These two best friends had such a love filled wedding day at Kopje Park ending off at The Laurel Packing House in Kelowna, with a whole lot of awesome photo locations in between!
We started off the wedding day at the Delta Grand while Bri Stien and Jenna Jones rocked out lovely hair/makeup for the girls. A few rooms down were where Greg and his groomsmen were getting ready. Once Tara had put on her wedding dress, which was aboslutely stunning to say the least, we walked out to the pond behind the Delta for their first look. There is no better way to start off the day than with the reaction of the groom seeing his bride for the first time!
Before we made our way to the ceremony, we had a bit of time, so we stopped and explored through a forest in Lake Country to photograph the full wedding party as well as these two. As the wind whistled through the trees, we found awesome nooks all over. Believe it or not, it was so windy that at the end of our shoot, a huge tree fell literally 30 feet from us. That was our cue to make our way to the ceremony.
We arrived at Kopje Park for what was soon to be the windiest ceremony to ever take place, yet these two weren’t going to let a bit of wind change any plans. This was a beautiful scene as these two said I do backed by the lush green leaves as the Okanagan Lake peaked through. After celebrating their marriage with family and friends, we stopped in a stellar grassy field where Tara and Greg celebrated being married together.
We walked into what was such an lovely decorated venue, Laurel Packing House had never felt as darling as it did this night. Guests filled the room and along with them brought laughter and speaches topped off with a delicious dinner. Tara and Greg then had a first dance to die for underneath the chandeliers. After their intimate dance, DJ John Byrne had the dance floor packed and alive for the rest of the night as everyone celebrated one awesome love!
From having drinks on a pebble beach of the Okanagan to adventuring through the woods on your special day, It has been an honour the whole way. Thank you so much Tara and Greg for having me photograph such special times in your life!
