kari + mike married

They were married on a beautiful, hot spring day overlooking Osoyoos from Spirit Ridge Resort and Winery. The sun was shining, encouraging the vines and orchards to burst with green at the start of the growing season. Kari, such a natural beauty, looked absolutely amazing as a bride, and our groom was not too shabby either.

I had met Kari and Mike last year where we talked about their wedding plans. We then met up to do an engagement shoot in the heat of last summer, which is where I first was able to really see them together and got me very excited for their wedding day…

Kari and Mike had opted for a first look, which was a very sweet moment. He waited for her in the vineyard, and they were able to share a few moments together, just the two of them (with me in the ‘wings’, of course).

We ventured into the orchards and the desert hills of Osoyoos for our photos, and then enjoyed the rooftop patio for the ceremony. There were a few clouds threatening in the distance, but they held off any weather and allowed us to enjoy a stunning day outside. With a few celebratory drinks and appies in the outdoors, we worked our way inside for the reception, where there was good food, great company, and some very special moments.

Thank you two for having me along for your wedding. I hope you enjoy these images and they will act as a beautiful reminder of such a special day.

Nikki + Greg married

Being a part of this very intimate, very special marriage was an absolute priviledge. I met Nikki and Greg last year for their engagement session, and it was here that I got to see how comfortable and how in love they are together. On the wedding day, it was no different. As Nikki prepared for the day, she had a very calm disposition, which comes when you know you are marrying the right man. Her flowing dress was amazing, and Melissa Craven did wonders to enhance this already stunning woman with her make-up artistry and hair design. She was ready to meet her groom.

Greg stood at the alter, and you could see it on his face the anticipation to see Nikki. As their family looked on, N+G shared beautiful, personally written vows and a few tears, making them officially husband and wife. Their reception was held at The Harvest Golf Club, where they had a beautiful table set up for their guests. The night finished with a romantic first dance lit by the natural night flowing in the windows.

Thank you two for inviting me along to capture your day, and I send you lots of love as you begin this next part of your journey as husband and wife. xoStumpf-blog-1 Stumpf-blog-5 Stumpf-blog-7 Stumpf-blog-8 Stumpf-blog-9
