When I did these two’s engagement session I was touched by their deep bond with each other. You can plainly see that they love each other to their cores. They are such a free-spirited couple and I love how much their wedding reflected that. They had their ceremony on a mountaintop with their closest friends and family and then chose the eclectic and stunning God’s Mountain Estate in Penticton, BC for their reception with extended friends and family. It was such a beautiful combo and I loved capturing every minute of it. So happy for these two!
Onward to God’s Mountain Estate, Penticton, BC for the reception. I could wander around this place, looking at all the antiques and artwork all day.
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! : )
Taryn and Jason chose the killer combo of Cedar Creek Winery and Harvest Golf Club in Kelowna, BC for their wedding. Everything flowed so perfectly throughout the day (another thunderstorm warning avoided). Not only were Taryn and Jason so warm and fun to work with but their whole wedding party and guests were a blast as well. Cedar Creek Winery and Harvest Golf Club were picture perfect as always (especially with stunning floral arrangements by Classic Creations) and DJ Alex Bird who kept the awesome tunes coming all day! Thank you so much to Katie Nugent for second shooting for me! I’m so happy Taryn and Jason had such an amazing day. To top it all off we had an amaaaaazing sunset that I snuck them out of reception for. Eeeee. : D
These little cuties read a beautiful poem for their aunt and uncle. This groomsman definitely got the award for funniest of the day. : ) Such a fun idea! Taryn used the Plinko board as a great way to raise money for the Mazankowski Heartbeat Run run she’s taking part in. Did you notice that the groom has an identical twin!? Thank goodness Jason’s hair is a little longer to tell them apart. ; ) One of the sweetest speeches ever! Some of Taryn and Jason’s nieces and nephews came up and listed all the things they love about them.This little guy needed a little help from Grandma. “I love uncle Jason because he throws me up in the air.” = ) Mini break-dancer extraordinaire!
