Madeline and Matthew's backyard wedding

Dreamy. All kinds of dreaminess would explain this gorgeous backyard wedding hidden in the hills of Lake Country. When Madeline explained what they wanted for their day she said things like "casual, fun, light..." and I would say they pulled it off. These two were relaxed, and completely in love. Thank you so much for having us.

Evelynn & Chris' fall wedding | Kelowna Wedding photographer

I love when a wedding day is infused with the couple's essence. I love seeing hints of their personalities in the details they choose, the location they decide on, the little bits and pieces of themselves sprinkled throughout the day. These two, with the super powers of Sara from Top Knot Events, managed to saturate their day in all the things that matter most to them: their people, their style, their love of food and drink, their sweet son and mostly their love.

Sanctuary Garden was the perfect backdrop for the ceremony. Its' blank canvas showed off the amazing floral wreaths from Blue Sage Farm, gorgeous vintage rugs and fun ribbon wands made by Top Knot.

But the party really started at The Curious. There was a 7 course meal (by the incredible Rod Butters) a signature drink and a banjo player. Nuff said, right? Except the best part was the laughter, the tears, the all around smiles and seeing these two among their closest peeps celebrating the kind of love that infuses a whole community.

Magali & Ryan Tantalus Wedding | kelowna wedding photographer

When Magali, Ryan and I first talked about their wedding day plans, they were clear on one thing: that the wedding day be about love and celebrating with their closest friends and family. They didn't want to incorporate any traditions that didn't feel like them, and by staying true to their vision their day was full of sweet moments, kind words and love shared. 

I always have a soft spot for kids at weddings and Ryan's daughters were such bright, loving little girls.

Everything about their day felt unique to them, simple, elegant and beautiful. Wishing you all the best and thank you for asking us to preserve your memories from the day.

   The girls are 3 and 5 and Magali's wedding dress was the closest thing to a Fairy Princess dress they had ever seen. Neither of them could stop playing with the delicate beading, it made my heart burst watching.

Magali said vows to the girls. Her words were kind, sweet and heartfelt.

And I loved their reaction captured by my second shooter Tiffany. They adore Magali.
