Kelowna Wedding Photographer- Erin & Rob's weekend wedding

If you missed last week's post (possibly two weeks ago!?!) of Erin & Rob's legal ceremony it's just below or you can link to it here.

A four day wedding weekend extravaganza on a RANCH with horses, and wilderness and all kinds of rustic goodness is he making for a dream wedding. When you add in all kinds of amazing vendors & creatives (full list below post), the styling genius of the Bride's many years of film work and one very cute flower girl (ok I'm a little biased because she belongs to me) the concept of a dream wedding unfolds into a most incredible affair which included a surprise bagpiper and highland dance off (erin was a competitive dancer when she was younger).

Myra Canyon Ranch is a must venue for anyone looking for an intimate, rustic, beautiful and natural setting. The owners are incredibly gracious and kind, and I wish very much I could just move right in. What I'm trying to say is this: epic weekend, epic wedding, epic couple. 'Nuff said.

Okanagan Mountaintop Wedding Photographer- Erin & Rob's legal ceremony

If you've been hanging around this little blogspace, you'll recognize these two sweet faces. They are some of my dearest friends, and a creative powerhouse from Vancouver. Their wedding didn't last one day, but a dreamy 4-days of loving, laughing, drinking and eating with their nearest and dearest. This is where the kick off happened. On top of Knox mountain, during a wind storm,surrounded by 12 of their family and closest friends. It was a simple exchange of I do's and I will's and promises spoken. Their legal ceremony will always be the day the fun began, not their anniversary but when a simple I do was whispered into the wind and marked with a kiss and a toast.

Kelowna Wedding Photographer- Wild Love Styled Shoot

I'm a fan of all things pretty. And all things sweet. And all things nice. As a wedding photographer in Kelowna I am lucky enough to shoot some gorgeous venues & weddings. But sometimes, sometimes I just want to sit down and drink an old-fashion and talk about my secret wish of getting a sleeve (of tattoos), and use a lot of swear words. You know? Get a little more rugged and tough and just kinda a little bit bad. But that doesn't always happen.  

EXCEPT, when we shot this styled wedding shoot. This past spring, along with the amazingly talented, Lauren of  Perspective Event Designs, and Christina from Classic Creations Floral designs, we came up with a concept based on a couple running off to the woods to get hitched, ditching everyone to taste a little freedom. We were inspired by a more rugged, wild and free kind of love; a west coast, banjo-playing, whiskey drinking, Bonnie and Clyde (without the dead bodies) kind of characters who also happened to be ridiculously in love. 

Not only did they style and help plan, but Lauren also sourced locally or handmade all the decor pieces used, and Christina designed and styled the bouquet and tablescape. 

This shoot would be nothing without the we had amazing, wonderful team of vendors from some of the very best in the industry. Melanie Feeny from Shimmer & Gloss was the makeup artist, Ashley Nitti from Mint Hair Salon was our Hairstylist, Laura Ayotte from Dandelion Willows designed & printed all the stationary and invitations, Tanis Giesbrecht baked and designed the cake and breads, and when we couldn't find a dress that fit the theme of the shoot, my very own momma stepped in and whipped up that boho wedding gown. 

And of course, our fabulous models, who bared hail, wind, stormy conditions, were easy to work with, and laughed with us the whole shoot.  Rod Anderson and Alex Kimiko thank you.
