Stephanie and Josh. What can we say? We met Stephanie when we shot Taryn + Matt’s wedding in 2013. We adored T + M’s friends and we were so pumped when Steph wanted to meet and talk about her own wedding. Once we met Josh, we were hooked. These guys are awesome. Steph is the sweetest, and Josh is the most stylish man around. It was like talking to friends at that first meeting.
Their day started with Stephanie Getting hair & makeup done at Total E’Clips Salon in Kelowna. Then the party was moved to her parent’s home where her Mother helped with her dress. Watch for her Father’s sweet smile when he sees Stephanie dressed and ready!
Meanwhile, Josh was hanging with his closest friends at the house where he grew up in Winfield, BC. His Father tended the Vineyards at Grey Monk Winery and Josh grew up at the bottom of the rows of Vines. We love it when the history and character of our client’s lives growing are part of the wedding day.
The sweet ceremony was held on the lawn at The Harvest Golf Club in East Kelowna. The beautiful gardens were the perfect backdrop for this emotional and touching ceremony. Tears and smiles abounded as Steph + Josh said, “I do” to spending their lives together as one.
We stayed on the property for family and Bridal Party portraits. The Harvest is named after it’s pear orchards that decorate the course and they offered shade and lush green tones for pictures. We even made use of the awesome waterfall they’ve installed behind the clubhouse. The ladies flowers were designed by Passionate Blooms and they look awesome!
We took our couple down the road for a few more shots by a white fence and into a private vineyard to reflect Josh’s life growing up in the winery.
The reception was held back at The Harvest where dinner and speeches (some of the funniest and most touching we’ve heard) were followed by a quick sunset photo op with our couple. We ask EVERY couple if they would be interested in spending 10mins before the sun goes down behind the mountains and it’s worth it! Just check out the silhouette!
DJ Dwayne Mollin kept things lively with dances, tosses, and more dancing! This group loves a good party! Congratulations Stephanie + Josh! T’was an amazing day!
