West Kelowna. Tracy was enchanted by Sanctuary Gardens‘ beauty and was so excited to have her ceremony there. It really is such a special place. With Okanagan lake vistas spread out in front of you and the most charming chapel-inspired gazebo nestled amongst the grassy hills of the property, it’s no wonder Sanctuary Gardens has quickly become one of the most popular ceremony locations in the Okanagan. I lucked out because I got to shoot at not only one but TWO of my favourite venues for this wedding because their reception was held a short drive down the road at the absolutely stunning Quails’ Gate Winery. Sanctuary Gardens‘ and Quails’ Gate Winery are my favourite combo for intimate weddings (Quail’s Gate only does small weddings). Tracy and Eric are so in love and it’s lovely to see the affection and goofy antics they share (and even more fun to photograph it!). : D They really know how to have fun. The day couldn’t have gone better and I’m so happy for these two!
Jenny McKinney working her makeup magic. I loved that Tracy’s happiness and glee was so evident on her face all day. : D Oh la laaa – Sanctuary Gardens When Tracy was 10 years old she decided she wanted to dance to “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong. She held on to that thought and it was such a sweet moment.Tracy and her Dad had us all tearing up from their touching father-daughter dance.
It was such an honour capturing your amazing day. Thank you again for everything! : )
