“I never thought this day would come. I never thought I could find someone like Trevor, but I did…”
As Sarah and her bridesmaids prepared for the day, there were many tears of joy, of excitement, of love. I can easily say, Sarah put more love into each and every nook and corner of this wedding than I thought possible. The amount of handmade details and hand-written notes of appreciation, the air swelled of friendship and love.
From the beautiful private residence on Okanagan Lake, Sarah and Trevor got married with their closest family and friends present to help celebrate, and celebrate we did! With a gorgeous tent set up for lunch and an outdoor bar, the beach party was well underway by noon.
Two Chefs and a Table did a fab job of the food with some beautiful decor additions by Lois Lane in Kelowna. As I already said, so many of the details were hand-made by the bride herself or built by the groom. The afternoon was perfect with the hot Okanagan sun pouring down on us, letting everyone relax on the beach and enjoy each other’s company.
I actually met Trevor many years ago. Trevor is one of Ryan’s (my hubby) best friends right from when they were little gunners getting into lots of trouble. So within the first few weeks of me meeting Ryan, I also met Trevor, his wild and crazy friend.
In those first few years of knowing Trevor, I saw him as a world traveller. He was always checking out a new corner of the world or starting a sweet new job. Always on the move and always experiencing something new.
When the day came that he met Sarah, he was running a boat-rental shop in Penticton and she was living in Kelowna. It wasn’t long till they had their own place in Summerland with a new beautiful puppy. I remember when I first met Sarah when she came to help celebrate Ry’s 30th birthday… she seemed like the sweetest person in the world. People like Sarah, you can see it in their eyes, the kind of soul they have… and hers was open, warm and beautiful.
Eventually, T+S ended up moving to Vancouver where Trevor started another new venture. He partnered up with a few other guys and began opening a chain of restaurants in Vancouver, The Warehouse. So Sarah, Trevor and Indo set up their home in the big city and haven’t looked back.
This past winter, the two of them were on a vacation in Mexico, and they were snuggling on a blanket on the beach when Trevor got down on one knee and asked her to be his. You can check out their engagement photos we did using that same blanket from when T proposed.
And on August 3, 2013, this is what they did. She said yes, and he vowed to love her for forever.
Thank you two for inviting me to be a part of your day. It truly was one of the most special wedding days I have ever seen. I hope you enjoy watching the story of your day through these photos…
