Sheryl + Steve Married

The resort was alive with preparations for Sheryl and Steve’s wedding day. Guests were finishing up their morning coffees on the veranda, staff was preparing the venue, their wedding planner, Jenny, was setting out the beautiful florals. Together they were creating a gorgeous setting for what would be the most perfect day to celebrate S+S.

Sheryl finished off her final details with her sisters and nieces by her side. Steve waited for her on a quiet path, just down from the resort. Sheryl had really wanted to make the time to see Steve before the ceremony. She knew he was the only one who could bring her the calmness she was needing before the most special day of her life began.

When they found each other, she laid her hands in his, and took that quiet moment together…

Without too much time to spare, they headed off to their ceremony overlooking the incredible view at Predator Ridge. They said their ‘I do’s’, and followed it up with a champagne toast with all their family and friends.

Celebrations lasted well into the evening, and ended with a magical sparkler send-off for the newlyweds.

Thank you two so much for inviting me to be a part of your day. I loved every moment, and I think it’s easy to see within these photos how much love you share. I wish you all the joy in the world as you begin this new chapter as husband and wife. xo

Sheryl made sure to take a quiet moment to open her gift from her groom. The words Steve chose to write to Sheryl brought tears to her eyes and a warmth in her heart that overflowed… It was the perfect final moment as she left to meet him for their first look together.

Sara + Blair Married

Laughter rang through the house as Sara and her best friends finished getting ready for the day. Sara sat in Jenny’s chair, getting the final touches on her make-up. The girls all took a moment together to remind each other how much they all mean to each other. The love  and appreciation I felt between this beautiful group of women was such a special moment. There is no better way I can think of starting one of the best days of Sara’s life.

The dress hung in the window, and when she was ready, the girls helped her into her gorgeous gown, and sent her to see her soon-to-be-husband.

Blair was waiting for Sara outside, as they wanted to have a quiet moment together before the festivities and celebration began. As Blair turned around, his face filled with emotion and love.

And those feelings lasted throughout this perfect day. The ceremony took place on the edge of Okanagan Lake with the sun overhead. After they shared the most beautiful (and oh so funny) vows, they kissed, they signed, they cheered, kissed again, and were ready to break out the bubbly.

It was a backyard bbq like no other. Fantastic food, great drinks, very entertaining speeches, crazy games and tasty cupcakes! Doesn’t really get much better than that.

Thank you Sara + Blair for asking me to be your photographer. It was such  an honor, and I hope these photos bring back all the beautiful memories of your day.
