(Please note: This Gatzke Orchard wedding was photographed well before the pandemic lock-downs of 2020/2021)
Stephanie + Mike’s Gatzke Orchard wedding in Oyama, BC was full of green leaves, laughs and love! We love traveling outside of Kelowna to see the Okanagan and Kalamalka lakes from different and lovely wedding venues. Gatzke Orchard is one of those awesome wedding venues!
The day began with Steph and Mike getting ready in different places, but with their friends and families. Both were pretty calm and just enjoying the moments before the ceremony. Steph was at a BnB on an orchard and we loved how serene her Novelle Bridal wedding dress looked just hanging among the Okanagan fruit!
The ceremony was among the fruit trees at Gatzke Orchard and offered a great view of the low mountains behind.
After saying “I do”, we dodged the raindrops with the Bridal Party using trees, shelters, umbrellas, whatever we could find! A little rain on the wedding day didn’t get us down, though. Everyone was all smiles and we had a great time!
Gatzke Orchard is conveniently located very Kaloya Park where we made use of the clouds and so light for a few beautiful portraits right on the water of Kalamalka Lake.
As evening set, dinner was served, followed by speeches (very funny!), cake cutting, and a gorgeous first dance under the string lights. Soon, DJ Justin Brown kicked it up a notch and everyone was dancing and having a grand time!
