Ashley + Brady are two of the most genuine people you will ever meet, and so their wedding day was nothing short of everything they are as a couple. This small and intimate Sanctuary Gardens Wedding in West Kelowna was filled with the biggest smiles you have ever seen, as well as joy filled tears.
You’ve never seen such a calm bride on her wedding day. Ashley knew that Brady is her soul-mate, and she was just excited to be married to him. Ashley’s calm assuredness paired with Brady’s joyful excitement before the ceremony is just who these two are, and it was exactly how we expected their wedding day to be.
Ashley spent the morning with her best friends getting ready for the day. Her makeup was done by her good friend Samantha Ravndahl, Vancouver’s own Batalash Beauty. Her Allure wedding gown was the perfect soft blush colour and so whimsical, purchased at Bliss Bridal in Kelowna.
Sanctuary Gardens this time of year is the epitome of the semi-desert that the Okanagan is. Filled with beautiful sage brush and spearhead grass and all things rich and earthy against the blue Okanagan Lake was the perfect backdrop to Ashley + Brady’s intimate ceremony officiated by Kelowna Wedding Officiant Wayne Siewert. Ashley’s cascading bouquet by Blue Sage Farm was the perfect accent to such a lovely location.
This was a super windy day, but Brady + Ashley chose to embrace the wind, and we were excited to capture their amazing attitudes during their couples portraits.
To go along with their intimate wedding ceremony, Ashley + Brady chose to have a Backyard BBQ reception on their family’s private property. Surrounded by tall cedar trees, Japanese paper lanterns, and the most beautiful rustic farm tables and chairs from A New Leaf Floral Design, the evening was filled with quiet charm and laughter and fun.
We are so excited for Brady + Ashley, and we can’t wait to watch their love grow and grow over the years.
