This vintage chic wedding in the mountain valley was truly what all girls dream of for their perfect wedding day, and this wedding photographer had the honour to capture it all!
The day started out with a scenic and first time drive to Cawston, British Columbia. I absolutely was not expecting the unreal valley views that I had driven into! My first stop was where Nate and the guys were getting ready. We started everything with a letter that Kali sent over for him to read along with his pocket square that she had made. From here, Nate opened a very,very old bottle of scotch to kick off the day and get suited up. Even Cash, their dog, was as dapper as can be.
I then headed to meet with Kali and her bridesmaids at Tree to Me Bed and Breakfast. I arrived to a beautiful staircase that screamed “hang the dress on me”. I spent the rest of the morning hanging out with the girls as Bri and Chandra worked the hair and make up for the day.
I arrived at the Grist Mill and Garden’s in Keremeous where, tucked away in the trees, was such a gorgeous opening for their ceremony location. This was the first time I had met these two, and with only seeing their first minutes together with huge heart filled smiles. I knew that this was absolutely a true love. Willow trees on one side, an old vintage building on the other side, and mountains in the distance as these two tided the knot and said I do!
We spent the next two hours photographing beautiful light and one stunning wedding party! From underneath the willow trees on a chic love seat, to a lush green apple orchard. Don’t think that we just stopped there.. With a few minutes left before we had to be back to the reception, We drove up the mountains to the most unreal valley view to capture a lot of awesome! It was honestly as though the mountains & valley had posed for them on their wedding day to give them such a dream backdrop.
We said Bye to the beautiful landscape and said Hey to such a lovely reception area. I could have shot the decor all night long! The evening went on with a delicious supper, a lot of laughs, and love filled speeches. The amount of people that came up to speak about Kali & Nate said it all about these two amazing people. After the speeches, the night had only started! They danced the evening away underneath the night sky to end off a truly perfect wedding day!
Thank you both, again and again, for choosing me to photograph your special day. I could talk about this one for pages and pages, but luckily for all of us, we get to leave it up to the photos to do the talking from here!
