Kristen + Challen’s Linden Gardens wedding in Kaleden, BC was pretty awesome! These two are sweet, funny, and fun to be around! It’s also a little special for us because Kristen is our Sister-in-Law’s sister so we’ve known her and her family for about 7 years.
Kristen and the girls got ready at her bridesmaid’s home in Penticton while the guys got dressed in an RV (awesome!). Kristen + Challen were both pretty relaxed and fun to be around. Kristen’s sister (our lovely sister-in-law) handled the hair and makeup and created a fun and dramatic look for the day!
The Linden Gardens wedding ceremony was held at Linden Gardens in Kaleden, BC. Springtime is a great time for a wedding ceremony down in the garden where our couple was married under a canopy of pink flowers. The ceremony was officiated by Carly’s dad, Rev. Wayne Siewert. He’s an awesome wedding officiant and if you’re looking for someone with a relaxed and personal touch, you should definitely email him today
We popped over to the nearby Kaleden Hotel park for portraits and the wind and clouds rolled in with a few sprinkles to help us create some really dramatic and moody photographs for the couple and their wedding party.
The reception was back at Linden Gardens in the Frog City Cafe. Challen expertly catered his own wedding and the food was excellent! After dinner we snuck out for a few portraits in the gardens and had a lot of fun exploring the pathways and dancing under the trees! Back inside, Dj Shakes got everybody moving with a great collection of songs and a great attitude!
Congratulations Kristen + Challen. We love you guys and we wish you all the best!
