In August, I made the trip over to the Okanagan for Chelsea and Cameron's wedding celebration at God's Mountain Estate. I absolutely love the landscape of the Okanagan. The dry, open landscape reminds me of my time living in Southern California, so I was so excited to photograph another wedding there.
The morning began with dark skies, blustery winds and a downpour but thankfully the skies cleared and we had the most beautiful day to celebrate their union. Most of the guests, including the bride and groom, were coming from Vancouver and the venue definitely served as a destination wedding spot. Beautiful vineyards wrapped up and down the mountain side and a Mediterranean styled estate housed most of the guests. Flowers by Celsia Floral were brought in from Vancouver and they were beyond gorgeous. Alessia, from Little Lessy, designed all the paper goods and put together such a special al fresco dinner for everyone to enjoy.
This wedding was a true highlight of the summer for so many reasons. I love when I get to travel (for what doesn't even feel like work) while capturing such special events. Thank you C+C for bringing me along! You two and your families were so wonderful and full of joy, it was contagious. xo
Alex and Yu Nong made a trip around the world to get married at the beautiful Starling Lane Vineyard on Vancouver Island. The couple lives in Singapore but have close ties to the Pacific Northwest and loved the charm and scenery of the area. Their wedding day started with a traditional tea ceremony followed by their vow exchange in the middle of the rose garden.
Thanks to the full team of vendors for making this such a beautiful day and congratulations to Alex and Yu Nong!
