My heart-tank felt so filled up after this shoot. Everyone that worked on it came from such a place of love and I felt surrounded by the loveliest of vibes the whole day. This shoot was all about showing the awesome potential of Luxe Camp Okanagan luxury tent rentals. Does this make the perfect elopement situation or what!? Or the backdrop of a ceremony… or a bachelorette party sleepover… a super fun kids tent at an event… a cool bar at an outdoor wedding…. so many options!
I was so excited that Yuriko, of Vintage Origami, came on board to bring this shoot to life. I think one of the things that makes Yuriko so successful in her business and fuels her creativity is that she truly does everything with love. She has the most gracious and giving heart and seeks to make everyone feel special and valued.
Everything clicked into place when Sanctuary Gardens warmly accepted our request of hosting this shoot on their beeeeauuutiful property in West Kelowna. Sanctuary Gardens is one of THEE most gorgeous ceremony venues in Kelowna. Guests sit under a beautiful white gazebo overlooking Okanagan Lake. Le Sigh…
Jenny McKinney pampered our model for this shoot with her hair and makeup talents. Jenny is another one of those treasures that puts so much love and thought into their work. As are Tracy of Luxe Camp Okanagan and Kirsten of Sanctuary Gardens. If you met them all, you would know what I meant about being surrounded by the most loving, positive vibes that day. : ) Everyone contributed something special.
I loved Vintage Origami’s sustainable approach to this wedding using fruit – that was later eaten and enjoyed! – for pops of colour, and potted plants from Crocus Floral Designs for greenery.
Thank you as well to Red Rooster Winery out of Naramata, B.C. for the gorgeous pop of colour from your delicious wine!
I wanted to finish off with a photo of the beautiful Yuriko, the creative powerhouse behind Vintage Origami. Her design for this shoot was incredible! What a talent! And you won’t meet a sweeter person around. We love you Yuriko! ♡
